TateSEATTLE — Seahawks Wide Receiver Golden Tate expected to face some Packers fans’ backlash a week or two after his famed “Fail Mary” grab in the last-second win against the NFC North team last season.

But a year later? Packers fans are still mad, he recently said on Twitter.

According to, Tate has received a spat of tweets as the Seahawks prepare to face the Green Bay Packers Friday at Lambeau Field for the team’s third preseason game. Tate — who caught a disputed 24-yard pass from Russell Wilson in the last second the game — told the onslaught largely amuses him.

“Yeah, it’s been pretty entertaining to read,” Tate said. “I’m not letting it bother me any. What they say on Twitter back in Wisconsin doesn’t affect me any.”

Tate and Packers Defensive Back M.D. Jennings have made peace following the jump ball, with Jennings reportedly signing a photo of the infamous catch with the word “robbed” beneath the two players.
