Pederson ruthlessly punishes Belichick's Butler gamble

Malcolm Butler: Patriots 'gave up on me' in Super Bowl

Faced with a fourth down on their own 45-yard line and needing a yard to move the sticks, Pederson put the ball in Foles' hands and he again delivered with a stunning show of poise to find Zach Ertz and keep the drive alive.

"I don't know what it was", he added.

However, at U.S. Bank Stadium, Belichick met a commander in Eagles coach Doug Pederson who learned from the Jaguars' error in judgement and flipped the script as the Patriots were punished for a coaching mistake and denied a sixth Lombardi Trophy in a 41-33 defeat that secured a first Super Bowl title for Philadelphia.

"He practiced it the most", Belichick said. Before the Super Bowl, Browner posted that he loved Belichick.

"We were just trying to run packages that we had on defense and those guys that were out there were out there for all the situations we needed them for", Patricia said. The second of those plays came on third-and-12.

Say this for Butler: Few players can match his fire. Basically everyone in their secondary got worked.




They mystery surrounding his benching may never be solved, but Brandon Browner, a former New England Patriots cornerback who won a Super Bowl with the team, the benching had something to do with marijuana. It might have been the worst under Belichick. From the big-picture perspective, one of the things that covering Belichick's teams has opened my eyes to over the years is viewing the game through the three-phase prism, with special teams a big part of it. "It's a process and we didn't get the conclusion to the process that we wanted". You divide the locker room. Even normally media-friendly individuals such as safety Devin McCourty and defensive end Dietrich Wise excused themselves without comment, and defensive back Johnson Bademosi was a little more emphatic, telling reporters that he had nothing to say and that he owed them nothing.

"I don't know but I could have changed that game though".

Butler didn't stick around long enough for the hugs. On Wednesday, he reflected on his wild career in New England. The jewelry was a gift from a family member. "Great organization. They gave me the opportunity". "I'm a fighter. I fight through life".

He was honest about his 2017 season - "might've came up short" - and about his eternal Super Bowl glory. Could Belichick have viewed that as a sign Butler was thinking about himself ahead of the team?

Last year, Belichick only signed Butler (who was almost traded to the New Orleans Saints), to a $3.91 million first-round tender. I'm sure that he felt like he could've helped.

"I made the decisions that give us the best chance to win", Belichick said at halftime.
