The Chargers are soon to get their fill of Philip Rivers.


The third-year pro has been thrust into the starting role as the team decided to let veteran Drew Brees exit as an unrestricted free agent. Brees landed with the Saints, so the Chargers march on with Rivers.

That's fine, but don't forget that the Chargers have missed the postseason in nine of the past 10 years and they will be breaking in a quarterback who has fewer touchdown passes than his running back, LaDainian Tomlinson.
Oh man, thats kinda harsh.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I really like Philip...but repeating over and over again that "this is not a setback" is getting old...just show them on the field at the upcoming OCS and mini camp...otherwise just tell those media jackoff's "Watch me play and judge for yourself"...:tounge:

I agree... He needs to bring it, not sing it. But until camp, he can only act like an opera goon.:lol

I also am not picking on you, every article about PR talks about the setback. Its gettin old, but its the offseason news...

It wasn't you...but the funny thing is, when I said (typed) "Then STFU and Play", I was speaking "rhetorically" to Philip...not you...:lol

If you were in his position and everyone was doubting you, you'd say the same. Specially now that Brees went on Best Damn and said that the team is worse off with out him and that they made a mistake not signing him! If I were Rivers I would be heated...it's time to stop being so nice, and just say screw Brees and not "this is not a setback" crap. I'm not opposed to a little rivalry or conflict. It makes the game more exciting, and it would show leadership from PR! I'm tired of the political correctness, Brees chose money over the team and now he's bad mouthing us, screw him and his shoulder! I hope he enjoys his sub .500 remainder of his career. I wouldn't be surprised if Brees never smells the playoffs again! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!:icon_evil: :icon_eek: :icon_evil:

Philip has the heart of a champion and he has taken it as a personal insult that Brees takes the money and runs and then on the way out says "I don't think you all can win without me".

Philip is right, its not a set back but a leap forward.

Those that do not believe will see.

The Era of the 6'5 quarterback has begun....:yes:
