Peterman 50-yard run! 😂

The game is a full second slower in the preseason. It's the same reason why EJ Manuel typically looked solid against backups.

 

Things happens slower, so the decisions are easier, and a weaker arm is sufficient.

There is a good chance that he is going to make the roster as a backup qb. That's what he is; and that is what his role will be in this league. He is a Matt Barkley type qb who has a specific role. Although his limitations are obvious (as are Barkley's) that doesn't mean that he can't carve out a useful niche and a lucrative career in the league.

Matt Barkley is 174-291, 59.8% completion, 7.4 YPA, 10 TDs & 18 INTs, with a 68.3 rating in his career. 

 

Nate is 68-130, 52.3% completion, 4.2 YPA, 3 TDs & 12 INTs, with a 32.5 rating in his career.

 

Nate ISN’T a “Matt Barkley type.” That’s an insult to Barkley (who hasn’t exactly been Joe Montana). Barkley has been more than twice as effective as Nate. 

 

I promise that I'm done in this thread. Just want to provide FACTS to show just how bad Nate has been. Anyone can pick the worst QB that they can think of with at least 130 attempts and put them side-by-side. He will be worse. He was literally that bad. The worst that has ever played.

I say good for him if playing football is something he loves that he hasn’t thrown in the towel.

Vanilla defenses?

I've said it before and I'll say It again. I'm glad the Peterman experiment is over here, but I really hope he makes a team and has a great redemption story. As long as I've been a football fan, I've never seen anyone handle complete failure as well as he did. I give him a ton of credit for that and wish him the best.

Peterman was our best QB last 2 preseasons

for all the crap he gets, i'm willing to bet he ends up having a decent career as at least a backup. he'll get the last laugh....kinda like in a few years mason rudolph turns out to be the best qb drafted in 2018.

I wish this whole laughing at Peterman thing would stop. He is a thoroughly decent kid who tries his best but is simply not cut out for the NFL. Doesn't mean that he deserves to be ridiculed.

He does get paid a lot of money to not be cut out for the NFL.

This to go along with a passing TD and a rating of 115.3, lol

 

He ran for just about as many yards as he threw for. Easily the smartest way for him to play QB based on what we’ve all seen

I always knew he was better than what he showed in Buffalo

An NFL backup QB males waaaaayyyy more money than he could do anywhere else. So if he can extend his career one season, that's serious cash, and likely fun as hell too.

Your initial suggestion was that McDermott kept Peterman from being exposed to a defense's starting unit even once in preseason last year. 

 

There would be no "And after that?", to be posed if what you stated were true. 

 

Simple.

 

Good pickup.

See. We've were using him wrong.

we do have to keep in mind the state of the oline last year and not just give josh the pass...let alone it was the 1st 2 games with one in a monsoon....and against 2 of the best defenses.

What do you mean "And after that"? You said he was kept from facing ANY starters.

 

Each QB's preseason performance and position on the "depth chart" after training camp determined how soon and how much action each saw against the opposition's starting unit; Peterman from most accounts, was the most consistent QB during training camp: He got the first preseason start, McCarron was next, and Josh Allen---who the coaches were bringing along slowly---was last to start.

 

Peterman had a really good showing in his first start; McCarron put up pedestrian numbers before getting hurt in his first start and Josh Allen was granted the chance to move up the depth chart, in relief of McCarron ahead of Peterman; Josh Allen started the very next game, had a bad showing, and Peterman came in to relieve him in that game; McCarron recovered from his injury in time to play the final preseason game, and was given the whole game to make up for loss time due to the injury and to reestablish himself in the competition after his poor performance. 

 

McDermott played each QB from a logical standpoint, based on what each showed. 

 

This is what I remember happening. But the revisionists can't have any facts interfere with their scheduled 20-minute-hate.

Usually he only reels off these kind of runs from the offense's 45 in a Hail Mary situation. Growth!

Note how he lowered his head at the point of contact and earned another 5 yards as a result!

 

Great run! 

 

He'll never get respect around here for anything, though.  I get it.

In all seriousness, he’s underrated as a runner. He’s pretty effective when he takes off and he isn’t scared.
