Oh, to be a Buffalo Bills fan.
Despite drafting their (hopefully) quarterback of the future, Josh Allen, No. 7 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Bills on Monday announced Nathan Peterman will start Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. It’s a decision that isn’t going over well among members of Bills Mafia, considering Peterman posted just two touchdowns and threw five interceptions with a 38.4 passer rating in four games last season.
But you wouldn’t know that by the hype video the Bills posted to Twitter on Monday.
Check out this tweet:
Unsurprisingly, the Bills omitted highlights from Peterman’s five-interception performance against the Los Angeles Chargers in his first NFL start. The 24-year-old completed 6 of 14 passes for just 66 yards before being yanked at halftime.
The Bills, of course, can’t be faulted for trying to put a positive spin on the situation. What are they supposed to do, say that Peterman stinks?
Perhaps it would’ve been smarter just to not tweet at all.
