Patriots coaches sidestep any praise for CB Butler

(TSX / STATS) -- New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had no issue singing the praises of several of his defensive stars, save for one.

Belichick credited either the play or technique of cornerbacks Eric Rowe and Jonathan Jones, defensive lineman Lawrence Guy and linebacker Elandon Roberts on Tuesday. As for the performance thus far this season of Super Bowl XLIX hero Malcolm Butler, Belichick sang a different tune.

"Look, we're into a new season, so I don't think anybody's performance this season is really where it needs to be or where it will be," Belichick said when asked if Butler is performing as consistently this season as he has shown him in the past.
