"There was an unmistakable downcast mood in the lockerroom following Sunday’s 17-10 loss to New England at "The Ralph." It started with interim coach Perry Fewell.

Hamdan or Brohm? – Inside The Bills
"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.
