Is Brian St. Pierre really the Panthers best option?

Original Post:

First off, I am an unabashed Armanti Edwards fan (but I've been a Panthers fan since before he was a teenager).  He should get the rock, especially at this point.  End of discussion really.

As previously noted by others, our own Tony Pike had both a better collegiate career and has thrown more NFL passes than Brian St. Pierre.  So why Brian?  Think about it.  Couldn't we have brought in a number of cats who have actually played for John Fox?  Wheres Randy Fasani at?  Wheres Hunter Cantwell at?  

But more importantly, if we have to go and buy a free agent quarterback and throw him into a game a few days later, why not reach out for someone who can win games?  Jeff Garcia and Dante Culpepper are both playing football in the UFL.  I think Josh McCown is still available.  Jamarcus Russel even at his worst has at least taken some snaps in the last part of this decade.    

As a consumer of this sports franchise, I really feel like I'm getting a pretty poor product.

Jaxon's input:

I try not to change the content of fanposts I choose to elevate to the front page too much but since I was already planning to tackle this topic I thought I could simply add to what Kyle has posted since he seemed to capture exactly what i was thinking...err, actually I mean answer his question with my own postulation:

 

I think John Fox is sick of having to take the cheapest option out there instead of being given the freedom (and dollars) to bring in someone who could actually make a difference. It's like having to shop for formal clothes at Wal-Mart, the good stuff simply is not available in the limited price range.

So Fox says..."Well if that's all I got to work with I'll just show Jerry exactly what his minimal budget will buy" and put the guy on the field as see what happens.

Of course we all know what is going to happen. Brian St. Pierre (BSP) is going to get pounded, probably knocked out of the game. So once the Panthers are down by about 20 points and BSP is ailing we'll bring Pike in for some more mop up time in the 2nd half.

That's my theory.
