- According to Greg Gabriel, a “certain very successful NFL coach wants out from his current team.“
- Gabriel adds that this mystery coach feels that it’s time for a change.
- I wish we provide more info than this, but it appears as though a surprising coaching move could be coming in January.
Bills HC Sean McDermott admitted that the five-interception performance from rookie QB Nathan Peterman “wasn’t what he or we hoped for” when they made the surprising decision to bench Tyrod Taylor last week.
“It wasn’t what he or we hoped for, but young players experience things like this,” McDermott said, via Buffalo Bills.com. “I don’t regret my decision. I regret the result. … This is in part about winning now and in part about winning in the future.”
McDermott added that he plans to review everything from the game before making a decision regarding their starting quarterback next week.
Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens that they’re sticking with Brett Hundley as their quarterback, despite the terrible outing.
“Brett Hundley is our starter,” McCarthy said, via PackersNews.com. “I believe in Brett Hundley. It didn’t go very well, obviously. We understand the standard that has been set here.”
McCarthy added that he clearly needs to do a better job with this offense moving forward.
“Anytime anything happens with the quarterback position, I take that extremely personal,” McCarthy. “I have to do a better job. I think there’s some things in the game, as far as (not) sticking with the two-back versus one-back offense, we’ll take a look at that as a staff.”
- Pro Football Talk reports that Rams WR Robert Woods has a shoulder injury, but it’s not believed to be serious.
Vikings HC Mike Zimmer admitted after Sunday’s win over the Rams that it’s going to be difficult to bench QB Case Keenum based on how he’s playing.
“It’s going to be hard to yank him out of there right now,” Zimmer said, per Chris Tomasson. “He’s playing good. I still have really high hopes. You know a lot of things happen throughout the course of this season so we’ll just see how it goes.”
Reports from earlier in the day mentioned that Minnesota was ready to make a change to Teddy Bridgewater at the first sign of struggles from Keenum. However, he’s played well enough to earn a longer lease than that.
