Is Cordarrelle Patterson becoming a cancer in the locker room for Vikings?
Norv Turner put on a show this week against the Carolina Panthers stingy defense, but one player is not happy with the way he is being used. While Cordarrelle Patterson would not say he was frustrated he sure sounded like he was mad according to the Star Tribune.
“The things I want to say are not going to be said,” Patterson said about his role. “You have to talk to coach (Mike) Zimmer about that and the offensive coordinator (Norv Turner). That is their decision, and I stand behind them.”
Zimmer said after the game that Patterson didn’t play the first half because he missed practice time due to a funeral. Patterson said he doesn’t know if the coaching staff is looking for more from him.
“I really don’t know. But if you find out let me know,” he told reporters. “Let’s see how this week goes and if it isn’t going like I want to, I’ll step up and have a conversation with them.”
I would be pissed too if I was Patterson. I was being punished because of a funeral? What is that….
