I’ve unfortunately watched too many Rivers games living in LA and I’ve said more than enough on how he’s been trash throughout his career.
I’ll sum it for everybody. Chargers offense starts off slow until they start losing. During this time, you’ll see Rivers freaking out at the LOS kicking and stomping his feet trying to get the C to snap the ball because Rivers is not paying attention to the game clock as it’s running down. He’s always good for a couple angry spikes after after a penalty is called for delay of game or they take a time out. Once the game is getting out of hand, that’s when Rivers goes in garbage time mode and pads his stats. Chargers are somehow within reach now, but Rivers fools fans thinking they have a chance and throws the game sealing INT/incomplete pass. He usually yells at someone for his mistakes. Rinse and repeat.
I'd like to see it and watch Indy explode.
This is the Philip Rivers experience to a T.
For whatever reason, his laughably bad play is always attributed to “the Chargers” like there’s some supernatural force causing him to suck. The guy is a classic loser like Shooter McGavin going for a gold jacket. It was hilarious last year when he passive aggressively suggested to the media that you could flip him and Brady and he would win all the head to head games. That was in reference to being like 0-8 vs Brady and was quickly followed by another amateur hour playoff performance where he showed once again how much Charger suckage is the direct result of his suckage.
Exactly. Rivers is more comfortable in a losing situation so the come back takes the blame off of him as the media has blindly done. Some players like him that have a losers mentality do not like having the pressure of keeping any lead.
But Edelman doesn't wear green and white and never would wear green and white. No one with his strength of character ever does. It's a case of mutual exclusion -- suckage abhors competence and dedication.
I like Teddy ... I think Josh could utilize his strengths and other teams have not.
To me its Brady or we go with Stidham/Rookie QB
If we go FA for QB, I wouldn't mind Teddy Bridgewater but someone will pay him $20m+
Nick Foles trade would be awesome
Are any of Rivers children tall enough to be in that 5’5 range yet?
They’ll fit right in with our WR group.
i think we're getting ahead of ourselves by speculating on Brady's departure and by assuming that BB et al can use the Draft and Free Agency to make the Patriots a "contender."
However, at the end of the day, I don't think Brady is going anywhere and, for the rest, "in BB I trust.
Do you really think he will go for a Veteran Deal??
I misrepresented his Injury History and agree he has remained injury free... but still do not care for bringing in a 39 year old AB to Foxboro..
I hope Brady leaves. I don't want Rivers
Just saw odds that list Rivers as even money (+100) to go to Tampa Bay, with Indy next in line. I believe NE was +1600.
Watching Rivers play for the Pats would be like listing to this all day long.
There's a Wiki page (and perhaps an anthropology course) to be created from your posts on this subject over the years: The Laws of Nature as Related to the New York Jets.
The above being one of them:
#46: No individual with strength of character can be a member of the New York Jets, and no New York Jet can have, or develop, strength of character.
Yeah, this just makes too much sense. Rivers being who he is, he may be angling for 3-4 years as a backup QB (best job in sports) for any Florida team that will have him and that has a developing young starter, making a cool $6-8M a year, in an income tax free state, hanging out with family and fading into the sunset.
