Youre really spewing out the BS today.I hope you noticed the video of Childs while you were there.When he said that statement he was referring to if we ever picked up players besides Jennings from Packers we might need to do that.The Video from Mr Patterson himself says that its allot easier than he thought it would be.

I agree in his 3rd season he should start to really show up if he is going to be the superstar we hear he can be, or then he isn't. Time will tell for him. He has a lot of work to do but so do most if not all WRs in their first few yrs, its a process.
If he applies himself and uses his smarts he should be just fine in the Vikings O. In the meantime he can provide some return ability and extra depth at WR for the 3 or 4 very talented WRs MN has in place now.
I'm Not being a homer to say we are as talented as any team in our division and Ponder shows above average NFL talent at times but never consistently. Hopefully this will be Ponder's year. and won't have to monitor college football for potential vikings QBs.

I was saying everyone said the same thing about A.J. Green being slow mentally because of his test score & I agree it's true some players take a little longer to learn the playbook, ask Aaron Rogers from what some said about him at first was that the Packers playbook hasn't changed from the day he took the field & one of the reason's was Aaron took forever to learn the playbook & thats why they put up with Favre for the three years that Aaron was sitting. Im not saying that's true but it is what was going around at the time just as it did for A.J Green & now Patterson.

That is "all you got to say"? Good, Great, Fine, read this about AJ Green coming out as a rookie and see how much he compares to what they say about Patterson. Not even close. Green is the best young WR in the game. He does it all and then some!!! Donít compare a guy with limited catching, smarts, and route running ability to AJ Green. You lose every argument that way.
Green is a stud WR and came into the NFL that way, he didnít' need fixing and he had all the tools, instead of being a tool.(that was funny)
If patterson can come out and be like Green then every scout I have ever read is wrong about him. Green was/is very very special. He has great hands, runs great routs, can go deep, or go underneath. If I had my choice of any WR in the NFL right now I would choose AJ Green. Patterson has never come close to comparing to what Green can do. His 1 yr with the lady Vols makes him a star like AJ Green? Please.

The only comparing I am doing is the two receivers test scores, A. J Green had a 10 & Patterson had a 11 on his. I know Green was a projected top pick but the same experts had Patterson going mid first round, That isn't a receiver that showed he didn't have the hands to be a first round pick or couldn't run routs when the receivers was deeper this year then most.

Ill admit Patterson is a little strange.I dont know if anyone else noticed it but at his a initial introduction he was kinda laughing to himself to the point where Spielman and Floyd and Rhodes all looked at him .This is when their all three holding their jerseys in front of the media for the first time.But Moss was strange too.

The wonderlic doesnt mean anything Percy Harvin scored a 12 Patterson a 11.Julio Jones scored 15,Michael Crabtree 15,AJ Green 10.Patterson just needs experience.

I don't see anything strange about CP, I see a wide eyed young man who saying to himself pinch me I'm living my dream.

I know when Patterson was drafted he looked back to someone sitting with his crowd of people & he didn't look to happy. it happen when he is standing up & then looks back & make a face to what ever that person was saying.

Cordarelle Patterson is going to be a big time playmaker just like Harvin. Both are great return guys & both have about the same speed but Patterson is taller then Harvin & jumps higher & then you look at Patterson's ridiculous catch radius & reaction time, this is something not even Harvin had. maybe it's because im a Vikings fan but I can only see a up side to Patterson. I can't really say for sure he is going to be a pro bowl player but from everything I have seen & was studying on him to me he looks like he sure can be one. I think he is a very raw talent & sure the staff will need to step him through the learning stage, There isn't anything wrong with someone taking your hand & showing you the ropes.
