    No doubt, Lefty's on a roll. First the Scottish then the big one. Maybe Lindsay's taking too much out of Tiger...

    I find it hard to believe that a player as good as Rivers just suddenly loses it. His decline is tied to the offensive line problems, and I don't think you can separate the two. Give Rivers better protection, and you'll see a different player. We all know he's the most reliant on his protection to be successful, as he's not athletic and can't buy extra time with his feet. An offense that's geared to get the ball out sooner will surely benefit him.

    I think Philip will have a bounce back year, then then all his critics can go back to taking potshots at more worthy candidates, like Sanchez, Romo, Cultler, and their ilk.

    +1, and morning X! :tup:

    As others have pointed out, (except those with incredibly short memories), despite all of the O-Line's difficulty helping to generate *any* kind of run game, and obvious lack of pass protection - we were still in and even ahead in many of our losses - and then came the defensive 4th quarter meltdowns. If the defense had been able to sustain their performance for all 4 quarters, we would STILL have had a winning season even with all of the offensive short-comings. Our team needed major improvement on both sides of the ball and I'm waiting to see if they achieved anything close to doing so - show me.

    MLB getting raided again. Von Miller of course, didn't do anything wrong ;)

    Getting to be about time to just ban the bastages. No slap on the wrist, no we'll give you your first one, just ban them.
    By the way, does the NBA even test?

    Ditto ....

    Ofcourse we all "hope" that this is the case in regards to FILLUP, but, it must be noted, I seen certain things in his game that had very little to do with what anyone else was or wasn't doing and it's feasible to give the guy the benefit of the doubt to a certain degree, but it has been 2 full seasons now since he has looked dominating, not just a few games here and there.

    I haven't given up totally on the guy quite yet, his first 4 years or so have earnt him my utmost respect, BUT, the clock is running nonetheless and in today's game, your past credits only have a certain shelf life.

    Seriously !!!!! ..... This league is turning into a remake of Dumb & Dumber.

    Guess the specs only made him look intelligent and geeky, but didn't fool the piss testers. ;)

    If the NBA does, they turn a blind eye to it from what I seen with my own two perfectly good eyes.

    Those bastards smoke the hooch like I breathe air ....... Can recall walking into hotel rooms that I thought had been bombed for beg bugs .....

    But NO, it was just The Chief, Cherokee Parks having his daily Pow Wow. :)

    Just now catching up on todays news .....

    A measley 65 game suspension for a guy who like Lance, Barry Potatohead Bonds etc etc etc. lied his arse off till the evidence become so overwhelming, he simply throws himself at the mercy of the executioner and gets a wrist tap for his indiscretions.

    Seriously, was there ever any doubt ? .............not in my mind, there rarely ever is in what we call elite sports these days.

    The amount of money thrown in their direction, dictates to what level todays players are willing to go to succeed and that wont change regardless of what anyone wants or thinks, to think otherwise you'd have to be delusional.

    Asking players to be honest/clean in many sports todays is the equivalent to asking the Cat to feed the Goldfish while your away on holidays .................fraught with danger and basically impossible, with the outcome an inevitable one.

    What I find more amazing is the simple fact that a guy like an ARod is still even relevant ...................surely if your the Yankee's, your doing everything humanly possible to unload this loser who is bleeding you dry for zero return anyway !!

    Said it before and I'll say it again ...........

    Until there are serious criminal charges along the lines of the Marion Jones situation, players will continue to test the waters and lie their arses off to protect their hefty livelyhoods, thats the one thing you can take to the bank.

    Making sense of "Jaws" ranking Rivers 17th
    By Tom Krasovic
    7:40 A.M. JULY 23, 2013

    In his quarterback rankings, former NFL passer Ron Jaworski rates Philip Rivers 17th in the NFL.

    First, the praise.

    "If you ever listen to audio of Rivers on the field, you can hear how impressive he is," Jaworski writes for ESPN. "He understands everything that's happening on both sides of the football."

    Jaworski notes that the Chargers offensive line failed Rivers last year -- "particularly at left tackle," he writes -- but he also faults Rivers.

    "His inner drive caused him to overcompensate, leading to an NFL-high eight third-down interceptions," he said.

    While Jaworski's comments are fair, 17th is a few spots too low.

    Jaworski misses the mark when he ranks Matt Schaub ninth. Schaub belongs behind Rivers, and Jaworski provided one of the reasons for it. Rivers understands everything that's happening on both sides of the ball. He also has a quicker release than Schaub and throws with better touch and accuracy. Schaub is a respectable NFL quarterback who looks sharp when the Texans run the ball well enough to unleash their play-action game.

    It's fun to rank quarterbacks, but doing so in isolation is close to folly.

    How the team's personnel and coaching suit the player is also part of the puzzle. As impressive as Colin Kaepernick was last year, directing the 49ers to the Super Bowl, the 49ers' talent and coaching made the job easier for him. Seldom, for example, did Kaepernick have to read beyond his first or second option. Jaworski ranks Kaepernick 11th. He lists Jay Cutler 14th, no doubt because Cutler's protection was similarly bad as that given Rivers. Echoing some of my points from May, he doesn't underrate Joe Flacco, placing him fourth.

    For what it's worth, Rivers had a better passer rating than Flacco last year and was a fourth-and-29 away from beating him.

    A good place for any NFL team to start is with a quarterback who "understands everything that's happening on both sides of the football," and the Chargers have that in Rivers. Will Rivers sharpen his footwork and smarten up on third down? Will the Chargers provide him more help than in the last two years? The answers need to be yes for the Chargers to return to the playoffs, but Rivers, despite his recent struggles and limitations in out-of-the-pocket mobility and arm strength, is the No. 1 reason why they have a shot at the postseason.

    I have no problem at all with Jaws opinion ...... 17th sounds about right if your being totally honest with yourself.

    Based on his recent form over the past 2 seasons, 17th may actually be generous.

    Lets hope this sort of summary pricks Fullups pride and he can recapture some of the glorious past.
