Malcolm Butler Just Another 'Non-Essential' Patriots Employee

PITTSFIELD - The MBTA has replaced Pete Carroll this week as Greater Boston’s least-favorite doofus.

blah blah blah

“Non-essential” employees were told to stay home by entities in both the public and private sector. If you’re designated “non-essential” at your place of work, you might want to make sure your LinkedIn page is updated.

What makes someone “non-essential” when it’s snowing, but “essential” when it’s 65 and sunny remains a mystery to those of us outside HR.
We’re all pretty much “non-essential” in today’s workplace. Unlike Tom Brady’s balls, our opinion of ourselves at work is massively over-inflated. Employees, bosses, and even owners, are constantly being replaced by force, technology, or choice. Change does not guarantee progress. If it did, the world would be a better place with every new day.

Brady was considered “essential” until 2008. The Patriots went 11-5 that year with a QB who had not started a game since high school. That aberration of a season fueled baseless speculation and vapid conversation for six years about how the Patriots’ quarterback was just another cog in Belichick's Machine.

By October 2014, Brady was both “non-essential” and a detriment. No longer “elite,” he was considered by many to be part of the problem, as opposed to being the key to the solution.

When Brady restructured his contract after a string of solid victories, there was static and distortion propagated about the facts and motives of his new deal. Brady got a raise in his annual salary, but he gave up more than $20 million in guaranteed money to get it. Nonetheless, Brady was called out for being a phony.

Idiocy, envy and bile can be a combustible mix.

Brady felt the fury of all three in the lead-up to the Super Bowl.

All it takes is one stunning, miraculous, hard-fought, and fantastic 28-24 victory in the Super Bowl to create the illusion that the entire Patriots’ roster is “essential.”

Reality and history tell us that is not the case.

blah blah blah


Deion Branch [Super Bowl XXXIX MVP], to Wes Welker, to Julian "Six Years A Doghouse Resident" Edelman, to Danny Amendola.

Pick your slot guy.

The position itself is vital to the Brady-Belichick offense. The players come and go.

How about Malcolm Butler?

The rookie cornerback got Brady's Chevy truck on Tuesday. Perfect timing considering the chaos of Wednesday's commute into and around Greater Boston.

Even from 115 miles away, that mess looked ugly.

Does anyone think that Butler has a long-term, secure future in New England?

How many other Super Bowl stars and champions have gotten the boot from Foxborough, again by either by choice or force. Adam Vinatieri’s foot provided the winning margin in New England’s first three Super Bowl victories.

Won't be a 1st rounder or the deal is off. The Patriots are waiting for Butler to sign and the Saints are also prior to negotiating compensation. We'll get him and it'll probably be our 2nd or 3rd next year or the 3rd they gave us this year.

Yup. Sounds about right.

My guess is they get their 32nd back for Butler. He's worth the 32nd pick.

Why do I get a Larry Brown feeling about Butler?

Then why didn't the saints agree to that in the first place. Butler is not worth Cooks straight up. Butler is overrated.
