Lions WR Tate rips Former Lions coach Jim Schwartz
Wide receiver Golden Tate ripped the former Lions head coach Jim Schwartz Tuesday on WMGC-FM, because Schwartz was carried off Ford Field when he led the Bills defense to a huge win against the Lions.
“I thought it was so disrespectful. So disrespectful,” Tate said. “I didn’t like it at all. If I knew I wasn’t gonna get fined, I would have snatched him right down off the shoulders and threw him on the ground, personally — but, you know, obviously, I couldn’t do that. But, you know, if that’s what they feel like that was the right thing to do, then so be it. But I just thought it was a bit disrespectful to come on someone’s home field, because you have a past with them and kind of do that. So, you know, it is what it is. Hopefully he feels better for doing it.”
Tate didn’t stop there.
“It’s a terrible gesture. Just being a spectator, that’s not the first time he’s done some things like that,” Tate added. “And one thing I heard that — I don’t know how true it is — but I heard it was planned. … ‘We’ll do this if we win.’ That’s a total douche move.'”
