That's retarded. If a coach told you to play, and you hesitated for a second guess what? I cut your ass tomorrow and let everyone know why. Good luck with your career after that.
Why are you taking this so serious? It really didn't happen like this. Tyrod was very professional and said in the press conference that he was going to keep preparing the way he normally does. He didn't reject the offer to go in. The reenactment was how he probably felt inside.
I have no doubt that the decision to bench him came from the front office. I'm sure McDermott knew Peterman wasn't ready but had to prove to them by throwing him to the wolves. The problem with this scenario is the Bills are still in the playoff hunt and now the players feels like the owner/front office is willing to throw that away for the "future."
When will it stop Mike? You've locked a few threads but that doesn't stop people from making offensive comments. It's time for you to make decisions like Roger Goodell and suspend some people from the board.
*Side note I've noticed if you are a rookie on the board and ask for help, your thread is sent to the help section. If you've are a "geek," you can do whatever you want.
