I think you hit on it. I blame the play calling more than Rivers for his poor play. I thought Reich was going to be using Hines allot catching ball out of the backfield as Rivers has done that his whole career.
I'm in the middle too. I think he is the best QB on the roster and should be the starter. I think the playoffs are a legit possibility and once the playoffs start, any team has a chance for a Super Bowl run. Just have to make the playoffs.
I am sure there were people who had the 49ers beating the LAR. They are (mostly healthy now)...and have their full complement of weapons on offense.
The TB/GB game was crazy though. Seems like GB (and Rodgers) lays a stinker or two each season.
