like i said, i am sticking up for him, i thought he fought hard, that last play is my only criticism...
That INT was pretty horrible, not to mention after the onside kick, he had Alexander wide open and threw it short leading to a punt from midfield.

Imo, PR is still a great qb. He made a game out of it, despite all odds. He had a bad throw over the middle, on a ridiculous play by Norv (one receiver to throw to, 2 decoys to the right that stopped and watched).

PR is a great qb, having a bad year. Many reasons for that, including PR himself, but PR is still filled with competitive fire and has the ability.

Norv on the other hand is a mediocre coach having another mediocre year.

The fix is easy and obvious.

He played a game without an ACL tendon, he has never thrown anyone else under the bus. There have been zero reports about Rivers being a problem in practice.

Now I am not saying Rivers is playing well... He isn't. Even when teh OL gives him time, which is rare, he is stinking it up and embarrassing himself, the team and this city.

Still, this isn't an issue taht is solved by punishment IMO. If we had a QB in the wings that we thought might be better it would be different... but evidently the coaching staff hasn't seen enough out of Whitehurst, who couldn't start for the Seahawks, to give him a shot.

Rivers isn't a guy who needs to be taught a lesson before he plays better. I don't see this as an issue that a benching would fix. Benching him does not make the team better... And Whitehurst isn’t the QB of the future who could benefit from NFL experience in garbage games.
What will fix Rivers and make him play better then? Benching him might not, but what else will the team do to hold one of the most disappointing players accountable? Give Norv an extension again?

Cutlers record as a chicago bear is pretty impressive the last two years...

he's not perfect, but good QBs are hard to find, if you have one, even in Cutler, then build around him...

Whitehurst would be able to make that throw. He may not complete the pass, but he should be able to throw it farther than Rivers.

That's the same logic that let's a guy start an AFC championship game with a totally torn ACL instead of giving a capable back up the full week of reps and letting him start, I don't get the way NFL coaches think sometimes.

we don't know without trying... like i said, never quit til the final second reaches zero...

i'd be surprised if this wasnt at least mentioned some by SD local media pundits...

but either way, i still think PR was a fighter out there...
