yeah..there were a few key third down stops that were close to the line of gain that if they'd had another tackler there..or a better one..it would've been a different story.Except the Eagles were also running the ball all over the place, and breaking tackles in the secondary without a problem. Coverage isn't Butler's only responsibility, it's tackling, and he tackles better than anyone in that secondary other than maybe McCourty. And the tackling, IMO, was as big a problem tonight as any that the defense had.
I also can't help feeling..if they had sent Butler out there in the second half..that he would've had a huge chip on his shoulder to try and make a play..that could've worked to our advantage or disadvantage.
