The good news for Brian Brohm is that Jeff Fisher, in a break from tradition due to the fact the Titans will have played 5 preseason games, is only planning on playing most of his starters the first few series for the final preseason contest against the Packers tomorrow night. This means Brohm may actually have a fighting chance rather than the hopeless night of futility that would have been, watching guys like Jamon Meredith try to block the likes of Kyle Vanden Bosch.
The bad news for Brian Brohm is that you can not move for reports that the Packers are looking at bringing in a quarterback somewhere down the line. Both Adam Schefter and Michael Lombardi have indicated the Packers talked about putting in a claim on Patriots castoff Kevin O’Connell, who looked even worse than Brohm this preseason. Not only that, but Lombardi seems to feel that the Packers will be spending the next few weeks shopping around for a veteran signal caller.
Now, Brohm did look better Friday night against the Cardinals. Of course, he really had nowhere to go but up. Tomorrow night will practically be a showcase for the guy and you've got to wonder if the Packers aren't almost secretly hoping Brohm lights it up so they can possibly trade him before picking up a veteran.
I think this would be a mistake. They've spent this much time on him - it doesn't make sense to get rid of the guy just as he seems to be 'getting it'. Yes, he's been a horrible disappointment thus far, but the league's history is riddled with QBs that looked awful their first few years before getting cut by their teams and having success elsewhere down the road in their careers. Better to keep Brohm for at least one more year and see if he can continue to develop.
