Philip Rivers - Immediate Upgrade or Long Term Project?

Discussion in 'Chargers Fan Forum' started by Thumper, Apr 7, 2006.

?

How long will it take for Rivers to make a serious impact?

Poll closed May 7, 2006.
  1. Immediately, he's an upgrade at the QB position.

    22.2%
  2. He'll make a few mistakes, but well before the mid-point of the season he'll be dominant.

    44.4%
  3. It'll be beyond mid-season before he can handle the speed of the NFL game.

    11.1%
  4. It won't be until the end of the season before he really gets going, but watch out in '07.

    Ok, Philip Rivers is the heir apparent to lead the Chargers to SB victory and boundless success. The question is how soon. Will he make an immediate impact, or will it take some time.

    I've seen all the film on PR and really do think he has what it takes to be a big time NFL QB. I expect some mistakes during the season, but shuld continue to show improvement. Even while he's still learning I think we'll see some flashes of greatness. My biggest worry is game one against the Faiders. It's been a long time in coming for him to be the undesputed starter, then going on MNF against the Faiders, I hope he doesn't get so amped up, that he makes mistakes. I think he'll settle down by the 2nd quarter, then the PR show is on.

    Honestly, I have no idea. With our current o-line it will be difficult to say the least so let's hope that quick release is as good as they say.

    I don't think PR will dominate before mid season....Give him some time... I'm tossing around the third and the fourth option.... can't decide.

    You cats are about to witness what I have been praying for and now the time has come for you to see what I have been preaching.

    The difference is NIGHT and DAY when you see Rivers throw a ball compared to Brees. I mean black and white. Not even close and you are going to witness some carnage.

    I remember in the first preseason I prayed they would stack the box on Rivers and they did and they BLED. Halleluyeah
