Donald Butler….. One of my followers on Twitter mentioned that he wished that the Chargers had Patrick Willis on defense. I couldn’t agree more.
That being said, Butler is a serious beast.
After posting a whopping 35 bench presses at 225 while at the combine, Butler has shown far more than strength while doing his best to overcome the incumbent leader of the linebacking corp, Takeo Spikes.
Butler was credited with 6 total tackles; at this point. Not to mention he had a half a sack and one interception. Add those stats to his constant disruption in the backfield and his obvious prescence.
It’s become a little bit crazy how often you see number 56 make an impact without putting putting a number down in the stat column.
I see you Butler.
After being criticized heavily for being injured in his first year while being a third round draft pick, Butler has made an impact on each and every game that he has played since missing his rookie year.
Coming off an achilles tear his rookie season, Butler is starting to show that his impact is becoming more a play by play situation as opposed to a game by game occurrence.
Butler has been a standout on defense in each of our games thus far in the 2012 season.
The sky is the limit. He is only going to get better.
I would be extremely terrified if I were in the AFC West and had to face him twice a year.
It’s pretty funny to think that every time a play is made, on defense, that it is likely that the Butler did it.
Well he at least had a hand in making said play possible.
Thanks a lot for reading.
