When he throws those INTs, how can he blame and yell at Norv Turner when he made the stupid throws or fumbles?

At least Vick plays with more heart and plays all out, whereas Rivers will quit on the plays. And Maybe if Rivers quits complaining after every play, his OL may try to block better for him.

Kemp, stay out of my thread if you don't like. I guess you're satisfied we didn't make the playoffs and like watching the Lame Duck shows!

Hahahaha! Wonderful. My favorite part of CMB arguments is when another poster tells me to just go away.

Watch we get an Oline of Steel and Rivers still lead the league in turnover next year haha. Such an abused excuse for a QB that is done. Big Ben is toast too, Eli is losing it. That draft year of QBs are all done.

Wilson, Dalton, Griffin, Luck. Move over old guys, the game is changing.

He chased for a Championship and refused to retire because he wanted another chance.

Rivers had an OL before when LT was here. He had his chances guys. Wake up! He had an all-pro, top 10 all-time, future HOF in LT but he couldn't do anything. We once had what? V-JAX, LT, Gates (prime), Sproles, Turner, McNeill (healthy), Dielman, Lo-Neal and still couldn't make it to the big show. Again, Rivers looked awesome when he threw those jump balls to V-JAX and even then, he short armed many of those passes.

Don't get me wrong, guys. I like Rivers and support him, but he's done! I just don't think he should automatically have the starting job without some legitimate competition next season...bring in Alex Smith!
Your last sentence is kind of an oxymoron...

Hmm..i wonder what the Steelers, Giants and Chargers all have in common besides 30 something year old QBs... oh yeah, their o lines suck. Not as bad as ours, but bad nonetheless.

The only difference is that Ben and Eli have better weapons.

Wait, I thought that happened already when Vince Young came out? Or was it before that when Mike Vick entered the league? Hard to keep track of how many times the old guys have had to move over because "the game is changing."

Yeah, the sweet irony of his post is Tom Brady or Peyton Manning are likely walking out in February with the Lombardi trophy.

Your argument, that Smith is more athletic then Rivers, is derailed when you watch Smith throw on the run. He's about as bad as it gets in that area. Couple that with his tendency to panic in the pocket, and you have a miserable fit with the Charger's o-line. No, this is not a good idea. We can't afford to have a QB that needs hand-holding to move an offense.
