Cordarrelle Patterson sticking up for his Atlanta Falcons on Twitter
Cordarrelle Patterson has been a fan favorite amongst Atlanta Falcons fans and the love for him will only grow after you see what he has done most recently.
He has made statements on Twitter quite often, most notably was his clear desire to resign with the Falcons during the past offseason.
Now he is speaking for all of us on social media as he has made a statement on his opinion about that horrendous roughing the passer penalty against Grady Jarrett.
Cordarrelle Patterson is standing up for his Atlanta Falcons on Twitter
Cordarrelle Patterson may have missed the Atlanta Falcons’ matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that does not mean he isn’t going to sit back and allow the Falcons to be screwed over by the NFL refs.
Obviously, Grady Jarrett was inexplicably flagged for making a perfect sack on Tom Brady at a crucial point during the game. It cost the Falcons the ability to complete a big comeback against their NFC South rivals.
Cordarrelle Patterson isn’t just going to let this situation slide into the background as he has made his thoughts known on Twitter. First, he tweeted this:
All of us Falcons fans are right with you Patterson, it was an inexcusable mistake by Jerome Boger.
But, that wasn’t the only thing that Patterson tweeted out on this frustrating Sunday afternoon.
Yes, he has set his profile picture as Jerome Boger announcing the awful roughing the passer penalty that screwed over the Atlanta Falcons. Cordarrelle Patterson is amazing, no other way to put it.
He is obviously angry, like the rest of us, and he is sticking up for his team who was robbed of a chance to win the game and take first place in the NFC South. He should keep that as his profile picture for as long as possible because the NFL is going to ignore it as long as possible.
The more publicity this gets, the more likely we are to see something change and possible punishment for terrible calls like this.
Having an NFL player put this front and center on their social media is a statement. Credit to him for doing this as most other players, if not all, would never do this. He is clearly passionate about his team and teammates.
I might just go buy a Cordarrelle Patterson jersey right now as he is just a special person and one of my personal favorites, just like every other Falcons fan.
