Richard Sherman might not play for the Buffalo Bills, but he’s still sticking up for their quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Taylor got benched in favor of Nate Peterman before the team’s game against the San Diego Chargers. It was a pretty weird decision given the fact Buffalo is currently in the playoff hunt, and Taylor is played reasonably well.

It turned out to be a complete disaster. Peterman threw five first half interceptions, and was quickly sent to the bench for Taylor.

The Seattle Seahawks star defensive back was not pleased with the Bills for ever taking Taylor out of the starting lineup. He fired off several tweets about the situation to voice his displeasure.

Pretty hard to disagree with anything Sherman said. Benching a quarterback is a decision that can cost a coach his job, especially when the backup throws five interceptions. It is a circus up in Buffalo right now.
