The Bills QB spot remains wide open with camp getting close, and Friday The Courier-Journal spoke about Brian Brohm, who suddenly feels he’s ready to step in and run a Bills offense that has been as stale as month old bread the past few seasons.
Heading into his third season in the National Football League, Buffalo Bills quarterback Brian Brohm feels he’s ready to compete for a starting job. “I’ve had two years in the NFL to get used to everything and get myself prepared,” Brohm told Michael Grant of The Courier-Journal. “I feel like I can fully compete for this starting job. I feel like I’m ready to take charge out there. We’ll see what happens. But I feel like I’m at a position where I’ll be able to put my best foot forward and make a legitimate run at the starting job.” Injuries to Ryan Fitzpatrick and Trent Edwards thrust Brohm into his first NFL start in Week 16, where he completed 17-of-29 passes for 146 yards with a pair of interceptions in a 31-3 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. Gailey plans to have a pecking order in place for training camp, which is expected to have Edwards first and either Brohm or Fitzpatrick second and third, with 2010 seventh-round pick Levi Brown fourth. Due to Brown’s upside, Edwards, Brohm, and Fitzpatrick may be vying for just two spots. “This offense is suited for me,” Brohm said. “I feel good about that. I’m comfortable with every read we have, every throw we have. Almost everything we’ve done, I’ve done it before either in college or my first couple of years in the league.”
