Pretty big downgrade from Beasley

Hasn't been good in about 4 years.

And that's playing with A Rod

I shutter to think what the #s are gonna look like with Dak

Could have done a lot better for $5 million


Beasley was literally only above average once.

Why is his 600+ yards and 4 TDs a big downgrade from Beasley’s 600+ yards and 4 TDs?
Speed, route running, health.

Also we can ignore going from Rodgers to Dak like that won't have an impact because we're just happy to have any sort of news, but it's not gonna change the disappointment once the season starts.

Moncrief

Bellamy

All got $5mil or less. I could go on with names too

We signed a guy who hasn't had a good season since 2014

“Shudder”

If you’re going to make an asinine post at least have the decency to do so with correct grammar.
Try and keep it to football. Thanks

What was asinine? Follow that thought through

Don't get emotional and look for the first insult you can. Make an argument or raise a point.

Save the bitterness for the dinner table

Cobb is at least as fast as Beasley - Beasley is very quick, but not fast. Cobb is considered an outstanding route runner, so that’s not a worry. I will give you health though - Cobb had a difficult 2018 in that regard. If he’s healthy though, I don’t see that there should be any drop off from Beasley.

None of those receivers are better than Cobb and none of them I wanted over Cobb. Again stop. Moncrief? Sidney Moncrief.

Just an example of how ridiculous this claim is:

Since 2013, Patterson has averaged 27 catches for 321 yards and 1.3 TDs per year, all of which are worse than EVERY SINGLE YEAR IN COBB’S CAREER. Cobb had a 9 game stretch from 2014-2015 where he scored more TDs than Patterson has in his entire career combined.

You can let yourself out

I would disagree on the route running. When he still had speed he was a decent route runner but never a technician like Beasley.

The health was more than just last year too. He's missed multiple games for the past 3 seasons

Ok well you can keep living in 2014 all you like.

In 2019, Patterson is a far more useful and versatile player.

It’s just hard to take someone seriously when their posts read like my 2nd grader’s initial rough draft.

You’ve been sufficiently dissected from the Xs and Os angle by others, and I’ve forgotten more about football than you’ll ever know. Talking at length with you about the intricacies of the game is frankly beneath me.

There is not a single objective metric that supports the claim than Cordarelle Patterson is or ever has been a better NFL receiver than Randall Cobb.

Oh, and they play completely different positions, only one of which we were in the market for. But I’m sure you knew that.

This is the post of a lonely bitter man.

I'm sorry things didn't work out. I truly am, but that's not my fault. Please don't use me as the outlet for your pain.

You're unable to seriously discuss anything football related. That's why you make these angry posts instead

Since there no response ill tell you exactly what happened.

Teams knew he was sitting back on routes because he does have great speed running in a line. So they as they saw him sitting back, they started getting him on hook routes that left him flat footed. After a few of these they started getting him on them seam and 9routes because that hook route was in his head.

Teams knew he doesnt have the ball skills to jump routes. So they used that against him on routes they knew were easy to get on him. He never adjusted because he just couldnt. Can he work on that this offseason, yes but it remains to be seen if he can put that into the game.

This is hilarious. First he’s too slow, then it’s that he can’t turn, he plays the lesser WRs, now it’s that he sits back on routes because he doesn’t trust his speed.

...and now we’re back to his straight line speed. Dude. He runs a sub-4.4 and is one of the fastest DBs in the league.

Honestly, this would be an impressive troll job. He’s fast, fluid, really aggressive, and excels in man coverage. Yet you’d have me believe he’s too slow, doesn’t have good hips, sits back on routes, and is better in zone.

Can you point me to the games that illustrate your hook/9 theory. I’d love to take a look, and after that doesn’t hold up, I can’t wait to hear what’s next.

I am just dreaming of the nightmare that a 4 receiver set featuring, Cooper, Gallup, Austin and Cobb presents for opposing defenses. Who do you double team and who do you leave open?

Patterson has made the Pro Bowl, 1st team all pro and 2nd team all pro in the last 3 seasons.

Cobb has made 1 pro bowl (the year of our Lord 2014, that you're so in love with), and nothing else since

Patterson can play anywhere. He could easily lineup in the slot. His return ability would be huge for us.
