Golden Tate defends Matthew Stafford from Jalen Ramsey’s criticism

Suspended Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jalen Ramsey is in the news once again, only this time he’s targeting opposing NFL quarterbacks rather than the local media.

In a recent Q&A with GQ Magazine, Ramsey blasted about one-quarter of NFL quarterbacks, calling Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen trash and indicating that former league MVP Matt Ryan is overrated.

In the very same article, Ramsey had a mixed bag of reactions pertaining to Detroit Lions franchise signal caller Matthew Stafford.

“Matthew Stafford. I think he’s straight. I don’t think he the best quarterback out there,” Ramsey noted. “But he do what he gotta do.”

Doesn’t seem to be a major tossing of shade in Stafford’s direction, right?

His teammate, Golden Tate, seems to have other thoughts.

We have to hand it to the reporter here. Reminding Tate that Ramsey was seen on the bench crying after his Jaguars lost to the Lions back in 2016 is all sorts of great.

That game saw a vastly different version of the Jags drop a fourth consecutive outing in what would ultimately be a nine-game losing streak. For his part, Stafford threw for 278 yards en route to leading Detroit to a fourth quarter comeback.
