I heard it on the radio today, and there is a thread about it on a Ravens board.

He might be better than Wright or Stewart...

Who wil they bring in next..... Jim Miller or Tee Martin? :grin:

I'm surprised it took them this long...the reasons are clear. He's been with us, what? 3 years? He knows our offense as well as anybody.

This move was made strictly to pick his brain and help them gameplan for our offense.

Yeah!
St. Pierre and Korkie can :tap: tagteam and come up with the gameplan for the Steeler-Rat game on Halloween. :rofl:

At that point Ray-Ray and the rest of the Thugs could be 0-6.

St. Pierre holds a clipboard well, and Kordella knows how to wing an INT (or 5) into the endzone, that's for sure...

yeah they tried using Kordell's brain as well to help them against us.. didnt quite work, and he was a starter then.. so Im worried about it..cowher knows Brian will talk to the ratbirds about us, so they'll make sufficient changes in the play calling, cadance, looks, etc. Remember knowing what the team will do doesnt mean you can stop them!

Yeah, well, there's 2 things to consider here as well:

A) The new 4-6 employed by the Rats is a failure so far
B) Their offense sucks ass, even with J. Lewis running.

They are looking for any edge they can get, and, remember, Brian was also sitting in on every single gameplanning meeting WE have had for the opposition for 3 years running. Maybe they are literally trying to steal our playbook?

Won't work. The personel in Baltimore is awful...

I agree, they want to know more about our team. I cant figure out why they are so worried about us, they have alot more troubles than just us. They are sad. And I love it. :bouncy:

It worked for Jacksonville. We were all they ever thought about, and they consistently picked up players from our scrap heap. I think it was Jim Miller who was the pick-up when we actually tumbled for a year.

EVERY team in our conference will always mark their schedule when they play us, and will always have an inferiority complex in the face of a legitimate NFL Dynasty. The Browns are the only possible exception, but almost everyone who can remember when they won championships is either dead, dying or senile.

This is exactly what I was afraid of...I put wrote something about this happening right after he was cut, but I can't remember where it was.

St. Pierre is a smart guy. He will remember our playbook. Ultimately, I think the Ravens are just too weak a team for this to make a difference though. It would have been worse if he went to a better rival.

Every team in the league knows basically every other teams playbook... every team watches countless miles worth of video on their opponent every week. They already know what a teams tendancies are, where they strong points are and who the go to people are in key situations. There are only so many variations of plays that teams will run, they just disguise them differently each week and use them at different times.

This isnt as big of a deal as it may seem, IMO.

"I'm actually happy to get a fresh start, especially on a team like this," St. Pierre said. "We'll go from there. It was a tough situation for me in Pittsburgh. They're really deep at that position."

St. Pierre may not be in the active roster, but he's hard to miss in the locker room. He took Derek Anderson's stall, which is the very first one as you enter the room from the main entrance...

Quarterback Brian St. Pierre turned down the Steelers' offer of a three-week minimum contract on their 53-man roster to remain on the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad.

The move will cost St. Pierre thousands of dollars but he believes it's better for his career to remain in Baltimore, his agent said.


We got turned down by St. Pierre! :pity:

The Ravens and Jags are notorious for signing ex-Steelers. More power to 'em. Doesn't seem to be helping them out much...(lol).

I'm sure he realizes there's no future for him in Pittsburgh......so why even bother.
Who knows he could be the Ravens starting QB before the season ends. :grin:

the pats sign more ex steelers than anybody and it seems to help them out tremendously. in 2001, 2002, last years play off, and this years game it seemed they knew every time we were running and where to. and they seem to always find the holes in our zone with their passing game. i think thats why it seems they have our number. they have a constant flow of offensive and defensive players of ours going through there on a yearly basis.

That's no joke...Boller is a bust, Kordell's best days (and they weren't very good to begin with) are behind him, and the other guy is a Steelers scrap heap guy when we were a lot worse off at QB.

That may very well be true, Tony, but I was specifically talking about the Ravens and the Jags. The Ravens are welcome to St. Pierre. We didn't really want him after all, and I highly doubt the Ravens will "have our number" because of him because the Ravens are too dumb. Just my opinion. :smile:
