After Tom Brady went out and played Brady-esque, the Patriots defense stole the show again on Thursday night in their win over Philadelphia.

    That’s why I have an anonymous Twitter account. After every tweet my followers probably ask : “why did he tweet that?”

    I know I do!

    I agree, but I don't really see this as falling into that category. None of us know exactly where it was coming from.
    I do agree that it COULD be interpreted as a tweak to the coaches and the fact the tweet could be interpreted that way is something I also don't like. If he was tweaking himself he could've made it clearer. So I agree with you about players commenting on game strategy-thats not what I had a problem with- it's the knee-jerk assumption by some that it was negative when they don't know what it was.

    Me. Never tweeted in my life and 100% not interested. That goes for all of so-called social media. Could care less about it. Too busy living real life.

    Butler has lost a lot of money thus far. Let's see if he can have himself a good game against the squealers.

    Glad you're not BB.
    Malcolm Butler has played the NFL's #1 wr better than any cb in the league- Antonio Brown has said that himself. The NFL is about matchups- MB matches up better with AB than any other Pat's cb, or for that matter, any other cb in the NFL. Why in the world would you change that?

    All I care about. But I'd still put Gilmore on Brown.

    Butler just said it was an accident. No reason not to take him at his word.
    Unless you're an expert mind-reader with supernatural powers? Are you?

    As long as he helps the team win. He’s been a tremendous find and even if (when) he leaves after the season - I’ll be grateful for his contributions to SB trophies.

    Kinda surprised he is still on the team. Thought he was gone during NO Saints courtship.

    I love all the people defending Butler here..

    He did it. He’s lying when he says he didn’t do it, and all of you would say the same if this was a non patriot.

    It’s not a big deal, but it’s not how the franchise likes things done, it’s a strike against him, and he’s not gonna be back next year.

    Hey you've got a big lead over him but on a posts per day basis he's not too far behind you!

    Are you an analyst?!! Very good assessment!

    It’s about the rate, not the total
