Pats, B's, Sox
The only "straw" I'm grasping on to is the FACT that I'm not clairvoyant and that I know you aren't either. You don't have the first clue what would have happened or how the game would have changed if Butler played. NEITHER do I. I'm happy accepting that. You clearly aren't. You'd rather have some fantasy that Butler being on the field would have made it so Rowe wouldn't miss tackles.. So Chung wouldn't miss tackles.. That the Patriots would have been perfect..You're right, I should have been explicit in that there was an extremely small chance that the Eagles put up 41 with Butler in the game. That said, if you believe that they would have... But hey, if that's the straw you wish to grasp onto, go nuts. Wouldn't be the fist time.
Unlike you, I'm a realist. I'm disappointed in the loss. I'm disappointed that Butler didn't play more than on Special Teams. But there is no way to judge BB's decision without more information, so I will withhold judgement.
