So i just got to thinking about the QB position in Buffalo behind Fitzpatrick, and got a really bad feeling. It seems to me that the Bills are lacking depth pretty badly right now.
Brian Brohm, it seems, might be a dead end. He has never thrown a TD in the NFL. His two starts for the Bills have been horrid losses (Atlanta and the Jets), and I am starting to believe that there is a reason the Packers left him on the practice squad. In my opinion, it might be time to let him go (I believe he's slated to become a FA whenever that all will start with the new CBA). I cringe thinking about something happening to Fitz and having Brohm come in as a replacement.
Levi Brown was the 3rd stringer this past season. I don't know much about him, as most people forget about 3rd stringers after the preseason. Brown was a project when the Bills drafted him. The Bills also cut him in the final round of cuts before the season started, then brought him back after the Bills let Trent Edwards go. He saw some time against the Jets after Brohm was yanked, but it was a lost cause and Brown threw a pick. Brown likely can still be classified as a project player at best.
Which leads me to my question: What do we do? Do you guys feel that the team should stick with Brohm as the backup? Cut one of the two backups and draft a rookie? Cut both?
I feel that we should cut AT LEAST one and go out once the new CBA is in place and get a veteran backup. There are some adequate backups out there, some even with starting experience. I favorite this move even if the Bills feel the need to draft a QB early, or even in later rounds. It seems most of this years QB class will benefit most from one or two years of bench time to learn. This also relieves any pressure if the starter goes down. You plug in your veteran backup, and let him manage the game.
Thoughts? I know i didn't name any names, and won't but you guys are free to throw around any names you feel like.
