    Rivers will be way ahead of Smith and it will be evident to the entire world when they see the qb comparisons on Sun. But, Smith is in a bad situation. He's more like David Carr lmao.

    I don’t think Rivers is getting ENOUGH credit. He isn’t just making the “high percentage throw” like Captain Dumpoff used to. :icon_smile:

    Take the Pittsburgh game, for example. He threw deep outs, the fade to Floyd, the beautiful throw to Parker on a crossing-route, even the TD to Gates had to be placed on his right shoulder or it isn’t completed. It’s not like the receivers are wide open.

    Rivers is making this offense go, when Marty lets him play. It really isn’t the guys around him.

    no kidding, with all the hype around the supposed comeback player of the year(dnice) throwing fifteen screens a week why arent these pros realizing rivers is making tough passes all over the field. we havent had a very succesful screen game in quite some time. high percentage passes are seldom seen for the chargers. rivers is raw. give the young buck the credit due.

    Once Rivers continues the throwing action against our next 4 opponents and we spring out to a 7-1 record the first half of the season, he'll get much more credit from the media whores.
