New Titans CB Malcolm Butler is Over the Questions About Not Playing in the Super Bowl in February

Malcolm Butler is getting used to hot chicken, but the process has been gradual.

“Might eat a little hotter next time,” the Titans cornerback said, “but I’m going to take my time.”

Butler has embraced his move to Nashville, and, in a larger sense, a change of scenery. It helps with turning the page, though Butler will tell you he did that months ago, Erick Bacharach of the Tennessean reports.

“I’ve been turned the page,” he said. “Probably a week or two after the situation.”

Butler, a former New England Patriot and offseason acquisition by the Titans, still can’t escape the questions, though.

Why were you benched for last season’s Super Bowl? Why did Patriots coach Bill Belichick not play you for the biggest game of the year after having you start 15 games in the regular season and two in the playoffs?

“I most definitely get tired of (the questions),” Butler said. “Every reporter shooting their shot when they know they’re going to get the same answer. But, you know, everybody wants to know, and what I tell everybody is just ‘coach’s decision.’ And I’ve moved on. I’m a Tennessee Titan and I’m glad to be one.”

“Malcolm’s got a lot to prove,” Titans secondary coach Kerry Coombs said. “Malcolm’s a competitive guy. He competes at everything he does. He wants to win at everything he does, he wants to win at every rep and he wants to let you know when he beats you. And I love that about Malcolm.”

Like all those Super Bowl questions, Butler uses a repeated answer to inquiries about his intensity in practice.

“I’m real motivated.”

  1. Oilers Forever says:

    He’ll never have to worry about playing in the Super Bowl or not now that he’s playing for the Titans!

  2. Bill Belichick says:

    That’s why I didn’t play him. I knew he planned to sign with the Titans after the season and I wanted him to get used to never, ever having to worry about playing in the Super Bowl. I’m a much nicer guy than everyone wants to give me credit for.

    And now that he is with the Titans, he gets to spend January with his family every year. Enjoy ringing in the New Year with your wifey, Malcolm!

  3. I’m just glad we now have a great corner back!
