Tyrod Taylor Named Bills' Starting QB Again

Tyrod Taylor Named Bills Starting QB over Nathan Peterman in Week 12 vs. Chiefs

After losing the last two games in embarrassing fashion, Bills head coach Sean McDermott shocked the National Football League when he made a decision to bench starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favour of rookie Nathan Peterman, to turn their season around against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The relationship with the Bills coaching staff going forward is mixed. "It's the right thing for our team". And focus-wise, you can't let things hurt your focus. Today he announced that veteran Tyrod Taylor will be back in the starting lineup. The smartest move from McDermott would have been riding Taylor through the Chargers, Chiefs and Patriots games before deciding to try out Peterman against the Indianapolis Colts on December 10. Just like a week ago, I felt like the right thing for the team was to start Nate [Peterman]. You sit here and say, 'Hey, Thanksgiving, close to the end of November and we're in the hunt.' You sit around the table tomorrow and say, 'We're in the hunt.' There's a lot of teams that wish they were in the hunt. "We stuck by the decision last week [and] we stick by this one", Micah Hyde said. However, McDermott says he still feels the Bills are a postseason contender.

"I wouldn't have sensed anything like that coming", Eric Wood said.

Now McDermott has corrected his mistake, but not without showing his hand on Taylor to him, the locker room and the rest of the NFL.


A three-game losing streak, during which the team has steadily regressed to historically bad levels, seems to have convinced McDermott that putting greater effort into a playoff run might not be such a bad idea after all.

McCoy's reasoning is the experience Taylor and McCoy have playing together. "That's what to me leadership is all about". Ultimately we're here to win games.

Taylor said he hasn't "really thought about" 2018.

"Put it behind me, learn from it, visit it maybe sometime down the line", Taylor said. "We're both working hard to do whatever it takes to find a win", he said.
