Richard Sherman goes after Buffalo Bills for benching Tyrod Taylor for Nathan Peterman

The Seattle Seahawks corner didn’t pull any punches

To say Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman had a rough outing against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday would be a big understatement. The rookie’s five first-half interceptions - three of which came in the first quarter - made for as bad as a performance as anyone has seen in quite a long time.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman obviously felt strongly enough about what he was seeing from Peterman, and decided to take to Twitter to vent his frustration.

With the Bills down 40-7 in the third quarter, head coach Sean McDermott put Peterman out of his misery and went back Taylor. Sherman made sure to let us know that it was the forgotten Taylor that gave the Bills their first passing touchdown of the game.

Although Sherman has never played for the Bills, he’s never been one to shy away for sharing his opinion, especially when it comes to defending his fellow players. It seems obvious from his tweets that one of the league’s best cornerbacks this decade has serious respect for Taylor’s ability to play the quarterback position.
