Which QB is behind door number two for the Carolina Panthers?

It's.... Keith Null!

As the Carolina Panthers recover from Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens one thing was abundantly clear, that Brian St. Pierre was trapped in a duality of being ineffective and in severe pain from Sunday's game. Honestly, such a situation should have been expected from a guy not used to playing and being out of the league for the 2010 season. Though St. Pierre didn't get hit too much it was enough as he told reporters yesterday that if there was a Monday practice it would be unlikely he could participate due to soreness in his throwing shoulder.

Enter Keith Null, the quarterback linked to the Panthers prior to the signing of St. Pierre. Unlike the first stint, this one seems to stick. To be clear: Keith Null was the backup plan IF the Panthers couldn't land St. Pierre... read that again; feel better? 

The 2009 sixth round pick started for games for the St. Louis Rams where he posted a 49.9 QB rating while throwing 3 TDs and 9 INTs.

Here is Null's stat line (courtesy of NFL.com):

Feel any better about the Null signing? I don't really. I liked the idea originally when it first came up wondering how much was a rookie caught in a bad situation, but now that it looks like given the direction of this football team Null could be starting for the Panthers if QB Jimmy Clausen can't play I like it a lot less. 

Time will tell.
