Could Golden Tate finish his career as the best Lions receiver ever?

Could Golden Tate finish his career as the best Lions receiver ever?

The question isn’t as insane as it sounds when you say it. The Detroit Lions have a reputation for futility given their postseason struggles during the Super Bowl era, but the team also has had some of the best players to ever lace up cleats and don a helmet. The team has three Hall of Fame corners who are often mentioned as the best to ever play in Lem Barney, Dick Lebeau, and Dick “Night Train” Lane. Likewise, the team boasts the best running back in history, Barry Sanders, and one of the best receivers to ever play in Calvin Johnson. And yet, in 2017, we’re watching a player...

Notes: Several Lions make midseason all-pro teams

Notes: Several Lions make midseason all-pro teams

Halfway through the season, several Detroit Lions players are getting recognition for their efforts. Now that every team have passed the halfway point in their seasons, several publications put out their All-Midseason teams. For Pro Football Focus, Matt Prater made their first team, while Glover Quin and Golden Tate were honorable mentions. MMQB only had one Lions player on their list, and it was neither of the three mentioned above. Rookie Jamal Agnew earned a spot as the return specialist thanks to his two punt return touchdowns. ESPN followed suit, only naming Agnew to their list. We...

Lions-Steelers inactives: Golden Tate, Jace Billingsley ACTIVE for ‘Sunday Night Football’

JACE! The big question heading into tonight’s “Sunday Night Football” matchup was whether Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate would be ready for action after suffering a shoulder injury in the second half during their last game against the New Orleans Saints. Tate’s injury has recovered much quicker than we all expected, and it was reported even before the inactives were listed that he was planning to suit up on Sunday night. Tate was officially listed as “Questionable” on the injury report, but will be ACTIVE. With Golladay out, this is huge for the Lions’ offense. Starting...
