Niner Talk Bonus: Quinton Patton’s Future

Posted Jan 2, 2014

This week's bonus round of "Niner Talk" looks at the future role of rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton and answers more questions from the 49ers Faithful.

It's time for the playoffs and another bonus round of "Niner Talk."

I received a number of quality questions for this week's show, but in the interest of time I couldn't fit them all into one show. So low and behold, we have found a home for your latest 49ers questions.

Let's get right to them.

That's a great suggestion. I'll see what I can do. For now, check out all the other guys we’ve "Mic’d Up."

You never know who will be next.

I can’t tell you, Mike McCarthy and Dom Capers might be reading.

If I had to guess, here’s a few clues... 15, 81, 7, 21, 85, 11, and maybe 74.

I could see that side of it. I think it's better to keep it rolling. There's always a No. 1 or No. 2 seed that loses in the Divisional round because they've been off for a week. While it's tougher to win four playoff games to be a Super Bowl champion, it's not out of the question.

The Ravens did it last year.

Most definitely. Just look at the end arounds we used against Arizona and the pass to Joe Staley. The cooks in the offensive kitchen always have plays for the later stages of the season. And now that it's win-or-go-home time, the offensive staff will unveil everything with the intent of advancing to the next round of the playoffs.

Carlos Rogers was sore after his hamstring injury, but it's improving. "I don't really want to place a stance or a figure on it or define it at this point," Jim Harbaugh said when asked about the 49ers cornerback who has not missed a start in three seasons with San Francisco. "We'll see. Sore yesterday, better today, continue to see how the healing goes."

My guess is ot’ll likely be a game-time decision. c

Thank you, I appreciate that. For those who missed it: here you go.

Also, this inside look at The 'Stick was also well received.

Quinton Patton will go up and compete for a ball wherever, whenever.

Harbaugh raved about Patton's competitiveness at Louisiana Tech. "I got the sense he was a very competitive player. He would compete for balls, compete during the route."

The rookie wideout has the tools to become a deep-ball receiver, too. I like his demeanor and his unselfish play. The fourth-round draft pick know he's here to learn from Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree. He's been preparing all season for time to shine and it paid off in Arizona. I'd expect bigger and better things for in the future.

It goes a little something like this:

The 49ers beat the Packers and the Saints beat the Eagles. Then the Saints have to beat the Seahawks and the 49ers beat the Panthers. If all that happens, then it would be the 49ers hosting the Saints at The ‘Stick.
