The "right thing" would have been sticking with Taylor, instead of going with the ill-prepared Peterman on Sunday against the Chargers' ferocious defensive line.
"That's all part of the process", McDermott said. Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott has made a decision to go back to Taylor in an effort to try to salvage their season following three consecutive losses.
Nevertheless, Taylor is back into the starting lineup. "You don't really see rookies come in and kill it in this league. I think right now it's best if he's in there", McCoy said. "We're in the hunt". Ultimately we're here to win games.
"Tyrod Taylor will be our starting QB this week", McDermott said. At this point, however, we can not confidently say Taylor will stay under center - even if that's the best choice. "But right now it's about the Chiefs and whatever it takes to finally win week in and week out". "This team is still very much capable of making the playoffs". McDermott's insistence he is a methodical decision-maker should be open to scrutiny after the back and forth at the team's most important position. Taylor completed 15 of 25 passes for 158 yards and had one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown after replacing Peterman at halftime Sunday. In the second half against the Chargers, he threw for a touchdown and ran for another, but also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. "I'm always trying to find ways to get better, and there are ways that I can get better and I'm attacking those each and every day". "I didn't in the past and I won't in the future". If McDermott truly thought Peterman was a better option to get the Bills to the playoffs this season, it seems to be wishful thinking.
