It didn't take long for former Notre Dame All-American, Golden Tate -- to make the highlight reels in the NFL. Tate was activated for yesterday's game against Denver and all he did was return a punt for 63 yards and a few minutes later catch a 52 yard pass. Unfortunately, he didn't make it to the end zone -- either time -- but, he's got the Seahawks attention. After the game, Pete Carroll was fielding questions as to "why didn't you have Tate in the line-up last week?" Oh, by the way -- Tate was the back-up punt returner for this game. He only got back there after the #1 guy dropped a punt. Here's a link to a video of Golden's punt return -- ironically, he was tackled by former Domer; David Bruton and a second link to a news story on Golden's debut:

The Jimmy Clausen era in Carolina begins this Sunday when the Panthers host the Cincinnati Bengals. The former Notre Dame star will be replacing Matt Moore who's had a rough start in their first two games. Panther Head Coach John Fox was pleased with Clausen's relief effort in their loss yesterday to Tampa Bay and made the announcement at his meeting today with the media. Here's a link to John Fox's press conference:

Found this video last night of former Domers; Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate singing the Notre Dame Victory March as part of the 2010 Upper Deck NFL Rookie Trading Card shoot. The two were invited to the competition along with guys like Tim Tebow, Colt McCoy, C.J. Spiller, Jahvid Best, etc. The winner received a pair of LeBron James autographed shoes. Guess who won!
