Lions WR Golden Tate feels the team should not have let the refs become the defining factor

tateThe Detroit Lions fans are still bitter this morning after the bad call in yesterday’s game that cost the Lions the game against the Cowboys.  Golden Tate the Lions wide receiver however is not happy with the outcome, but understands the team needs to do more to win the game.

“I was unaware that you could have an unofficial review by looking at the Jumbotron a few times, and then go back, take the ball all the way back, and overturn it and make it fourth-and-1. That’s a crucial part of the game, but however, I do not blame that on the deciding factor of us winning and losing,” Tate said, via the Detroit Free Press. “I think we got to do a job. We can’t leave it up to the officials or them having home-field advantage. We can control that, we can control it if we just go out and get the first down so there’s no questions asked. Run the ball, catch the ball, whatever we need to do, so don’t leave it up to outside resources, leave it up to us because we can control that.”
