We’re a family program on 98.5 The Sports Hub, and this website is an extension of that. So when Cordarrelle Patterson gets caught on TV grabbing Jets defensive tackle Henry Anderson firmly in his private area, it’s hard to describe without getting too vulgar.
Toucher & Rich said “balls” Monday morning. So we can say balls? Patterson grabbed Anderson by the balls.
Naturally, he had to be asked about it after the game. As funny as that shot was, his reaction was even better. He didn’t exactly mince words.
“The man was all in my face, trying to put his [stuff] in my face and I was trying to get his ass up off me. Simple as that,” Patterson told the Boston Sports Journal’s Christopher Price. “He don’t want that. I’m a grown man. I don’t need anyone’s ass and [expletive] and balls in my face. That’s disrespectful. Simple as that.”
Sorry for cleaning up the language, but like I said we’re a family program here. Use your imagination.
Anderson claimed he somehow didn’t feel Patterson full-on grasping his situation like he was hanging off the edge of a building.
“If I had felt it, there would have been … if he had actually grabbed, like—you know, my package there, I probably would have done something,” Anderson said, via SI. “But, I didn’t really feel anything. So, I don’t think he got a hold of it.”
Well, Patterson certainly got a hold of something in there. The lesson here is to not stick your stuff anywhere near Patterson’s hands, or he’ll grab a hold of it like he’s been holding on to the football as a running back lately.
Patterson wasn’t spectacular when he took handoffs like the rest of the Patriots running game was against the Jets. But he did pick up a big two yards on fourth-and-1 in the third quarter, which led to a go-ahead field goal for the Patriots.
Clearly, though, the most entertaining part of Patterson’s game was the ol’ ball-grab.
