"2004 draft class: Rivers will always be compared to Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger. Manning was the No. 1 pick, Rivers was the No. 4 pick and Roethlisberger was the No. 11 pick in the 2004 draft. Of course, Manning and Rivers were the key figures in a draft-day trade between the Giants and the Chargers."

Well if their defense last friday was any indication, they are going to suck total cock this year so I wouldn't worry about it either way.

^^^ Defense will be fine. Not great, but good enough, especially when Merriman comes back. The Saints offense is just that good.

Chargers are looking at a 12-4 or 13-3 record this year. Hopefully they actually do something in the playoffs this time around.

Quote :
"...If anything, division games are less demanding in one sense. Less homework.

“One thing I can always do in division games: I can almost draw up the defensive (player) numbers and who they are before we get the scouting report,” said quarterback Philip Rivers. “(Last) Monday, though, I was on Arizonacardinals.com.”

As one of the Chargers who’s never lost to the Raiders, Rivers admits that maintaining that status has become “kind of a big deal,” even allowing that there is a genuine rivalry with Oakland. But he also said that there’s a similar sense to games between the Chargers and other AFC teams they’ve faced often in the regular season and postseason, most notably the New England Patriots , Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. All of whom are on the Chargers schedule between now and December.

However, there’s no comparing the rivalry between any two NFL teams to the natural and deep-seeded friction that professional players felt for their geographical enemies in high school and college.

“If you play anything at N.C. State, the feelings you have for Carolina are instantaneous,” said Rivers, who played for the Wolfpack. “You step onto the (Raleigh) campus for the first time and you want to beat the Tar Heels.”..."

You just know Rivers has been talking mad shit to Cam Thomas ever since the shit hit the fan in Chapel Hill.

From Peter King's MVP Watch:
Quote :
"1. Philip Rivers, QB, San Diego. I'm stunned to have moved him to first overall, jumping over Brady and Manning. The Chargers are 4-5, and how can the MVP come from a 4-5 team, particularly when his competition has winning records. It's because Rivers has been magnificent, particularly in light of winning a tough road game the Chargers had to have without any of his three favorite receivers from 2009 -- and he still threw four touchdown passes and stayed on pace to shatter the all-time yardage record for a season."

Rivers is having an amazing season, but somehow he'll still get snubbed for the Pro Bowl this year as Manning, Brady, and Dirty Sanchez will all get selected.

King loves him some Rivers and Chargers.

They've got a great chance at getting back atop the AFC West in the next month. Playing all three of their conference teams and most of those games at home. Hopefully getting back a healthy Gates and Jackson (will be interesting to see how Jackson plays).

State fans could use a little success in some form.

The assclowns on 99.9 the fan (Joe Ovies and Adam Gold) were basically blowing Michael Vick yesterday on the air. It was driving me insane. First they said that he should be NFL MVP (over Payton Manning who has done far more with less). Then the fucknuts actually said that he was a more talented QB than PRiv. I about lost my shit driving home.

Aaron Rodgers and Big Ben are probably now permanently ahead of Rivers in "best QBs currently in the NFL" conversation.

Ben is now in his 3rd Super Bowl and writers have been patiently waiting for Rodgers to do something in the playoffs to validate him...they've been sucking him off during the pre-season/regular season for the past couple years already.

Rivers has to do something in the playoffs soon (fuck...at least get back to the playoffs).

yes, I'm sure every writer thinks roflberger is a much better QB than Rivers. they certainly don't recognize the fact that he's a serviceable QB who is surrounded by a dominant defense and an offensive line that allows them to be a run-first team.

eli manning won a super bowl for fuck's sake. rex fucking grossman made it to a super bowl.

Rivers does need to do something in the playoffs. Sucks that something shitty and out of his control seems to happen each season to derail his chances (Merriman hurt, LT hurt, horrible ST, etc). That pick he threw a couple seasons ago was all on him though.

Is Rivers starting for the AFC this weekend or is Manning? Or did both of them fake an injury like most seasons.

Yeah..."permanently" was probably the incorrect word. If Rivers can get that first Super Bowl under his belt, he'll be fine.

And I'm not the biggest Big Ben fan...but he steps up when he needs to. Those two third down throws in that last drive were huge. He had a shitty game statistically, but he still wins games. Rivers needs to get to a Super Bowl.

Most of the analysts still realize that Rivers is a better QB better than Ben, whether he wins this year or not.

Now Rodgers, I'm not even sure myself. I've been predicting Rivers and Rodgers would be the next generation's Brady and Manning and competing for MVP's since Rodgers' first season starting.

There's a difference between "greater" and "better." Terry Bradshaw is "greater" than Dan Marino, hell he's probably greater than Peyton Manning (unless manning wins another/breaks all of Favres records), but he wasn't really that good.

Ben had a 35.5 QB rating yesterday. That game was ugly for him. I think if you switch out Rivers and Big Ben, Rivers could do just as well, probably better than Ben, in Pittsburgh.

Rivers has had his chances. That 2006 team should've won it all, and last years team was no slouch, either. He'll get his due props when he gets a ring, but for now he's just putting up crazy stats which will ensure that he's in the record books. 3 straight seasons of 100+ passer rating is nothing to sneeze about.

The Chargers will bounce back next year, or the following. When they move to LA in 2012, they will spend big money in free-agency necessary to ensure that they make a big splash in their new home

I used to have a list of 10 stupid things they did vs. the pats in that 2006 game, where if they hadn't done even one of those things they would have won them.

Don't know where it is now, but it included things like knocking down Brady's 4th down throw instead of intercepting (and then fumbling) it.

was that the game where the tipped/uncaught pass became an interception? that was entirely the receivers fault.

Rivers didn't play a great game that year I don't think, but he did easily enough to win and LT was having the best RB season in recent memory

Found the article, it's actually gone now but someone pasted it on a broncos message board.

Quote :
"Ten reasons the Chargers blew it
Kevin Hench / FOXSports.com

Like a pregnant woman avoiding sushi, Chargers fans should read no further.

Some games that are largely dominated by the team that ends up losing can be explained by one or two huge plays. But not San Diego's 24-21 loss to New England on Sunday. The Bolts needed a combination of 10 awful plays and inexcusable coaching decisions to give this game away.
In chronological order, here are the Terrible 10:


1. Clinton Hart, butterfingers
On third down of the Patriots' second possession in the shadow of their own goalposts, Tom Brady tried to hit Reche Caldwell on a crossing pattern, but his pass was tipped at the line by blitzing safety Marlon McRee (more on him later). The wobbling ball was then barely tipped by Caldwell and caromed off Quentin Jammer's helmet straight up in the air. Like pillow feathers fluttering to earth, the ball came straight down, floating gently right into safety Clinton Hart's breadbasket. But gripped by a moment of complete stupidity, Hart leapt unnecessarily to meet the ball and somehow managed to dislodge it from himself. Even had Hart been brought down right away after securing the interception, he would have been at the New England 28. After the punt and return, San Diego had the ball at midfield, from whence they failed to score, in part because of ...


2. Eric Parker, butterfingers
Having already been charged with a drop on the Chargers' first possession — on what may have in fact been a fumble — Eric Parker's nightmare day continued on the Bolts' second possession. On 2nd-and-10 from the 50, Philip Rivers zipped a short pass right to Parker at the 45 with two defenders playing four yards off him. Worst case scenario, assuming Parker didn't shed a tackler, the Bolts would have been looking at 3rd-and-3. But the ball slid right through Parker's hands, leading to an incomplete on 3rd-and-10 and another Mike Scifres punt.


3. Eric Parker, feet don't fail me ... d'oh!
On their third possession, the Chargers marched to the New England 29, where, of course, it was time to get cute. Eschewing league MVP LaDainian Tomlinson and Pro Bowl QB Philip Rivers, the Bolts ran an end around with their man Parker. Though the Patriots got good penetration, Rivers sealed linebacker Rosevelt Colvin with a courageous block. But it was to no avail because Parker lost his footing on the newly sodded patch of the field and fell down untouched for a seven-yard loss. A six-yard run by Tomlinson and an incomplete brought us to ...


4. 4th-and-11 on the 30
This was bizarre. First Schottenheimer burned a timeout to talk it over. It's 4th-and-11 on your opponent's 30 on a bright sunny day and you have a Pro Bowl kicker who made eight of 10 kicks beyond 40. What's to discuss? Perhaps overly sensitive to criticism of his conservative game management, Schottenheimer decided to go for it. Rivers got sacked, fumbled and the Patriots recovered. Hmmm, I wonder if those three points might have come in handy.


5. 2nd-and-17
The Patriots trailed 14-3 with a minute left before halftime when a holding penalty wiped out a 15-yard Kevin Faulk run, bringing up 2nd-and-17 on their own 35. New England was reeling. After sputtering early, the Bolts had taken complete control of the game and Tomlinson and Michael Turner had both found paydirt in what was looking very much like a possible blowout. But the Chargers rushed four, got no pressure and right corner Antonio Cromartie backed off Jabar Gaffney, giving him precisely the 17 yards he needed for a first down. The Patriots had a pulse, which would only get stronger when they cashed in for six on a Brady-to-Gaffney pass 49 seconds later to make it 14-10 at halftime.


6. Vincent Jackson, butterfingers
On their first possession of the second half after forcing a three-and-out from the Pats, the Chargers were facing 3rd-and-8 from their own 36 when Rivers delivered a laser to a wide-open Vincent Jackson at the New England 42. Like his teammate Hart in the first quarter, Jackson leapt unnecessarily and basically confounded himself, dropping a perfectly thrown ball. Instead of a 22-yard gain and a first down, the Bolts were forced to punt. (Jackson would later fail to dot the I in the back of the end zone on Rivers' most beautiful throw of the day, costing the Chargers six.)


7. Eric Parker, butterfingers/bonehead
The Chargers still led 14-10 in the third quarter and looked to be getting the ball back with good field position when Parker struck again. First he muffed the punt at his own 35, but he seemed to catch a break when the ball settled just to his left for an easy cover-up. But instead of merely falling on the football, Parker tried to pick it up and advance it. He never got the chance. Antwain Spann drilled him, the ball squirted free again and the Patriots' David Thomas recovered at the 31, setting up a New England field goal ... made all the easier by ...


8. Drayton Florence, brain freeze
Shaun Phillips sacked Brady on 3rd-and-13 and despite a propitious bounce of the ensuing fumble right into left tackle Matt Light's arms, the Patriots were still looking at a 52-yard field goal. Enter Florence. After the play was over, right in front of the line judge, Florence ran up to Daniel Graham and head-butted him in the facemask. Fifteen yards, first down. Stephen Gostkowski would end up converting a much-easier 34-yarder. Chargers 14, Patriots 13.


9. Marlon McRee taketh, then giveth back
The Chargers led 21-13 with six minutes left and the Patriots facing 4th-and-5. McRee had played fairly brilliantly for the first 54 minutes of the game. Then came the nightmare. After bobbling Brady's fourth-down pass — oh, how Charger Nation wishes he had just dropped it — McRee hauled in the pick that looked to have buried the Pats. But as he began to return the interception, Troy Brown reached in and stripped him. Reche Caldwell dived on the loose ball and the Pats were resuscitated. Had McRee just knocked the ball down or taken a knee upon securing it, the Bolts would almost certainly have won.


10. Mentally challenged challenge
Desperately wanting something not to be true is not sufficient grounds for squandering a timeout and challenging a play that is not going to be overturned. McRee clearly gained control of the ball and clearly fumbled it before hitting the ground. With the challenge, Schottenheimer squandered a timeout that sure would have come in handy as his team tried to even the score with 1:05 left and no timeouts. With Antonio Gates failing to get out of bounds early in the drive and the team looking a little unsteady in its one-minute drill, the best San Diego could do was an ill-fated 54-yard attempt by Kaeding.
