Golden Tate led the Seahawks with five catches for 88 yards in the Seahawks’ 45-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. But Tate also left coach Pete Carroll anticipating bigger things from him as the punt returner.

A recap of the events at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Sept. 23, or “Tell the Truth” Monday as the players reviewed Sunday’s 45-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars:

As in Golden Tate, the wide receiver who had five catches for 88 yards in Sunday’s 45-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. But also the Golden Tate who has become the punt returner this season.

After three games, the elusive and explosive Tate is averaging 11.2 yards on 10 returns, which ranks fifth in the league. But coach Pete Carroll sees bigger returns in Tate’s future.

“Golden is doing a tremendous job,” Carroll said during his weekly day-after Q&A session with the media. “He’s a tremendous catcher back there. He’s so confident.”

And Tate is still learning the finer points of returning punts. He did it 16 times for a 12.6-yard average as a rookie in 2010, but had only one return the past two seasons when since-departed Leon Washington was handling the job.

“He still has some decisions to learn from, he still hasn’t been in all the situations yet,” Carroll said. “I really trust him. He’s got natural catching ability back there – his outfielder instincts and how to find the ball really shows up. He’s very good at it.”

With the chance to become special at it, as evidenced by the number of times Tate has come close to breaking a long one.

“That’s when you have the right guy back there, when everybody’s in anticipation something’s going to happen,” Carroll said. “And we really think it will. There’s no question in my mind he’s going to return some and he’s going to score a couple touchdowns.”
