Buffalo Bills: The Nathan Peterman experiment is officially over
The Buffalo Bills made the inevitable a reality by cutting Nathan Peterman one day after Matt Barkley led the team to a great victory.
The era is over. The Buffalo Bills have officially released Nathan Peterman.
This statement from the Bills came late Monday night as the team announced via their Twitter account that:
This came with an overwhelming celebration from Bills fans who have had to see him endure interception after interception. Though it is very insensitive for people to rejoice at the notion that someone has just lost their job, Peterman was historically bad at his job.
To put into perspective just how bad Peterman’s two-year long stint was with the Bills, he surrendered 12 interceptions on 130 career attempts, giving him a career completion percentage of 52.3…Yikes.
The release of Peterman was something all Bills fans were expecting to happen at some point or another this season.
Many were surprised the former Pitt QB didn’t face the chopping block after his abysmal outing again the Houston Texans where he was intercepted twice. Then he threw three interceptions against the Chicago Bears two weeks later in a 41-9 thumping at New Era Field.
For the Bills, this can mean a variety of different things.
Either Josh Allen is ready to play after rehabbing his elbow injury, Derek Anderson has been cleared from concussion protocol or Matt Barkley is the second coming of Joe Montana.
As we say goodbye to what some people on social media were calling: “The worst quarterback to play in the Super Bowl era”, he now joins the list of failed Bills QBs behind the likes of EJ Manuel, who called Peterman out for his performance a few days ago, Trent Edwards, J.P Losman and Drew Bledsoe.
As the 3-7 Buffalo Bills look to build off a big divisional win against the New York Jets and a Week 11 bye, this marks the time for decisions like this to be made.
