Yesterday, Emmanuel Sanders tweeted out that Malcolm Butler didn’t “shut me down, my 2 year old son could play cover 2”. Which a statement like that is sort of comical in itself. Sanders basically admitted that a 2 year old could cover him in cover 2. Ummm, thanks for the tip?
Today, he doubled down on his comments when speaking with NFL Network:My question is, who the heck cares what defense they played. Plain and simple, you got shut down and for some weird, bizarre reason, you are afraid to admit that. That’s like jacking a home run off a pitcher and the pitcher saying “well yeah, I threw you a pitch you could hit”, or a hockey player scoring a goal and the goalie saying “well yeah, I didn’t save it”, or a guy draining a three pointer and the defender saying “well yeah, I left you room to shoot”. How stupid is Emmanuel? Everyone play cover 2 against the Broncos here on out! It’ll ruin their playoff hopes! Actually, I think they are already ruined. Enjoy your off season.
