  1. yeah unfortunately Top QB’s are always weighed on SB wins, even though it’s a team game with a 53 man roster. Big Ben is credited for winning 2, but we never hear anyone talk about the fact that in the 05 SB he was 9 for 21 123 yds 0 TD and 2 INT
  2. I think with a QB like Rivers, the Oline is more important that who he’s throwing too. In 2010 he threw for 4700 yds 30 TD and 13 INT. Vincent Jackson held out that year, so he was throwing to 2nd - 4th string WR and put up some of his best numbers. This was also behind a bad Oline(allowed 7 sacks in one game).
  3. I get why people are concerned. But from someone who has watched him play every game since 07, he has alway put up solid numbers even with bad Oline. The last time he has a solid Oline was 2009. He’s been playing behind a garbage Oline since 2010, and still putting up top tier numbers. Last year the Oline was plagued with injuries, and awful. Pair that with a 28th ranked run game and you got a recipe for a cruddy QB. I’d imagine him playing behind this Oline, with an actual run game, you are going to see much better stats.
  4. Look at his historical stats. 2019’s Oline was a bag of garbage covered in diarrhea. Any QB would’ve struggled behind them. 10 of his turnovers came in 3 games. He’ll be much better behind that Colts Oline.
  5. First INT was more of a fumble than an INT. Next 2 were alright throws. WR could’ve done a bit more to fight, but still Blame part on rivers. The 4th INT was 100% on him. He threw a jump ball to a 5’9” Ekeler when he has Mike Williams on the team. I’m the biggest Rivers defender, but this was just one of his stupid throws.
  6. As soon as I saw Wentz top 5, I immediately closed the article
  7. LOL, this is the Chargers current Oline. Bulaga and Turner were just signed in FA. Pouncey went on IR early in the season, and Okung was also out most of the season. They had a makeshift Oline of players not even fit to block in High School. Gordon holdout combined with the terrible Oline made for a 28th ranked rushing attack, putting more pressure on Rivers in the passing game, with a constantly crumbling Oline.
  8. NFL Game Pass is free right now. I’d recommend watching his game VS Steelers and Vikings. Oline was so beyond trash the pocket was literally crumbling the second he got the ball. I don’t think any QB would’ve played well behind that Oline.
  9. A lot of outsiders have the wrong opinion on him due to small clips of what they’ve seen. But dude is 100% humble. Year after year Chargers have let him down, and he always has blamed himself for not playing better(he ranks almost top 10 in every major passing category). Defense would give up 30 points and dude would be in the post game conference talking about “we could’ve done more to help the defense out.” I have a feeling Colts fans are gonna love him once they see him in more than just clips of him being angry over a bad play.
  10. Ex- Charger fan here. In 2018 Rivers had a crappy Oline, yet still managed to have an MVP year(would've won MVP had Mahomes not emerged). In 2019, they lost Pouncey and Okung for long periods. That Oline went from bad to trash real quick. The significant increase in INT was due to constant pressure and getting murdered in the pocket. NFL Game Pass is free. I'd encourage you to watch the Steelers game and Vikings game to see how awful that oline was. Or any of the other games for that matter. Rivers is finally getting a few things he hasn't had in forever. Good Coach(hasn't had since Marty 06), top oline(hasn't had since 2009), good run game(2007), and with the addition of Buckner I'd imagine your D won't be bad. With a well balanced team(something Rivers really hasn't had since first few years), I don't think he'll be forced to play hero ball, chucking up deep passes into triple coverage to try and keep game alive. Lynn's coaching style was very poor and used up all 40 seconds of each play, limiting number of possessions. Their play calling was also predictable - run, run, throw on 3rd and long. Didn't take a defensive mastermind to shut them down. I'd imagine Rivers will be in great form next year. I think decent yardage, solid increase in TD's, and low amount of INT. I am truly hoping he can show the world he isn't washed up, and that the Chargers are just a garbage organization that didn't know how to win with a future HoF QB.
  11. Posted this before, but Lifelong Chargers fan here. Unfortunately now without a team due to what the Chargers did to SD and Rivers. Been excited to see where he lands for next team. Been lurking this board because for me it is the #1 place I'd like to see him go. I understand without being a fan and watching a team week after week, you can't really grasp how everything went down. All you can rely on is the stats and win/loss column. Now, I could be completely wrong, and maybe last year was a sign of his decline. But as someone who watched every single game multiple times from 2019, that offensive line was pure trash. Watch the steelers game if you really want to see how bad it was. The offensive line was constantly crumbling around him. Not to say some of the INT weren't on him, but the offensive line and play calling were overall bad. Rivers would've been MVP in 2018 and taken his team to the #1 seed, had it not been for KC moving on from Smith and starting Mahomes. That was with a bad oline too. I'd hate to imagine he went from MVP level to retirement level in the span of a season. The reason I'm excited for Colts as a landing spot is because he will have a few things he's never had - a top oline(hasn't had since 09), good coach, solid run game(hasn't had this since 08), and ownership that actually cares about winning. I haven't seen any of the Colts games outside of Colts vs Chargers week 1, but I can see 6 of your 9 losses were by 7 or less. And JB's numbers looked mediocre. I'd imagine if you got a QB like Rivers who could play like he did in 2018, you add some more wins to that column and become competitors. But I completely understand the sentiment coming from the people who don't want to see Rivers there. All you see if a QB nearing the end of his career coming off the worst statistical season of his career. But I believe Rivers behind a good oline, with a run game, he can still play at a high level.

I understand without being a fan and watching a team week after week, you can't really grasp how everything went down. Yes, Rivers has only made one Championship game, but this wasn't due to his lack of play or talent. It's a 52 man team, and you need a team to win. 06 and 07 were his best teams. 06 they lost to Patriots because of a number of awful plays by the team. In 07, in the AFCCG he played on a torn ACL with LT sitting out the game with an injury - playing an undefeated Patriots team on the road. I don't think any Chargers fans were really expecting the upset with all those factors. In 08 they were 8-8 and weren't expected to do anything in playoffs, but happened to beat the colts. And in 09 lost a 3 point game in where our kicker missed 3 FG. After 09, the offensive line went on a decline and was never properly fixed. The defense was mediocre from 2011 - 2017. Meanwhile Rivers stats were always solid, minus a couple bad turnover years(which was due to awful offensive line play). Check out his stats from 2010. He was throwing to 2nd - 4th string WR that year because Jackson held out. Add to the list having nothing but garbage head coaches and owners that don't have winning mentality. Now, I could be completely wrong, and maybe last year was a sign of his decline. But as someone who watched every single game multiple times from 2019, that offensive line was pure trash.
