Cordarrelle Patterson on Lambeau Field: 'It's really not that loud'


I have a feeling next time Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson takes the field at Lambeau Field, he’ll do so to a loud chorus of boo birds as the talented speedster took a small shot at Packer faithful after Sunday’s 26-26 tie.

Patterson, who recently was named a starter had heard plenty about the famed Lambeau and given the rivalry between the two clubs, he was expecting quite the experience. It apparently didn’t impress him though as the former Tennessee Vol had this to say about the hallowed grounds:

“It’s really not that loud here,” Patterson said after the overtime ended with the Vikings and the Packers tying 26-26. “It wasn’t loud at all. I guess the crowd wasn’t into it like they should be. But once that overtime started, the crowd picked up a little bit.”

Patterson went on to praise Vikings fans, of course, suggesting that they’re the best fans in football and that the ‘Metrodome’ is ‘always rocking’.

In addition to four kick returns, Patterson finished Sunday’s contest with eight catches, though, only amassed 54 yards in the process.

    I thought he might blame the noise for his missing the game winning catch. LOL
