Sean McDermott confirms Tyrod Taylor remains the starting quarterback

The Bills gave Nathan Peterman some time at quarterback during Sunday’s 47-10 loss to the Saints and Peterman got the team into the end zone for the only time when he hit Nick O'Leary for a seven-yard touchdown with 1:54 to play in the game.

Peterman went 7-of-10 for 79 yards on a day when Tyrod Taylor was 9-of-18 for 56 yards and an interception, but any notion that the look at Peterman in the fourth quarter would lead to more was snuffed right after the game.

Coach Sean McDermott said that the team saw being on the wrong end of a blowout as a chance to get Peterman some game action rather than the move being related to Taylor’s play. McDermott confirmed Taylor remains the team’s starter with a game in Los Angeles against the Chargers on tap.

Taylor’s numbers from the Week Nine loss to the Jets look better, but he tacked on stats after the Bills went down 34-7 in what turned out to be a 34-21 loss. More of that could lead to a longer run for Peterman at some point, but the Bills are still 5-4 and in the mix for a playoff spot in the AFC so it’s not a big surprise that they aren’t shaking up the offense.

  1. Taylor had 4 years behind Flacco to prepare to be and Nfl quarterback. This is his 3rd year as a starter. We know his ceiling. Its Peterman time. If that goes bad, the Bills definitely need to trade up for a franchise quarterback.

  2. Bills fans are so delusional, they convinced themselves Taylor is an NFL QB and the Bills are an NFL team.

    Just lose baby.

  3. Taylor is a fake QB wearing a Halloween costume every Sunday.

    It is time to dispense with any notion that this guy has any pro football QB skills.

    But then again he’s black.

    ‘Nuff said.

    You have to love how you hide behind a computer screen with 9 IDs in your parents basement, be a man, cross the border. You have nothing in Toronto, nothing.

  5. 2nd consecutive week of total Bills team fail, where has the defence gone? Sad to see but it seems things are falling apart rapidly.

    For you Tyrod lovers, horrible playing today…56 yards total passing? I am sorry, not the number you will see from a franchise QB.
    Sadly he didn’t get his chance to again pad his stats during garbage time. Yes D stunk, but so did TT.

    Bills are headed for that 7-9 or 8-8 season again, and this management needs to think long term re-build. This includes starting Peterman soon, let’s see what he’s got and give him valuable game experience. They also have to be thinking QB at draft day.

  6. Write what you want about joetoronto but let’s not forget that he wasn’t the one after the patriots spanked the bills last year wrote I hope the patriots plane crashes that was billswillmevermove #kingoflosers

    And look, he creates a 10th one, very easy to see and look up, funny thing is he is too dumb to know it. Toronto must be boring. And if you look back at many of his posts, all of his ID’s he always brings up the race card. He did it all the time with our past GM.

    But PFT lets him post a racist remark, so nice. He does it all the time under different ID’s.

    Wrong, and wrong again. It’s that loser from Toronto that did that, not me. He has so many ID’s on here it’s no funny. Just like that other Joetoronto on here that is a Bills fan? He pulls same stuff with his ID’s and copying others.

  10. To all of you saying “i guess its tyrods fault our defense couldn’t do anything”, even though you are being sarcastic,you are right. When the offense can only go 3 and out and take 1 minute off the clock and leave the defense on the field for over 40 minutes i dont expect them to do much. Grated yes they have to be able to make a stop, but tyrod/dennison keeping them on the field too often doesn’t help.

  11. It’s no problem guys. The Bills are in Los Angeles next week. There are at least four QB’s in town better than Taylor. Twice that if you count the local high schools. We just need to quietly swap him out without anyone noticing.

  12. It’s as if the jills want to continue their streak of being out of the playoffs. What is it, jills? Do you acknowledge that you have no chance of ever winning a Superbowl? Are you too embarrassed from previous losses that you don’t want to do it again? Save yourselves the humiliation and join the arena league. You might not suck there

  13. Tyrod is just not the answer. I’m sorry, I like the guy and I know he likes being a Buffalo Bill, but I truly do not believe he is capable of leading any team to the playoffs. How badly did he miss Benjamin early in that game and set the tone? Teams know that if you stop McCoy, you stop the Bill’s offense. Then again, who doesn’t know that?
