The Quinton Patton Tank of Truth

So Patton will be the kick returner during the regular season? Wasn't expecting that.

The best way to get a new guy conditioned to the game is to give him all the reps you can, in whatever form they might take. So working in the slot, handling kicks, all that...yeah, it makes sense.

Anyway, all that aside, this guy is FUN to watch and he is having the time of his life which I think is infectious and will resonate with and galvanize the rest ot the offense, IMO. I loved the pick in April, and now I'm smitten. Nice job Harbaalke! And Quinton, sorry man, but don't wait by the phone for Dancing with the Stars phone call.... ;)

His nickname is The General.............
I don't know what his combine 40 time is or whatever, but he's got football speed. It's like his feel and instinct for the game makes him seem faster than he actually is. Like a certain HOFer with the initials JR. (I know, there's no comparison just yet.)

I stated this last year.



Jerry Rice-Athletically unimpressive prospect from a small southern college.

Terrell Owens-Athletically unimpressive prospect from a small southern college.

Quinton Patton-Athletically unimpressive prospect from a small southern college.




Yeah that just happened.




Not saying anything, I'm just saying.......how cool would it be if he became a premier WR as well.

I might not remember the exact words my uncle used. It was a long time ago, but he did not like, maybe even hated, General Patton.

Where do these fables come from? I haven't seen many if any arguing that he wasn't fast enough to play WR. I've seen comparisons to a top deep threat in the league, Victor Cruz.

And so far he has not shown he can consistently over the top of the defense 30-40 yards like Cruz has done for years. He's had a couple great catches for TDs and we're happy for it,...but the speed that's been referred to (getting over the top of the D) has nothing to do with those catches.

HIs last TD was a screen pass...pretty sure his speed did have something to do with that one

And like I said we're happy to see him have the speed to take a a screen pass 40 yards against backups.

But this isint the same as stretching a defense and having safeties stay back due to your history of going over the top. The threat of screen passes don't stretch a defense.
