To the people not liking Golden Tate

Some people said he's only a slot because of speed and height, but he has good hands, good jump, and high points the ball. His attitude isn't favorable but if the dude can play let him play. Also on a post I asked a question to a Seattle fan visiting PoD, they said they'll miss him and his attitude isn't even that bad. Well that was just abilities now let's look at some stats

Pretty good for a run heavy offense and being a #1 right? Apparently you don't get 1000 yd season you 're not worthy let's look at a couple other top options for us.

Emmanuel Sanders

So not much difference except still no 1000 yarder so he's out. Also more catches and less yards and less touchdowns.

Winner: Golden Tate

Eric Decker

2010: 6

2011: 44

2012: 85

2012: 13

So yeah he is a bit better statistically, but is he really? First who would you do better with; Peyton Manning or Russell ( runner ) Wilson. Ok Both are better than Stafford but is Stafford a Mobil Quarterback on a run based offense or is he a Pocket Passer on a Pass based offense. I think you can answer that one. Not to mention Decker wants to be a #1 and we have one of those. But let's look at this stat I didn't list up there

Drops Percent this year:

Decker: 12.37% ( OUCH ) 15th Worst

Tate: 2.0% 22nd best ( WR and TE )

Speed ( 40 yd dash ) and Strength ( Bench )

40:

Decker: 4.54

Tate: 4.42

Bench:

Decker: 15 reps

Tate: 17 reps

so there are some impressive stats for Tate and some unfavorable stats to Decker who has some issues Tate doesn't

Winner : 50/50 Stats for Decker Ability for Tate

Had a down year is up and down and nobody knows if he could be consistent with us and that could be good and bad. Hasn't shown steady improvement and decreased although his Quarterback was below average from his bad o-line.

Winner: Golden Tate

Well take it how you see it I feel the proof is in the pudding and Golden Tate is the winner in my eyes but that's my opinion. It's really between Golden Tate and Eric Decker and Tate was better. Thanks for reading.
