MT: Quinton Patton’s Work Ethic

Posted by Taylor Price on May 3, 2013 – 10:26 AM

The 49ers were excited to see Quinton Patton’s name available when it came time to make the No. 128 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Louisiana Tech wideout had 24 touchdowns in two seasons, both of which he was given first-team All-WAC  honors. San Francisco knew they were getting a competitive player in the 6-foot, 202-pound wideout, but they were blown away when Patton tried to visit team headquarters earlier this week.

“He’s just a good, solid, all-around receiver,” general manager Trent Baalke said of Patton after the draft.

Jim Harbaugh liked Patton’s eagerness to get to work with the 49ers, but it turns out, Patton’s made a habit of logging extra hours on the job.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee both caught up with Patton’s college coach, Sonny Dykes, to hear more about his hard-working ways.

Santa Clara’s Super Bowl bid could receive a major boost based on a pending vote in South Florida.

49ers.com’s offseason coverage included stories on Daniel Kilgore, Glenn Dorsey and Garrett Celek.

    Does anyone notice Colin Kaepernick’s footwork when throwing from within the pocket? He doesn’t set his feet confidently. It’s one of a number of technical things he needs to correct going into this year if he’s going to be on a Top 100 list after 2013.

    This is the same Top 100 series that last year included Tim Tebow. It means very little. It’s also ironic that the most complimentary player was Richard Sherman, and yet you don’t see any footage of Kaepernick playing against the Seahawks in that reel. Does anyone wonder why?

    Man, I’ve not had this sense of foreboding since 2010.

    “tim tebow being on a top 100 list ? isnt he unemployed right now ?”

    As of now, he is still homeless in the NFL. Therefore, it is wise not to make more of Kaepernick’s appearance in the NFL’s 2012 Top 100 list than is appropriate. If Colin Kaepernick has a 2013 half as good as some people here thought his 2012 season was, he will be on the list again next year.

You obviously know absolutely nothing about the game of football because you are the only person on the face of the Earth that is questioning Kaepernicks ability, skill, and what is going too be complete domination by him next season. Ohhh ya he will be on that same list next season except higher. Get off this site because you r obviously a Seahawks fan douche.

    “You obviously know absolutely nothing about the game of football because you are the only person on the face of the Earth that is questioning Kaepernicks ability, skill, and what is going too be complete domination by him next season.”

    Micah: I have never been a Seahawks fan, and I am not the only person who thinks Kaepernick has been handed the 49ers’ starting quarterback role prematurely (not to mention, dishonorably). Your entire argument against mine is predicated on the basis that mine is the minority opinion. Perhaps we could discuss this if you actually provided a *reason* why my statement was somehow incorrect. But before you do, watch the Top 100 video of Kaepernick again, and watch the three or throws that he makes from the pocket (not the rollouts). If you know half as much about football as you think you do, you’ll see what’s wrong with Kaepernick’s footwork.

    If you agree with 11yearswithalex’s misleading, extreme, and/or unprovable claims concerning Alex Smith, it proves just how far from reason and understanding you have strayed. He is the foremost example of the kind of forum user that should be ignored. 11yearswithalex will deliberately spout baseless and malicious falsehood that can be easily overturned, so if you want to commend him for that, you only earn for yourself the same distinction as someone that ought to be ignored.

    You may feel the same way about what I write, and yet the undeniability of the things I have stated in regard to Kaepernick compels you to at least respond. Unfortunately, the argument has ceased, and all that is left is name-calling. It’s a shame that insulting, degrading speech somehow becomes a substitute for legitimate discussion.

    blahblah. At least 11years is not always bashing Kaepernick and THE 49ERS like you do. Try writing something positive for a change and maybe you will gain some respect. We all know how much you love Alex but it is truly time to let him go. A new season will be upon us soon. SO LET IT GO KNOW!!!

  32. By phatalerror on May 4, 2013 | Reply

    11 was fundamentally incapable of understanding what Alex Smith contributed to the 49ers because he doesn’t understand football. His opinion was absolutely media-controlled. Smith orchestrated back-to-back game-winning drives in the 2011 Divisional Playoff against the Saints, and yet 11 didn’t have the sense to grant Smith the dignity of even a tepid endorsement. For that reason, “11 yrs is the worst niner fan ever”.

    You can’t even compare me to 11 as to the manner in which I make my criticisms of Kaepernick known. When I had something positive to write about Kaepernick, I did. When I had something critical to write about Kaepernick, I was explicit and comprehensive in my explanation.

    This isn’t about Smith anymore, except that people keep coming on here making dumb statements about how much better Kaepernick is than Smith, and I don’t wish to let those stand because such comparisons are made unevenly, even disingenuously. If Kaepernick is the quarterback of the future for the 49ers, that will be readily apparent within the first half of the next season. As for Smith, he will succeed in Kansas City because they are committed to him.

    tanglung, I don’t need your respect. 11 has yours, which means yours isn’t worth much.

    I doubt you have anyone’s respect cuz you just have not earned it. It’s one thing to have an opinion, but to constantly BASH over and over is another. I really don’t care what you think of me. But you don’t see me disrespecting (BASHING) THE 49ERS. Only a fake fan would do that. And that’s how I see you.

    Phatablablah. I have always and will always see 11 Years with Alex as an idiot as I have been disagreeing with him since this time last year when he was bashing Alex. But you are no different than him in that you just won’t let it go. Kap is our QB, but you want to take every opportunity to bash him in exactly the same fashion 11 Years did. You want to think you are superior and different than 11 years because it helps you sleep better at night. The reality is the only difference you have with him is you are more articulate than him but you are both of delicate and fragile egos & emotions.

  36. By phatalerror on May 4, 2013 | Reply

    We’re you really a fan of the 49ers in 2004? They earned the top draft pick the following year. Did you not bash anyone that year? Nobody?

    Since we can agree that the fans of the last-ranked NFL team probably aren’t content with that, why does one have to wait until the illness is obvious before treatment begins? Or, without the metaphor, what purpose is served by my coming on these boards only once everyone else has caught up with reality? If I do know football, my projections will be accurate. If my projections are inaccurate, I will be pleasantly surprised (shocked might be a more accurate word).

    But go ahead: Call me a fake fan. Because name-calling is all you’ve got.

    In other words, let it go and quit whining Phatablahblah. Too many dudes are acting like women these days with all the excessive drama. Phatablablah you may want to check your testosterone levels…I believe the estrogen is taking over. We have a QB who “has a chance to be one of the greatest QBs of all-time” ~ Ron Jaworski

    As a 49er fan we should ALL rejoice and be happy. Instead we have pessimistic, ego drven, drama queens going on and on and on and on about a QB who is not with us anymore. I have never bashed Alex but for Gods sakes open your eyes. Alex was good but his ceiling just was not as high as KAPs. Its just reality. He is our QB now regardless of what you think so stop crying and root lil lady.

During the bad times, and yes 1994 I never disrespected (BASHED) THE 49ERS. Even when I did not agree with every move they made I’ve always stuck by THE 49ERS though THICK and THIN and I always will.

    People can say they a fan of a team and has been for this long or that long all they want on these blogs. No one can comfirm any of it. But what you can tell through words on these blogs is people motivations. When people are more motivated to be right than wanting to see the team win a championship all the answers you wish to know are there for you to READ. No one is going to admit or say they are not a real fan – so please stop with that nonsense like someone is going to say, “You are sooo right”, “I am a fake”. Wake up and READ the words. The answers are there: Phatablahblah IS A FAKE FAN & name calling is all you deserve cuz you full of donkey doo doo.

    “A Fake Football Fan (or Glory supporter) claims they support a football team with huge interest, but in a matter of fact have only supported them for them winning a trophy or because their friends support them . Many fake fans support Manchester United, but there are many others. Many fake fans “swot” up on their desired clubs facts and spit these facts out at you and every possible moment, to prove their support for the club. But in real terms, they never have watched them in the skin and have only watched them on television. Also, some fake fans my buy replica shirts as well, and wear these at every possible moment to prove their support.”

    More of this, and less of, ‘[today] Kaepernick is a Hall of Fame talent’, and I have no issue. It’s not the optimism about Kaepernick that bothers me. It’s the deifying of a player who runs a misdirection offense better than any other offense that I take issue with.

    I don’t appreciate you implying that I am not a true 49ers fan on the basis of my not approving of the quarterback change, and your suggestion that old school quarterbacks (which include the likes of Joe Montana) were only “good” in relation to Kaepernick is proof in itself that it is you that does not understand what it means to be a 49er fan.

    You don’t know your history, boy.

  72. By phatalerror on May 5, 2013 | Reply

    Colin Kaepernick is perhaps unique in NFL history as a quarterback who with no career starts was named the starter midseason with a talented offense and a scheme custom-built around his strengths and weaknesses. If he had been forced to play out the entire season from week one, league defensive coordinators might have accomplished what they usually do to inexperienced quarterbacks: Find the weakness, and exploit it. They often manage to do that within the season (see Cam Newton, who got 59% of his total [throwing] yardage for the year during his first eight weeks and declined steeply in production thereafter).

    Compare that to Andrew Luck, who as a rookie in week 16 of 2012 handily topped Cam Newton’s rookie season total [throwing] yardage record. Andrew Luck did that out of a Pro Set Offense. His team went to the playoffs. Read that again: The rookie starting quarterback of a depleted roster that went 2-14 the prior year went to the playoffs.

    There’s absolutely no question that with all due regard shown for Kaepernick’s athleticism, he was the beneficiary of a short schedule for defensive coordinators and a favorable seeding of post-season opponents. The typical Kaepernick supporter disregards those facts, certain that his physical measurables alone justify the quarterback change.

    Do you remember the “Run and Shoot” of the 1980′s? What about the remixed century-old Option offense run by the Broncos in 2011 that got them to the Divisional Playoff with Tim Tebow at quarterback? No one even knows where Tim Tebow will play in 2013.

    Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and yes, Alex Smith, don’t need non-standard offenses to string together drives and put up points. Aaron Rodgers has publicly expressed his doubts that the Read Option offense will last in the NFL. So the big question really becomes, If Aaron Rodgers is right, can Colin Kaepernick adapt to the reality of the NFL?: If you can’t throw from the pocket, you can’t succeed long term.

    The NFL evolves, but a lot of the ‘new offenses’ that came to the NFL have since gone and have been marginalized to a few trick plays in an offensive coordinator’s playbook. I’m not really sure how much football you have watched over the years, but based on your post, it wasn’t a decades-long affair.

    I was really upset when Walsh replaced Deberg with Joe. I think waawaawaa will, if he in fact does like the 9ers, will come to that realization this was one of the best franchise moves to date. Although, in my opinion Deberg was better than Alex will ever be. Gee, come to think of it didn’t Deberg eventually end up with KC!!!

    blahblahblah is at it again…..alex is gone and he is still talking about him…yawn feast…..listen alex smith would have went done as one of the biggest first round bust if it wasn’t for harbaugh and the niner defense…..as far as “custon built offense for him” hello??? what did u think harbaugh did for alex? he basically did everything but suit up for alex…talk about custom built….harbaugh held alex’s hand for every game….he doesn’t have to hold kaps hand cuz he knows what to do…he doesn’t need to hit his pads before the game to get him fired up cuz kap is all ready fired up he doesn’t need that sense of ok alex we can do this rahrah stuff…cuz coach truly believes in kaps talent…as far as building a system around a qb all teams do it…they get guys to fit the system that the qb feels works to his strengths…

    one more thing u r comparing alex smith who played 8 years in the nfl to kaepernick who played 2 years…..i don’t want to hear about the coaching staff…even if the coachs sucked for alex he still could have put up numbers in 6 of those years…..don’t sit here and tell me it’s all the coachs fault…even if the team was bad if he was a good qb he would have still had some big games….he is a below avg. qb at best…..

    “even if the team was bad if he was a good qb he would have still had some big games”

    He did, especially in Singletary’s final year. But you forget about that.

    “Like I have said, and done, put up stats that showed the opposite of what his stats are saying and those are ignored.”

    ‘Like you have done?’ When did you ever put up a relevant statistic that wasn’t filled with asterisks? I shot your statistics down, one by one. I didn’t ignore a single thing.

    In Singletary’s final year Alex was replaced by David Carr and Troy Smith. Did you forget that?

    You have “never” shot down one thing I have ever put up their statistically…”never”…Go back and look!! No Brag, Just Fact!!

    One more time and then I am done…Why do we think Kaep is the man and a hall of fame type player at just his second year in the league…Harbaugh starts him over who you say is a hall-of-fame QB himself; many player he plays with says they believe it (Willis, J. Smith to name a couple) and analyst (see blog above); has taken a team to the SB in only his 10th start; has broken a couple of 9ers records following the likes of Tittle, Brodie, Montana, Young…)…

    Do I really need to go on you stupid Sh!t!!

    Oh…I forgot something that Alex never did…Kaep is the first person that arrives for work-outs during the season (and my guess is one of the last to leave), unless you want to call people like Vernon Davis and his other teammates liars and they are making it up so Kaep can look good.

    The great QB’s put in their time and don’t brag about it. We have one outstanding/upstanding you man as our QB and I am proud of it!! Alex put time in, but not what Kaep does and that may be part of the reason he lost the starting job…comprendy dude!!!

    Phatablahblah…you prove to us more and more that you know diddly about football. You really bringing up the run & shoot? First off, Are you really comparing KAP to Tim Tebow & Are you really lumping in Alex with Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers & Peyton Mannings career? Seriously? And we all know Aaron Rodgers was “playa hatin” on KAP…give me a break. Are you that stupid? Kap will be great in ANY offense! OPEN YOUR EYES IDIOT.

    BTW: Phatblahblah you do realize the jaugernaut offenses of the Patriots the past 6 years in a sense, used the hurry-up spread offense which used many of the run and shoot principles: hurry-up or no-huddle play call-since you did mention Tom Brady. Just saying :)

    “In Singletary’s final year Alex was replaced by David Carr and Troy Smith. Did you forget that?”

    History for those who need to be schooled:

    Singletary’s 2010 record with Alex Smith, Troy Smith, and David Carr quarterbacking: 5-10
    Interim Head Coach Jim Tomsula’s 2010 record: 1-0 (38-7 against the Arizona Cardinals)

    In that final game, Alex Smith threw for 276 yards and 2 touchdowns without turning the ball over. Troy Smith was conspicuously absent.

    David Carr replaced Alex Smith following Smith’s shoulder separation on a sack in the 49ers’ week 7 game against the Panthers. Carr’s relief performance was awful, and he didn’t throw again for the 49ers after that game. Troy Smith was named the starter the following week. Troy Smith got victories in his first two starts against the 4-12 Broncos and the 7-9 Rams. He then got shut out in his third start against the 10-6 Buccaneers. Troy Smith reaffirmed his reputation for beating bad teams by beating the 5-11 Cardinals in his fourth start, but losing to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Packers in his fifth start. Alex Smith got the next start.

    When Singletary named Troy Smith as the starter in week 16, he was given the performance everyone expected by then: Troy Smith’s offense didn’t put up any points until the end of the first half, and gave up a safety on a fumbled shotgun snap. A Ted Ginn punt return for a touchdown kept the game within reach. In the meantime, Smith threw a pick and had six possessions three plays long. With less than ten minutes left in the game and Mike Singletary’s job on the line, Troy Smith was benched and Alex Smith came in. The score was 14-22. Smith led the 49ers on a 52 yard drive that ended in a field goal. 17-22. Danny Amendola returned the following kickoff 84 yards, and a defensive stop leading to a field goal held the score to 17-25. On the following 49ers drive, rookie right tackle Anthony Davis failed to block Chris Long, who stripped Smith from behind during his throwing motion, and the fumble was recovered by the Rams. Anthony Davis’ poor performance continued on the following drive with a time-eating sack.

    The point is, To say that Smith was replaced by Carr is misleading, because Carr relieved Alex Smith due to injury, and to say that Alex Smith was replaced by Troy Smith disregards the fact that Mike Singletary lost his job because he benched Alex Smith in favor of the far inferior Troy Smith. But you folks aren’t about honest reporting. You have your axe to grind, and grind it you will. Yet you are the ones that have ignored history. Your words are worthless.
