A Breakdown: How Nathan Peterman Is Historically Bad at F...

Nathan Peterman Is an NFL quarterback for theNew Orleans Saints, but previously played for the Buffallo Bills, Las Vegas Raiders, and Chicago Bears. Born in Jacksonville, Florida on May 4, 1994. He's taken a rocky road from college football to the NFL, mixed with a ton of hardships, and an all-time bad NFL debut.


College Stint and NFL Draft

Peterman began his college career playing for the Tennessee Volunteers before transferring to the University of Pittsburgh in 2015 as a graduate transfer. His journey to the NFL started when he was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.


NFL Debut Disaster


The hype around Peterman rose when he was named the Bills' starting quarterback in 2017. However, his NFL debut against the Los Angeles Chargers turned into a nightmare. He threw an astonishing five interceptions in the first half, an unprecedented feat in modern football history. This catastrophic performance led to his benching at halftime and marked the beginning of his struggles in the league.


Historic Infamy

However, Peterman was historically bad in his debut, finishing with an absurd 0.0 passer rating. The legacy of his NFL career is set, the record-breaking incompetence would follow him, and he would never evolve past the promise bestowed upon him in both high school and college.


More Struggles 

Despite subsequent opportunities, Peterman's struggles persisted. His career NFL statistics as of 2023 include 160 passing attempts, 85 completions, a completion percentage of 53.1%, 4 touchdowns, and a staggering 13 interceptions. His on-field performance failed to reflect the potential that many had hoped for when he entered the NFL.


Impact on the Buffalo Bills

The aftermath of Peterman's debut debacle affected the Buffalo Bills with force. The team had the difficult task of handling a disgruntled QB who had not lived up to those sky-high expectations placed upon him. His historical showing had rippling effects throughout the building that trickled down to future quarterback decisions and team dynamics. Thankfully, a year later they would draft their franchise QB, superstar Josh Allen in the 2018 first round.


Legacy and Lessons Learned

Nathan Peterman's short NFL experience is a stark example of just how brutal professional sports can be. Somehow, he is still a third string quarterback for the New Orleans Saints currently and managing to to stay in the league while doing nothing productive all these years later. 
Overall, Nathan Peterman will always be known for arguably the worst game any quarterback has had since at least the turn of the century, and he'll forever serve as a reminder of just how merciless the NFL can be on young quarterbacks. To go from college to the pros, his path was more serpentine, a cautionary tale in trying to predict sports.
