Just an FYI. Rivers could not beat Oakland this year in two tries. With the talent that team has & he cannot win with them.
Wonder if they are going to bench him? Oh yea, he puts up great numbers against crap teams every week.
It's ironic how you come to the defense of Henne by pointing out particulars of the rest of the team and yet in Rivers case it's just a blanket statement of "He couldn't beat the Raiders" .....
The Chargers have fielded a special teams unit nearly as pathetic as ours. They have the NFL's official M.A.S.H wide receiving core. Injuries to Buster Davis, Legedu Nanee, Malcolm Floyd, Patrick Crayton, Antonio Gates .... Jackson's hold out .... Guys like Randy McMichael and Seyi Ajirotutu have been catching passes and touchdowns from Rivers because he's putting the ball on the money.
The schedule has certainly been easier for them, but that still doesn't take away from what Rivers is doing. It goes without saying that the outcome could possibly be different if the Chargers faced more upper echelon competition, but there's no way to say you know for sure he wouldn't perform as well.
What is known is he's lighting it up with whoever SD decides to trot out there off the street. He's a maniac about studying game film. He's a fierce competitor. He's a true leader. I saw a video they showed on ESPN with he and Marino side by side and he's the closest thing to Dan I have ever seen.
