Brian St. Pierre's greatest hits (long version)
By Pat Yasinskas
In light of John Fox’s decision to start quarterback Brian St. Pierre, a stay-at-home dad until just about a week ago, I decided to do some exhaustive research.
It took hours, but I came up with a “greatest hits’’ summary of St. Pierre’s stellar NFL career. Here it is.
- While with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2004, St. Pierre ran for a first down on a naked bootleg against Buffalo. He also attempted one pass. It was incomplete. He took four knees at the end of the game to run out the clock.
- The date was actually Jan. 3, 2010, but it was the final game of the 2009 regular season. Playing for the Arizona Cardinals against the Green Bay Packers, St. Pierre had the game of his life. He completed his first NFL pass and also threw his first career touchdown (to Larry Fitzgerald). For the day, St. Pierre completed two of four passes with an interception.
