"As a professional football player, injuries are part of the game. So when a team signs a guy, they know they're taking a risk that could happen," Tate said. "Obviously we would be more dangerous with Percy (Harvin), but with or without him, I still feel like we have enough playmakers to succeed this year.
"I think coach (Pete) Carroll has done a great job of building up this team good enough that if one of the main guys goes down, we still have a chance to compete," Tate added. "That being said, we are going to miss him. He's a huge playmaker and we had big plans for him in this offense, but we're not going to be weeping without him."
Assuming Sidney Rice returns from his jaunt to Switzerland with his knees in good working condition, the Seahawks should continue to score points. A big reason why is Tate, an Around The LeagueMaking the Leap nominee who led all Seahawks receivers over the final 11 games with 42 catches, 635 yards and five touchdowns.
