The Quinton Patton Tank of Truth

If he is fully healed this month AND Perrish Cox or LMJ can at least equal the contributions of Kyle Williams as a punt returner (not incredibly difficult), I hope they go with Patton. Time to see what he can do. Patton didn't do much earlier on, but on offense we weren't doing much earlier in the season. With the renewed commitment to the run game, and help in the form of Crabtree and Manningham coming (even if they aren't 100%), and attention on Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin, Quinton Patton should be in much better position to succeed. I honestly which they would do more to get other guys involved in this offense.
I hope this guy comes back this season so we can get rid of K.Williams.
I doubt they cut KW as it's no easy matter to find a punt returner who doesn't turn the ball over. It it were easy it would already have been done.

That's the exact reason I think he will be removed. Even if you take out the NFCCG he has been extremely shakey the past few years

This year he has been more dependable than at any other time. He fair catches often but that may be a plus in the punt game. How many possessions has the team given up this year through a bonehead move on his part? I can't think of one...which is really unusual!

Patton is doing fine by sitting/healing and studying the game. He'll contribute only if the FO doesn't place him on IR to make space. I still think he has what it takes to shine... hope we get to see some of it later in the season.
Does anyone know his exact injury? Is it a simple fracture/break or is it more of a turf toe deal that can tend to linger? Would love to see this guy get playing time this year when he isnt trying to be a #2 but more being a #3 or 4 as a slot guy or outside player giving the starters rest. He has what it takes to be successful, it would be a shame if the front office IR'd him and kept KW just to make another roster spot. Hell QP can fair catch with the best of em haha.

The only thing I heard was a stress fracture in the Foot. Not sure of the severity, but it supposedly wasn't bad enough to keep him out the year.

anyone who can catch a punt will do, not like kyle williams ever returns anything anyway. he just fair catches. i think they should put cox at PR, he was pretty good there and LMJ will be KR. kyle can f**k off

If by dependable you mean he fair catches well, then I agree. With that said he has put the offense in situations with their backs against their own endzone several times by fair catching inside the ten.

He just doesn't add anything to the team and if you hear his name it's because he did something to hurt the team.

exactly. he contributes nothing as a receiver and nothing as a return man. for every decent return hes had he has fair caught a ball he shouldnt have deep within our territory or not run when hes had open lanes, run when hes had nothing and lost yards. i think harbaughs comments about LaMichael James getting more involved are the beginning of the end for kyle williams

Yes, that's part of it, but how often has he fumbled this year? I've seen a number of good teams ruined by not finding anyone who could catch a punt without fumbling a couple per game. So, no, I don't want just anyone back there and if they had someone better I can't imaging the coaches saying, "Well, his dad is a big shot in baseball so let's keep him in there deciding our destiny!"
I like the fact that the roster is so deep, they have guys who are basically redshirting and prepping for next year. I think Dial might have been another one of these guys if there hadn't been so many injuries on the DL.
needs to be a team player and offer to go on IR

he should know he has a place on this team and can play WR
