Butler not playing on the game's biggest stage likely means he's done in New England.

Now one day after the Patriots' Super Bowl loss, we are not much closer to learning the details behind Belichick's odd coaching decision. That was a power trip.

He was replaced on Sunday by Eric Rowe, and Butler watched on feeling helpless as the Eagles ran up 538 yards. Again, he didn't say much.

The Hoodie typically outwits, out-coaches and outlasts opponents with frightening precision, but his curious choice to sit the guy who had played more defensive snaps than anyone on his roster this season (97.8%, in case you were wondering) loomed large in New England's 41-33 loss to the Eagles Sunday night.

Belichick also heard criticism from former Patriots cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Ty Law, who disagreed with Belichick's decision to bench their starting cornerback.

"That dude done started every game for that team, you feel me, since he picked the [expletive] ball off", Browner said. "I am sure other players felt the same way, but in the end, we have to make the decisions that we feel are best for the football team and that is what we did... that is what I did. I don't know. That's how the game goes sometimes".




Butler said after the game that the Patriots "gave up" on him and that he "could have changed that game". "But u don't play your best cornerback". Butler made play after play in that game before making the most important play to seal a championship. You divide the locker room when you do that. The Patriots and Eagles had two of the best defenses in the league throughout the regular season and postseason.

Another is defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who was hired as the head coach of the Detroit Lions on Monday. "I guess I wasn't playing good".

"No, that wasn't the plan", Rowe said. And after the game, he told ESPN, that he "could have changed that game".

"I appreciate the question, but it would be a much longer discussion", Belichick told reporters. Asked by Reiss what would come next for him, Butler replied, "I ain't Miss Cleo, so I can't tell the future".

Butler saw some playing time on special teams, but that was the extent of his playing time as Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe and Johnson Bademosi saw almost all the playing time at corner for the Patriots.
