I keep reading this and went back to watch the game. They both were targeted about the same amount of time and gave up about the same number of receptions. Vaughn actually defended more passes ( 4-1), though Butler got the int. Most of the receptions were given up when they went prevent and were giving the receivers 10 yards of cushion. When the game was in doubt and they were playing up on the receiver, Vaughn allowed only 2 receptions. I don't know why folks are so down on him.


I agree. I don't think Vaughn is that bad.

Vaughn is always in the right place at the right time, he just never turns around to see the ball coming. It does annoy me when he celebrates waving his arms incomplete when he had nothing to do with the poor pass.

Lets just see what the vibe on Butler and the rest of the Colts will be after NE.......

If he only gets to start 1 more game this season, I'm glad it will possibly be against his former team. Not only his former team, but a team he just left as recent as a couple months ago. He and Sergio Brown should have a pretty decent idea of what the Pats want to do offensively. Maybe that will help us some.

@TribStarTJames: Arians: butler has earned another start. When you get two picks, you start.

Butler! Dude had a great game last night, (defensive) player of the game for sure. I was at the game last night and afterwards he(Butler), Castonzo, and Bethea autographed my hat before getting on the bus! Great to see the "next man up" stepping up. Definitely a Darius Butler fan now.

Based on Arians comments in todays post game interview, I'd say Butler is going to remain a starter ahead of Powers. I wouldn't be surprised that all along that was their intention for bringing him here.

Yes.

Reporter: What does this mean for Butler?

Arians: It means he gets to be the starter. Wally Pipp - you forget about whoever's hurt.

They dealt with Peyton Manning, who is considered an MVP candidate by many. How much more real can a QB get?

manning didn't play good that game and his team screwed him over with all those fumbles

In rewatching the game, I think I should give Butler a little more credit for the first interception. His anticipation and closing speed were elite. It was dangerous; the Jags had already tried a hitch-and-go on Vaughn earlier in the game, and they got him with one on the next drive that went to Cecil Shorts for a big gain (Zbikowski made it worse by missing the tackle). So Butler reading that, breaking on it, and completing the interception was a high-end play.

My original thought was that Gabbert telegraphed the pass, and he did. Not only did he make it clear that he was going to throw, his wind up and delivery were obnoxiously delayed. So Butler did get some help. But it was still a nice play, no doubt about it.

Fantastic game from him!!

2 picks, and shut down the guy he went against (he went against Blackmon for the most part, but went against Shorts too).

This kid is a keeper. Definitely better than Vaughn, who had another bad performance.

give the 2nd INT to Freeney. Ball tip drill. Butler is NOT consistent but can get there, still young. Let's see what he does vs. the Patriots. Brady will slice and dice ANYONE he sees with a weakness. Like Cattle coming to slaughter. If you want to stand out in this league, do something against New England, or better yet, don't let him (Brady) do something. How will we fare against premium talent (NE), time will tell. But go Butler (I like the sound of that from here in Indy :) )

it wasnt a terrible throw on the pick 6 by Butler in my opinion, Gabbert should have saw Butler but it still was a great read . Butler made a great play on the ball that Powers likely does not make in my opinion

Gav I agree great play by butler but I've seen a lot of pats games he is easy to catch with the double move which is why he out if pats an Carolina he gonna give up a td against the oats on a double move if he start

I was saying I have seen a lot of patriots games and Darius butler made a great play but he will give up a td on a double move which is why he got cut in first place

Well, they held Manning to 21, while their offense got 31. That's good enough for a W, and it's good enough for me.

I think he has done well, but it has a lot to do with the team we are playing.


Precisely. The jags were using a lot of timing patterns, and our corners picked up on it.

If they wanna prove they are good, next week is the time to do it.

    I don't know how many roundabouts there are in Carmel, but I think I went through at least 20 of them today . . . which brought back memories of how hard it was for me to enter jump roping without tripping or being whacked in the head.
