1. Pike did not go above and beyond to distinguish himself from Pierre in practice.

2. It's a convenient way to avoid a QB controversy the following week. Even if Pike doesn't play well, many fans will want to see more and at this point Fox wants to take QB off the table.

Pierre = stop gap measure

I really hope conspiracy theorists don't run crazy with this thing. He might be starting simply because he gives us a better chance to win than Pike or AE. Crazy thought, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

You make a lot of sense. Fox'll want to put Claussen back in next week and on track for finishing out the season.

The season's a wash, but he might be able to save any chance Claussen has of becoming a starting quarterback after this year.

In the meantime, St. Pierre is the sacrificial lamb.
