you draft a QB when he's avail........ as if one will magically be there when PR is ready to hang it up? sometimes you get lucky and find one right away, sometimes it takes years.

Agreed. Even if you draft him in the top 15. Paying $5 million a year for two years is peanuts compared to the loss of fanbase with no qb waiting in the wings.

Default Hadn't read about this anywhere else to date ...

Just caught this in Michael Silver's NFL.com article:

Quote:
CARSON, Calif. -- Midway through an anxious week, as he slogged through a mid-day Southern California commute, Philip Rivers had turkey and traffic on the brain. Sitting in the back of the custom SUV that routinely transports him from the Los Angeles Chargers' Orange County training facility to his San Diego home, the 15th-year quarterback was eager to join his pregnant wife, Tiffany, and their eight children for an epic family feast.

Yet his stomach was left to rumble, for last Thursday afternoon, the interstate was slower than Rivers ambling out of the pocket and rolling toward the sideline. On the drive that wouldn't end, he wasn't feeling particularly thankful.

"The Thanksgiving traffic was brutal," Rivers recalled after his near-perfect performance (no, really) keyed the Chargers to a 45-10 thrashing of the Arizona Cardinals at StubHub Center. "It was worse than (rush hour on) a normal day. I was like, 'Where is everybody going?' "

Three days later, Rivers' right arm was more accurate than traffic-enhanced GPS. His record-setting performance not only helped the Chargers (8-3) bounce back from an ultra-frustrating defeat the previous Sunday, but it also served as a stark reminder that the Rams aren't the only L.A. team with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations.

...
