You know the drill. Is this the week they finally get CP truly involved in the offense again?

I'm going to be a realist, and go with 1 this week. I just don't think it's going to happen.

I went for two as well. Hoping for at least some increments.

I touch on offense, 1 gunner fumble recovery for a TD, 1 extra point and one order of fries.

I keep saying "3" but it's wishful thinking on my part.

Even if Patterson gets touches it will probably be doing something so obvious it's a tell to the Giants D.

I would like to see the Vikings use Patterson as a WR again.

I was off on the yards, but without the PI he had a TD.

Very glad to see him targeted more tonight. He also caused that first fumble, which was huge.

It was huge. Between that turnover, his 20 yard catch and run on the subsequent possession and the PI call in the end zone that you mentioned, Patterson was instrumental in helping the Vikes take an early lead. It was nice to see him getting more involved. He made a great catch on 3rd down later in the game too.

One thing I don't understand: when you look at the sheer speed he displays as a gunner and on KO returns, it's hard for me to understand why they don't take some shots to him down the field. CJ came through with a couple of deep catches last night and Bradford can clearly throw an effective deep ball. Why not use a deep shot to Patterson at least once a game to take the top off an opposing defense? It would certainly give them something else to think about rather than assuming if he gets the ball, he'll get it within 10 yards of the line. We hear about him catching deep passes in camp and practice. He's capable of doing it and you can't coach that kind of speed.

I hope his role continues to expand but I'm glad to see him getting more opportunities and making a positive impact on games.

He had several positive plays. He was instrumental in the punt return fumble as he got there first to pressure the returner. He is looking like one of those guys that where it seems like every time he is around the football something good happens.

I am pretty sure they did that on two plays at least. But the first one, pressure forced a dump off and the second one he tossed it to a wide open intermediate (Rudy?). But on both those plays I thought Patterson was doing a straightline deep

Sherels too. He reminds me of Steve Tasker for the Bills in the 90s. An absolute stud on special teams.

If so, that's encouraging. I'll look for those plays on the coaches film this week.

I could be wrong. Honestly unless I see the hair CJ , Diggs, and Patterson all look similar in the 1 second sprint across my screen haha

Jim, you must have been happy up there in Chicagoland, eating your filet mignon and drinking (I'm guessing) a stout. FINALLY! Patterson was more involved, and it seemed to be a clear commitment to him from the very beginning of the game. After his first catch, I thought it was interesting how he gestured to Diggs (I think) that he was jacked up, but needed to stay calm and just get ready for the next play. To me, it may have given us a glimpse of stuff he's working on: the mental-emotional side of being a pro.

The other thing I liked related to CP84 is that they had him run the ball; they faked it to him on a jet sweep; they threw a bubble screen to him; later, they faked a screen to him and reversed field to Diggs. In general, it seemed like he was being used both as a decoy and a more immediate threat and it was clear that Norv was consciously incorporating him into his offensive game plan more. I imagined that Jim was smiling ear to ear (but with a dissatisfaction or two on his mind too... long balls, for example).

Well, it sure looked to me as if Patterson was going deep on those plays. I'll have to look at it again.

On one of the plays Patterson was wide open and would have provided a big gain, maybe a TD, if he had gotten the ball.

Too bad the slant thrown to Patterson was tipped by a Giants defender. If the pass had more steam on it, that could have been a big play as well.

I think Scoggins scours our site to get ideas for his stories--taking the pulse of fans, his readers, to try to generate 'hits'.

Anyways, I figured this a good place for his article from today's strib:

http://www.startribune.com/cordarralle- ... 395767551/

Quote:
The forgotten man returned Monday night. He was no longer invisible, no longer consumed with being Flash.

Just Cordarralle Patterson, suddenly a man of many hats.

Patterson reappeared on offense in a 24-10 victory over the New York Giants by using his unique talent to carve out a hybrid role.

Patterson figured prominently in the game plan and turned the game in his team’s favor with a bang-bang sequence that highlighted his value.

In the first quarter alone, he played gunner on the punt cover team, lined up outside at wide receiver, inside as the slot receiver and motioned to the backfield as a running back.

I was thrilled to see him more involved and making a positive impact in several different ways. His stat line doesn't reveal how much he contributed, from drawing 2 PI calls to forcing that muffed punt throughs sheer hustle. I think he can do much more and I hope he'll get the opportunity.

Also, click on the video of Zimmer's press conference at the link above and check out his reaction to some chanting in the background. It starts just after the two-minute mark.

Its good to see that everyone has great things to say about him. Its striking me more and more that he might just be a versatile jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none type player. Maybe he wasn't doing enough in the eyes of Zimmer to get up the depth chart at position X but they are finally realizing that his in game ability in a variety of spots just makes him too useful to stay away.


Great things happen when he is near the ball; muffed punts, 70 yard punts, PI calls, 3rd down conversions, 3 missed tackles and a big gain. It would be crazy cool to see him go onto the field for a kick off, stay on as a WR, move to RB, back to WR, TE, then if we punt stay on and Gun; truly and every down player.

Enjoyed that. Worth watching the video of Rhodes embedded in the article too. He's a well spoken young man; confident, but humble too. He's turning into my favorite player.

Earlier I read a post game interview of OBJ. Juxtaposed to this interview of Rhodes, it illustrates something Zim talked about in his presser: we've got a lot of high character guys.

When asked about the skirmish and tensions between him and OBJ, Rhodes' answers reveal maturity, self-awareness, recognition of the talent level of his rival, but ultimately confidence in his own abilities. OBJ, OTH, whines about unfair refs, thinks the whole world is against him, and sounds like an entitled little punk.

Quite possibly my favorite thing about Zimmer is the culture he has created (with Rick). He doesn't put up with that primma donna BS. He demands selfless play from his guys; they are focused on cooperation and the team's goals.

Patterson seems to have paid his dues and demonstrated some things the coaching staff wanted to see.
