Default Shut Down Rivers w/ 2-3 weeks to go in the season

I'm actually hoping they do it.
It's not because of his play, but im concerned for his mental and physical health more than anything.

Also, it would give Whitehurst one more shot to show that he's got NFL starting material and could be worth something in trade value that could help us fill a hole for next year.

Hmmm... maybe we should extend that to the whole team. Call it day OR, let the backups play... hell, we might someone worth keeping.

That won't happen with Norv as HC. He needs to try and get the wins so that he can polish up his resume.

Who cares what Phillip wants?

He has already shown questionable decision skills with his endorsement of Norv and his numerous BAD interceptions.

There was no bounce back this year.
I agree, from Rivers body language and from the way he was sitting on the sidelines on one knee last game just shows me he knows the team needs change. He looks like a guy who has accepted reality about Norv. Even look at Rivers in post game interviews. His interviews are so different than before. Rivers lobbied for Norv out of guilt imo for his terrible play.

Sorry guys, but I don't see Rivers getting benched.

Maybe if we had a future franchise QB sitting behind him. Maybe.

But not with Whitehurst shining pine and holding the clipboard.

Norv is going to go with his starters the rest of the way. I'm pretty sure that every man on that team wants to win the rest of the way.

Talk about players giving up, quitting, hating Norv, and all that other stuff is just fans projecting their own feelings onto other people.
