    Re: BSPN: change coming at right CB?

    Kyle Arrington was covering Moss in practice according to a photo this week.

    Arrington to Unseat Butler?

    Reiss suggests the possibility:

    Change coming at right cornerback? - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston

    I'd be a little surprised, but Arrington is a beast on STs, so who knows...

    I didn't see the last series of the Jets game. After the last pick, I had enough.:rolleyes: Did Arrington look any better than Butler?
    Honestly, other than the rook, none of the DBs really impressed me.

    Re: BSPN: change coming at right CB?

    It would be an odd move to me, seeing as Arrington has never really played full time on the defense at all, let alone a starting position.

    It's also possible this is a matchup decision based on the Bills personnel. Maybe they feel Butler's skills matchup better against the slot receiver this week than the outside guy opposite Evans.

    Not starting at RCB doesn't mean he's benched. These days, the nickel corner/safety and a second interior d-lineman should be viewed as "starters" in this 3-4 defense. They play a ton.

    Re: Arrington to Unseat Butler?

    If you bench Butler because of 1 bad game as a starter then you bench Brady as well....he sucked in the 2nd half as well

    Its ridiculous both ways

    Re: Arrington to Unseat Butler?

    I hope so. Maybe not right now against lowly Buffalo, but I would let it be known that if Butler (or anyone else for that matter) can't get the job done, then someone else is going to get the opportunity to replace them. No positions are "safe", you have to earn your playing time, and continue to earn it every week, every half, and every snap.

    One? Dating back to preseason, this kid has had a few bad performances in a row. Nonetheless, I agree that it may be too early to pull the plug on him or even reduce his role. Hopefully, this article is more conjecture than reality.

    Re: Arrington to Unseat Butler?

    So Butler not turning his head around on the ball thrown to Edwards in the Endzone which would have been an easy pick - if he had- instead was a TD, is the fault of the coaches not making adjustments? :confused:

    And what does Butler have to do with the offense? Actually what does your statement have to do with Butler's play at all?

    If you want to bash the coaching staff, fine. But at least do it in a way that doesn't make you look like an uneducated football fan.

    Re: Arrington to Unseat Butler?

    Ok now you are just showing your ignorance. Judgemental? You don't say...he's a F'n coach, its his job to be judgemental.

    And I have never seen BB take an action out of spite! So please give me an example of him doing something out of spite instead of what was best for the football team. Just one. :cool:

    Re: Arrington to Unseat Butler?

    Yes he had a terrible game, but...

    This I agree with, though.

    It's like he just needed someone to yell "Ball!" on most of those plays. But as far as people saying it won't happen; If we know anything about BB, if he's practicing it, he's thinking about it, and therefore it's possible.

    Arrington has impressed me, at least, the few times I've seen him in coverage.
