    Which QB would perform better offensively?

    Are we counting completions to both sides?

    Peterman has a 30.7 passer rating this season, that's incredible. Even Ryan Leaf was a good 10-12 points better than that.

    Peterman's continued employment in the NFL is reaching the realms of the bizarre. It's like an NHL team continually sending out a backup goalie who allows a goal on every fourth or fifth shot. After the third game or so, it just makes no sense at all to send him back out. Surely there are better options, probably dozens to be honest. I'd be interested to hear from the scouts who thought he was an NFL-caliber player.

    I haven't really watched much of Peterman, only looked at his numbers and heard about the horrid reviews......do the fans at Bills games just rip him up after every pick, or does he still have support from the Bills faithful?

    You'd think after a while even they have to draw the line somewhere. :help:

    Peterman is one of the worst quarterbacks in NFL history.

    There's the thought that since he's religious and the Bills coach is heavily religious too, that's the main reason why he's on the roster despite poor play

    Peterman also "looked good in the offseason" which is hilarious

    Again I don't work for the Bills and I didn't see him but you heard all thse reports about how he was "looking good" in Preseason so despite my vivid memory of him looking flat out awful after Tyrod was benched I was at least trying to be open minded. But he has done NOTHING in this league

    This wouldn't shock me. I've never seen a QB with results like this continually get sent out there. An non-football explanation seems reasonable in this case.

    To be fair it was looking like McCarron would start over him, but then he got hurt and then traded.

    They then tried to go with Josh Allen, but he got hurt.

    They then tried to go with Derek Anderson, who also got hurt.

    Obviously he sucks, but it's not like they haven't noticed he sucks either. They've tried to replace him, it just hasn't worked out.

    Peterman should have never been drafted. A lot of his touchdowns during his senior year at Pitt came on shovel passes and screens. He played under center though. That matters more than having the talent to play to the dinosaur scouts.

    might be that they can both pray together for new jobs in a few months time

    Why is it bizarre? You seem teams do dumb stuff like this all the time in the NFL and NHL.

    Isn't he undrafted FA?

    Sean McDermott is a defense guy and Bills defense is good. The problem is offense. What do you want him to do with that shoddy QB options? Cannot believe they got rid of Tyrod Taylor. He is not great but he is world better than peterman.

    EJ Manuel. He is right, he should have an NFL job over Peterman.

    Peterman was a 5th rounder.

    I doubt a CFL team will even look at him. He has no options once Buffalo finally releases him. To be honest though he probably could have carved out a 2-3 career as a backup then a year or two as "borderline starter" then a year or two as a "reclamation project" then a year or two as a "veteran backup" and then maybe a year or two in the CFL/AAF. So that's like a 8-10 year career. Instead he was rushed into a starter role he could never fill and will likely be out of pro football in 2 years. I do feel bad for him a bit. But yeah he will never be a pro QB.

    The OP talked about Ryan Lindley. I saw this guy embarrass himself even at the CFL level, and after watching Peterman to be honest I'm not sure he's any better. Both are a product of the fact that NFL looks for a certain type without regard to talent, IMO. Neither should ever have been close a pro career, IMO.

    This guy just had a 3-pick game and it brought his career INT average DOWN. This is above and beyond normal dumb stuff that teams do.

    Safe to say any highlight reel could be called the "Nathan Peterman Bust Tour"?

    Or is he even considered a bust? Figured one has to have been held in high regard at some point to be called a bust.

    5th round picks are lottery tickets. Basically anything after the 4th round is.
