    Would Brees be playing into the second quarter ?

    Hmmmm....I would think not?

    Marty said he would treat Rivers no differently than Brees in the pre-season rotation......it makes me wonder ????

    I would like to see Whitehurst play the 3rd and 4th qtrs with Feeley doing the second qtr.....Let Rivers do one quarter only....

    I think because it's a home game and it's against the suck-*** Packers, Rivers will be getting more playing time. Marty wants to give Philip as many reps against a crappy defense to get his feet wet, so to speak.

    The QB depth is pretty much set. It's only a matter of whether Feeley is the #2 or #3.

    I'd bet if it were an away game or it was versus a team with a very good pass defense, Rivers would play only the first several possessions.

    I think Rivers needs a little more practice than only one quarter, maybe

    Rivers 1st and half the 2nd
    Feeley half 2nd and half 3rd
    Whitehurst half 3rd and half 4th
    an the fourth QB (do we have one? :icon_mrgreen: ) the rest

    I saw somewhere that it said Elliott wasn't going to get any game snaps for whatever reason. I guess they are loading up Rivers with most of the plays, then splitting the last two quarters with Whitehurst and Feeley. I wonder if Feeley will school the 4th stringers???

    I think they have Elliott penciled in for the practice squad already.

    It will be Feeley vs. Whitehurst for the #2 spot.

    I would like those early reps to go the Whitehurst as much as possible. Anyway this can happen would rock.

    By the fourth game, Rivers will be playing deep into the 3rd qtr. if not 4th qtr. so I am not as worried about him getting repped to death in pre-season. Whitehurst needs the reps.........bad.

    I do not think the Chargers want the fourth stringers to school Feeley is the more likely scenario. :icon_mrgreen:

    Yeah, that's one way to look at it.

    I hope Whitehurst plays well enough to become the #2. Feeley worries me as Rivers' backup, "veteran" status notwithstanding.

    I think Elliott becomes our #3 next season. Feeley's a goner.

    From what I gather, Feeley's had since last October to learn the Chargers offense, and here, a rookie in Whitehurst who's only been with the team since May, and no NFL experience, is reportedly outperforming him in camp.

    I still think we'll go on the waiver wire for a #2; t he idea of a shotgun system QB with no experience as our #2 is NOT a good thing. Elliot will be on the practice squad and trust me, he'll be #3 next year for sure

    I would like to see us cut Feeley and go after Kerry Collins as our #2 QB.

    So what if he's a former Raider. The dude has vastly more NFL and postseason experience than Feeley, has started in two Super Bowls, and is a much better QB than him.

    If Collins is willing to accept the #2 role, come on down!

    After the final cuts, you never know, we might find someone better to pick up. As of RIGHT NOW, yeah Collins is the best choice on teh wires. But in late August, you never know who you might find.

    And he hasn't gotten any offers.

    He'll likely wind up as the #2 somewhere. Preferably with a team that will make a SUper Bowl run, like us. ;)

    But you'd rather Feeley be the #2?

    Compared to Feeley, Collins is Joe Montana or John Elway.

    Yeah, you're right Trumpie. Let's keep Feeley on the roster, wasting space.

    You guys who don't want to drop Feeley and go after Collins, name me one other veteran QB who's available in free agency.

    I don't have a problem bringing Collins in to replace Feeley. He's hated in Oakland, but t least he's led a team to the SB.

    That is like asking me "do I like this turd or this turd?"

    Collins is a drunk worse than me......:yes: and Maurice Clarett's adventures with Gray Goose on the loose.

    Nobody but I do not think we need to get desperate either by reaching for Kerry "Tom" Collins

    Who said anything about Feeley? Whitehurst is our man for the backup job.
