I thought I'd share this with you all. I think he's way off on this. I'm an NCSU alumn and watched Rivers for 4 years. He's one of the smartest quarterbacks that I've seen at the collegiate level. He also has a quick release and can sense the defense in the pocket. He will find a way to win.

It's never a good idea to try to develop an inexperienced, weak-armed quarterback with a receiving corps led by a 36-year-old, well-past-his-prime receiver not named Jerry Rice. Keenan McCardell had a great season a year ago -- 70 receptions and a career-high nine touchdowns. He can't duplicate that year. Not at 36. And not with Rivers flinging floaters with his sidearm delivery. The Chargers don't have a reliable receiver to stretch the defense and provide all-world tight end Antonio Gates plenty of room to operate underneath. Rivers' weak arm and San Diego's mediocre receiving corps are going to clog running lanes for LaDainian Tomlinson.
