Not really. we have a qb who has won a superbowl. I'd say giants fans and chargers fans have the same thing in common. A qb who choked in the playoffs. Both 1 and done.

BRING BACK BLEDSOE!!!! HE WON A SB IN 2001!!!
Bledsoe is a QUARTERBACK, a person who will beat you in the pocket. Romo is just an athlete, who runs around with his black-like athleticism.

Irvin? Is that you?

They're winning despite him right now. If he doesn't pick it up, he could become the reason they don't win the super bowl. He's putting alot of pressure on LT and that defense, and eventually, someone(Most likely the Ravens) will contain LT and make Philip beat them. He won't be able to do it playing the way he is now.
This is also his first year as a starter. I don't get where people on this site always crown qb's the next great thing after they have one good season. Also I wouldn't say a guy sucks after starting for only 1 season. It takes time for a qb to either do the job or show he just doesn't have what it takes. Kinda like people jumping on the Romo bandwagon after 4 or 5 good games. These guys are young and you can't annoint them the greatest things since sliced bread.

When was the last time the Chargers drafted a talented WR?
Why didn't they bring in Javon Walker?

They keep thinking Antonio Gates is the only receiving threat the team needs and the bums like slipper hands Erik Parker, and slippery hands Vincent Jackson, and 46-year old Keenan McCardell are good enough.

Well it bit them in the ass today didn't it? Those 9 dropped passes cost them points in a close game. Plus when the idiot DB McCree DID catch the pass on 4th down for an INT, he shouldn't have. All he had to do was knock it down, or pretend he was Erik Parker and drop it.

A QB can only put the ball in a catchable spot. He can't make them catch it. Rivers gets a C for his game today from me. But those WRs get an F.

Rivers blew that game. Sure his WRs dropped a few but he overthrew Jackson a lot. Way too high. The defense and running game played well enough to win and they just didn't get it done at the QB position. Is that a knock on Rivers? Not really. He is a first year QB. Is Rivers overrated? Certainly. I don't know how he is in the pro bowl.

You can only win with a guy back there who is willing to stay in the pocket and throw.
i hope you guys are joking.

If he is just an athlete, athletes dont just throw for over 65% of their passes their first year starting. athletes dont just throw for a LEAGUE BEST 8.61 YPA. Athletes dont just throw for 19 td's. Athletes dont just have a 95+ QB rating their first year starting.

so spare me your hate of the guy.

isnt a coincidence

his first 5 games our D was good, and we could run the ball
the last 6 games our D sucked, and we couldnt run the ball(except for the Seattle game)

isnt a coincidence, that the reason he is running around out there because our OLINE sucks? i mean every fan in the NFL knows the COWBOYS oline sucks.

dont tell me he isnt "smart enough" to play QB. Thats probably the most rediculous thing i have ever heard. Not only did he have a 37 wonderlic score, but he handles the media like a vet, he cracks jokes to them all the time, he gets them laughing. He respects his opponent's. He goes through his progressions like a vet. and if you have seen all of his games you know that he does.

The only thing he needs to work on is his fumbles, and less int's. But it was his first yera starting he cant be perfect
