Bills rookie QB Peterman replaces Taylor as starter

  • Nathan Peterman Starting for Bills Over Tyrod Taylor is a Real Stunner

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has announced that Tyrod Taylor will be on the bench this Sunday when the Bills take on the Chargers in Los Angeles.

"I've been impressed with the maturity from Nathan Peterman". "We are made for more than 5-4".

"Certainly I spoke with Brandon, like we do about every decision", he said. The Bills' offense ranks 19th in the league in adjusted net yards per attempt, but Taylor just hasn't been a good fit with Sean McDermott's system or the team's personnel. "You know me well enough now to know that I make very few decisions from a knee-jerk standpoint".

It's possible that after two bad losses the Bills chose to press the reset button on this season, evaluate Peterman, and consider their quarterbacks heading into what's considered a deep and talented quarterback draft. That Taylor would remain the starter even though fans may want to see Peterman.

Tom Sizemore allegedly violated 11-year-old girl, removed from film set
Mufas says some members of the production staff " reached for hammers " and had to be talked down from confronting Sizemore . The actor had a reputation on the set for being hard , and was often drunk or high during filming.


Peterman, a fifth-round pick out of Pitt last April, saw his first regular season action against the Saints. He rarely throws interceptions - he has only three this season - but he's also largely fallen short when trying to move the ball quickly and lead his team from behind in games.

Taylor, 28, has been benched despite completing 64.2 percent of his passes this season and scoring 12 touchdowns while only throwing three interceptions. If they could, this late in the season, a bunch of them probably would drive over their own starting quarterbacks with a Humvee in order to get to Taylor. Maybe the Jets result was bad but the Saints are in the midst of a seven-game winning streak and are with the Eagles as the favorites to go to the Super Bowl among NFC teams. In two series, Peterman finished going 7 of 10 for 79 yards and a 7-yard touchdown pass to Nick O'Leary.

"Nate's come in, he's handled himself well". He's a hard worker, dedicated to improvement, whom teammates respect and admire. The success that he's had to this point, he's ready.

The Bills clearly don't appreciate what they have in Taylor, so the Broncos should make a move for the Virginia Tech product in 2018. Peterman and the Bills will face the Chargers in LA this Sunday at 4:05 ET.
