“To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best.”
The old cliche is oft-recited through the football world, but don’t tell NFL defensive players. In a survey conducted by The Athletic during the season, 18% of 72 respondents said future Hall of Famer Tom Brady is the quarterback they would most like to face in a big game. Brady topped the list of responses.
Peterman, of course, didn’t finish the season on a roster. He was cut by Buffalo in mid-November. According to the article, “many of the responses are from November”. Most of the rest of the polling took place before November, as indicated in the article.
It should also be noted that Peterman also received votes when folks were asked, “Which quarterback would you least want as your teammate in the locker room?”
