Wednesday’s quarterback switch in Buffalo came as a shock to most Bills fans – and to Tyrod Taylor.
Sidelined for tenderfoot Nathan Peterman, the veteran passer was compelled to answer inquiries concerning the switch minutes after mentor Sean McDermott made the dazzling declaration.
“Truly,” Taylor stated, point clear, when inquired as to whether he was stunned by the move.
“Disillusioned with the choice. Clearly, I don’t concur with the choice,” Taylor said. “I need to do what’s best for the group in my new part and push ahead.”
Unmistakably baffled with the downgrade, Taylor straight advised journalists again and again to “ask mentor McDermott” why the switch was made.
Prior Wednesday, McDermott said the move was “tied in with winning now,” while recognizing “Tyrod is a piece of the reason we are the place we are at five wins and in the playoff chase.”
Taylor thoughtfully offered to work with Peterman, the group’s fifth-round pick, to plan for Sunday’s basic conflict with the Chargers.
“Advancing I need to help him in any shape or frame. I need to enable this group to succeed,” Taylor stated, taking note of that “folks will look to me much more to perceive how I react in this circumstance.”
Said Taylor: “Everything I can do is control the open doors I get over whatever is left of the season and manage that as it comes. … At whatever point you take somebody off the field and prevent them from contending, it’s an extreme thing to experience.”
The thrashing Bills (5-4) have lost two straight and end up on the edges of the AFC playoff picture. With two tilts against the Patriots and a confrontation with the Chiefs still to come, the timetable is a doozy.
Taylor isn’t Aaron Rodgers, yet he’s done bounty to help Buffalo this season, ensuring the ball well and enough dealing with the offense. It’s reasonable for ask how Peterman will react behind a hostile line that has permitted the seventh most sacks in the NFL.
