For whatever reason, Rivers is more successful with that type WR. Big body, not a burner. I wish we had kept Spurlock too.

Heck .... next offseason, re-sign Spurlock from wherever he is now .... keep Alexander and Tuto as well.

Dump Meacham and Royal.

That would give us:

Floyd
Brown
Alexander
Tutu
Spurlock

On paper, they aren't "names" .... but they produce well.

Danario has been beasty!! Solid run after catch vs bugs and got open on a few third and longs. Getting good separation. One thing thing that scares me is that knee and you'll see in all his pics the brace he wears. Unfortunately, i think it is only a matter of time. Hope I am wrong, but before we pay the kid to stay, should be a big consideration. Better than meachem and royal so far.

I would really hate to see Royal and Meacham dumped. It seems that Rivers mostly has success with throwing to slow, plodding, big receivers who can fight for his jump ball passes. His Mr. Rogers in the neighborhood type throws. Not really accurate passes, but close enough so that the receivers can bail him out and make him look better than he really is. So much for being able to stretch the field and opening up the offense by actually being able to complete passes to fast receivers so that they can catch the ball in stride from an accurate quarterback.

Instead of propping up Rivers by trying to build the perfect offensive line to compensate for Rivers immobility, and bringing in big receivers to compensate for his inability to throw accurate passes, I would think it would be easier to replace one position, QB, rather than trying to prop up a QB that is getting up there in years and whose abilities have declined so rapidly by trying to rebuild other areas of the team. By the time the other areas of the team are rebuilt to compensate for Rivers' lack of athleticism, chances are the Chargers are going to be looking for a new QB anyway.

Ya, aj should totally go to the "proven to be franchise quarterback store" and pick up a few to compete, he should get at least three because injuries happen. Oh and throw away that 100 million dollar contract of rivers cuz "its not our money" right? ...talk about la la land.

Teams just haven't shown any respect towards Alexander... Just wait till they start showing him some attention. He'll be mediocre just like our other WR's.

The truth is Rivers is the only college QB to be MVP in 5 bowl games. He had a fantastic college career, and is considered one of the better QB's in the pro's. Yes, it is also true he has played badly the last year and half, but don't fail to include to whole set of work when passing judgement.

I do not know what has caused the change in performance, and certainly I acknowledge the change, but am not willing to cast him aside like he is horrible...



GO BOLTS !

Post makes no sense. The whole jump ball thing is ridiculous. All of Rivers throws to him have been accurate.
