Patton may not be as good of a blocker as Manningham is now even with Mann seeming to struggle. For a third receiver, good blocking may be almost as important as running crisp routes and catching catchable balls. That said, I would like to see what Patton can do.
Lol I hope that isn't true. Only confirms my suspicion that this team is borderline retarded and backwards when it comes to WRs. Holding back a young, talented HEALTHY WR back because he's not an elite blocker. Christ! Blocking shouldn't be anywhere near a WRs main strengths, good route running, catching ability, and getting open/separation need to be their primary strengths, NOT blocking.
