Golden Tate doesn’t feel Seattle’s offense is being overlooked


The matchup between the Seahawks defense and the Broncos offense has had people buzzing since the moment both teams booked their passage to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate counts himself among that group. Tate said at Monday’s media session that he’s “excited” to watch the two units slug it out against each other on Sunday and, as a result, he understands why they’ve been drawing so much attention over the last couple of weeks. He doesn’t feel like the Seahawks offense is getting short shrift as a result, though.

“No, not really. At the end of the day, in order to win they’re going to need offense, defense and special teams,” Tate said. “Like I said earlier, it’s no secret that the number one offense is going against the number one defense. That’s going to draw attention naturally. I’m excited to watch it myself. I can only worry about what I can control. I can control how I practice this week. I can control how I play on Sunday and I’m just going to leave it all on the field.”

Tate, who led the Seahawks in catches and receiving yards this season, said he expects a “great challenge” going against Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey on Sunday. The Broncos’ resurgent run defense will also have a great challenge in trying to stop Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and those are just a couple of reasons why there will be plenty to watch when those units lock horns.

  1. Marshawn Lynch has more DUI’s than playoff wins.

    This is why the Vikings have such a great franchise.

    All our players are good people & clean records.

    The Vikings Way.

  2. Your “The Vikings Way” just made everybody who read it let out an involuntary laugh.

    Not a good state of affairs for that franchise I guess. Enjoy the Super Bowl watching the Seahawks/Broncos.

  3. ^ Vikings didn’t seem to mind having Jared Allen and his multiple DUIs on the team for a while.

    I guess the Vikings Way is the same as every team’s.

  4. L.O.B.! Russell Wilson will surprise with throwing to Harvin, Tate, Baldwin, Kearse, etc.

  5. Seattle is the whole package. Offense, defense, and special teams. With Harvin fully integrated into the game plan expect the offense and special teams to be that much better.

    Denver fans who think that “pot roast” will be able to stop Lynch are delusional. They like to point out that their pass D is better than the stats they put up because teams were always throwing in order to catch up. Well, that means that teams aren’t trying to run the ball in that situation. You can’t have it both ways. Seattle WILL try to run the ball, believe that.

    And if I’m right, and that run defense is a little softer than we’ve been led to believe, Seattle’s offense might explode. And if that happens, God help Manning because that defense will pin it’s ears back.

  6. Does anyone remember what happened on that boat in Minnesota that one time. Most ridiculous incident in the history of the NFL.

    I think the hawks O could put a bit of a surprise j to that D and that secondary.

  7. If Denver’s pass D was better than the stats indicate because teams had to pass against them to keep up…..then they would be giving up a lot of yards per game….but the yards per comp, yards per att and avg qb rating against would be ranked high.


    16th in ypa
    22nd in ypc
    20th in qb rating against

    Not so good….

  8. I heard that Denver has a plan to keep Tate in check.
    The Broncos secondary will distract him with maple bars.

  9. Who is this Golden Tate character ? I didn’t even know Seattle had an offense. I thought Richard Sherman played offense and D. ? TEAM Sherman is all we have been hearing about.

  10. After Packers game:

    Tate: I know I had the ball.
    ESPN reporter: Did you push off?
    Tate: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Go steal some donuts, Golden.

  11. In no particular order, this is how I see the scoring in this game…IMHO
    Denver: they will score 2 passing TDs; kick 1 FG. = 17
    Seattle: they will score 1 passing TD; 1 running TD; 1 pick 6; 3 FGs. = 30

    It will not be a blowout but it won’t be close.

    Seahawks 30
    Broncos 17

    GO HAWKS!!…3elieve RW3

  12. Man it must be painful to know that the seahawks are in the SB. Go back under your rocks til preseason haters while the seahawks get ready for the game. Regardless of the outcome, Seattle is in the SB and your team is done for the year!

  13. Seattle’s team reminds me of the 2001 Patriots. Strong defense, 2nd yr QB and no name offense that relies on mistake free football.

    If the pressure gets to Peyton, this won’t even be close. Game will come down to the trenches.
