Texans RB Ben Tate Calls Houston Fan Base Wishy Washy

It looks like someone is on their way out of Houston. Houston Texans RB Ben Tate is a free agent at the end of the season and nothing signals his departure like a good old shot at the home team’s fan base. Check out what he had to say about the Houston fans after yesterday’s loss:

“These fans here in Houston are so up and down and so wishy-washy,” Tate said. “I’m just shocked at that because this organization has come a long way.

The Texans lost to the Oakland Raiders yesterday and the fans in Houston was booing their home team. They have expected more out of their team and they were letting the home team hear it. I guess that is what happens when fans come with expectations and the team fails to meet those expectations.

Tate finished the game with 88 rushing yards on 14 carries and that comment calling out the fans. He will be one of the top free agent running backs this offseason and likely will be wearing a different colored jersey next year.
