    Watching him throw time and time again, with it being well documented, I challenge all PatsFans out there to find someone who has an uglier arm action than Phillip Rivers.

    I loathe watching him throw the ball.

    Byron Leftwich. He does a full windup.

    I don't know, but watching LT cry about being pulled on third and goal sure makes me laugh.

    True, but what made me laugh harder was Tirico saying that it's unusual for Complainian to act like that.

    Didn't Rivers and his ugly throws make it to the AFCCG and give the Patriots a great game while basically passing on 1 leg?

    I know the guy appears to be a jerk as a person but I think he is a pretty damn good QB at the same time,the Chargers should have stayed with Brees but Rivers was a pretty good alternative.

    I never said he wasn't a good quarterback... he's just horrible to watch.

    He's like that golf shot you shank and it bounces off a tree straight back into the middle of the fairway.

    Hee! How is it I have never heard him called that before? Love it.


    And on-topic...yeah, it never ceases to surprise me the nifty throws Rivers can get off that wonky-ass looking arm action. :confused:

    Pennington was almost as ugly. It hurt even more that he was so accurate.

    David Carr had the wierdest throwing motion.. I remember when he was drafted by the Texans.. They tried to change his motion by putting up a ladder in front of him and having him try to throw over it.. FREAKING WIERD..
