LeSean McCoy's benching shows riff with coaches, proves future with team is over

Category : Bills , NFL

Bills running back LeSean McCoy is wrapping up arguably the worst season of his career, and it’s clear that his time with the team is wearing thin.
McCoy has carried the ball 151 times for 488 times this season, with only two touchdowns. His 3.2 yards per carry is the lowest in his career, and it would be interesting to know what the reason behind that is. He had this to say about it after the game.
“We had a situation,” he said, via the New York Post. “And he was totally right. And it was a private situation,” McCoy said after the game. “I’m a captain. I gotta be more accountable. It’s as simple as that. He checked me. Put me in my place. That’s it.”
It’s unclear if injuries are bothering him, leading to that decline, or if the effort just isn’t there. McCoy made it very clear that he wanted to be traded around the time of the deadline, although the team elected not to move him.
He’s been with the team for four seasons, and the new coaching staff/regime, led by Doug McDermott, doesn’t seem to be working out with him. They’re a no-nonsense group, and McCoy seems to do better with players’ coaches.
McCoy currently has one year left on his deal, so if the team does trade him in the offseason, he’d essentially be a “rental” of sorts, but the Bills would definitely draw interest.
In the meantime, the Bills will close out the season with a Week 17 showdown against the Dolphins at New Era Field. They’re currently listed as 3.5-point favorites, and you can get betting advice for that game on this popular advice website here. It will be interesting to see how the Bills close out the season for sure, given that neither team is in playoff contention, but Buffalo has a lot to prove.
As for McCoy, he rushed for only nine yards on six carries in Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, so it will be interesting to see how much action he gets against the Dolphins.

The second half of the 2018 NFL Season will officially wrap up after Monday Night Football. Unfortunately, we don’t have any rookie quarterback action once again this week in the primetime spotlight. Over the last few weeks, we haven’t seen a ton of bright spots from the 2018 starting rookie class.
Are guys hitting their rookie walls? It wouldn’t be shocking. After all, it happens to the best of them. This week, all of the rookies that played, their game ended up resulting in a loss. Meanwhile, two guys sat out this week. One being Josh Rosen since he has a bye. And the other being Josh Allen because he is dealing with an elbow injury.
For the guys that did play though, it wasn’t pretty. This list has been a roller coaster all season long, and it doesn’t seem to be remaining consistent at all. So, let’s get to it. After a long week of losing and resting, where do the 2018 starting rookie quarterbacks rank?

Locker Room Pressure Forces Buffalo Bills to Start Derek Anderson

Nobody could delay the inevitable, as the Buffalo Bills have officially announced that Derek Anderson will start at quarterback for week seven. Last week, Bills starting quarterback, Josh Allen went down with a rather severe elbow injury that gave him the option to pursue surgery or not.
While Allen will not undergo surgery, he will be forced to miss multiple weeks moving forward. That left the Bills with a tough decision to make at quarterback. It’s either Nathan Peterman or the newly acquired Derek Anderson that will go under center.
First of all, let’s just say this. The Bills are doomed regardless. Even with Allen under center, the teams’ ability to win was questionable. Now, with either Peterman or Anderson under center, the result isn’t going to be favorable. But one thing is for sure though, the Bills are sick and tired of Peterman.
The Locker Room Won the Battle

Reports were flying around earlier in the week that if Bills head coach Sean McDermott does in fact, start Peterman this Sunday, then there’s a strong chance that he could find himself losing the locker room. While the frustration would make sense, what other options does McDermott have here?
Let’s see. They could start the second-year veteran Peterman, who has played in six games and has thrown three touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Or they can play Derek Anderson, who has started in four games over the past five years and has thrown for seven touchdowns and five interceptions.
Either way, the situation looks terrible. If Allen were dealing with an injury that requires surgery, then it would probably be best if the Bills made a trade for a quarterback. But as his injury seems to be short-term, they are just going to have to work with what they got. In this case, it’s Derek Anderson.
Fortunately for the sake of the locker room, Anderson gets the start. But what is everybody going to do if it doesn’t go well? They can’t blame McDermott. So let this be a message to the front offices out there. Find yourself a reliable backup for the sake of your locker room. It’s worth it.
