    Tough loss today the blame has to be placed solely on Rivers/Norv.. despite the loss Donald Butler i thought played another great game. Very athletic, big, and hard hitting linebacker. They never talk about him on the broadcasts nor does anyone else online.. We have a good one in Butler i can see him being a leader on our defense for the next 10 yrs

    Because we lost, you're right about Butler though. The total meltdown in the second half unfortunately overshadowed Butler's play.

    Butler earned and deserves alot of credit for his outstanding play. No question he looks like a find. But outside of the great play I don't recall hering much from or about him afterwards. I don't necessarily blame him for that the defense was atrocious throughout the second. HAlf but still it speaks poorly of the team as a whole

    He just brings something we have been missing, hes an explosive tackler. When he fills the hole the delievers a blow he doesnt let the ball carrier come to him (stephen cooper)... not to mention he looks to be a lot better in coverage compared to spikes

    Spikes seemed to be able to start getting into the backfield, but too little, too late. Laboy whiffed on some of those tackles, so I am not sold on his abilities for this game. Butler's good play was overshadowed by his team mates shoddy play.

    Check the Balls/Birds thread. He's getting some much-deserved love there.

    I give him credit where credit is due. He is doing alot more for the team than most of us expected.
