My theory on why Pierre is starting

47 posts in this topic

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.

The Panthers forum is funnier than the lounge now.

Were you saying that when Delhomme was here?

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.

    • The Washington TImes? Really? Why not use Breitbart as your source?


    • I can see the Cam injury.
      But the back to back winning seasons is weak, we were one game that resulted in a tie from having 3 straight .500+ seasons. And that 1 bad season we made it to the divisional round of the playoffs (just as far as last years Cowgirls made it) and lost on the road in a hard fought game to the team that shouodve won the superbowl if they would just hand the damn ball off to beast mode.
      We play in one of the tougher divisions, but outside of that we have a favorable schedule. Outside of the Pats, the AFC east has been one of the weakest in football. We play SF and Chicago who picked #2 and #3 in the draft for a reason.
      We play 3 of the worst 6 teams from last year. 6 out of our 16 games picked in the top 11 this year.
      Minn is in rebuild mode losing alot and could have Remmers starting at LT.

    • Because we have a CODE RED at safety and as recently as one year ago this guy was ranked as the 13th best strong safety based on a formula that makes as much sense as any for rating strong safety play.  http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2623986-br-nfl-1000-ranking-the-top-35-strong-safeties-from-2015 Matt Kalil has sucked for longer and we paid him far more at a more critical position.  Justifying that and not Pryor makes no sense to me.
