  • New Respect for Rivers

    Yes I went on before about how I had no respect for Rivers and that he needed to step up and become a leader. But, after watching his performance against the pats tonight I have a whole new view on him. He was the heart and soul of the chargers tonight and played with poise. He made play after play and did all that he could. He could not have played tonight and no one would have thought any less of him. His career could have come to an end tonight with one wrong turn to that knee but he still went out there for his teammates and fans. So I take back what I said earlier and give Rivers all the respect I can. Even though the chargers lost tonight rivers proved to everyone what he is made of. So my apologies Rivers for ever thinking less of you.

    What are your thoughts on LT then after this game?

      I must say he still annoys me, he is a crybaby, but he shut me up. That took man sized testes to go out and play through his injury.

        Sign me up. He has played so well throughout the entire playoffs. Like it or not, it was a 2 point game in the 4th quarter despite the Chargers having every excuse in the book to get blown out, and Rivers was the reason.

        Next year a healthy Charger team will be very very dangerous, and Rivers will be one of the primary reasons.

            He just sat their on the sideline though, hiding his crying eyes from the world.

              I've always been a Rivers supporter (or homer if you will, I have been a big fan), but today proved the man does have balls and heart. Questionable antics that make him look a little immature....that being said, his maturity on the field and in the locker room shouldn't be questioned.

              As far as LT, people seem to want a reason to hate the man. Just because Rivers played through injury doesn't mean everyone has too. We had efficient backups and LT just couldn't go. He tried to play all week, and was pulled based on a coach's decision. Until I hear otherwise out of his mouth I'll give a veteran of his status, who has played wtih injury before, the benefit of the doubt.

                Rivers did great, showed grit and earned himself some respect. LT should have encouraged his teammates, even when injured, you can contribute.

                  I think people were making a mountain out of a mole hill with the "antics" and "immature" talk. When Tom Brady talked smack against Anthony Smith no one said anything, but when Philip Rivers said something to Jay Cutler it was blown out of per portion.

                  L.T is one of the game's iron men. I remember back in '04 when he played through half a season with a nasty groin issue. He rarely, and I mean rarely, misses games. I laugh at anyone who questions his toughness.

                          He probably thinks Chris Redman is just as good...

                            Redman would play better if you got him some REAL weapons.

                            Like Methodman.

                              I don't think there was much question about the guy's heart. Just his character. But major props to him playing through injury.
