  • Phillip Rivers "Arm"

    Is it just me or does anyone else hates Rivers arm?

    Aside from his weird chicken wing side arm, he clearly does not have any zip on any of his passes and that kills me. I give him all the credit for having the accuracy but he just does not wow me with his strength. I wonder what everyone else thinks about this.

    Well he always gets the ball there, so who cares how it looks.

      The funny part is, he's the best deep ball thrower in football.

        Agreed just because it doesn't look pretty doesn't mean he can't get it done. Sure he has an awkward looking release but it's enough to get it there and a lot of his passes are on point.

          The bone I pick with Rivers is not about how his motion is, it's about the way the ball looks when he throws it which is very sloppy.

            To me, it actually looks pretty nice. Certainly fits passes into tight windows all the time.

                All I know about him is that he was a beast for us at Da U.

                  Phillip Rivers is a strong-armed version of Kosar.

                    Phillip Rivers and his floaters are nice high class comedy.

                      Phillip Rivers is an odd quarterback, that's for sure. But he's also one of the best in the NFL(and on any given week is capable of being the best). Nothing wrong with him arm wise despite the way it looks. His deep ball is actually really good.

                        It's amazing that more of his passes aren't deflected at the line with that delivery.

                        Call me crazy but I think I'd take Rivers over ANY QB in the league not named Peyton right now.

                        With the emergence of Mathews, that offense is going to get real ******* scary come Week 12.

                        Gates - VJax - Floyd - 3 RBs

                        Damn. Thank goodness KC didn't tie BUF. That may end up being the difference in this division.

                          the velocity on his throws is pretty weak and has always been

                          however, this allows him to throw a very catchable ball and is why the chargers have picked guys off the street this year and the passing game has still done well

                          the delivery is unorthodox to say the least (and was even worse in college) but it gets the ball out pretty quick

                          i'm constantly amazed with how he doesn't sell out his WRs all that often. you'd think he'd get guys lit up ALL the time with his arm strength, but usually when he throws those kind of passes in the middle of the field he throws it really high (allowing his generally tall receiving corps a chance) which still results in violent looking hits but none of the helmet to helmet or shoulder to back stuff that is really damaging. i think some of this is him and some of it is good design and play calling. norv doesn't get the credit he deserves as a QB coach/OC imo. he is an awful HC, without a doubt, but if someone could just keep him happy as an OC he'd be an asset
