Brohm likely to get the nod for Bills this Sunday

Originally, Chan Gailey said that Ryan Fitzpatrick would remain the Bills’ starting quarterback in Week 17. But that was before he knew that Fitzpatrick would miss practice the entire week with a knee injury. Thus, Brian Brohm is slated to get his second career start for the Bills. Let’s hope it goes better than his first career start: a meaningless Week 16 game last year against the Falcons in which the Bills took half the game to cross midfield (seriously).

Brohm is an interesting story. At Louisville, he was at one point considered a first-round prospect. His reputation declined, though, and he wound up being taken by the Packers in Round Two of the 2008 draft.

The Packers, of course, already had their young quarterback of the future in Aaron Rodgers. Few people asked at the time why in the world they would select a quarterback in the second round. Sure enough, Brohm was never relevant there and got shipped out after one season. (This isn’t to say he didn’t get a chance; Matt Flynn, who was Green Bay’s seventh-round pick in ’08, beat him out for the No. 2 job.)
