We, and especially the coaching staff, need to support Tate this week. This is a game that will shake his confidence severely, especially not being in the game at the end. I understand RR benching him and yelling at him for his last drive, but 19 year old kids can be emotionally on the edge. I would have preferred RR to console him after that drive the way he consoled Denard after the INT. There will be a lot of yelling and finger pointing this week, and we have to realize this kid is the main reason why we are 4-2 at this point, so everyone back off of him. This is an important point of the season and potentially, his year.
"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
