I doubt Patterson would be playing RB if he was afraid of contact. Although we are talking about Dooley being the HC.
Even if Patterson is afraid of contact, he made the most big plays on the Vols offense.
Against Alabama Millner was opposite Patterson most of the game with help from Sunseri over the top.
Georgia also used help over the with Cummings as the main guy covering Patterson.
And you know what is going to happen if he gets that kind of attention for us? Number 80 is going to have a field day!
Like Erving said in his video, he needs to go where the offense can scheme him open. He's not a guy that early on is going to be able to read defenses and make adjustments on the fly.
Get the ball to him on bubble screens, we do that!
Get the ball to him on reverses, we do that!
Get the ball to him off play action fakes, we do that!
Get him the ball on kickoff and punt returns, we need that!
He is everything we ever wanted Jacoby Jones to be and more right now. His impact on this team could be just what this team has needed for years. A guy that is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. We have two TE's, a bad ass number one WR and a great RB as the core of this offense. Throw in a wild card like Patterson, find ways to get him the ball and watch his presence open things up for everyone else.
