With incumbent starters Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick leaving little excitement in the minds of Bills fans at the end of the 2009 season, there is an open competition between Edwards, Fitzpatrick, Brian Brohm, and seventh round draft pick Levi Brown, out of Troy.
While Levi Brown will most likely be leading the practice squad during the 2010 season, the competition between Edwards, Fitzpatrick, and Brohm will be an interesting one.
Edwards looked ready to take over the reigns of the franchise in 2008 until his injury against the Arizona Cardinals in Week six. However, upon his return he was never able to regain his confidence and lead the team to victory.
Ryan Fitzpatrick showed signs of life during the 2009 season, scrambling for touchdowns, throwing bombs to Terrell Owens, and leading the "so-so" attack of the Bills. However, his mobility is questionable, and he is much better suited as a solid backup.
Brian Brohm was highly regarded as a top-five pick coming out of Louisville in the 2008 NFL Draft, but was never able to make it to the field until Week 16 of the 2009 season against the Atlanta Falcons.
With Brian Brohm comes youth, strength, as well as the determination that usually comes with new coaching regimes.
My Prediction: It will be an interesting struggle between Trent Edwards and Brian Brohm, but the new coach, Chan Gailey, will go with the new and mobile Brian Brohm for opening day.
