He did state it was his opinion as a fan. (last line).

The specific example would only be a collection of observations , of his demeanor, acts as a coach, and results.

Really, none of us have that "inside" knowledge of the locker room. So all of our opinions are just that. Even the ones where we post pictures of games to support our opinion as proof ignoring all the rest of the plays that don't.

Well, than give one observation out of the collection. It doesn't have to be as defining as Mike McCoy dropping to his knees, burying his head in his hands; but give us something to ponder.

* Yes, these views are from the distance of a fan.
I see it differently. I see a team that plays hard every game. In years past, if you've been a Charger fan for very long, you have seen games when the entire team seemed disinterested. I think this team, as a whole, likes Lynn and gives him their all.

I do agree that he would do well to replace the ST coach but I'm guessing he's an old friend and Lynn is a loyal kind of guy. Maybe he'll replace him after this season?

Maybe it's these rose colored glasses I'm wearing?

I think Lynn gives someone a window to perform before he promptly drops them. Some get a longer leash than others ie. Sturgis and Kaser, but he eventually does what is right. Unless ST suddenly turns things around, I feel Lynn will do the right thing.

Hope he continues playing at that high a level.
So . . . the way you saw it Rivers did nothing wrong.

Noted.

Let's just face it. Rivers is a talented qb, but has those occasional brain farts that can cost you big in close games. When he feels like he has to do everything from pre snap to finish repeatedly, it is a bad look in the long run. H gets frantic.


He is HOF WORTHY based on stats, but he's not an elite qb that can consistently take over and win you games on the big stage. He never has been and nothing convinces me that he ever will be. He's a veteran who makes rookie mistakes in those situations unfortunately when trying to do too much.

Having said that, we are still quite lucky to have him, as he is better than a majority of QBs in the league. He has the talent, just isn't as strong mentally as we would like in those situations. And that is OK. At the end of the day, the best rivers is a controlled Rivers w/ a solid run game. Rivers who has to throw too many times, ends up costing the team in most cases.

As long as the coaches understand this, they can succeed with him at the helm. They just need the tighten the reigns on him a bit so he isn't doing so much play changing pre snap and throwing as much. If the eagles can win it with Foles, I have to believe the same is possible with Philip freakin' Rivers.

I don't know how I interpret it, or if that's what he intended to convey.

Though, there are some (somewhere) that can understand an individual's full game performance is rarely either perfect or atrocious, but most often somewhere in between with in-game examples at each end of the spectrum.

This is motivating:

Kobe said what motivates him is wanting to embarrass his opponent. What motivates PR is love of his teammates.

Yep, I agree the players probably like AL, and even enjoy playing for him. You say "disinterested" and I call it lack of focus.....and we have seen lack of focus, last game being a great example. Lynn will get reasonable success, even make the PO's here and there, might win a game as well......but he is not the answer in my view. Too average, too boring, too safe.....zero creativity.

Friendship gets you in the door, poor performance gets you shown the door, friend or not.
