Does Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor deserve to be benched?
As solid as Tyrod Taylor has been, the Buffalo Bills deserve a quarterback who takes advantage of the vertical weapons the team has. Taylor doesn't take any chances down the field, even though he has weapons like Jordan Matthews and Kelvin Benjamin to throw to. He plays things a little too safe, and that is not a winning recipe in the NFL.
Again, Tyrod was risk averse. He was afraid to push the ball down the field. Held his weapons back. Checked down immediately. That’s why he throws little INTs and great completion %
Quarterbacks usually get blamed for a lot of teams' shortcomings because they touch the ball the most, but Taylor should not be blamed for what's ailing the Bills. The Buffalo defense has given up 676 rushing yards the last two games. Should a quarterback be blamed for that?
The defense has also allowed other teams to stay on the field, giving Taylor no time to develop a rhythm. For the season, he's completed 64.2 percent of his passes, thrown for 10 touchdowns, ran for two scores and only thrown three picks in nine games. Taylor did not deserve to be demoted.
