"You're gonna have to serve somebody..."
The former Patriots cornerback wasn’t able to live out his high-paying contract in Tennessee.
Sign the beast?
Was he used any differently in Tennessee or just a pure dropoff in play?
The benching of Malcom Butler cost Brady a SB, and the team the GOAT.
If Brady goes into 2019 as a 7-time champ, and is the first to ever 3peat...this timeline doesn't exist.
Maybe Butler gets roasted by Jeffrey early as well, we'll never know. However, he was a very good tackler which Johnson Badmostly and Jordan Richards were not. I'd rather roll with my starters than the worst graded CB in the NFL that year in Rowe. In fact, Eagles made it known they were going to target Rowe because of this and they were familiar with him (and they weren't lying). The fact that Bill had the balls to put him on the Eagles best WR was baffling.The benching of Butler was stupid, but even if he played there was no guarantee the Pats would have won. Butler wasn't playing well that season and the Pats and the Pats gave up 10 points in the last 2:30 minutes of the game and only had to give up a field goal to lose the game. And the Pats gave up 164 yards and 6.1 YPC on the ground.
Butler playing would have given the Pats a better chance of winning, but there were a lot of problems on defense other than the CB play in that game.
