With Gibran Hamdan on the roster it’s a strong indication that perhaps both injured quarterbacks for the Bills might not be ready for Sunday’s game at Atlanta.
With Ryan Fitzpatrick and Trent Edwards both nursing significant ankle injuries, the staff obviously felt adding a fourth QB was a necessity and Gibran Hamdan is the right kind of insurance. There isn’t another quarterback out there that knows Buffalo’s system better than Hamdan, who has been immersed in it for the past three seasons.
If it comes down to a decision between Hamdan or Brohm because Fitzpatrick and Edwards are not available, I’d expect to see Brohm start. After all this coaching staff waived Hamdan to acquire Brohm. But if the staff is concerned about having to water down the offense too much to accommodate Brohm, I wouldn’t rule out Hamdan.
Hamdan has a better familiarity with the system and has worked with the skill positions players on offense for a much longer time than Brohm. Still Brohm is viewed as a better all-around talent. It’ll be interesting to see what Perry Fewell has to say in his Wednesday afternoon press conference, which we will carry live on Buffalobills.com. Fewell is scheduled for 2:30 pm.
