Buffalo Bills bench Tyrod Taylor, will start Nathan Peterman at quarterback

Following their atrocious 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 10, the Buffalo Bills made a change at quarterback, replacing former starter Tyrod Taylor with rookie Nathan Peterman.

It all reeked of McDermott waiting for a chance to yank Taylor all season, and grinding his teeth through their 5-2 start because he had to wait longer than he had planned.

Running back LeSean McCoy wasn't sure what to expect from Peterman, who hasn't had extensive playing time since the preseason.

McDermott also said that there's no great time to make a change at quarterback. I understand the headline part about it.

McDermott was asked if the move sends the wrong kind of message to the locker room, when the Bills find themselves in the rare position this century of entering late November with both a winning record (5-4) and in line for the sixth and final AFC playoff spot.

So much for believing in Tyrod Taylor.

If teams were that smart, a whole lot of them would be camped on Taylor's doorstep, waiting on the day the Bills either put him on the market or release him. "And we are made for more than 5-4, and I've come here to be more than 5-4".

The decision comes after Taylor struggled against the Saints, going 9 of 15 for 56 yards and an interception.

Overall this season, Taylor has thrown for 1,684 yards, 10 touchdowns and three picks while completing 64.2 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 91.4. They've surprised most observers with their hot start, buoyed by a stingy defense and and a passable offense led by Taylor, who has statistically been above-average this season.

"Moving forward I have to help him in any shape or form". However, he's not going to let the move impact his role as a team leader. He finished 7 of 10 for 79 yards in his first National Football League regular-season action. Still, McDermott liked what he saw, and has liked what he has seen since Peterman walked into the building seven months ago.

McDermott says he is impressed with his maturity as a young player. He has certainly worked hard.

Peterman will have an opportunity to show what he can do against a Chargers' defense that has improved over the last couple of weeks.
