Elise Tate dropped a bomb on Tate’s current team, the New York Giants on social media while watching their 25-23 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past Sunday. Her thoughts are pretty clear – her husband isn’t getting the ball enough.

Tate, who signed a four year, $37.5 million deal this offseason, is currently on pace for 47 catches, 465 yards and four touchdowns.

Her posts read:

Getting so many texts throughout the game. GT WIDE OPEN WIDE OPEN WIDE OPEN. I KNOWWWWW. I mean yeah given ONE chance in the fourth quarter of course he comes down with the ball! He’s @showtimetate! SO UNDER UTILIZED. AS HIS WIFE I CANNOT EVEN WATCH WITH ONE EYE OPEN.

Same exact thing last game. one target in the first quarter – of course – an epic TD. HE NEEDS TO BW FED THE BALL. Period. Watch the film. He always comes down with the ball. His 1000 yard seasons he had targets! Plain and simple and 600+ of them are YAC! Making the most of every opportunity! @profootballfocus @nfl @espnfl rewatch this game and just point out the time after time after time he’s wide open. I’m lit. 11 years in the NFL I’ve never said something like this online, but it’s excruciating to watch and killing his stats this year but you can’t have yards on a few to no targets. He’s CRAZY. Making the most of what comes his way that’s for sure. Every time.

And he’s gonna kill me for saying all this so I’ll prob have to delete this soon so until he sees it … and his teamplayer self, gonna make me take this down. But no. fans watch games as a whole. I watch ONE player, no offense to anyone he’s my husband, but it’s excruciating to follow around 15 on the screen and see him WIDE OPEN ALL GAME, then given a chance in the fourth quarter comes down with the big TD and that wasn’t any miraculous catch Compared to his crazy highlight reels. that was just normal.

After he scores he looked in the camera and said “THROW ME THE BALL” year 11 he knows what he’s doing! HES HEALTHY! and every damn time he gets an opportunity it’s a big play. Ain’t no way this BS gonna hurt his stats this yr bc he doesn’t get targets. FEED HIM THE BALL.


Wow! Tell us how you really feel!
