Over at NBC, I published three more things to watch in tonight’s Cowboys-Chargers preseason game. One of them is Victor Butler:

3. Victor Butler

I voted Butler as the Cowboys’ most underrated player. . .two years in a row. The fourth-year outside linebacker has been nothing but productive when he has received snaps, producing a pressure rate of 7.9 percent—superior to that of Anthony Spencer.

Many think Butler only ever rushes the passer, but that’s not true. In the past two seasons, Butler has rushed the quarterback on 51.9 percent of his snaps—lower than DeMarcus Ware’s 53.2 percent rate.

I realize there are things we don’t see in practice, but I cannot figure out for the life of me how Butler doesn’t receive more snaps. He’s been not only a good player, but a great one while in the game. He needs more playing time.
