As a lot of you know, cornerback/special teamer extraordinaire Dimitri Patterson is an AA favorite. Patterson made a huge play last week keeping Spencer Larson (yes, the same dude who nearly decapitated Dantrell “Macho Man” Savage) from recovering an onside kick. He also had nine tackles against the Broncos, seven of those being solo tackles. On one of his assists, he and Bernard Pollard nearly killed Andre Hall (almost positive it was him) in the flat. That high-low hit was just nasty. Patterson played a lot in Patrick Surtain‘s absence, and I’m starting to think we’d be better off long term starting the Brandons and playing the Tuskegee Tornado–I call him that because homeboy covers ground like crazy and hits like a twister–in nickel and dime situations.
What does everybody else think about Patterson playing a bigger role and soon?
