24-year old Malcolm Butler made a brilliant play to seal a victory for the Patriots in Super Bowl 49* on Sunday. Instead of simply celebrating this young man’s exceptional effort and the Patriots remarkable achievement, armchair offensive coordinators across the country took Twitter, Facebook and the water cooler to crucify Pete Carroll and Darrell Bevell for what they view as insane football sacrilege.
