I suppose if you want to believe that Christs disciples fought off the Roman gaurds at the enterance and then moved the massive stone to retrieve him you are free to believe so.
That there would have been any Roman guards at the tomb of such an unimportant figure (as Pilate obviously views him) is a most implausible story. These "guards" were undoubtedly created so that Christians could make the argument you are making.
EDIT: Seems I'm wrong:
Meanwhile, the superstitious Temple guards had dropped their swords and run away, helter-skelter, not just because of the violent earthquake, but because they thought they had just seen a hovering angel in mostly snow-white raiment, and a reformed prostitute, and a very happy middle-aged virgin – which were three marvels you almost never saw in Israel, in those days.
