http://www.examiner.com/houston-texans-in-houston/kubiak-tate-needs-to-grow-as-a-player Nice job as usual from Alan/AJ. Tate is essentially a rookie, having never taken a regular season snap before this season. Solid yet unspectacular with decent inside power game to complement Arian Fosters big play ability. I feel Tate will replace Ward as Texans #2 while Chris Ogbonnaya proves his case to be #3. How Kubiak compares Ben to Arian also tells me that Foster IS in Texan long range plans & a shiny new fat extension will be hammered out sometime in the very near future. For the time being, Tate must continue to carry himself like a NFL veteran even though he is really just a rookie while developing a complete package of skills, blitz pick-up, down field blocking, receiving, recognizing his cut back lanes & oh yeah, finding the end zone more often would really help too.
