    Comments about Nathan Peterman being a "good guy"

    Which makes him a great guy too, who hasn't gotten a coaching job since.

    WTF with the “feel bad for Peterman” posts?

    Sure 50/50 to play Peterman, but it was an unmitigated disaster and highlighted the inability of the staff to assess the QB they drafted through training camp and to that point in the regular season. NP was going to be drafted & was not a reach. McD though and his continual defense of him and blind loyalty was something else to see. I said and am convinced that in the LAC game he wanted NP to keep going back in and if not for the fifth pick would have started th second half. It was only when it was an unmitigated disaster that he was pulled.

    Instead of starting another thread, will start here. I doubt more then 1% hate Peterman. What the other 99% hated was the decision to start him vs. LAC in 2017 and then McD, wanting to double down with him as the QB over and over and over. If he didn't get concussed vs. Indy & they won 13-7 (or whatever the score was), I'm sure he would have started the rest of the year. They then brought in another stiff in McCarron to fight for the interim job in 2018 and again Peterman was named the starter. He just was not good, and that is not his fault. What we hated was McD continually having him as the viable option. Hope he does well, as yes if he is as nice a guy as people say he was then "all the best".......

    Bills Release Peterman

    XFL, he'd be perfect as a WWE Babyface. Any other cut at any other position and there'd be barely a peep. Unfortunately for NP, McD and the braintrust at OBD really made this a national joke.

    Could you imagine if a player said "Praise Allah"? Not a bias at all. Too bad you can't see that. Theyt are sseparate and distinct.

    I'm not religious, but remember clearly when Norwood lined up that 1990 kick and players kneeling in prayer (others holding hands). Didn't help..... It is very difficult to debate and believe me, when I say I feel bad for Peterm an, but he was put into way too many postions he had no right or ability to be in and one wonders over and over as to what went into those decisions.

    Faith is brought up too much talking about the Bills (or is it just Nate). Is this a fact or not (very serious)? "Faith based leader" too gives me reason to pause.

    And there's the issue and the Bills heirarchy continually makes you wonder how much faith comes into their decision making when choosing players. I want good character guys. Faith shouldn't factor in at all, but seems to inordantently be a criteria with the Bills. This is the NFL, not Notre Dame, SMU.....

    Saw an NFL Offense today - Not from an X & O's expert

    Speed yes matters, but running routes and passes to the right person at the right time helps too. No doubt better playcalling too. Pretty easy to see that. Oh and the Jets are bad.....
  10. Foster made a catch that a pro should make. He had a step on the DB and the pass was perfect. Sorry very little adjustment and the pass was where it should be. Give me a yard and I too better catch it. I was impressed he adjusted on his third catch and watched the ball the entire way and came back. You see those every week and expect the catch to be made.

    No it was different yesterday, just the formations were more creative (or 2018 football). Heck it was only 230 yards passing, but as starved fans, it seemd like 400.....

    Better close this thread. I said this too and it certainly is a theme played out over and over...... It deserves to be debated not closed (as mine was).

    The Bi8lls spread the field, thus allowing a running game too. And underneaths 4-5 yards downfield, not 1-2...... It looked pretty simple amd high %.
  14. I get tired of people explaining the nuances & X & O's in football. I've been watching the game for over 45 years & yes you have to scheme plays & offense, but today was very easy as the Bills looked like an NFL team on offense. Barkley completed only 15 passes, but they spread the field on formations, there was movement on the line and they completed simple plays that were well designed, easy reads and completions. They threw downfield and into seams down the middle. Three long completions. First a perfect pass to an open receiver in the field of play and right in his hands. Zay Jones another easy 35 yard pass that was on the money where it was one on one coverage. The last to Holmes underthrown, but only the receiver had a chance to adjust, did and a fairly easy catch. Yes a few bad throws, but also too ones where the receiver caught it running. Didn't look hard or ridiculously complicated, but accomplished because receivers were running patterns and the field was spread. Sort of like watching a real NFL team. It was refreshing.....

    Game Balls vs. the Jets

    Exactly...... Spreading the field and completing passes is exactly the point...... Again these dinosaurs have it backwards about the running game. Wow formations and passes we haven't seen in 9 previous weeks......
