Bills versus Eagles 'night and day' for Peters
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
Mosley grabbed the big left tackle for a few minutes of one-on-one time and asked him a variety of questions.
Bills' fans still are sore over the way Peters boycotted training camp and all four preseason games last summer and eventually forced a trade in April.
The entire interview is enlightening, but I'll share two snippets that will resonate most in Western New York.
Mosley: How big is the difference between playing for the Bills and now playing for the Eagles?
Peters: It's night and day. In Buffalo, not having a chance to get in the playoffs was pretty rough. You might get off to a strong start, but then you lose four or five in a row and you're out of it. And then I was trying to get a contract done. If you're human, that's going to affect you. Sometimes I'd be thinking about it too much. Now, I've got a chance to go to the Super Bowl. The work ethic is stronger here. There's a lot more running and conditioning. That first minicamp was a wakeup call for me. I think we ran something like 16 100-yard sprints. We didn't do that in Buffalo.
Mosley: Just from looking at the stats last season, you gave up some sacks and had too many penalties. How do you explain that?
Peters: Hey, I was in Hawaii [at the Pro Bowl]. Players know, coaches know. A lot of times guys go up against me and get embarrassed. I can't win them all, though. I'm not perfect.
