nobody even suggested today that the Panthers give the ball to Edwards for a few plays and see if the spread qb's (Pike and Edwards) aren't the best chance for respectbility on offense. How could it be any worse than the 2 qb's (rated in the 50's in 32 team leage.)If Edwards is susccessful maybe they could trade him.

The Panthers should give Armanti a chance at QB. Nothing to lose. He can play and will surprise. But why, if he becomes successful, would you trade him?

Passer ratings in the 50s doesn't mean they are actually rated vs other quarterbacks in the league. It's a grade with a formula involving % of passes completed, passing yardage, interceptions, etc. Vince Young has the highest rating in the league at 103.1, believe it or not, with Peyton Manning next. However, Matt Moore has a 55.1 rating which ranks him 31st n the league, which is bad enough.

@123louie has interesting stats. His leaders--Vince Young and Peyton Manning--both operate out of spread offenses just as Edwards and Pike did in college. Is John Fox missing something obvious?
Not just two unused but talented QBs but an offensive scheme that makes full use of versatile quarterbacks and produces yards and points. Something to think about.
But I'm with "gradyhog" on his point. If Edwards and/or Pike turn out to be players, why trade them? That sounds like the strategy that has the Panthers 1-6 and fading fast.
Hey--Scott Fowler, how about using your media clout to pass the word to on to Fox & Company: 1. Spread the offense & 2. Play Edwards and Pike
