WR Golden Tate wants to see Detroit consistently win and stop being known as the “same old Lions”, and would like to see this trend starting this year, after the team once again made it to the NFL playoffs. Pay per head software services know that many fans out there certainly wouldn’t mind seeing the Lions win more in a regular basis, and can’t wait to see how they’ll perform this coming season.
“I think it’s time for us to consistently, year in and year out, win ballgames,” Tate said when he spoke on Tuesday with the Detroit Free Press. “I think we have the personnel. I think we have the coach, the coaching staff. I think we have a heck of a fan base.”
Tate, who last year was the one to lead Detroit, recording 99 receptions and 1,331 receiving yards, said that the Lions wants to accomplish more in the sport, and not only win games.
“It’s time. We’re trying to shake ‘the same old Lions.’ We’re trying to become — I thought we were good — I think we’re trying to become elite now. I think we’re trying to compete with the Packers and give them a run for their money and take over our division year in and year out,” he said.
NFL fans and pay per head software services know that being consistent winners will not be an easy task at all for Detroit, as since 2000, the team was able to reach the playoffs in only two occasions – once in 2011 and again in 2014 – and in that length of time they were only able to make winning records in three occasions – 9-7 in 2000, 10-6 in 2011, and 11-5 in 2014, something that gave the NFL world and fans alike a lot to talk about.
Even though Detroit lost the services of powerhouse DT Ndamukong Suh during free agency, they’re still keeping Tate and Calvin Johnson – receivers who could prove to be vital in the Lions’ struggle for consistency in the game. At the beginning of free agency, the Lions filled the empty spot left by Suh when they made a trade for Ravens DT Haloti Ngata.
The Lions’ fans are looking forward to a very good season for the team, and are confident that they’ll find the consistency they need despite the difficulties.
