During his nine seasons in the NFL, former Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate has had the opportunity to catch passes from some pretty good quarterbacks, including Seattle Seahawks signal caller Russell Wilson and Lions QB Matthew Stafford.
This past weekend at the American Century Golf Championship, Tate spoke with Bernie Smilovitz and revealed that the best quarterback he has ever played is…
“I think Stafford’s been the best quarterback I’ve played with,” Tate told Smilovitz. “The guy can flat-out play. He’s tough and his attitude’s amazing and he just wants to play ball.”
That’s right Stafford haters, when it comes to who is the better QB, Tate believes the Lions have the the advantage over the Seahawks.
Tate went on to add that he thinks it’s “almost unfair” that Stafford does not have a Super Bowl ring.
“It’s almost unfair that he’s such a good player and doesn’t have playoffs or a ring to show for it,” Tate said. “That kind of hurts my heart that I wasn’t able to help change that.”
Golden made it pretty clear that though he won big with Russell Wilson, he does not believe the Seahawks QB is as good as Stafford.
“I think, over his career, if you put him in another organization, maybe things are different. I don’t know, because I played with some guys over my years that have won playoff games with that I don’t think are as good.”
What do you think, Nation? Do you agree with Golden Tate that Matthew Stafford is better than Russell Wilson?
