The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers have traded barbs about PEDs. When 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that he had noticed it and questioned what the Seahawks had been using the Seahawks fired back.

First it was Brandon Browner saying he would like to ring the neck of Harbaugh. Now it is receiver Golden Tate sending words Harbaugh’s way.

When asked what he would do if he lined up against Harbaugh, Tate said the following.

“I’d be on offense trying to score a touchdown on him. Defensively, that’s a little different because they tackle and they can really be aggressive. I’m 5-10 and 195 pounds; I’m not going to try to run over anyone,” he said before referring to one of the more memorable moments of the 2012 season,” said Tate.

“But I would try to give him the Sean Lee treatment. I would do that.”

The league office says the block that Tate gave Lee was illegal because he launched himself into Lee, striking him in the chest and chin with the crown of his helmet. Tate was fined $21,000 for the hit on Lee.
