Agree, Moe. I've seen it time after time: In a tight game, especially with the Bolts behind, it's like Rivers tries too hard to make the big play and gets burned. Once in a while, like on that TD to Gates, he's able to thread the needle, throw a bullet into a very small window and make the play. But on 2-3 of those picks, he threw the rock into double coverage, or a crowd where there were 3 defenders. Not smart. Basic football 101 is, if you don't have an open receiver, either throw it away, run it (which with Phil's cement feet is not really an option) or take the sack. Even taking the sack at least gives you a another down at times, a FG attempt, or a punt, ANYTHING but turning it over.

Gates is closer to 40 than 30 and had 4 drops yesterday. Henry is a rookie and though he's a stud, he's got a lot to learn. Gordon is a RB so why did you throw him in?

That leaves us the WRs who EVERY SINGLE ONE on the field yesterday was an undrafted FA. Inman is so inconsistent it's not even funny anymore and Williams would be a #3, maybe a #2 on every other team in the league.

And their pressure wasn't consistent? I was driving for the game and listening to Hardwick who was constantly talking about how good the Dolphins D line is and how disruprive they were yesterday.

It's so easy to blame Rivers but you put Tannehill on our team yesterday and we get beat by 20+

Inman and Twill are UDFA's, but with quite a bit of game and practice experience with Rivers. If you're going to use the UDFA argument, then Gates is also an UDFA.

I threw Gordon in because he's become a weapon in the passing game and they should use him more. He's an option.

Watch the game. Rivers had time on his critical INT's. He was rattled tho. He threw into double coverage in the end zone. His missed a throw to Gates but hit Maxwell on the numbers. He got tricked by Kiko. The last one isn't even worth discussing.

Not sure you can say that about Tannehill. Watch the game. He got drilled on his two biggest pass plays. He used his legs to pick up a critical 3rd down.

Yes, I know Gates I see an UDFA, I said that in an earlier post.

Who cares how much time they have with Rivers, they're still UDFA and not the HOF caliber Gates is. We've lost S Johnson, K Allen and T Benjamin and have nothing but UDFA on the field and you want to solely blame Rivers?

Let's get real

WOW Moe, we have a QB who just passed Elway for all time TDs who will end his career in the top 5 for TDs, top 6 in yards and you're now saying Tannehill may have better success here than Rivers?

Good friggin grief

I can only imagine how good Rivers would be with an AJ Green, Julio Jones, Dez Bryant, Antonio Brown etc etc etc rather than a bunch of UDFA.

Forget all of them, how good would this team be if Johnson, Allen and Benjamin were healthy the entire year? Imagine those three in the game yesterday rather than guys who weren't even freaking drafted

Okay, we can all complain all day long about the injuries to the Bolt WR corps...it still doesn't change the fact that Rivers needs to throw the ball away sometimes instead of forcing it into coverage.

True, he tries way too hard at times and it leads to mistakes. That said, the brutal truth that the problem is Rivers is just a joke. Is he a part of the problem...yes, all 53 men on that team are part of the problem including the coaching staff.

Rivers has his flaws. This whole Rivers saving the day thing gets old. I would also blame the coaching staff for not giving the ball to Gordon when we need to.
