Malcolm Butler Goes from Undrafted and Unheralded to Unbelievable Experience


Trivia: What is the brand name used for Marshawn Lynch Apparel? (Answer below)

Some fans have had enough already with Deflategate! With the NFL still investigating the case, only time will tell whether the Patriots or anyone else gets fined. This year the big game seemed to have lived-up to the hype. Brady was MVP. But the game winner was Malcolm Butler, an undrafted unheralded rookie.

With the game clock about to run-out Butler snagged an interception. Some have called it the worst play-call ever because the Seahawks could have run instead of passing the ball. Many thought Marshawn Lynch should have gotten the call. Well, the NFL gods had other ideas. It started a few plays earlier.

The Seahawks were on the move and Jermaine Kearse made a spectacular catch. Butler almost had a shot at intercepting the ball then. The catch made by Kearse had to be reviewed by officials and replayed a few times to show that the ball never hit the ground. It looked like the Seahawks had it in the bag.

During the post-game interview Butler said “I just had a vision I was going to make a big play and it came true.” Sometimes that’s what it takes to go from unheralded to unbelievable. Butler also explained how they practiced goal-line defense all week leading-up to the big game. So, vision executed with precision.

The MVP normally gets a grand prize. This year it’s a new Chevy truck. There’s also the tradition of having the MVP in a commercial about going to Disney World. Well, Brady announced he’s going to give the truck to Butler. And Butler can be seen with Julian Edelman saying they’re going to Disney World.
