Butler Chicago Breakdown

Recommended Posts



I think the problem with Butler is that other non high draft pick guys are out playing him. 

The narrative that Butler can be "useful" despite his high draft pick status is a bit asinine. 

 

Especially given that he has had some really good talent around him. Star wasn't a stat sheet guy but he was always there, why? Because of the double teams he demanded and the pressure he applied which in turn made other players better and flourish. I don't see that with Butler. I've never seen him command anything. 

Also at the time of I remember correctly. Gman made the pick basses on the fact that KK was still not signed. Maybe a contingency plan?

Good stuff but Vincent looks like a NYU film school dropout who leaves comments on pornhub criticizing the lighting of a porn set.

He's always had the tools, that's why he was drafted. The problem is he usually hasn't had the heart or desire to become one of the best at his position. You can't force someone to buy in.

He’s clearly a massive bust but it never made sense at all to even consider cutting him. He’s okay depth and you won’t find anything better than him for less than what we’re paying him. We’d save about $1M by cutting him with $1M dead cap hit. Just doesn’t make sense. And his roster spot in a depth was role was pretty much secured in early August when he got a $0.5M roster bonus. Right call not to pick up his 5th year option but also right call to keep him around this year and not rule out past this year too depending on price and if he progresses at all or fits better in a 3-4.

Ppl want things to be oversimplified.

Butler was drafted as insurance should KK not stay with the team. Due to his size and strength, the team has more often than not asked him to play the NT role.

I think that the 3-4 DE and 4-3 UT are the best fits for him, but if given the choice between him and Obada... idk... tough call

Great write-up! I appreciate the read.

Kyle love was and undrafted FA and he has outperformed Butler every year they have both been here.

Butler either doesn't have the skill to take it to the next level in the NFL or he is lazy. Either way he's a huge bust.

I don’t really see it happening but hoping he comes out playing hard early in the year.  If he doesn’t see his career is at a crossroad he isn’t paying attention.

     I don’t think Butler’s agent could spin his efforts (or lack there of), any better than the author. 

  My first question would be how is he holding his spot in double teams when his main move is to turn his back and get driven to the other side of the line? It happens with single blocks as well. He was driven to the opposite A gap by a backup RT on a play he was given credit for causing the RB to bounce outside. He was long gone by then and didn’t force anything. 

  No burst ,ever. Questionable effort at best. Has no clue how to use his hands and no desire to learn. Reaching for plays where most on here could have done the same thing  as an accomplishment. That should tell you something. 

  Between this and wanting to keep Matt Kalil, I’m not buying what is trying to be sold here.

    • Lol. No merit? You have a stat that in two years has Gano’s best year ever and conveniently ignores the year that made us draft a kicker. A stat that ignores the fact that Gano missed 4 games and is hurt yet again, 3rd time in 4 seasons. It ignores the fact that Gano’s best year ever was because Rivera only let him attempt 1 50 yard FG. Rivera has taken the ball out of his hands and you want to use a stat purely based on his attempts. How about all the punts when we were in FG range? Where’s that in the capture rate? If you also can’t get that Gano cost us $3.5m each year of Butker’s contract then there’s no point. Gano’s done nothing the past three years to merit the amount of faith people put in him around here. Keeping Butker would have been a better decision for our team. Whether you consider it to have merit or not makes not difference to those of us not blind to reality. Andy Reid has faith in his kicker, our coach does not in his.
    • his run style, foot quickness, and speed, all look like cmc. probably needs work in route running but this dude is by no means a cap clone
    • he kind of just did. buffalo's D ain't no joke. and he did it with a crappy OL as well. the guy is going to be great having on the field with and spelling CMC. he's got a lethal punch, he's fast, it looks like he's got good vision, and he's got much better hands than advertised and has potential as a decent route runner.  i'm on board having this guy on the team. gives us another good weapon on offense.
