Patterson is Digest Player of the Week

Bob Labriola
STEELERS.COM

PHILADELPHIA – In the Steelers’ 31-14 preseason-opening win over the Eagles here tonight, a bunch of guys made plays that contributed to the victory. But Damoun Patterson was someone who made more than one.

Patterson led the team in receiving with six catches for 77 yards, and included among those was an Antonio Brown-like grab in the end zone for a 29-yard touchdown that gave the Steelers a 22-14 lead at halftime. Patterson also caught two passes for 29 yards in a possession that ended with one of Chris Boswell’s three field goals on the night.

Also considered were:

He looked good. That TD catch was awesome.

As a YSU grad, I was quite proud of his performance.

Watching the Gerry Dulac and Ed Bouchette video at Pitts Post Gazette. Dulac was talking about Patterson and said it's still early but he believes there may be a spot on the roster for him.

His skill set is similiar to Heyward-Bey's, but he's younger and cheaper, so last night's performance certainly helped the argument of keeping him over DHB. He's going to get more opportunities, so let's see what he does with them.

He should make the 53 as he's WR#4 imo and can play ST. If we cut him, there's a good chance some other team will pick him up.

He's also better than Hunter imo. That guy is always good in camp, but is always invisible during the season. He hasn't done anything in his 6 seasons in the NFL. Patterson also needs to prove everything, but from someone who is getting his first chance I at least believe that he can grab his chance. I don't have the same believe in Hunter anymore.

Is Damoun Patterson the Steelers' next Antonio Brown – or the next Terrell Watson?

CHRIS ADAMSKI | Friday, Aug. 10, 2018,

If there is any at all, the fun of the preseason is defined by an unheralded new face doing something unexpected.

The star players, typically, don’t play. And everyone knows to have their eyes on the first-round pick – or, in some cases (like the Steelers this year) the highly-regarded rookie quarterback .

But when an undrafted or lower-round draft pick makes you notice him? Therein lies the value of the preseason from a fan’s perspective.

So after the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 31-14 preseason-opening victory against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday , much of the chatter surrounded a pair of undrafted rookies from smaller Ohio college programs: Youngstown State receiver Damoun Patterson and Toledo linebacker Olasunkanmi “Ola” Adeniyi.

The latter had a strip sack, the former game-highs with six catches for 77 yards and a touchdown (followed by an impressive back flip, to boot).

Patterson has the size (6-2, 190), the speed (sub-4.5 seconds in the 40) and the attitude (“I love special teams,” he said) that if he impresses in the preseason, he very well could make the Steelers’ roster.

Kid looks explosive. Has speed, and a knack for getting open. If he continues to have these kinds of performances I'd say Heyward Bey or Justin Hunter should be shown the door.

Good article. I love Rudy type stories....it would be awesome if they both end up being good players and help this year. The catch and back flip were awesome...I went back and rewatched a few times. And yeah, he very well may be a better option than Hunter or possibly DHB

Patterson's back flip showed me who strong his legs are to me is important for a WR.

He's looking good. I really hope and think he'll make the team. I couldn't figure why James Conner was covering him though, but checked and they have a CB wearing 30 too. Speaking of uniform numbers, Patterson's 83 makes me think of Theo Bell and Louis Lipps.

Good footwork. Got the corner all turned around. Definitely not saying he's AB, but his footwork looks great. I sincerely hope this kid makes the roster. I'm reading far more about him making plays in camp than I am about Heyward Bey, or Justin Hunter who have been underwhelming even by their standards.

Good article ...

Damoun Patterson: Man on a mission

LATROBE - It came begrudgingly but Mike Tomlin did admit that wide receiver Damoun Patterson "made some plays" in the Steelers' preseason opener.

Just don't tell Tomlin that Patterson has had a good camp.

"YOU said good camp," Tomlin repeated in correcting his post-game questioner.

It inferred that Tomlin did not say that, would not say that, WILL not say that.

After all, Patterson is a rookie.

But if there's one rookie who won't get a big head, it's Patterson. He's gone through way too much to ever worry about coachly semantics. Just consider his odyssey:

Thanks for posting...he really is a Rudy type story. I don't get Tomlin's reluctance to give him some due. I am really pulling for him to make the team.

I think Coach T's mentality is that you don't want to give a rookie too much credit for one decent performance in the first preseason game of the season. It's too small of a sample size at this point. I think if he is consistent throughout the rest of camp and the preseason then he'll be getting credit where credit is due.
