New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was asked nine times after Sunday's Super Bowl about starting DB Malcolm Butler surprisingly being benched for the big game. He had nine answers that had zero information...



Pro Football Focus heard these rumblings, take these with a grain of salt...

This Cartolano dude heard from a friend that Malcolm Butler missed curfew and was caught with weed. First of all who caught him? And isn't it still against the law to have weed in your possession? And if this was true I guarantee the way the vultures in the media are more than one guy would've had this story it would've been everywhere.

Reportedly Butler had weed on him and broke some other rules. I guess Butler, ESPN, and the media doesn't care about the rules of a successful franchise in the NFL. I guess he can now go play for the Browns and him and Gordon can go smoke weed together!

Someone should ask why Malcolm Butler didnt play.

Bill and Patricia are likely doing Butler a favor by dodging the questions as to why he was benched.

Is there a more annoying, dense fricking profession than media reporters?

It would have been different if it were an illegal firearm. That's no big deal compared to weed and curfew. Saban has the highest level of integrity

His name is Malcolm Butler but he's so Eugene Robinson. How in the hell do you not put the brakes on partying until after you win? You can party all you want after you win. fricking stupid.

Saban definitely didn't learn his disciplinarian skills from Bill Belichick

If true, this is where Bill B is a dumb frick...d ont risk the SB to prove a point! Play the mf'er and cut him later. Now you hurt the entire team because of a curfew for a grown man? D ont know if it changes game, but his name fed would have been called many times during the game

I hate the Patriots, but this is completely wrong. Right is right, and the fact that it was the Super Bowl doesn’t change doing the right thing. The coaches aren’t to blame, Malcolm is to blame 100% if the reports we are told are true.

That’s actually pretty damn impressive for Patricia to answer every single one, not really get (or show) frustrated, and continue with the “packages and situations” theme.

"...got caught with weed when he came back late to hotel," Story checks out if Malcolm is 16.
