    Philip Rivers is more HOF worthy than Eli. Obviously.

    Six teams are on pace to surrender fewer than 25 sacks. That’s New Orleans (18), Indianapolis (20), Pittsburgh (21), Kansas City (21), New England (23), and the Chargers (24). It’s noteworthy that four of those have older quarterbacks — Brees, Rivers, Brady and Roth - LA Times

    Five straight games with 120+ yards and a TD ...

    The Rams will be providing thousands of complimentary tickets to Monday night's game - now at the Coliseum - to first responders and those affected by the communities recent tragedies.

    This is a fact. But his last name and being a passenger on two Super Bowl trains, plus being handed MVPs due again to his last name, those things will get him in because the media loves them some Manning.

    This is obviously a no-brainer...yet I remember seeing the silly "but...but...he has rings!" argument in here, more than once... :eek:

    So how is Rivers HOF worthy again?? Because he's transformed the QB position? Because he's been durable? Is it just in comparison to Eli?

    Rivers was a god at qb as far as I was concerned. He was a great leader. He was durable as ****. He threw accurate passes with a quick release and did so with zero protection. The only one I've seen do better with zero protection was Ben Rothlisberger.

    Rivers, to me, was the Evander Holyfield of quarterbacks. I didn't respect him much in his first two seasons as a starter when the team was winning a lot of games. I only came to see him as a great quarterback when we started losing. What he could do under a poor coach and behind third, fourth, and fifth string linemen was amazing. Who was that tall dude at receiver we kept resurrecting from unemployment who, at times, looked like an All Pro because of Rivers? Goddamn it! I suck with names.

    Oh. And, if you didn't get the Holyfield reference and are wondering why I didn't mention Mike Tyson biting off a piece of Rivers's ear, here's what I mean. I didn't realize how great The Real Deal was until I saw him lose to Riddick Bowe. I didn't realize how great Rivers was until I saw him get his *** kicked for a couple ... I mean a few ... I mean quite a few years.

    Any tweets worth sharing?

    The sack stats were cool but still half a season to go just about. So all of those teams listed are more likely to finish their seasons above 25 sacks than not get sacked.

    Until he leads a team to a Championship, his HOF resume is incomplete IMO.

    Political sort of opinion
    Here's what I predict. All the "written answers" that Mueller has requested from El Presidente done by his attorneys in long, legal language of no way Jose, when released, will be reverse tweeted by the Trump. His ego won't allow him not to comment on
    "there was an issue I should have engaged in"....really means---No Way! Made up dates! I never engaged anyone willingly! Dems rule! Putin Power!"

    So Dan Fouts should not be in the HOF, right?
    So Dan Marino should not be in the HOF, right?
    So, Fran Tarkington should not be in the HOF, right?

    Or are you just spewing this because you are incapable of separating your hate of the Spanos from Philip Rivers?

    Great players have played for the Chargers. As individuals, they had Hall of Fame careers. But that's never brought them or the team what the game is played for, Championships. Thus Alworth, Harrison, Seau sought that with other teams. This promotion of players as HOF careers is nice. But hollow. Claiming other great players in the HOF never won the big game as a “rationale” for your team's player to make it....well, that's nice, too. But as a Fan, and I think Fouts would agree, to have won a Championship is far greater than a 'voted in' honor.

    Who--in the words of Homer Simpson--shall be the exalted, honorable "Judge Judy and executioner" re. what qualifies as 'political'?

    Is this Flannel Moth Caterpillar at odds with the 14th Amendment of the Constitution? (plus the 1st Amendment, just 'cause it's Thursday?)

    Different time different reasons why those 3 QB's are in the HOF. They are all pioneers of the position and arguably transformed that position and game. Rivers is like Carson Palmer or Bernie Kosar. Do those guys belong in the HOF?

    Also, it's not about hate. I'm still a River fan. He's the 2nd or 3rd best SD Charger QB of all time. He just hasn't done enough in the postseason to be HOF worthy.

    I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!! This is what a true ex charger fan from SD truly believes . FUDEAN. He sucks and he does not deserve fan support, particularly in San Diego. "RIPBOLT" is exactly right. That team is dead to San Diegans.
