That sounds like a movie title.
"Preparing for two rookies", starring Denzel Washington. Why Denzel? Because he's money, that's why.
As I mentioned a little bit earlier, the Panthers could be without quarterback Jimmy Clausen on Sunday when they take on the Ravens because of a concussion that Clausen suffered yesterday, which means that Baltimore could face Carolina's other rookie signal-caller, Tony Pike.
It's unclear at this point whether Clausen will be medically cleared to play this weekend. Panthers head coach John Fox called Clausen "day-to-day" with the head injury, and if he isn't able to suit up on Sunday, Pike would get the call for Carolina.
As a result, the Ravens will have to be prepared for both Clausen, the second-round pick out of Notre Dame, and Pike, the sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati.
"It's going to be interesting to see what happens," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. "We're going to have to prepare for Tony, absolutely, along with Clausen. Obviously, they've got two good young rookie quarterbacks there. You don't always know what you're going to get with a rookie quarterback. It could be really good, and it might not be so good."
Regardless of which rookie is under center on Sunday, Harbaugh said that the Ravens will make sure to bring pressure and try and make Clausen or Pike uncomfortable.
"We're going to test them, either one of them, and find out what they're made of," Harbaugh said. "I think that's what you have to do to a rookie quarterback. Whichever one it is, we'll find out how ready they are. That's our job."
The Panthers actually have a third rookie quarterback on their roster as well, although he plays more of a wide receiver/running back combo role with Carolina.
That guy is Armanti Edwards, the former Appalachian State star who led his 1-AA school to a shocking win at then-fifth-ranked Michigan three years ago.
The Panthers took Edwards in the third round of this year's draft, and while he's only been active for one game and gotten one carry for seven yards this season, he is a guy the Ravens might have to be prepared for on Sunday.
"Wasn't he the guy that had the win against Michigan?" said Harbaugh when asked about Edwards. "Pretty talented guy. We don't know much about him. That is a wild card. We'll probably have to be ready for some Wildcat-type stuff."
