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.
So they bench my guy @TyrodTaylor and the guy they bring in has already thrown 2picks with 10mins left in the 1st. Great decision— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 19, 2017
Wonder what they are gonna say after this game about @TyrodTaylor .... one bad game and he’s benched. Do you cut the new guy after this half?— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 19, 2017
I love the NFL. Very difficult to hide bad decisions especially regarding personnel. The fire of the NFL exposes all.— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 19, 2017
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.
Score out of hand but first passing TD of the day.....@TyrodTaylor ♂️— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 19, 2017
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.
