Unfortunately we don't have "a bunch of running backs" or this would make better sense.
I got it! It's genius! St. Pierre plays the first series, softens up the Ravens' D. Then Pike goes in and takes over. :yesnod: Win!
Srsly IMO Fox is protecting Tony Pike. The 2 QB's ahead of him both ended up with concussions and as a rookie maybe Fox felt the chance of it happening to Pike was high.
I'll support St. Pierre as a Panther. It actually makes the game a little more exciting to start because I have no clue how he plays.
This makes sense to me. Maybe Fox is trying to tell the Front Office something also, think about it, after we cut all our vets, we sunk to the bottom. Fox maybe thinks a vet QB could help bring some sort of life support to our offense. It is true he is a 3rd string Qb, but look who he was behind, Kurt Warner and the once believed savior in Matt Leinart. Gotta keep the faith.
edit: oh yea back on the protecting QB's thing, look at the size of AE, if anyone gets a clean hit on him he is gonna be broken in half. And maybe tony pike is too big of a target lol?
