The Quinton Patton Tank of Truth

I am Crabtree's biggest fan, but the more I see of Patton, the more I am blown away. I am beginning to think that he will be our leading receiver THIS year.

At first glance, it might look like he did the same thing that Moore did; just juke the defender and run by him, but it was much more than that.
Patton caught the ball, and runs UP FIELD to the inside, then, in an instant of time, he changes his mind and moves BACKWARDS and to the right, and backs out of where he was originally going to change course to the other side of the field. Then he has the speed and control to find the best lane down the sidelines. All of this was done on pure instinct, with extreme quickness. Reminds me of something Victor Cruz would do.

This wasn't just some simple lateral movement juke (which he has also done), this was a WOW play.

I've been saying he reminds be of a little slower version of Victor Cruz all along, but the two will play very similar roles in their respective offenses, IMO.

Patten is freaking awesome. Need to see more than a TD dance before I can compare him to Cruz.
Can't stop laughing at #35 of the chargers after that sick juke
i like how everyone panic when crabtree got hurt.

The juke and explosion into that lane is a work of beauty regardless of whether he did it with raw instinct or combined with homework.

Not sure if the wideout should get credit for this initial block on #35 and then his block upfield on the safety.
he's amazing
Excellent pick. Love the kids change of direction.

Boldin and Vernon will probably be one and two. Patton could certainly be the explosion the offense needs

Patton has been very impressive in both the preseason games.

The next game, the next nineteen really, is for real.

I like Patton. Want to see what he can do in a real game. One more week !

If he can contribute to converting a couple of 3rd down conversions I would be happy. Wouldn't be surprised if he gives more.

Mrs. Crabtree?
ESPN listed him as a sleeper fantasy pick.
When I was watching him in college, he didn't really seem that big. Now in the NFL though, he looks bigger for some reason. Usually its the other way around, players look a lot bigger in college and then look like kickers when they get to "The Show". He looks big and he's playing BIG! Loved everything about this kid from flying into SF on his own dime, to making one handed catches because of a broken finger, to asking the vets like Boldin and Nnamdi for tips on his route running, to Kap saying that he has a natural instinct to get open and now him making plays with our Vanilla preseason looks.

If he keeps this up the only thing left to decide is a nickname! I keep yelling Q at my TV, but thats Anquan's, with a last name like Patton, we can come up with something!

Easy ones come to mind like...The General, General Patton or General Q, but we may have to think outside the box..General Patton's nickname was Old Blood and Guts....would be good if he was a LB. What do you guys think?
Tone down a little -- remember this was against the Charger's 2nd and 3rd string defenses.
