It's been quite the week at One Bills Drive. On Tuesday, head coach Dick Jauron was officially relieved of his duties and replaced by interim coach Perry Fewell.

Jauron's release came after three and a half seasons of mediocrity. In his time with the Bills, Jauron accumulated a record of 24-33 going 7-9 for each of his three full seasons. The team currently has a record of 3-6.

On Wednesday there came the announcement that Ryan Fitzpatrick would replace Trent Edwards as the starting quarterback. Fitzpatrick went 2-1 while subbing for the injured Edwards.

(This is counting the game in which Edwards got hurt, Fitzpatrick played most of that game but Edwards was officially credited with the win.)

Although he was not overly impressive during those games he did enough to win and that's all Bills fans are asking for at this point.

Personally I believe the Thursday announcement to be the best decision of the week was the Bills' signing of Brian Brohm off the Green Bay practice squad.

At first glance, this seems like nothing, but I personally watched Brohm play in college (even living in New York, most of the games were recorded, since I already knew the outcome I just watched Brohm) and he is a very impressive player.

He has the skill set to succeed in the NFL and backs that up with decision making that is un-paralleled. If even a small fraction of that talent is transferred to the NFL, he could well be the Bills QB of the future.

That's right.

I said it.

Quarterback of the future. Mark it down right now.

I know most of you are saying how can he be that great if he's never started an NFL game?

I feel this is mostly due to the city he played in. The Packers wouldn't even change their starting QB for the greatest that ever lived (statistically so don't argue). What chance did a second round draft choice realistically have?

As long as Brohm stays healthy and is given the chance to show what he's got, expect great things.

I hope to soon be the proud owner of a Brohm jersey.
