Golden Tate says it is time to stop the negative talk about the Lions

Golden Tate is a pretty vocal person but lately he has proven to be a pretty amazing football player. While he was a solid player in Seattle, he really tore it up last season for the Lions. When Calvin Johnson went down with an injury Tate stepped up and bailed out the Lions a few times. He ended the season with 99 receptions, 1,331 yards and 4 touchdowns. Tate is ready to help the Lions shake the negativity from the media.

“I think it’s time for us to consistently, year in and year out, win ballgames,” Tate told the Detroit Free Press. “I think we have the personnel. I think we have the coach, the coaching staff. I think we have a heck of a fan base.

“It’s time. We’re trying to shake ‘the same old Lions.’ We’re trying to become — I thought we were good — I think we’re trying to become elite now. I think we’re trying to compete with the Packers and give them a run for their money and take over our division year in and year out.”
