While at the game I thought that Tate looked for help from the officials on every ball he didn't catch. He also was jawing with our corners after every single play, and I thought should have been called for taunting on a touchdown. I just watched a replay of the game and I was absolutely right. Literally every time that he is thrown to and doesn't make a catch, the first thing he does is turn and talk to the officials. Not a classy player by any means.
I agree, him and Floyd instegated alot of the back and fourth with the corners. Tate tried getting bailed out every time he didnt catch it, even staring at the ref, hand on hip until the umpire behind threw the flag, i thought that was complete garbage. Who cares, we got the last laugh....Go Blue
Although, Cissoko was sure doing a lot of celebrating for a guy who was getting beat all day.
Very true as well, i agree, i got myself yellin at the screen at both Tate and Bouba, the arm crossing thing pissed me off considering he did it on a couple plays where Floyd and Tate dropped passes that wouldve been TD's or big gainers, dont celebrate luck.
I think part of it stems from our corners playing physical with them. The WRs and CBs each had their hands on each other and its only natural to try to get the call from the refs. Players in every sport try to influence the decisions of the officials.
Just shut your mouths and play the game beeyatches!!!
I'm not going to complain about Golden Tate. Boubacar deserved at least one 15-yarder (when he pushed Michael Floyd back down when Floyd tried to get up). For being a relatively quiet kid publicly, he needs to run his mouth less - not only on the field, but to the police. I'm not a fan of his attitude. I guess it's time to change the avatar...
