Golden Tate’s Golden Gifs Part One

If there’s one thing Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Golden Tate knows, it’s how command attention. That, and make amazing football plays that are best suited to GIF format for our enjoyment. From his time back at Notre Dame to his current tour of “make everyone in America hate you that isn’t a Seahawks fan,” it seems time to make a post dedicated to the best of “Tate-ing.”

New York Jets v Seattle Seahawks

Let’s start back in his Notre Dame days, for this is when it all began. Oh, a band is in the way? No problem:

P.S. If you never saw Tate in college, here’s a sample:



Once the Seahawks nabbed him, it didn’t take him long to keep things fresh in our old blue-on-blue:

2011 Celeb

But it was when Tate got more playing time in 2012 that his personality started to shine through. The Seahawks debuted their new duds in the home opener against Dallas, and Tate wanted to start out with a bang:

dallas hit 2dallas hit

Know. My. Name.

2012 Dallas know my name


2012 Dallas ouch

If Tate hadn’t already earned a negative rep from the rest of the league for that hit, the magic continued the next week against the Packers.

First was this all-too-easy long bomb TD:

And then this little game-winning play you might have heard about:

2012 Packers mary

A win is a win is a win, right Tate? I’m sure people will forget about that play any day now.



A 2-game home stand against Minnesota and the New York Jets provided some typical Tate highlights:

Flying High, indeed.

What did Tate do against the Jets? Oh, let’s see. First we had this impressive TD complete with a shuffle INTO a superman pose.

Then Golden decided to show off his left-handed QB skills:

When Tate got done showing off more of his trucking talents:

2012 Jets bump

We got to feast our eyes on the “Goldilocks Giggle” after this hurdle move:

2012 Jets goldy

Let’s see that one more time:

That Jets game was something, but we were only halfway through the season!

As we continue into 2012 and then this season, Tate has shown he has plenty more clutch plays and controversy left in him.

Continued in Part 2.

    It’s good to see that somebody else realizes how much of a tool Golden Tate is. My god, if I was a coach, I’m sacrificing one of my players to put him in his place.

  3. Hmm, I guess you misunderstood. I actually love Golden Tate. Great talent and passion. He could stand to be a bit smarter, but I find him entertaining and don’t mind as long as he’s productive.
