  1. Even when Tate had that greasy hands fumble against Pittsburgh the other week, while unfortunate, you just can’t hate on the guy, because he’s Golden. His reliability has earned him the leeway to make a horrendous fumble at a critical point in the game, possibly a game-losing fumble.

    Calvin Johnson’s fumble against the Raven’s as he reached the endzone a couple years ago was the same deal. When you’re reliable, you get leeway. When you’re Ebron, we don’t want you anywhere near the ball.

  2. 49ers QB C.J. Beathard has completed just 50.93 percent of his passes, worst in the NFL among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts.

    That’s just throwing the gauntlet in Cam Newton’s face…
