Good morning, Faithful. We have been waiting to see if Tank Carradine was going to finally step up this year into a prominent role with the defense. We are still waiting for that, but at least we now know that he has somewhat of a fire to him. For the second day in a row, Tank was involved in a minor altercation with a teammate. Today it involved Quinton Patton, who apparently was upset about a hit Tank put on Carlos Hyde. According to Paul Gutierrez, Patton lowered a shoulder into Tank after the hit, and then threw a few punches as Tank came after him.
I am not exactly sure if any of these altercations mean anything, but it is nice to see players working hard and having passion for what they are doing. That goes for both Patton and Tank. That could be very helpful for Patton now that he seems to have a leg up on the rest of the wide receivers for the third WR position, due to the suspension of Jerome Simpson. I hope that we get to see more of these types of killer instincts during upcoming games, as long as they don't cost the team penalty yards.
