Bill Belichick characteristically bristly, cryptic when asked about Malcolm Butler's benching

Bill Belichick characteristically bristly, cryptic when asked about Malcolm Butler's benching

Butler, who's ingrained in New England lore for his late-game heroics in the Patriots' win over the Seahawks in the 2015 Super Bowl, didn't play a single snap Sunday night, despite being on the field for almost 98 percent of the team's snaps this season.

Belichick also answered no when asked if Butler had been benched for disciplinary reasons.

After scoring three touchdowns in last year's Super Bowl victory over Atlanta, White struck again with a 26-yard touchdown TD run in the second quarter.

Speaking after the game Butler, as quoted by ESPN, said: "They gave up on me".

"We put the best, the players out there and the game plan out there that we thought would be the best tonight like we always do", Belichick said.

Something smells rotten in Denmark ... or at least in Foxborough.

What made Johnson Bademosi the decision to play at third cornerback?

Here are the five teams who could sign Butler this offseason. There were no reports of Rowe practicing with the starters in the sessions leading up to the game, suggesting that Belichick's decision was not football-related.

Belichick is regarded as the Grand Master of halftime adjustments. Butler previously admitted that he didn't have the best season, but said that he was focused on playing football, not his contract.

Surely, Belichick didn't suffer from a massive brain cramp on the biggest stage. "I didn't know how to feel watching that [expletive] without my homie playing, without Malcolm [expletive] playing", Browner wrote. As it turns out, it came as quite a shock not only to the viewing public but even to the players themselves.




NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said Butler's benching was a result of what he called "a flawless storm of issues".

"They gave up on me".

"I ain't Miss Cleo", he said, referring to a famous self-described psychic.

What impact Butler could have had on the game we will never know.

Butler took more snaps during the regular season than any other member of the Patriots, which left many puzzled by the coaching staff's explanations for their decision.

"It would be a much longer discussion". I have nothing but great things to say about the organization.

If the defense looked somewhat capable in Super Bowl LII maybe Bill Belichick would look like a genius.

Doesn't make any sense, right?

Three years after Butler sealed a Super Bowl win for the Patriots with a last-minute interception, the cornerback did not play on defence due to a "coach's decision".

The 49ers, of course, have a glaring need for a starting cornerback opposite promising rookie Ahkello Witherspoon and upwards of $100 million in cap space to play with. They defeated Browner's former team, the Seattle Seahawks, in the Super Bowl.
