Nice find. Reppen ya! To funny to see how these "experts" flip flop. Lame.boltssbbound said:Fock Jeffri Chadiha.
From earlier this offseason:
Forget These Five
It's not too early to discount some overhyped teams.
4. San Diego: Another AFC West team that hasn't done much to improve this offseason. I won't believe that Philip Rivers is a better quarterback than Drew Brees until I see him play in a Pro Bowl. I also can't understand how a team so desperate for a reliable receiver to take some pressure off Keenan McCardell pulls off such a weak trade. The Chargers ended up with Rashaun Woods, a first-round bust with the 49ers who couldn't find a role on that offensively challenged team. Tight end Antonio Gates is a great player, but he's not going to keep the passing game from being San Diego's downfall.
Great read, thanks for posting the article Teutonic13.Before I continue, know this: I was a big fan of Rivers' predecessor, Drew Brees, and I thought San Diego general manager A.J. Smith made a huge mistake by letting Brees leave in free agency this offseason. Brees is smart, tough and had the confidence of his teammates after leading them to 20 wins over the last two years. As Chargers left tackle Roman Oben says, "Drew is the kind of guy that everybody roots for because he's barely 6 feet tall and he's had to prove a lot of people wrong." I thought there was no way the Chargers could take a step forward with that kind of quarterback playing in New Orleans these days.
I can see that error in judgment now.
I read the article and I saw that. But switching your position so drastically after a guy throws 11 passes suggests you don't know what the phock you are talking about.Ride The Lightning said:If you read the article he admits he was wrong about Rivers.
