Golden Tate, Denver's David Bruton: Teams Know What's Coming From Lions Offense“They’ve had a high tendency to show a particular play, especially a wrap-six, so usually the No. 2 receiver sits down about five or six yards with a guy running a dig route right behind it. We were just alert and once I saw a running back chip before his release, I knew what was coming, so I just read Stafford’s eyes, broke on the ball and was able to make a play.”
9 Penalties, 3 Turnovers Doom Lions In 24-12 Primetime Loss To Denver“That’s why we’re 0-3. We’re hurting ourselves. No one in this league can match us or play against us unless we hurt ourselves and we’ve been doing that for three straight weeks.”

So up until that time, you’re in a constant state of frustration.”
