Boos bounce off Tate at Lambeau

Most people are not in their comfort zone with 11 angry men bearing down on them, and thousands more screaming from the stands.

But Golden Tate will tell you he is not like most people.

“I really enjoy punt returning because I get the ball, and I just get to be myself,” Tate said. “I get to find a way to make a play and hopefully boost our offense and give us better field position.”

Tate faced Green Bay at Lambeau Field almost a year after his controversial winning touchdown catch against the Packers at CenturyLink Field on Sept. 24, 2012.

Fans booed Tate the first time he was on the field to return punts. Some fans wore shirts that said “Worst Call Ever.”

Tate took a punt back 53 yards in the second quarter, but it was called back because of offsetting penalties.

Tate said he took the boos as a sign of respect.

“I was excited to make a play, especially here after what had happened in the past,” Tate said. “But I will say this: Packer fans for the most part have moved on from what happened almost a year ago. Obviously you have a few (people) who still want to hold on to it, flip you off and be classless. But for the most part, I have respect for Packers fans. They’re a lot like our fans. They’re very passionate about their team.”

Tate also looked much more comfortable as the Seahawks’ starting punt returner. He has some big shoes to fill in taking over for Leon Washington, now with New England.
