Don’t look for Brohm on game field

A lot of fans are curious to see just what Brian Brohm might have to offer at the quarterback position for the Bills. The only problem is they’re unlikely to see it on a game day this season.

Interim head coach Perry Fewell confirmed what offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt mentioned when Brohm was first signed by the club a few weeks ago. Joining a team this late in the season, it would be very hard to have him effectively assimilated into the offensive system where he’d be able to execute effectively on a game day.

“Brian has a limited role on our team in practice,” said Fewell. “He doesn’t take a lot of reps with our offense. He takes reps with our practice squad. As we have let him take reps he has an impressive arm. He throws the ball very accurately. He makes good decisoins when he’s throwing the football. When we call the plays he’s in tune with the plays and what we’re doing. So he’s an impressive young man from that aspect.

“When we run pressures and blitzes and he’s the scout team quarterback he looks like he has poise back there in the pocket. I think there are  lot of good things on the horizon for Brian. It’s just so late in the season for us to work him into our offensive system and let him take reps with our number one or two offense that we’re not able to do that.”

So it seems clear that unless both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Trent Edwards succumb to injury in the same game, that seeing Brohm in a game is highly unlikely.
