    I caught part of Troy's commentary and all I can add is that he didn't sound nearly as dismissive as it reads. However Troy and the others all agreed that Rivers is tough as far as playing through injuries goes and how puzzling that toughness appears in light of the finger pointing blame game he so likes to play.

    They also observed that he can get so easily distracted by crowd "input" and/or perceived slights that it's been detrimental to his game at times. Sounds about right to me;)

    I agree with Brown's comments on Rivers technique, but I think the Chargers did the right thing by NOT trying to change it. All too often, coaching staff try to change what worked for a QB throughout his career.... and that player fails. Rivers gets it done and that is all that matters.

    Now, I do think Rivers benefits immensely from having Gates, LT and Chambers. Helps that they have a good defense too, because I don't see him carrying his team like Peyton did when the Colts defense sucked!

    Rivers is overrated, but he does have some intangibles and can read some defenses. He is a team leader and poor techinque is acceptable till they start losing.

    But most overrated is Jay Cutler!

    I would take Cutler over Rivers any day.

    I really believe that having those big targets helps Rivers.

    That kid throws one ugly ball, just putrid.

    I'd take Cutler too-he's way less mouthy. Rivers is a showboater as much as he is a QB and sometimes that gets in his way. He loses focus too easily and gets too caught up in the drama. If I were a Charger fan I'd say just stfu and play. I like Rivers but he's too caught up in that whole environment to ever progress beyond where he's at unless he takes on a whole new attitude.You either want to play football and be the best you can be or you don't.

    I think there are/have probably been a lot of talented players in the same or a similar situation, and I think environment,example,and expectations are part of what separates the Patriots from a lot of other franchises.

    it's actually when the crowd taunted him the past couple years, that he played better

    and what blame game has rivers ever taken part in? the guy is like tom brady in his media interviews

    link?, what did he say that was finger pointing?

    i'd genuinely like to know

    everything i've ever heard out of rivers in media interviews, has been him trying like a madman to say all the right things

    I caught it twice. And he was very complimentary about Rivers' determination and performance last year. He did have questions about Rivers' delivery, but he was over-all impressed, as he said.
    He characterized LT as a "crybaby", but also twice refuted suggestions that LT is not tough, and, in fact, twice asserted that he felt LT was tough. Let's deal with the truth here.

    That was Troy's take. I think he's a gutless, complaining weenie.

    It's not just Troy Brown, Ron Jaworski said the same thing on ESPN Radio in September. Heck, you don't need anyone to tell you, watch the game. They're offensive and defensive lines are getting their ass kicked. Case in point the Dolphins final drive that lasted the last 6 minutes of the game. Come on.

    because he's yet to ever show up in the clutch without ref help, he's pretty much the white michael vick without the canines
