It appears Brian Brohm is in the running to be the most popular man in Manitoba, also known as the Bombers’ backup quarterback.

The 28-year-old from Louisville, Ky., has moved past Max Hall on Winnipeg’s depth chart and is now running the second team offence behind starter Drew Willy. Brohm had a better pre-season game than Hall on Saturday night, and he’s looking much more comfortable in offensive co-ordinator Marcel Bellefeuille’s offence than he did at the beginning of camp.

“I feel like things are coming along well,” Brohm said today after practice. “I feel good about where I’m at. I still have a lot of improvements to make, but I do feel good about the progress I’ve made so far. I’m just going to keep my head down and keep working hard.”
