The only thing that screams that are the voices in your own head. If you're going to make a comment, don't just make random s**t up about a player you know nothing about.
Patton's about as far from a locker room cancer as it gets. As far as character issues, that's true only if you consider being a team leader, a hard worker, being heavily involved in charities and being well liked by coaches and other players alike as character flaws.
Former La Vergne football coach Will Hester has remained in contact with Patton over the years. Patton spoke to Hester's new team at Ravenwood prior to the NFL Draft."Quinton is still the greatest practice player that I've ever coached," Hester said. "He was always the first out to practice, grinning from ear to ear. He'd want to do everything, from punt to play quarterback.
He loved being out there."Hester said Patton's commitment in college to get a chance after junior college is a tribute to his mother."She made sure he did the right things," Hester said.Patton will join big-name receivers Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin with the 49ers, who aren't expected to re-sign free agent Randy Moss.
Patton made 104 catches for 1,392 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior at Louisiana Tech."I'm open to whatever they need me to do," Patton said. "I'm trying to make an immediate impact on my team in the best way I can … an ultimate team player and ultimate competitor out there on the field. It doesn't matter what it is, we'll just do it."
OH NO, the 49ers drafted a kid that loves to play football, is a hard worker and will do whatever the team asks........oh noes.
