      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name.

Peterman was historically bad on Sunday

Recommended Posts

I'm still so angry at the coaching staff for the ridiculous move at QB. This doesn't help, exactly, but it does put it into perspective. We have gone from "the Bills are in great shape to make the playoffs" to "we are in deep, deep s#it" so fast, my head is still spinning.

 

Per Deadspin:

Although I understand the sentiment the QB change doesn't explain getting destroyed at the Jets and Saints games. I wouldn't exactly call that "great shape". I'd call it clinging to hopes of a wild card birth. Not even clawing for a divisional title.

So he can only improve right? I know we're all upset at how bad he performed but what do we have to lose now if we start him again? My only concern is about McDermott "losing the locker room". Yet I'm not sure if our current core leaders will be along much longer as I can't see Kyle staying around longer and Lorax looks like age finally caught up with him leaving us a chance to pursue more McDermott guys like Star Lotulelei who's set to be an UFA this offseason.

Maybe not. 1 half = 5 ints  2 halves = 10 ints?

Starting Peterman is going to turn out fine.  For Nate it will certainly raise his preparation level and he'll learn from it.  For Tyrod the benching got his attention and he'll be a more determined player for whatever minutes he plays for Buffalo the rest of the year. That and the offensive line was often exposed for how bad they are. 

 

The Bills weren't winning that game no matter who played QB Sunday.  The Chargers most definitely are a more talented team.

One never really knows, I mean who could have predicted Frank Reich leading the come back against Houston after our disastrous start?  No, I'm not saying Peterman would lead us back only one never really knows as one would think things would follow as they started yet hard to know for sure.

He was shellshocked with Post Traumatic Bosa Syndrome.  He wasn't leading anything, not even to the gatorade dispenser.

I'll agree with you but he also had a pretty horrific start in the NCAA at Tennessee and he bounced back when he got to Pitt so I haven't lost all my faith in Peterman but he did damage part of it with that horrible showing.

My opinion of him hasn't wavered since preseason. Long term backup type.

Does anyone else hold Dennison partly responsible for this? I mean I can’t blame a rookie alone for a historically bad day like that. It’s the OC’s job to prepare the rookie QB and call a game that favors him. Leaving Bosa 1-on-1 and putting us in constant 3rd and long situations gave Peterman no chance.

So you're thinking he needs to transfer now? Interesting take :D

The one drive we did commit to the run we had a 2 play TD drive...

It's a fair assessment since he doesn't have ideal NFL arm strength and if he turns out to be that, that's still great value from a 5th Round draft pick.

It is funny because McDemott still hasn't named a starter fir Sunday.   Heck the real media has forgotten the story because no one in his right mind would star hime.....

 

The media though really doesn't know Buffalo......

One could also wonder had Benjamin not gotten hurt how different would have things looked? As Nate was moving the team prior to the tipped INT.

If our entire offense's success is predicated on a single player that wasn't even on our team until week 9 and didn't play until week 10 then we have even bigger issues than everyone thinks.

All I'm saying it changed the how things were planned for prior to Sunday. We likely would have still lost because of the poor defensive play but maybe not as badly.

The passing offense might have since we've seen how bad it's been without Matthews in previous weeks and one could argue even with Tyrod as the starter the offense is dependent on Shady McCoy and let's not forget Clay is coming back from injury so Nate didn't have as much time to develop timing with him too. Look I'm not saying Nate didn't play horrible because he did yet at the same time I agreed with the move away from Taylor as to me he'll never be good enough to be anything more than a glorified game manager. If I'm McBeane I want Nate in there more to see if he can turn things around from a horrible first game or not so I know what to do this offseason. As right now it probably mean drafting Rosen or Rudolph yet I can't dismiss one player after one game.

When the "leadership council" talks to McDermott about "the head coach losing the locker room," he should show clips of Taylor checking down on 3rd and long while down multiple touchdowns, the OLine letting defensive linemen run by unscathed, and the defense missing tackle after tackle before saying "This is where the locker room lost the head coach. Now get the !@#$ out of my office."
