Full disclosure: I'm not loving the idea of getting Rivers. With Reich in the building, I don't think we need a "mentor" for any potential young QB coming in next year. I know I'm in the minority here, but I just don't think Rivers is a significant upgrade over JB and I'd rather give JB another shot unless there's a young QB the organization is in love with in the draft. Anyways....to the point of this thread:
By the sounds of it, Rivers will soon be a Colt. There's a bit of a debate over his arm strength or lack thereof. I've been in the camp questioning his arm strength. ...and the fact he'll be another year older entering this season does have me even more concerned. With that being said, to be fair to Rivers, I reviewed his highlight tape from last year and have to admit, he did show the ability to make some tough throws and even push the ball down the field better than I initially thought. ...at the same time, I can remember watching Chargers games last year thinking he's lost it.
Whether it's JB, Rivers, or any other QB, we've got to add some other credible threat to the passing game. If TY goes down, we're screwed on offense.
For those curious, check out Rivers' highlight tape from last year.
