Bills coach names Peterman staring QB

  • New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan celebrates with teammates during the second half against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in Orchard Park N.Y

Wednesday morning, the Buffalo Bills raised eyebrows around the National Football League when head coach Sean McDermott announced that rookie Nathan Peterman, a fifth-round pick out of the University of Pittsburgh, will get his first career start Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Coach Sean McDermott made the announcement Wednesday at a news conference.

"I spoke with Brandon (Beane, the general manager) like I do about every decision, but really, it's about becoming a better team and the quarterback position is not different".

Peterman, 23, replaced Tyrod Taylor in the final minutes of last Sunday's blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Instead of wasting nine games with Taylor under center this se ason and learning little we did not already know about him, McDermott should have begun his search for a franchise quarterback at the start of the season. In two series, Peterman finished going 7 of 10 for 79 yards and a 7-yard touchdown pass to Nick O'Leary. Peterman was selected in the fifth round of the draft after splitting his college career at Pittsburgh and Tennessee.

Buffalo (5-4) has lost two straight. "I wouldn't make this move if I didn't think he was ready".

For now, it appears that the unresponsive screen edges of Google Pixel 2 XL have nothing to do with hardware defects. However, we tried to summon Google Assistant with a pair of Sound One headphones and it worked absolutely fine.

Starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor had a awful game. Head coach Sean McDermott did not say what his status would be for the game.

"At the end of the day, we still have the same goal".

So much for believing in Tyrod Taylor.

Buffalo traded starting receiver Sammy Watkins and starting cornerback Ronald Darby in separate deals on the same day in August.

Beane told Postmedia in July that trading away Jones in July was meant to give Peterman more training-camp reps, after Peterman supplanted Jones as third-stringer following spring practices. Those are the cards we have, we got to play them.

That Beane and McDermott promoted Peterman to No. 1 at so important a junction in their first season in Buffalo qualifies as a huge surprise. "They want to just win when nobody's around". "We're not playing well, from (Tyrod Taylor) to me, guys up front, other playmakers, we're not playing well". "As a decision-maker you have to be willing to take calculated risks to get where we're trying to go".
