    Supposedly the Pats made him a generous offer, this is the writers words, not mine, and butler thought he should get more. I forget now who said that the other day, might have been holly but not 100% sure. Id like to know how much it was and how much he ultimately ends up getting.

    When is the last time the Patriots made a generous offer to a player already on the roster? For purposes of the question, ignore the JAG scenario.

    I saw something wrong. Someone here pointed out that his body language didn't look good, at all. Either way, we probably won't know what the hell was said in the locker room.

    Not too often which is why I said his words not mine, but will be interesting to see what he eventually gets and wonder if they could have worked out something here..

    Their main adjustment offensively was simply not calling stupid sh!t on 3rd down.

    umm, he didn’t trust him. one source said as much...get over it. butler wasn’t even playing that well in the postseason or down the stretch and gilmore’s play vs jax at the end of the game and the attention gilmore got from that, probably set this whole thing off.

    did you read that rowe had a good game and allowed like 14 yards receiving after his tight coverage on that jeffery td and that seed by foles?

    you need to get 2015/2016 butler out of your head

    he would have gotten eaten alive unless he was put on torrey smith. we needed to solve the eventual agoholor problem.

    You have to have your head up your ass if you believe butler would not have done a better job on Agholor than Chung/bademosi

    neither one of them should have been on him. i’ve said this 100 times. you people who barely watch the rest of the nfl don’t realize agoholor was more of a threat on underneath routes as opposed to the 4 or 5 deep routes jeffery runs.

    i have only said this a gazillion times

    once chung got concussed they should have moved bademosi to ertz and told him to hammer him at the line. bademosi is clearly superior to richards.

    once
    chung returned, bademosi should have shifted over to ertz again to do his thing

    I did notice but I also watched them attack butlers side of the field a lot and feel like it might have been better if he was in there on someone. 14/17 receptions is not happening on butlers worst day. Gilmore played a fine game. The rest of the def. reminded me of keystone cops or that wierd chicken off reefer madness

    I’m not remembering butler from days of old just from the past ten games or so

    Spot on
    Butler's worst day ever with one leg is better than giving up 14 of 17 attempts

    And to think how up in arms some here were during the summer when our secondary wasn’t ranked in the top 3 by certain media outlets. :D

    The fact that they were “only” considered to be a top 5-10 secondary seemed like such an insult to certain fans.

    Two words:

    Jordan Richards :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Advanced Stats Report: Tom Brady’s mastery marred by defensive implosion

    "In just 11 snaps in coverage, Richards allowed a team-high 81 yards into his coverage, as the Patriots opted to have him cover Eagles tight end, Zach Ertz, while Patrick Chung mostly saw Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor." :eek: :eek: :eek:

    As a footnote, someone needs to inform Bill Belichick that Patrick Chung is not a slot cornerback. o_O
