Patriots' Malcolm Butler Furious With Super Bowl Snub

Patriots' Malcolm Butler Furious With Super Bowl Snub

Because if they hadn't made a decision to bench cornerback Malcolm Butler - Butler, and the man who replaced him, Eric Rowe, didn't find out about it until right before kickoff - New England may have won its sixth Lombardi Trophy.

Malcolm Butler said the New England Patriots "gave up" on him after he did not play on defense during their Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. I can't wait to find out what really happened.

Something smells rotten in Denmark ... or at least in Foxborough. But it's a decision Belichick won't live down anytime soon. Just about everyone was talking about Butler, a 24-year-old kid (at the time) who used to work at Popeyes.

The fact that Butler didn't know he'd be out - and Eric Rowe didn't know he'd be replacing him - until shortly before kickoff suggests that something happened on Sunday or Saturday night.

Belichick is regarded as the Grand Master of halftime adjustments. Bill Belichick didn't divulge many details other than to say he did 'what was best for the team'.

The dominant services sector undershot expectations in January, confirming an impression of a slowing wider United Kingdom economy in early 2018.

Surely, Belichick didn't suffer from a massive brain cramp on the biggest stage.

Remember, this is a man who pulled veteran cornerback Kyle Arrington for an unknown undrafted rookie named Malcolm Butler in Super Bowl XLIX.

The move did not sit well with Butler.

The Eagles were prepared all week that if realistic opportunities were there, they would take them. "That's about it", Butler told Reiss. "I don't know", Stephon Gilmore told the media. "I'm sure he felt he could've helped. I'm just anxious about the Eagles", he told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport before Sunday's big game.

"I appreciate the question, but it would be a much longer discussion", Belichick said Monday.

Vincent Kompany: 'Burnley got what they fought for against Manchester City'
City took the lead in the first half via a stunner from Danilo , but Johann Berg Gudmundsson's late equalizer grabbed a point for Burnley .

"I ain't got nothing to say", Butler said in the locker room after the game. It just makes sense. While Lattimore has played exceptionally well in his rookie season, adding Butler would only make that defense better.

Whether it was due to this rumor, or whether he's heard some things personally, former Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner fueled the rumor with an Instagram post in which he said Butler isn't the first to be busted for weed or curfew violations. "You were hurt/burnt where he was needed tonight", Browner said of Butler in another post.

Butler was caught on camera during the national anthem.

Only Rice (eight) and Emmitt Smith (five) have more Super Bowl touchdowns than White.
