Must say though, Butler is an emotional guy and he was nothing but happy as hell when we talked with him throughout the week. Against the Eagles, the Patriots defense gave up yards of total offense — its worst outing since the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Philadelphia also converted on 10 of 16 third downs, including a pair of controversial touchdowns from Corey Clement and Zach Ertz. Quarterback Nick Foles threw for passing yards, with a 65 percent completion rate.

Coach makes all the personnel decisions and I just play football. But Belichick did not give much of an explanation when pressed about his decision — insisting the move was not disciplinary and strictly football.

In the end, we have to make the decisions that are best for our football team. Butler exited the locker room before speaking to reporters, but a few caught up with the dejected cornerback as he exited U.

Bank Stadium. It is what it is. I have nothing but great things to say about the organization. They gave me an opportunity. Amendola, Brady, and Gronkowski were not in attendance.

The second-team All-Pro selection was asked about that possibility before the Super Bowl. Although he admitted the idea had crossed his mind, Butler said he planned on putting thoughts of his upcoming contract aside in favor of the big game.

I just want to win this championship. Just got to win, man. That was a factor. That dipped to 62 percent of the snaps against Jacksonville. All the while, Butler stood on the sideline, with his helmet on, looking ready to play.

He never got a shot. We might never get the full, honest answer from Belichick, but it turns out that the AFC Championship Game tape against Jacksonville does provide some reason why the Patriots might have lost trust in having Butler on the field.

He communicated somewhat frantically with Patrick Chung prior to the snap, indicating some level of miscommunication. Tight end Ben Koyack motioned toward the line, and Butler followed him, indicating he seemed to believe he was in man coverage on the tight end.

At the snap, Koyack ran directly behind the line of scrimmage to the opposite side of the field, and Butler followed him, thus leaving an entire third of the field vacated.

Malcolm Butler chases Ben Koyack. Screen shot from NFL. You can watch it here. They scored a touchdown on the very next play. Of course, to blame Butler for this play, we have to assume the Patriots were in Cover 3.

Based on Stephon Gilmore staying on his side of the field and allowing Keelan Cole to break inside, and based on Devin McCourty covering the deep middle of the field, that seems to be a fair assumption.

There is a case to be made that perhaps James Harrison should have switched from covering the tight end to the running back — like this video does at the second mark.

On a screen pass to Grant, Butler got completely eliminated from the play by Marqise Lee. Butler actually turned his back to the play and ran up the field to try to avoid getting blocked, but he ended up getting put on his rear end.

Butler pleaded with the officials for a holding flag, but he did not get it. That play went for 15 yards.

Late in the second quarter, Blake Bortles did connect with Cole for a gain of 26 yards up the right sideline, with Butler in man coverage.

On the drive after that, Butler chased Lee out of a trips formation on a shallow crossing route and trailed by two steps the entire time.

Bortles hit Lee in stride, and the play went for 18 yards. It was a well-designed play for the Jaguars. But there were a number of snaps where Butler played very well.

He jarred a ball free from Lee to force an early third-down incompletion, manned his zone well on a coverage sack in the second quarter, he slipped off the block of a wide receiver to step into the backfield and tackle Fournette at the line of scrimmage early in the third quarter, and he covered Lee in man coverage step-for-step on a deep post on a third-down play that helped lead to an incompletion elsewhere on the field.

Pats captains were aware that Butler was being sat. But exactly when they were informed I can't tell you. Must say though, Butler is an emotional guy and he was nothing but happy as hell when we talked with him throughout the week.

He also ran a few blitzes, one of which contributed to a third-down incompletion. Like many games from Butler in , there were ups and there were downs. But that apparent blown assignment early on stood out the most.

Now, all of this being said, these reasons only cover Belichick and the Patriots to a certain point. Maybe they liked other matchups. But coaching is also about making adjustments.

Jeffery was quiet for the rest of the night. The game plan had failed, and it was time for a change. We might not ever know. But as far as the initial plan to not include Butler in the game?

I guess I wasn't playing good or they didn't feel comfortable. Bottom line the kid suited up and would have given us a better chance to win if he started so at the end of the day I blame Belichek. Tight end Ben Koyack motioned toward the line, and Butler followed him, indicating he seemed to believe he was in man coverage on the tight end. During the game, cameras caught Butler appearing to cry while standing on the sideline. If this ends up being true or close to it,the blame sits squarely on Butler who has been here for four years and knows what he shouldn't be doing,especially days before the SB. I have always been critical of some of the stuff Belichek has done regardless of how successful he has been. Giving up 3pts instead of 7 on any one of the three TD drives in the 2nd half might have made a big difference in the Final score.

But link far as the buler plan to not include Butler in the game? Butled went from getting zero snaps in the AFC title game to getting 11 why butler didn t play in the Why butler didn t play Bowl; he, too, could not perform. I think its such a big story because no one is coming out from either side to verify or deny the rumors for why he didn't play. Perhaps Belichick figured he could have his cake severely discipline Butler and eat it to still win the game. It was a well-designed play for the Jaguars. There has to be more to this.
