Sounds like a team player, plus he is a good tackler.
Maybe not. The rumor is he crossed the line and BB benched him. He is mostly remembered for the "big play" against Seattle when he came off the bench for that play.
But his tackling tho.
He was pretty bad this season. Would’ve done a better job than Rowe, but still pretty bad.
Malcolm Butler struggled early like all of the Pats' defense, but then rallied pretty well. His PFF rating was 79.2, ranked as the #51 CB, 1 behind Patrick Peterson at #50. Eric Rowe's PFF rating = 42.9 (#108 CB).
According to sportrac, MB's market value is $13M per year. Obviously that was before MB's benching in the SB. MB fits SW's CB criteria because he's physical and can mix it up well in zones and man, but the Cardinals can't afford to pay 2 CBs in the $13-14M range...or 3 CBs if they retain HB (nickel CB) at a high salary.
and they would have the shortest secondary in the league.
Sure he can tackle, but man he continued to look bad in coverage throughout the season. Give me a good coverage guy that’s a mediocre tackler over a mediocre coverage guy that’s a good tackler in a CB.
yeah...if a dude cant cover he BETTER be able to tackle...or else he is selling insurance
"Got caught burning weed, missing curfew, argued with coaches when confronted, story is on it's way out to public."
So he did all that between Tuesday and Saturday or over the course of 5 years he was with Pats?
You are probably right, Southpaw, but in some ways, I think that is a bit unfair to Butler. Others in this thread are right that he has not had his best season this year, but I don’t think it’s correct that he has been outright bad. If I am not mistaken he has also played the most snaps of any player on their defense, and obviously that says something about how their defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, trust him and how Butler has been important to their success.
I think it would be fantastic to have Butler on the opposite site of Patrick Peterson. It probably won’t happen since Butler should get a huge contract this offseason, but then again, some teams have invested huge money into two or three players in the cornerback-group, so it’s not a crazy thought.
day before the game is supposed to be the case
I hope you are not referring this tweet? The twitter account has Bellichick in the profile photo. jeebus.
