On Tuesday afternoon, with just hours left before the NFL trade deadline, news broke that the Detroit Lions had traded receiver Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round draft pick.
After reading the news, there was a wide range of emotions from Lions’ fans which poured out on social media. Some were very upset with Lions general manager Bob Quinn for trading the team’s most consistent receiver over the past four seasons, while others were sad to see Tate leave. Then there was a group that realizes the Lions current roster, with or without Tate, is not good enough to compete for a Super Bowl, and extending a 30-year-old receiver is not wise.
While browsing through the plethora of fan reactions on Twitter, trying to find the best one, we came across what you are about to see. Rather than ruin it for you, we will just let you watch for yourself.
