Bills bring in Brian Brohm

Though it’s still not clear who if anyone is running the show in Buffalo, someone had enough juice to land second-year quarterback Brian Brohm.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Bills have signed Brohm from the Packers’ practice squad.

Per the Journal Sentinel, the Packers matched the two-year deal that the Bills presented to Brohm.

And so ends the short stay of Brohm in Green Bay.  At a time when plenty of Packers fans are carping about the performance of G.M. Ted Thompson, the fact that he officially has squandered a second-round pick from only a season ago will do nothing to close the pieholes of the Cheeseheads.

Only two years ago, Brohm was regarded as a possible top-five selection, with speculation that his former Louisville coach, Bobby Petrino, would reunite with his pupil via the high first-round pick that the Falcons were destined to secure.

Two years later, Petrino is long gone from the NFL.  Brohm, who fell all the way to the bottom of round two in 2008, is now getting a second chance.

The prompt arrival of Brohm in Buffalo after the termination of coach Dick Jauron suggests that Jauron didn’t like Brohm.  Surely the franchise didn’t make this decision in a day; our guess is that someone had been lobbying for the move, Jauron had been blocking it, and now that Jauron is gone, in comes Brohm.

    Huh….he was practically handed the backup job but got beat out by a 7th round draft pick.
    Yeah he wasn’t given the chance.
    Spoken by a guy who must not pay attention to NFL football outside of his or her team.

    So is the Gibran Hamdan era over?

  5. Pack83 says: Nov 19, 2009 8:38 AM

    Not given a chance???? He couldn’t beat MATT FLYNN for the GB backup spot. He was essentially locked in to the #2 spot after being drafted last season and played so poorly that a 7th Round rookie beat him out.
    The Packers need a legit backup QB…if Rodgers ever got hurt you’d see why he’s probably the league’s most valuable player. Take him off the Packers, and you can pretty much lump them in with those bottom 7-8 teams in the league.

  7. lebowski says: Nov 19, 2009 8:43 AM

    Ted Thompson picked up a very good college quarterback at the end of round 2. At the time everyone assumed it was a steal. There are many examples of teams taking very good college quarterbacks at the top of round 1 and not working out. Get off his back.

  8. Chickenfoot says: Nov 19, 2009 8:44 AM

    Give it time pack 83, they will get there this year(bottom 7-8 teams)

  9. mnmaverick says: Nov 19, 2009 8:45 AM

    Pfffft, With that receiving corps and defense? I doubt it.

  10. JimmySmith says: Nov 19, 2009 8:47 AM

    In the final analysis, Brohm sucked, sucks today, and will continue to suck well into the future so I haven’t a clue why the Bills would even waste a roster spot on this bust of a QB.
    While I am no fan of Ted Thompson, it should be at least mentioned that QB’s are the biggest crap shoot in the NFL draft. If that’s the good news, the bad news is that TT didn’t need to draft a QB that high and swung a missed, not by a little, but by a lot.
    Add that swing and a miss to Justin Harrell (1st round), the underperforming AJ Hawk (5th overall, 1st round) now Brian Brohm and Brandon Jackson (2nd rounders), Pat Lee and Aaron Rouse (both 3rd rounders) as well as numerous latter round busts and the cutting of the punter (last year) and a free safety (this year) in two key positions that haunt you the rest of the season and you don’t have much a resume. Its ammunition enough for Mark Murphy to step in at season’s end and send TT packing (no pun intended)
    Actually TT would be perfect for the Vikings. They love Packer castoffs and the rumor is his sexual orientation will be perfectly suited for a cross dressing head coach and a fan base that is collectively pretty light in the loafers.

  11. SlipperyPete says: Nov 19, 2009 8:52 AM

    Yeah, Brohm did nothing in GB. Seemed like a nice enough guy, but the light never came on for him. He needs a fresh start to perhaps jumpstart his confidence. Flynn, however, has steadily improved since he arrived and looks like a legitimate backup for the Pack.

  12. green&bold says: Nov 19, 2009 8:55 AM

    Brohm just doesn’t have it. Weak arm and no moxy. Thought he was a steal late in the second too. Don’t really blame TT for that. I blame him for plenty of other picks though.

  13. The Family Ghost says: Nov 19, 2009 9:08 AM

    How was he not given a chance in Green Bay? The second he was drafted he was handed the backup QB position. The Packers didnt even go out to get a veteran backup in A-Rodg’s first year. He was given plenty of opportunities, and unfortunately just does not have what it takes.

    Failing to beat out Matt Flynn should be enough to tell you he was a bad pick.

  17. Jeanna says: Nov 19, 2009 9:18 AM

    Good for Brohm. I hope it works out well for him…he’s a great kid. After watching him throughout his college career I was shocked at how poorly he performed in GB and hope a fresh start is what he needs.
    @Pack83 you could not possibly be more correct about Aaron Rodgers…except if he keeps taking sacks it won’t be an “IF he gets hurt” situation.

  18. bearsrule says: Nov 19, 2009 9:25 AM

    This is why I’m not a college football fan. Guys like Brohm who are “great” in college, but can’t play a lick in the NFL. It’s practically impossible to tell if QB’s will be any good. Remember when Brady Quinn was great ?

  19. leatherneck says: Nov 19, 2009 9:28 AM

    How strong is Brohm’s arm? The only quarterback the Bills should get is one with a strong arm to throw through the windy conditions of Buffalo and the northeast. Prototype: Tom Brady. If you can’t get Tom Brady, get somebody with his arm strength.

  20. champ1315 says: Nov 19, 2009 9:41 AM

    Forget the fact that Brohm is coming in. This marks the tragic end of “Hanging 10 with Hamden”, one of the more interesting weekly talk shows hosted by a third QB you will ever see.

  21. dcfan-1212450 says: Nov 19, 2009 9:45 AM

    I did not see how poorly Brohm played at Green Bay, but did it at all have to do with the Packers weak offensive line? And as much as people liked Brohm, clearly scouts saw something that prompted him to fall the last second round out of top 10 and to be demoted to practice squad in his second year. Doubt he plays this season anyways.

  22. nasheagles says: Nov 19, 2009 9:46 AM

    They need an O Line— True Brohm was beat out by Flynn– but that doesnt mean he’s not better than what the Bills are throwing out today… They should light up the scoreboard with the talent they have at WR and RB… someone picked up the Clue phone as Edwards and Fitzpatrick are probably both gone next year.

    lebowski says: “Ted Thompson picked up a very good college quarterback at the end of round 2. At the time everyone assumed it was a steal. There are many examples of teams taking very good college quarterbacks at the top of round 1 and not working out. Get off his back.”
    *********
    There’s a reason Brohm slid to the end of round two after teams saw him at the combine and individual workouts (weak arm, inflated stats due to the system ran at Louisville).
    The bigger question is why Ted Thompson drafted him. With so many areas that needed upgrades (offensive line, running backs, D-line and LB depth, a young cornerback of the future, another quality kick returner), why waste a 2nd round pick on a guy you hope will just be a quality backup QB? With Aaron Rogers having little experience at the time of the draft, the smart move was to get a veteran QB with starts under his belt rather than an inexperienced backup.
    And what if Brohm had panned out? You would have lost him after a few years when he decided to pursue a starting job as a free agent. In the meantime you would have another QB controversy if Rogers had struggled and Brohm had performed well.
    Overall the philosphy of taking the “best player on your board regardless of position” is really dumb. Yeah, everyone says they do it, but they really don’t. Why take Brohm and Jordy Nelson in two positions you are set at while other positions are neglected?
    It’s no coincidence that the Packers have had an overall losing record the past two years.

  24. longrodvanhungendong says: Nov 19, 2009 9:52 AM

    What the hell happend to Trent Edwards? I admit, I haven’t really watched many Bills games this year but how did he fall from grace so fast? I thought he had been injured this year. From what little I saw of Brohm, he lacks confidence.

  25. nmc says: Nov 19, 2009 9:52 AM

    From what I saw of Brohm in the preseason, he has limited mobility … he looks like he’s running in quicksand. He also looked slow to make decisions, but that may be because of the system.
    I know QBs don’t necessarily have to be speed demons, but the Buffalo offensive line will prevent a slow player like Brohm from having success.

  26. gbsparks says: Nov 19, 2009 9:58 AM

    Good move on both ends.
    Brohm had plenty of chances in two pre-seasons to show something and he failed miserably. Flynn demonstrate that, regardless of draft position, he is a gamer while Brohm proved he was a good practice player.
    Brohm gets a chance to play on a bad team, which, realistically, is his only chance and the Packers quit wasting time trying to make a good college qb into a good NFL qb, an impossible task at this point in Brohm’s career.

  28. Bzilla says: Nov 19, 2009 10:06 AM

    Hey Jimmy Smith –
    Yeah Brian Brohm failed to pan out, as well as a small army of other Packer picks. Doesn’t take a football genius to determine these facts. And yes, Ted Thompson is a turd. Whether he is gay or not – is that in any way relevant??
    Do known Packer failures have anything whatsoever to do with the Vikings – other than ensure an annual sweep? Highly doubt that Vikes fans have any higher percentage of “light in the loafers” – (as you say) fans than does your favorite team. Being a homophobe would be a pretty weak pedestal to bark from, anyway. Your comments must make you fell like a “real man” lol
    Just for the record – I couldn’t be any more “straight”. It’s 2009, grow up!

    Yeah, if Rodgers would have been knocked out last season, the Packers could have finished 6-10. Even worse, if Rodgers was knocked out this year, GB could have lost to Tampa Bay. Good thing the MVP hasn’t been hurt yet….

  31. tjb71 says: Nov 19, 2009 10:21 AM

    Brohm’s problem is absolutely terrible footwork. I almost gagged watching him this pre-season. It was bad last year and he clearly hadn’t worked on it. He couldn’t get anything done as a result. Just a reminder, this was during this pre-season when the Packers offense looked unstoppable against vanilla defenses.

  32. MikaV says: Nov 19, 2009 10:21 AM

    Yeah, lets dump on TT missing in the second round, when in the same draft he got a capable backup in the seventh. Great logic.

    Flynn isn’t a “capable backup” by any means, he’s just better that Brohm. That’s no big deal, you probably are too.
    A real GM would have signed an established veteran backup after seeing that his picks were both crap, but then, that would have required two things: Admitting to a mistake, and spending unplanned funds. Thompson has proven to be incapable of either.

    “Highly doubt that Vikes fans have any higher percentage of “light in the loafers”
    I don’t possess a scientific survey but based it on two main factors. First, Minneapolis is second only to SF in overall gay population and higher than SF on a percentage basis. So logically, if the Vikings draw their fan base from the Twin Cities area, statisically there is a greater probablity that my statement is true.
    Secondly, most gays don’t know squat about football and the Viking fans are equally ignorant as evidenced by most of their posts on this site. Is that a coincidence or might it be just a function as their chosen lifestyle, who knows for sure? But anytime a head coach in the NFL wears a dress, most fans would want to run the guy out of town. Instead, the Vikings give the fruitcake a contract extension.
    Nneed I say more?

  40. purpleguy says: Nov 19, 2009 11:29 AM

    Clearly Brohm is a bust and yet another in a long line of lousy picks by TT, but at that time most teams figured the guy was second round talent at worst. What cheesers should be miffed about is why the team drafted a QB in the second round when they already had Rodgers as their QB of the future. That 2nd round pick could have been used for any of the 5 offensive line positions, all of which are manned by below average players and likely will remain that way for several years as TT continues to build through the draft.

  41. JuicyMelon says: Nov 19, 2009 11:54 AM

    Look at how good A-Rod is going in Green Bay. Not that good at all. He can have all the stats in the league, but if is team is losing on a consistant basis that he has been, then he is not good. Brohm was not handed the backup job in GB, he was giving an opportunity in a horrible system. TT and MM don’t have a clue on how to run a team.
    Jimmy,
    While the Vikings do take random Packer’s players, the NFC North has stolen from eachother since they were the NFC Central. While in recent years it has been Packers going to Vikings, a look back will show that the Bears, Lions, Bucs, Vikings, and Packers have taken random players from eachother. Reason? Well that’s because they see them most often. That’s also the reason KC/MIN exchange players, they scrimage every year.

    And if you do a little research, you would see that SF is the highest per capita, and New York is 1st in total numbers. Minneapolis isn’t in the top 15 population wise. Try doing a little research before spouting off with your made up trash. Now get back to work, homophobe, the bathrooms need cleaning before the Arby’s lunch rush.

    *******
    Since when is using two draft choices, including a 2nd rounder, to get one “capable back-up” the sign of a good GM? With that logic, in the typical draft you come away with 3 or 4 back-ups and no talent to improve the team.
    And on an unrelated note Jimmy Smith is a closet homosexual. Day after day all his posts revolve around homosexuality (He even knows and can recite stats about gay populations!). It’s the people that are the most homophobic that are actually the repressed homosexuals. Just like the father in “American Beauty.”

    leatherneck, Tom Brad has slightly above average arm strength. You make him out like he has a cannon and it’s not true.

And yes I know Jamarcus sucks, that has nothing to do with it.

    I choose to root for Favre, and not the Packers, because of the direction that Thompson is taking the team. He chooses his ego over success, which I don’t want to be a part of. By rooting for Favre, and not the Packers, I’m doing my part to not support TT. You choose to support the Packers, and even if you don’t like TT, you’re still supporting him. I still follow the Packers, I just want them to lose now so TT will be gone. I still respect and appreciate Favre, so I cheer for him. You voice your disdain your way, I do it my way. I think we can agree to disagree on that.

    Very fitting username you have. Most of said castoffs were Packers before Thompson’s tenure, he likes to get rid of those, and the ones that aren’t are either practice squad players or third stringers. Not exactly the hallmark of a great GM.
    At least you’re right about one thing though: I will say what I want about Thompson. I just pray I won’t have to keep saying it for much longer.

    Anyone that says the Bills are wasting a roster spot on Brohm is crazy. They did the right thing in cutting Gibran Hamdan. He was a lot like Dick Jauron, decent dude to talk football and have a beer with, not a good guy to try to get to contribute to your team.
    Hamdan is all over buffalobills.com with stupid a** stuff, playing his guitar, interviewing teammates, he was a waste. Roscoe Parrish was listed as the 3rd QB the past few weeks.
    Brohm is a good pickup for both the Bills and Brohm. The Bills get another QB in that is going to play football and not guest host stuff on the team website, a player who will work hard in hopes of moving up on the depthy chart.
    Brohm also helps himself by getting on an NFL roster and having the chance to get on the field in November and December and show some teams what he can do.

    What about TT’s first two picks this year? Both are playing at a high level with Matthews possibly taking a stab at Defensive ROY. Has Thompson missed badly on draft picks? Absolutely, but you would be hard pressed to find a GM in this league that hasn’t bombed on a number of picks.
    I think the problem with the team lies with MM and the coaching staff. Poor line play, too many penalties, and defensive players out of position have combined the last two years to lead us to a sub .500 record. I’ll give the defensive issues a pass right now because it is a new scheme and they looked pretty damn good against a high octane Dallas offense last weekend. The line play and penalties on the other hand are the direct result of poor coaching. Wasn’t it Ted Thompson who took over as GM for Seattle when Holmgren was Coach/GM? And didn’t he build a team that went to a Super Bowl? That is the only history we have on Thompson and it says that a well-coached Thompson built football team can get something done. TT is aggravating because he will not spend money in the Free Agency but I’m willing to give him more time, it is Mike McCarthy who has to go if the team doesn’t turn it around this year.
