  1. Roughly every four years

  2. I'm here way too frequently.

  3. He is not great on the run, and most of the time does not run. That said he did lead the league in passer rating and bested Manning in yards, tds, and ratings. He was under some severe pressure Sat Night, alot of those throw aways were broken screens though. Throwing cross body on the run agains the Colts secondary is not a recipe to win the game. Most pocket type Qbs are not great on the run.
  4. I know it's a bit of a longshot, but if Rivers plays (with a torn acl) and the Chargers win, can this thread be locked forever?
  5. He was 18th in QB rating this regular season, at 82.4, just behind Derek Anderson at 82.5. Last season, he was 8th, at 92.0. He definitely regressed statistically this season, as discussed throughout the thread. But if one is going to use QB rating, he has already shown he can be very good for an entire season. I believe last season was a better representation of his ability than this season, and I think he'll be better next year.He will improve from this year's experience, and will have another offseason to work with the coaching staff and should be more comfortable in Norv's variation of

  7. Rivers has the highest career QB rating in Chargers history -- higher than Fouts, higher than Brees, higher than Humphries, higher than Hadl . . .Sush, facts are not welcome when speaking of Rivers, just opinions and hate please.when stats start saying things like 'Rivers is a better QB than Fouts' it's time to stop reading them and simply watch the action on the field with ones own eyes.By all means, keep the opinions rolling. What did your eyes tell you yesterday? If you had never seen a football game in your life and watched the "Terrible" Rivers, what would you think? How about the weekend

  9. Volek threw a 2 yrd pass to Nanee that went for 40 yards. He didn't pass the ball down field and only had 4 throws total. Please dont compare the two. Rivers is damn good, someday he will start to get the credit, 27-8 now.
  10. And SD really can't afford to keep Turner around one more year for $5mil??? I don't get why so many people say you can't franchise that guy.Its closer to 10 Million. And if they want to extend Merriman, Rivers, Igor, Castillo, etc, they aren't going to spend 1/3 of their cap space on a backup RB. No chance. M Turner is gone come March.
  11. Ton of heart by Rivers, playing hurt and leading that comeback on the road against a rough team fighting for their playoff lives. Awesome really...
  12. Whoever threw less interceptions in the most recent week's games. So this week its Rivers.The actual correct answer is Roethlisberger.But last year (Bens second as starter) people were hating him, calling him Big Bust and what not. Sometimes people are quick to write off young QBs, as I believe is the case here with Rivers.Roethlisberger had a few things wrong with him physically last year. Rivers has no such excuse, and Eli much less so than Roethlisberger last year.Also, I can't recall any QB worth their salt yelling at a crowd to shut up when they were booing him. This latest example of

  14. He was more accurate yesterday which is imperative. However his throws are still pretty ugly, I don't think he threw a tight spiral at any point yesterday, and on the first Gates TD he didn't get it out there far enough - Gates had to actually wait for the ball. If coverage is average to good yesterday I think we're having a continuation of the Rivers sucks conversation. I was greatly amused (for those who listened to the audio) at Randy Cross's constant comments about Rivers's strong arm and laser beam throws - does this guy actually watch the games/players?Worst of all was when Rivers tur
  15. He played very well yesterday, it was really nice to see. The Oline gave him a pocket to pass in which helped quite a bit. He also did a nice job hitting the open guys, not out thinking things. Also helps when guys like VJax hang on to the ball and keep drives going. All and all a nice game to build on, now we shall see if he can do again this weekend in a hostile road environment like KC.
