There was a little bit of a stir last week when ESPN reported referees officiated two key Eagles touchdown receptions in the 2018 Super Bowl with the NFL’s new catch rule that was just passed earlier this week. NFL head of officiating Al Riveron denied that report.
During an episode of “SI: Under the Cover” that chronicled Butler’s free agency, the now-former Patriots cornerback said he would have made a difference in New England’s 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. “I never missed a game,” Butler said. “Never missed practice or anything like that. Would we have won if I played? Probably. Maybe. I’m not sure. But I would say we were short about one or two plays, and I saw a couple plays out there I could have made.”
It’s safe to say Eagles Super Bowl wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith didn’t exactly agree with Butler.
The reality is the Eagles are Super Bowl champions forever and no one can ever take that away.
