Patriots’ Michael Floyd Discusses Mistakes, Super Bowl & The Patriots

It was a roller coaster year for New England Patriots’ wide receiver Michael Floyd, to say the least. After the Patriots came back to beat the Atlantic Falcons in an amazing and historic Super Bowl LI, Floyd took to Twitter to celebrate the win and share his happiness.

A few days later Floyd tweeted: “Damn I just realized ppl are really mad that I got a ring. I thought everyone would be happy for me. Oh well. I’m a champion!!” indicating that there was some backlash to his celebratory tweets.

But, that is social media and Floyd’s season was one that could not be denied by the naysayers on Twitter.

Floyd began the 2016 season as a member of the Arizona Cardinals and many expected Floyd to have a huge year considering he was in a contract year. Many people also believed the Arizona Cardinals were primed for a Super Bowl run.

Both expectations fell flat.

In December of 2016 Floyd was arrested on DUI charges and immediately released by the Cardinals. New England moved in shortly after and picked him up.

Floyd was a guest on ESPN Radio’s “Weekend Observations” with Mike Golic Jr. and Jon Weiner over the past weekend and spoke about his season including his DUI.

“It hurt actually,” Floyd said on ESPN Radio’s “Weekend Observations” with Mike Golic Jr. and Jon Weiner. “It sucked, but I knew something was going to happen, but I did not actually think I was going to get released at all. When I did, obviously because of the decision that I made, they made that decision. I went home from work and I felt bad about everything. I felt bad from the beginning, knowing I was in trouble, and I knew there was going to be some punishment. I just felt terrible.”

In response to the backlash on Twitter Floyd had the following to say:

“Negative random people said the most crazy things,” Floyd said..

“I mean, it was probably mostly Arizona people, but they just think that I’m not sorry for what I did, or I disrespected Arizona. What I say is, ‘I made a mistake. I’m sorry for what I did. And I’m moving forward.’ I think some people didn’t want me to be successful. I think there’s a lot of people out there that don’t want people to succeed. You have to make the best of it, and for me, I ended up on a team that loved me and I was actually successful.”

And while Floyd’s tenure with Arizona ended badly he stated that “I would love to be where I was”, hinting that he would welcome a return to the Cardinals.

Floyd will hit free agency this year and likely end up on his 3rd team in less than a year.

Arizona Cardinals 2018 Season Preview

Arizona Cardinals

Last year in the desert, the Arizona Cardinals were one of three teams fighting for a playoff spot in the wild, wild NFC West. Thinking that with head coach Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer at quarterback the franchise felt like they could go far in 2017.

They finished the 2017 campaign with a record of 8-8 which was third in the NFC West. When the 2018 offseason finally began, veteran quarterback Carson Palmer decided to hang his cleats up after playing 14 seasons with three different teams.

Now, entering the 2018 NFL season the Arizona Cardinals are without Arians and Palmer. Steve Wilks is the Cardinals next head coach. As an NFL head coach, he has no experience but in college, he has a record of 5-6.

As for quarterbacks, they have four players on the quarterback depth chart and of the four quarterbacks, Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon are the two veteran quarterback. The Arizona Cardinals are looking for Sam Bradford to lead the Cardinals to the playoffs and hopefully the Super Bowl

The Arizona Cardinals begin the 2018 season at home against the Washington Redskins on September 9. As for that game, Here is how I think the Cardinals will do as I predict the 2018 schedule.

Week Opponent Result Record
1 Vs. Redskins W 1-0
2 At Rams L 1-1 (0-1)
3 Vs. Bears L 1-2
4 Vs. Seahawks L 1-3 (0-2)
5 At 49ers W 2-3 (1-2)
6 At Vikings L 2-4
7 (TNF) Vs. Broncos L 2-5
8 Vs. 49ers W 3-5 (2-2)
9 Bye Week    
10 At Chiefs W 4-5
11 Vs. Raiders W 5-5
12 At Chargers W 6-5
13 At Packers L 6-6
14 Vs. Lions W 7-6
15 At Falcons W 8-6
16 Vs. Rams W 9-6 (3-2)
17 At Seahawks L 9-7 (3-3)

It is unclear if the Cardinals will make the playoffs, we will have to see how the other three teams will do.

According to multiple sources, Cowboys Wide Receiver Brice Butler will not be with the team in 2018. Why may you ask? Because he was dealt with Arizona Cardinals due to Free Agency.

During the offseason, Butler went on shows like “Undisputed” on FS1 and then on NFL Networks’s “Total Access,” to tell teams (including the Dallas Cowboys) that he is a top wide receiver and if Dallas or whoever wants to pay him like one, then he would certainly play with that team. Well, apparently the Arizona Cardinals did.

At the age of 23, Butler went to the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted college free agent. During his years in Oakland, Butler was targeted 50 times and only completed 30 of the passes. Plus he only scored two touchdowns. Brice also played in 25 games and only started in 2 of them. Then in

Then in 2015, during his first season of free agency, Butler moved from the black and silver to the blue and silver as he signed a three-year deal with The Dallas Cowboys. During those three years, he had 43 receptions and 8 touchdowns. Butler also started more games than he did in Oakland, California. Now, in 2018, Butler is looking to continue to improve and look to take the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl.

No word on how much the signing is but according to James Jones of NFL Network, the new contract with the Cardinals is a 2-year deal.
