Super Bowl 52 postgame quotes: Bill Belichick

Since Bill Belichick became coach of the New England Patriots in 2000, he has seen multiple assistants leave for other jobs. "I feel for [Butler]".

"There's a lot of things that go into that", he said. People really want to know the "why" behind that decision, but per usual, Belichick isn't saying much. The Lions already have a nice core with Darius Slay and Glover Quin at free-safety, and adding Butler to play opposite corner of Slay could make the Lions one of the best teams in the NFC.

Nonetheless, Butler did not play one defensive snap, and was clearly angry after the game.

Butler told ESPN's Mike Reiss that the Patriots "gave up on me" and that "I could have changed that game".

"I respect Malcolm's competitiveness", Belichick said. We just felt good about some of those situations that we had out there and some of the matchups that we had that they possessed based on the skill sets that they have.

After the game, Belichick said the decision to bench Butler was strictly about football.

Butler played just one snap in Super Bowl LII on the punt return team. I didn't know whether to cheer for they ass. As great as Brady played, the Philadelphia Eagles had a field day with the Pats' secondary, en route to a 41-33 Super Bowl win for Philly. Rowe, who started in place of Butler, told reporters the switch was not made until just prior to kickoff.

This was the head coach's final media obligation following the Super Bowl, so we may not hear from him again until the NFL Draft gets closer. Surely it is wiser than those now being spoken by the all the experts who aren't anywhere near the team and have nothing close to Belichick's credentials. The idea that it's better to get rid of a player a year too early rather than a year too late.

The 2011 Pro Bowl selection was on the field with the Patriots when Butler picked off Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to win Super Bowl XLIX.

Belichick was pressed for more specifics several times, but declined to provide new insight into the reasoning behind his decision.

The story surrounding the 49ers' need for a cornerback took an interesting turn in Sunday night's Super Bowl.

If that is true, we have come up with a theory for the delay: The Hoodie had been busy sabotaging his own game plan.

Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding Butler's absence during the Super Bowl the Texans will need to tread lightly.
