The Seattle Seahawks will take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Ford Field. Seattle will look to improve upon their 3-3 start to the season, while Detroit will aim to do likewise with a similar .500 record.

Several Detroit players are looking forward to playing the Seahawks, as they played for the Seattle squad in the past. “My five years in Seattle were some of the best of my life, and you guys were a big part of that,” said tight end Luke Willson. “I appreciate the working relationship we had together and your role in covering our team. I can’t even imagine how much you all miss me.”
The same goes for cornerback DeShawn Shead and wide receiver Golden Tate, both of whom started with Seattle. “They were extremely patient with me,” Tate told MLive. “They didn’t rush me into any situations, which, looking back at it, being rushed can kind of ruin your career sometimes.” He currently leads the Lions with 37 catches for 467 yards, and is tied for the team lead with three touchdown receptions.
“I’m sure once I see Pete and (GM John) Schneider and the special teams coach and the equipment guys and the trainers, it’ll bring back some memories,” Tate added. “But I’m just trying to go into this game focused, and try to win this game. This is a big-time game for us.”
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said that he’s just as impressed by Tate as ever. “Just more of the same (from him),” he explained. “The style that he has always brought. The run after the catch, the big-play ability, exciting player that he’s always been. I’ve always loved Golden as a player, and he looks just as good as ever.”
Carroll also poke on the difficulty that the Lions will pose. “Those three guys were really fantastic guys in this program and they’re significant characters and personalities and contributors,” he said in a separate interview. “Those guys, it feels like they’re always kind of our guys because they started with us and grew up with us. It’ll be fun to play against them. We’re going to get after them hopefully and make it hard on them, just like they’ll do to us. It should be real competitive and fun and all that, but if we get a chance, we’ll visit with them, sure.”
