Ed Reed is in town. And Ray Lewis. Jon Beason and Steve Smith also will be on the field.
Yet the most anticipated player in today's Carolina-Baltimore game will be Panther quarterback Brian St. Pierre.
Not once in his eight-season career has that happened. Yet here he is, a Panther for 10 days, starting his first game.
I find the story absolutely compelling. I've written three straight columns about St. Pierre, so I must.
I hope he tears it up.
Then I can write a fourth.
