Sports Illustrated cast J. Peterman, a character from the 90s sitcom “Seinfeld” played by actor John O’Hurley, to pay homage to former Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman and his short career.

The guy can’t catch a break. The Nathan Peterman experiment crashed and burned in Buffalo when the Bills released the quarterback on Monday.

But Sports Illustrated decided to pile-on with a Seinfeld-inspired video lamenting the fall of the qb.

The website cast J. Peterman, a character from the 90s sitcom “Seinfeld” played by actor John O’Hurley, to pay homage to Nathan Peterman and his short career , “A treasure and a disaster all rolled into one. Nathan Peterman taught us that there is joy in failure.”

The ode titled “J. Peterman on Nathan Peterman” is slam after slam on Peterman’s performance. And though Nathan Peterman wasn’t very good, many commented that the video was a bit harsh.

Nathan Peterman, who played quarterback at Pitt, last two season with the Bills where he played in 8 games, throwing 3 touchdowns, rushing for one touchdown, but throwing 12 interceptions for a career passer rating of 32.5.
