    Well obviously, Thomas wasn't being traded. I'm pumped to see Tate's time has come.

    So my assumption is that Alexander had an extension worked out.

    Hopefully AD and BB are on the same page now.

    Let the Brandon Tate era begin...I will say that it's pretty impressive for a guy who blew out his knee last Oct to be on an NFL practice field a year later. That tells me a little something about him. Good luck kid!

    JMO, but it says more of our **** up with Galloway than a credit to him. Ofcourse if he can become a stud, I'll gladly change my mind :D

    Disagree. They wouldnt shove the kid on the practice field if he wasnt physically or mentally ready- regardless of the Galloway situation.

    Is BB there, or is he too busy frantically looking for a third receiver?

    Practice means nothing. If he's capable of practicing and learning things for the future, why not have him practice rather than have him sit and rot for a year? Galloway is gone, you need someone for that roster spot. I don't see too many other options BB has other than to try out Tate.

    He's with the linebackers and is currently not having much luck there.

    Exactly. However, I believe that Tate is fully healthy. If he wasn't, he'd just be IR'ed and we'd stick with what we already had when Galloway was scratched.

    I'm pumped up to see what Tate is going to offer. I actually hope that he can come in for some reps on the offense. He was better than Nicks in college until he got injured and Nicks is producing pretty well right now. Not saying that Tate is going to be the second coming of Randy Moss or Larry Fitzgerald, but he could contribute. Plus, he was dangerous in the return game in college as well.

    I don't know. I tried reaching Clayton to see if he knew, but he was too busy talking on the phone with Pete Prisco telling him how much grade A trim he bangs, the huge fish he caught over the weekend, and how he didn't used to look like tweety bird until a mishap occurred during a rare moment of brain activity which caused his head to partially implode.

    Don't worry, the doctors told him it is unlikely to reoccur.

    Grade A trim...........Still in complete shock over that.

    In the flesh :D

    No, I just don't think making it to the practice field once an utter dissapointment was released has much to do with what Tate has done to get onto the field, rather than what has happened to force him onto the field.

    Don't know what the circumstances were surrounding AD's benching, but hopefully it lights a fire under his ass and he comes out with a vengeance.
