Cordarrelle Patterson ties NFL record

Cordarrelle Patterson needed just one year in the SEC to earn first-team All-Conference honors as a member of the 2012 Tennessee football team. Monday night, on ESPN, the former JuCo prospect from Hutchinson Community College took a step closer to NFL history.

During the opening second-half kickoff of last night’s contest between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears, Patterson fielded a drive five yards deep in his own end zone before returning it for a 105-yard score. It was his first of the season and the eighth of his career, tying him with Leon Washington and Josh Cribbs for the most in NFL history.

 

If Patterson finds the end zone on one more kick return, he’ll be in sole possession of most all-time on the NFL leaderboard, which would beg the question; is he the greatest kick returner of all-time? We’ll cross that bridge if we get to it, but it’s hard to deny Patterson is in some pretty elite company right now.

They never throw it to him. Seems strange. With his height and speed, he reminds me of a Larry Fitzgerald type. But hey maybe he's just another Devin Hester. That's not a bad thing. The one really screwy thing watching him play on the bears team is when they call a play for Anthony Miller. Does that screw with any of you old school vol fans?

Well, CP draws a lot of coverage. He's one guy the defense doesn't want to be targeted.
