"I appreciate the question, but it would be a much longer discussion", Belichick explained.
"There's a lot of things that go into that", he said.
"I ain't got nothing to say."
It's anyone's guess if Belichick was actually telling the truth regarding their decision to put Rowe over Butler, and if not, if he will ever share the real reason. Bill Belichick didn't divulge many details other than to say he did 'what was best for the team'.
After the game, Butler expressed his frustration, "they gave up on me", Butler said after the game. "In the end, we have to make the decisions that we feel are best for the football team".
North Korea Made $200M Off Banned Coal Exports
The North Korean mission to the United Nations did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the UN report. The experts said North Korea also exported $125 million of iron ore to China a year ago in violation of sanctions.
Bulls, Pelicans Finalizing Deal for Mirotic
The Bulls also waived forward Quincy Pondexter to create the needed roster space to acquire two extra players in the trade. That means that the upcoming trade deadline is going to either be full of surprises or really bland for the Jazz.
Rival sworn in as 'people's president' of Kenya as political stand-off continues
It followed an August election declared "null and void" by Kenya's Supreme Court over voting irregularities. Since independence in 1963, Kenya has been ruled only by leaders from the Kikuyu and Kalenjin groups.
Cartolano added: "I am not a reporter". Despite Sunday's loss to the Eagles, neither has anything left to prove after winning five Super Bowls together in eight appearances over the last 18 years.
His replacement was Eric Rowe, who gave up an integral 34-yard touchdown to star receiver Alshon Jeffrey.
The 49ers, of course, have a glaring need for a starting cornerback opposite promising rookie Ahkello Witherspoon and upwards of $100 million in cap space to play with. Patricia, who will be named the LIons head coach in the coming days, was asked repeatedly about Butler's benching and all he could do was repeat a talking point that made little sense.
The decision to not play Butler came down to matchups, according to defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. God bless u my friend, keep fighting, I saw you tear up pre game, first sign. And he delivered. Malcolm Butler's interception on the goal line sealed the victory for the Patriots as they won their fourth Super Bowl.
The decision even has some long-term consequences as this all but shuts the door on Butler - unrestricted free agent - returning to New England next year.
After the game, Belichick had said it wasn't a disciplinary decision.
Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding Butler's absence during the Super Bowl the Texans will need to tread lightly.
