if the hit was a cowboy on a seahawk it wouldn't be a big deal. it was pretty clean to me.
I was at the game and looked cheap from my angle. Complete blind side. That shot makes it look like a clean block but the angle I had it looked as if lee was moving complete other direction and was complete blind side.
Tear a Knee....or damage your spine this season. Thanks
Good block. He wasn't defenseless. Wasn't a crackback. And I bet Lee keeps a better eye out now.
I dont have a problem with the it, just Tate's behavior afterwards like he just made a spectacular play. Get up and get back to the huddle.
A team is a reflection of it's head coach.
Seattle: braggadocious, cocky and emotional.
**Dallas fans would sure love to have that Seattle team.
I was thinking about posting this but I wasn't sure if anyone else saw it. This actually made me furious last night when I saw it on the bottom line. What makes it even worse is that the loser got a 2-for in it, attacking our boy and Harbaugh.
I remember that, it was the same type of hit as well...
That was the low point of the season. He should have been penalized and kicked out of the game and then fined and suspended. I couldn't believe that not only did the boneheaded replacement refs not even penalize him, they penalized the Cowboys on that play for some trivial push out of bounds.
My only issue with the hit is that it appears he launches himself into Lee helmet first, catching Lee on the chin with the crown of his helmet.
Nothing wrong with this hit. I guess people want to see flag football.
Ah ok, after seeing that clip it's certainly not a blind side hit.
I do remember his behavior after the play however, and now obviously, and both are a bit much. Little man seems to be trying to compensate.
My only issue with the hit is not one teammate rallied to derail Tate's excitement for potentially injuring a Cowboy. The team just doesn't seem to understand or care about the humiliation the entire organization- owner,coaches, players AND fans has endured since the end of the triplet era- its prevalent in opposing team's celebrations, in penalty statistics, and media coverage. It's ok to endlessly Cowboy bash- because no one sticks up for themselves on this ballclub in forever.
That's what ticked me off at the time. IIRC, Ware was right there and he just sort of slowed to a job, right? Or was that another play?
Either way, I'd prefer they have swarmed to Lee to make sure he was ok. Then gone back to the huddle and that somebody delivered a similar hit within 5-10 plays of that one to make their point.
I don't think a lack of heart was an issue with the 2012 team overall, at all. But we definitely got out muscled by SEA. Starting with the punch in the mouth on the opening kickoff, and then going from there with them just wearing us down physically. Contrast that game with the CIN or CLE games, where they hit us in the mouth, and we really hit back. We had our moments last season. The team was in good physical condition. We just weren't prepared for what happened in that Seattle game.
Came in low? He came up under his helmet. If you see the image of the contact he comes right in under his chin. I love brutality in my sports as much as the next guy but that's cheap. I don't really want to see players with fractured jaws coming off the field after some undersized receiver felt the need to show how tough he is by throwing a cheap block.
That being said, i'm incredibly disappointed in how we responded. Seattle beat us up that game and we just took it.
He's looking right at the numbers when he aims the hit. But he's scooping upward, and ends up getting Lee's helmet. I think it was probably the kind of physics thing you'd have a hard time controlling in real time, but it's not like he was aiming for the chin or the ear hole to begin with.
i watched the video again and it wasn't exactly a "blindside" hit, but it was helmet to helmet and he got fined for it.
As an earlier poster commented that previous clip doesn't really show the angle he took. It was a cheap shot and he was fined for it, helmet to helmet. I hope we are good enough to run into these guys next season and somebody lays the wood to this bigmouth Golden Tate fool. This team needs to grow a pair and starts blowing dudes up, make offenses scared to line up against us. Oh and I guarantee Lee learned from this and will be keeping his head on a swivel.
Pretty tasteless I must agree... I hope to see them in the playoffs.
