Are there two bigger idiot QBs than Rivers and Cutler? (1 Viewer)

Would a tie eliminate both teams? That would be perfect. I can't stand the fact that one of these two guys will get in the playoffs today.

Rivers is an arrogant punk. The way he taunted Cutler last year and then was being a jerk to Indy fans showed what a tool he is.

The way Cutler continually says he better than Elway and shoots his mouth makes him equally unlikeable.

I can't think of two QBs (ok, possibly Ryan Leaf) who are bigger jerks than these two. I'm sure it kills Rivers that he didn't get in the Pro Bowl and Cutler did.

 
Unfortunately one of them has to win the West. A tie and it would be the Broncos.

The 2 QBs are really hard to root for though. If they both floated out of the stadium on their inflated heads and their back-ups had to play that would be great.

Saying he has a stronger arm is equally arrogant.

He said it once. You said continually? Where did he do that?
 
Cutler never said he was better than Elway. He said that he had a stronger arm than him...once. Once. Not continually. Get over it.

 
I would love to have either one of those guys on the Lions. But if they were on the Lions they would not be running their chops.

 
Cutler never said he was better than Elway. He said that he had a stronger arm than him...once. Once. Not continually. Get over it.
How many times do you have to say something that is arrogant to be considered arrogant?
It was a dumb statement and he admitted it. He hasn't said anything lately from what I've heard. He's been very subdued just saying he and Rivers don't like each other.Just because the press keeps bringing up an old statement to sell their garbage doesn't reflect on Cutler at all. Not to me. I chec k links and sources.Rivers is the jerk. I haven't heard anything from Cutler lately. If he did something show it.
 
I don't think either one is as bad as you are painting them out to be. They are both very confident and competitive. I'd rather have a competitive, confident QB than the opposite.

You were the one that said he continually says he is better than Elway, which is completely false. Care to admit that now?

"Taunting" = arrogant punk? I guess 99.9% of NFL players are punks.And if some fans behind your bench were drunk and taunting you all day, I don't think pointing to the scoreboard at the end of the game and letting those drunken fans know that their team lost is indicative of a "tool".

So would I, but the league is full of competitive, confident QBs. Arrogant and cocky isn't a requirement.For two years, I've seen and heard quotes where announcers, reporters, and opponents have all expressed their dislike for these two, and have heard words like 'punk' thrown around. It would be tough to be a fan of either of these guys.

:lol: Taking one comment out taunt and turning it into "that player is an idiot/tool" is stupid.

What turned mew against Rivers is when he was taunting after a player was hurt. That went too far.
 
Why is everyone asking for links to everything? Rivers and Cutler both have the reputation of being arrogant, cocky punks.

Is this really the first you're hearing this? :P

If you need links to things, you do the research.

 
The stuff being said about Rivers in this thread is ignorant. It just shows that those posting about him and what he supposedly did don't know what they are talking about.

In the Denver game last year, Rivers did not taunt Cutler. He went onto the field to congratulate his defense. Period. And the only reason he was so pumped up to go and congratulate the defense was because Denver players, including Cutler, were taunting the Chargers on the field and taunting their sideline, despite getting blown out. The media, namely ESPN, tried to turn it into more than that, because that's what they do. And apparently most people around here bought it.

Rivers talks a lot on the field but never insults opposing players and never curses, and he shows nothing but class and good character off the field. That is a strange definition of a punk or tool.

I want a link when someone says Rivers taunted an injured player. Without a link, I don't believe it. And from your ignorant posts about Rivers, it seems you are the one who needs to do some research.

To be honest, I never heard the story of Rivers taunting an injured player.. Someone else posted that. My examples were taunting Cutler last year and taunting Colts fans in the playoff game last year. Do you need links to those or do you remember?

As a Charger homer, I hear the Rivers is an "arrogant punk" stuff all the time. It's extremely inaccurate. Rivers is confident and extremely competitive, but he's far from arrogant or cocky. He's a family man who doesn't curse. He's never thrown anyone except himself under the bus after a loss. He makes the "mistake" of engaging with LB's and DL after plays, and sometimes yelling back at fans who taunt him from the bench. Does that make him "arrogant and cocky"?And we're asking for links to Rivers taunting someone who he knew was injured. B/c it would be completely out of character for Rivers to do that.

I said they are both arrogant punks. That's a pretty generic, and widely shared opinion of both of them. I changed my 'better than Elway' to "stronger arm than Elway". What do you need a link to?
 
I don't like either Rivers or Cutler but I still think Culpepper is a bigger tool than both of them.

Looks like the fix is in.

I was just checking out that NFL Fantasy playoff challenge on NFL.com/fantasy and they were showing pictures of players in the playoffs that you could pick... and one of the players they showed was Cutler.

Call your bookie.

How in the world do you know that Rivers never curses?
It's been reported many times that Rivers doesn't drink or curse.
TB: Is it true you don’t curse, you don’t drink alcohol and almost never eat sweets?PR: You got it. I do get a sweet tooth now and then.

Well, if it has been reported, and if he said it, then it MUST be true!!! :ph34r:

Ah hah! He admits it! He does eat the occasional sweet. Also, swearing or not swearing has nothing to do with being an arrogant punk or not.

I'm more concerned with the fact that he was on the field taunting Cutler and jawing with Indy fans. The fact that he kept his language clean doesn't really make much of a difference.

It's well known. He has said so many times, and his teammates have said the same.
Oh, well if the Chargers and Rivers say so... :ph34r:

:thumbdown: Nope. But I'm also not so naive to think I know what is said on the field in the heat of the game. I don't know either way but to say he doesn't with such absolute certainty just makes me laugh. Some of these posts in this thread reek of homerism.

Do you know what the Indy fans were saying to Rivers that led to Rivers' reaction? Or what was being said on the field in Denver? Is responding to trash talk from others "arrogant"?

Perhaps you're laughing at yourself. I'm only pointing out facts that have been reported. If you have anything besides your own imagination that suggests Rivers curses on the field, please share.

Do you know what is said at every single NFL game to players? It happens all the time.Do you see "star players" walking off teh field every game pointing to the scoreboard and taunting fans?

No. You know why? Most NFL players aren't cocky, arrogant punks.

Of course, his taunts did not have cuss words in them, so he can't be too bad.

Broncos hate Rivers' talk show

Monday night mouthiness creates a flap in Denver

By Kevin Acee

UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

December 27, 2007

Philip Rivers got the Denver Broncos bucking mad, and he doesn't really understand why.

“I don't know what the big deal is,” the Chargers quarterback said yesterday.

Two days after the Chargers beat them, the Broncos were still talking about Rivers and his mouth.

“I don't really care for the guy, first of all,” Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey told the Rocky Mountain News yesterday. “He's not a respectable guy right now, because you talk too much trash and do this and that, but you're really not a great player in this league right now. You're surrounded by great players, but you're not a great player.

“I think he needs to understand where he stands in this league – on his team first and foremost. They've got a lot of classy guys on that team. He kind of represents the classless guy on that team. He's definitely lost my respect.”

Even before Monday night's game Bailey told ESPN he didn't like Rivers because of how much Rivers talks.

In fact, someone told Rivers about the ESPN report during the game and he asked Bailey on the field, “Champ, what's up? I thought we were tight.”

Rivers talks almost constantly on the field. He considers it part of the game and loves getting into exchanges with opponents.

“I talked no more in that game than any game in my life,” he said. “ . . . We get after our guys more in practice than in that game.”

Bailey and other Broncos spoke yesterday in response to questions about Rivers being caught on camera yelling toward the Broncos during the fourth quarter, long after he had been taken out of the game in the 23-3 rout.

After a failed fourth-down pass by Jay Cutler, Rivers was shown going a few steps onto the field to greet linebackers Shaun Phillips and Matt Wilhelm. While doing so, he was looking toward the Broncos.

“We get a fourth-down stop,” Rivers recalled yesterday. “I'm not in the game anymore, so I'm way into the defense more than I normally am. . . . Matt Wilhelm and Shaun Phillips, those guys have been jawing the whole game with them. We get a good stop. They are jawing. I'm not anywhere involved. I come out to congratulate them on the stop, and while I'm out there, yeah, there is some eye contact, but I'm saying, 'Atta baby' to Matt Wilhelm and Shaun Phillips. Sure there is eye contact. Maybe there is a smirk. But I am speaking to my guys.”

Cutler could be seen at midfield looking in their direction, and Phillips said yesterday that it was Cutler who started the talking.

“It's funny,” Phillips said. “Philip walked out and told us not to say anything, that we're winning. And Cutler is yelling. . . . Cutler does a lot of talking. I thought it was funny they were talking and losing.”

Phillips said in the fourth quarter Cutler was “just letting us know he wasn't a punk. I respect that. He was letting us know he'd see us next time.”

In the exchange, Wilhelm was seen waving good-bye to the Broncos, and Phillips was pointing at the scoreboard.

But there was immediate reaction from the television commentators and in the ensuing days from fans about how the behavior was unbecoming for Rivers.

Rivers has heard the talk for more than a year that he gets too riled up during games. He has long maintained it's simply how he plays and that it even helps him.

“I'm not going to change,” he said. “ . . . I'm not saying I'm trying to be the guy who goes nuts and acts crazy. That's not who I am. But the thing is there are no bad intentions. It's all in fun.”

Other Chargers defended Rivers.

“What they've got to understand is Philip is a football player,” tight end Antonio Gates said. “If they put him in that category it wouldn't be a problem. But since he's a quarterback, quarterbacks stereotypically shouldn't say or do or act a certain kind of way on the field.

“That's the thing that's not known about him. We know him as a person. He does it in the locker room, in practice, on the field. He plays the game with his heart. That's why he's that way.”

Rivers also explained yesterday another time he was caught talking by ESPN's cameras on Monday. Rivers said after a play in which Broncos linebacker Jamie Winborn had gotten past fullback Andrew Pinnock, Winborn came near the Chargers sideline and yelled, “Where's Lo Neal?”

Rivers said he yelled back, “The ball is over there,” and then yelled to Winborn, “You're glad he ain't playing.”

Cutler said yesterday the Broncos had discussed Rivers' antics.

“It's an unfortunate situation,” he said. “They talk a lot of stuff. It got heated between the two teams. Personally, I don't think the teams like each other, which is fine. It's just going to add to it later next year and the year after that. It should be exciting.”

Of all the teams to question what Rivers has done, Denver seems an odd antagonist.

In four career starts against the Broncos, Rivers has a 119.8 passer rating, and the Chargers have won all four by an average of 39-13. In those games, he has completed 69.6 of his passes for 960 yards and seven touchdowns with two interceptions.

“I understand some of the frustration is they've lost four in a row to this team,” Rivers said. “People don't like losing four in a row.”

Rivers is real

Kevin Acee

December 27, 2007

So many e-mails, so many questions in the mailbag. I thought I'd just give my take on the hyper QB here.

I cannot stress enough how great a guy Philip Rivers is. I say that not because he makes my job easier and more enjoyable. I say it because it is the truth.

He is not a poor sport or in any way the ugly trash talker some are portraying.

I defend him (if that's what you want to call it) because I know that he's real. He is who he is. And it is what makes him who he is -- on the field, in the locker room, at practice. He just loves the game and plays it all out.

Nope, he has not yet won a playoff game. (He's 0-1 in the postseason.) But after 31 regular-season starts, he has won 24 times. He has an 86.8 passer rating and has thrown 41 touchdown passes to 24 interceptions in those 31 starts.

Sure, as Champ Bailey noted, he is surrounded by great players. Rivers is fortunate to have LT, Antonio Gates and now Chris Chambers. But Rivers is also a very good quarterback. He has struggled this year. He is not a Pro Bowler. But he makes throws and decisions that reveal he is a fine QB. And he is tougher than many.

As for how Rivers acts on the field, his talking and gesturing is part of his play. It always has been. I'd imagine it always will be.

The comment I hear most often is that Rivers should stop talking and concentrate on playing better. Do people who say that think he is not spending 80 hours a week working on being better? Do they think if he stopped yapping, he'd automatically be better. I argue that he might be worse.

I used to cover a guy named Jim Edmonds, who had something of the opposite "problem" as Rivers. His teammates and Angels management wondered aloud again and again how good a player Edmonds would be if he just tried harder, was more passionate about the game. Thing was, Edmonds was the most exciting and most clutch baseball player I ever covered on a daily basis. When the rest of the Angels were collapsing in September of 1998, he was batting something like .380. His argument (and mine) was that if he were a different guy, he wouldn't be as good a player.

I'm not saying everything Rivers says or does is brilliant or even advised.

But honestly, if Rivers were a linebacker, no one would even notice. As he said yesterday, if he were to give me a list of all the things that were said on the field Monday night by every player, "It would be longer than the Mitchell Report."

He does not talk about people's mom's or wives. He doesn't curse.

"To think of what is said on the field that is way worse than anything out of my mouth is unimaginable," Rivers said.

He has all the respect in the world for Champ Bailey.

"You don't go after the guy," Rivers said.

But he loves to have fun and considers that fun part of the game. When he does complete a pass on Bailey, if Bailey looks at him, Rivers said he will grin "like, 'Hey we got you.' It's always been a very respectful communication between me and him."

He noted that maybe Bailey hasn't taken it that way.

Rivers was honestly surprised by the hubbub over what happened Monday.

He said he took no offense to what anyone said to him or his teammates. Recalling Jamie Winborn hollering about Lorenzo Neal on Monday, Rivers said, "So what? I would have done that too. It's fun."

I promise you he is like that pretty much every moment of the day. Quite a few times I have gotten irritated at him for interrupting an interview by walking by and making fun of me or his teammate that I'm trying to talk to.

The reasons this is an issue is because ESPN had about a million cameras at that game and the game was a blowout and Rivers was on the sideline. And because he is a quarterback, people think he shouldn't act this way.

As he reminded me last night of his high school career, "I used to be a linebacker."
Another interesting link:Cutler is a punk?

By Kevin Acee

Posted: 12:26 p.m. Wednesday December 24, 2008

During my turn guest-hosting yesterday on XX 1090, Matt Wilhelm came on the show, and I suggested at the start of the interview, "Jay Cutler is a punk, isn't he?"

I was joking. I mean, I think Jay Cutler is arrogant and off-putting, but I was totally joking and never expected a response. I was saying it for a laugh. I had suggested the same thing in an earlier interview with Clinton Hart.

But Wilhelm, who is a great interview, took my suggestion and ran.

"He is a punk," Wilhelm said. "I'm just not a huge fan of his."

Wilhelm compared Philip Rivers and Jay Cutler, saying both were leaders and wanted to win badly.

"But Jay Cutler," Wilhelm said, "he and Tony Gonzalez are the biggest crybabies in the league."

I already knew the story, but I asked Wilhelm again about he, Shaun Phillips and Rivers taunting Cutler from the sideline in last year's Dec. 24 game against the Broncos.

"Jay Cutler, being the guy that he is, made some shrewd comments to SP and myself," Wilhelm recalled of the in-game dialogue. "Brandon Marshall was making comments throughout the game. All these comments are being made, and they're not making plays. Yet they're the ones going home, and we're preparing for our playoff game. It was essentially a wave to him good-bye and hopefully have a great offseason."

What did Cutler say?

"If I could, I would say them," Wilhelm said. "But they're unfit for ... radio. They're something that probably only happens on the football field or when you're extremely, extremely angry at someone."

Which prompted me to bring up the point that Rivers never curses.

"Philip Rivers is not only one of the best football players I've ever met in my entire life. He is one of the best people off the field," Wilhelm said. "... He'a family man. He's in church every sunday. That's it. That's all you really get is golly and darn. Never a swear word. Never anything rude and crude as I mentioned have been said by one person. It never comes out of Philip's mouth.

"The competitive nature in Philip is to the utmost degree. He wants to win so bad and maybe do a little showboating while he's at it."
 
Do you know what the Indy fans were saying to Rivers that led to Rivers' reaction? Or what was being said on the field in Denver?
Yep, poor, innocent Phillip Rivers. Every time he is screaming or yelling at an opponent, it is because he was baited into by those meanies on the other team. :unsure:
 
War of words continues to rage on between AFC West rivals

Kevin Acee (Contact)

Wednesday, December 24, 2008

While Shaun Phillips declared himself off-limits for interviews and Philip Rivers remained, as always, above the fray, one member of the Goodbyegate trio acknowledged what many other Chargers are thinking.

“There is no love lost in this locker room for Jay Cutler,” linebacker Matt Wilhelm said of the Denver Broncos quarterback.

That is not exactly news. Ever since last Christmas Eve's game at Qualcomm Stadium, when in the final minutes Wilhelm, Phillips and Rivers were caught by ESPN taunting Cutler from the sideline, there has been a steady flow of words both ways between the AFC West rivals.

Most of that talk has been from Cutler and his teammates about their disdain of Rivers. Asked Wednesday if, in the holiday spirit, he wanted to extend an olive branch to Rivers, Cutler declined.

“Are you asking me to retract my statements? No, I'm not going to,” Cutler said. “He's playing really well right now. But what happened has happened and I haven't forgotten it. I don't think a lot of guys on this team have forgotten it. So it is what it is.”

Wilhelm, among others, finds it preposterous that Cutler has said again and again he doesn't like the way Rivers acts on the field. According to Chargers players then and now, it was trash talking and gestures by Cutler last year that precipitated Wilhelm and Phillips waving goodbye to Cutler and Rivers yelling it in Cutler's direction.

“Jay Cutler, being the guy that he is, made some shrewd comments to SP and myself,” Wilhelm recalled of the in-game dialogue. “Brandon Marshall was making comments throughout the game. All these comments are being made, and they're not making plays. Yet they're the ones going home, and we're preparing for our playoff game. It was essentially a wave to him goodbye and hopefully have a great offseason.”

What did Cutler say?

“If I could, I would say them,” Wilhelm said. “But they're unfit for radio. They're something that probably only happens on the football field or when you're extremely, extremely angry at someone.”

Said Wilhelm: “He is a punk. I'm just not a huge fan of his.”

Rivers was asked Wednesday if there remained any problem between he and Cutler.

“There really isn't,” he said. “It got a lot of attention a year ago. There's nothing there. I know Jay feels the same way – we're not playing each other. We're trying to help our teams advance to the playoffs.”

Sigh. Chargers are running their mouths (again). "Cutler is a punk."

I say they should do it on the field. But I do hope they get to wave goodbye to the Broncos again.

"The competitive nature in Philip is to the utmost degree. He wants to win so bad and maybe do a little showboating while he's at it."
 
Rivers talks a lot on the field but never insults opposing players and never curses, and he shows nothing but class and good character off the field. That is a strange definition of a punk or tool.
How in the world do you know that Rivers never curses?
It's well known. He has said so many times, and his teammates have said the same.
Oh, well if the Chargers and Rivers say so... :unsure:
You have links suggesting Rivers curses?
:shrug: Nope. But I'm also not so naive to think I know what is said on the field in the heat of the game. I don't know either way but to say he doesn't with such absolute certainty just makes me laugh. Some of these posts in this thread reek of homerism.
Perhaps you're laughing at yourself. I'm only pointing out facts that have been reported. If you have anything besides your own imagination that suggests Rivers curses on the field, please share.
I'm laughing at the notion that anyone in this thread knows for a fact that that Rivers or anyone else on the filed "never" curses or insults another player. First of all, who cares if he does or doesn't? I'm pretty sure there are a slew of curse words and insults that are said in any game. I already said I don't know if he does or doesn't. I also don't care. Second, who cares if either guy talks if he is producing? Sure it might be annoying but if he is producing, who cares?
 
"Jay Cutler, being the guy that he is, made some shrewd comments to SP and myself," Wilhelm recalled of the in-game dialogue. "Brandon Marshall was making comments throughout the game. All these comments are being made, and they're not making plays. Yet they're the ones going home, and we're preparing for our playoff game. It was essentially a wave to him good-bye and hopefully have a great offseason."

What did Cutler say?

"If I could, I would say them," Wilhelm said. "But they're unfit for ... radio. They're something that probably only happens on the football field or when you're extremely, extremely angry at someone."

Which prompted me to bring up the point that Rivers never curses.

"Philip Rivers is not only one of the best football players I've ever met in my entire life. He is one of the best people off the field," Wilhelm said. "... He'a family man. He's in church every sunday. That's it. That's all you really get is golly and darn. Never a swear word. Never anything rude and crude as I mentioned have been said by one person. It never comes out of Philip's mouth.

"The competitive nature in Philip is to the utmost degree. He wants to win so bad and maybe do a little showboating while he's at it."
Another quote about Rivers being a church going family man who never curses. Still waiting for evidence from those arguing that River does indeed curse.
