Because the idea of him is more powerful than playing him (not that good) @dave3264 why wont they just start brohm and see what hes got?

Tuesday Morning Quarterback - ESPN
"I was sitting with a group of fairly knowledgeable football people on the day of the draft, and they actually laughed when Buffalo chose Maybin so high. To select Maybin, Buffalo passed on Brian Orakpo and Matthews, both pass-rushing linebackers who made the Pro Bowl as rookies and are playing red-hot again this season. On Sunday, Matthews was fantastic and Maybin was invisible."

The Bigger Picture – Week 2 |
"That's why we're here, folks. The Bigger Picture reminds you that in 2012, when the Bills are a competent football team again, you'll fondly embrace 2010 as a season that needed to happen in order for serious change to occur. Those franchise quarterbacks don't go to teams with mid first round picks, now do they?"

NFL quarterback carousel's already spinning out of control - Don Banks -
"In Buffalo, Trent Edwards is taking a seat (again), and Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the chance to snap a 13-game Bills losing streak against the Patriots in Foxboro on Sunday. It's the fifth in-season QB change for the Bills since the close of their brief Drew Bledsoe era in 2003."

Bills sign RB Anderson to practice squad -
"The Bills had a spot open up on their practice squad when RB Joique Bell was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to their active roster on Tuesday. Buffalo quickly filled the vacancy signing RB Andre Anderson."

Run game to remain a mixed bag -
"In two games played head coach Chan Gailey has started two different backs in C.J. Spiller and Marshawn Lynch, and the player filling that starting role at tailback will be determined on a week to week basis."

Inside The Bills | Not the same Patriots "
"I’m not saying the Patriots are ripe for the picking. They’re still a quality football club, but I do think the Bills should be able to do a few more things in terms of approach than they could in the past. "

Gailey keeps Bills' options open at running back - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"It depends on the package," Gailey said. "That all depends on the packages that we deal with. We're trying to develop packages for each of our guys and it depends on which packages we go with."

BULLDOG: Troubling Signs For The Buffalo Bills - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"Here are some things from the Week 2 dismantling at Green Bay that bothered me. They have nothing to do with the QB running out of bounds for a 1 yard gain on 4th and 11 down by 27 points."

Power Rankings: AFC East still influential - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"The Bills have stated a convincing case for being the worst team in the league. Although they did hang tough against the No. 7 Dolphins on opening day, their game at Green Bay was an abomination. The Bills already have switched quarterbacks, and I don't think Ryan Fitzpatrick will ignite a hot streak."

Replacing Edwards long overdue - Wellsville, NY - Wellsville Daily Reporter
"Count me as those who were fooled into thinking Gailey could turn Edwards — at the very least — into a serviceable NFL quarterback or saw a more confident player during the pre-season. It was all a mirage because Edwards is the same tentative guy who is unable or unwilling to take chances down the field or even on intermediate pass plays."

Struggling Bills can look to Green Bay example - Hornell, NY - Hornell Evening Tribune
"One thing was painfully clear during the Packers 34-7 dismantling of the Bills — Buffalo simply lacks the raw talent to compete with the likes of Green Bay, a likely Super Bowl contender."

The Buffalo Bills Radio Network is pulling ads for from it's broadcasts saying that ads for a service designed to cheat on your spouse are in poor taste.

Orlando, the second home of the Jaguars? - Big Cat Country
"The Bills current Toronto series provides the closest parallel for a Jags/Orlando series. The thought process for Bills fans was that losing a few games a year to Toronto, it was better than the team packing for LA. The general perception has been that the Toronto series has been a failure."

On September 22, 1962 the Bills gave away 5000 rabbits feet as a way to change the team's luck. They still lost.

Scott Pitoniak: Opining on the Bills QB move and more
"I give Chan Gailey credit for pulling the plug on Trent Edwards after two pathetic performances. We’ve certainly seen enough of Trent over the past four seasons to tell us that he is not the guy to revive the moribund Bills. The bottom line, though, is that the Bills will continue their losing ways because there just aren’t enough talented players on their roster – and that includes quarterback."

Is Fitzpatrick the answer? - NFL Blog Blitz
"But the problem some Bills fan have now is why is Fitzpatrick getting the nod to be the next starting QB? The city of Buffalo saw enough of the Fitzpatrick show last year when he started nine games for the Bills. And while he did win five of those contests, there wasn’t much excitement behind his game, definitely not enough to be considered a "spark" for the current Bills offense."
