This thread title reminded me of yesterday's yelling at the sidelines, between timeout and Williams TD.
Rivers expressed rage well, but not nearly as well as Matthew Stafford yelling at Ebron and Jones Jr. against the Colts this year.

Some players just aren't able to perform well under pressure. It is not in their nature similar to Nate Kaeding.
I think it's more inconsistent at being clutch. Unlike Kaeding, we've seen Rivers be clutch before. The question is why isn't it happening as much as it did in the past.

A lot of people as they age become more impatient. I see it with some of the mods

I love Rivers. He's the primary reason why the Chargers still have a chance to win games that they don't look like they should be able to win. But he also freaks out from time to time, and throws the ball to the opposing teams defense? Why? Doesn't it puzzle anyone else?

My guess is Ice cream. .....Too much ice cream before a game....

He doesn't seem like a guy that has too may vices. Good family man. I don't imagine for a moment that he's a big drinker, or a smoker. So what make this guy, who is like a coach, and field general, on the field, lose his complete mind from time to time, and freak out?

After much consideration I'm sticking with the brain freeze that eating ice cream too fast can cause. Or maybe drinking too much good old fashioned Sweet Tea, full of sugar, and resting in a glass full of icecubes, too fast.

I just can't explain those moments of freak out any other way.

What's your take?
It could be the Domino's pizza...m

My only issue with Rivers is his mechanics. When he scrambles, which is far too often, he pulls the ball into his chest, holds it with both hands and "runs" or something similar to running but significantly slower. Then he has to reset to throw after his feet are set.
Other minimally mobile QB's in the league can slide around the pocket while keeping their eyes downfield and the ball in a somewhat throwing position and take a shot without much effort.
It could be his awkward drop down throwing motion, or the fact that maybe he cant walk and chew gum at the same time, but it is an issue.
