I agree with Maniac. Taylor has been struggling a lot so the bar is pretty low right now. If anything, Peterman might take far less sacks than Taylor would have taken against Bosa and company. Taylor at QB is pretty much a lock for 5-6 sacks against that Chargers front seven pass rush. Peterman? We obviously don't know but there is a chance maybe he only gets sacked once or twice. Couldn't say the same for Taylor if we are going by his play the last few years.

The worst case scenario for Nathan Peterman is to struggle offensively and they were doing that anyway, so there's nothing to lose with this QB change. Why would McDermott wait until it's too late and when they're out of playoff contention to see what they have in Peterman? Yeah, I know Taylor's feelings are hurt, but the ship is sinking now and we've seen this from the Bills for many seasons. They have gotten off to a hot start only to fizzle and miss the playoffs repeatedly. If Peterman can move the ball and put points on the board against a formidable Chargers defense, it looks like a genius move.

The more concerning issue is the Bills defense. That was supposed to be their calling card and they're terrible right now. It doesn't matter what their offense does if their defense plays as bad as it has the last 2 weeks. With all this negative talk about the Bills, I still like them here just because I think the homeless Carson Chargers will find a way to beat themselves as they have historically done. It should be a close game though.
I agree. It's a game which could go either way. The Bolts also (historically) have a way of shootin' themselves in the foot! It should prove to be interesting.

Last week: 8-6
Overall: 81-66* *since my Giants to win pick over the Rams week 9 was so terrible, that I gave myself 3 losses for picking it, that's why my total is 2 higher than it should be.

The Marcus Mariota's @ the Squeelers. Squeelers got crushed at home by the Jags, and were lucky to beat the Colts last week, while the Titans are 3-0 the last 3 weeks against the AFC North, so logically speaking you would think the Titans would win right?? Wrong! In a matchup of equals I will take the home team that doesn't have to travel in the short week, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if the Titans won. With my record, the Titans probably win anyways!

Is it too late for me to pick tonight's game? Two weeks in a row now, and both easy picks. Dangit!

The feeling amongst the board members is that once a game ends by at least a full 60 seconds, there can be no more claims to the highly sought after, and most elusive W.

You will be allowed to keep your position in the phalanx, however any further inappropriate advances will be severely dealt with -- up to and including suspension, fines and a vigorous slap on the wrist.
