    See for yourselves. This was pretty frickin cool. I was lookin at the school football website and saw a poll...about THE CHARGERS. At the time I looked the answers were 80% yes and 20% no. It was asking if you thought the Chargers would make it to the Super Bowl.

    By the way, Athens is in the semi-finals tomorrow night in the State playoffs. Gonna be colder than crap but we'll be there watching! Today the high was 75...tomorrow the high is 32. Brrrrrrrrr!!!!

    Speaking of polls. In Chicago, the local sports radio station did a poll today. Which AFC QB besides Brady and Manning deserves to go to the pro-bowl.

    Rivers is winning in a landslide

    Rivers-64%
    Palmer-20%
    McNair-12%
    Other-3%

    I thought this was especially cool, seeing as it is probably mostly non-AFC fans voting.

    Back to the thread. Keep warm and best of luck to Athens tomorrow!!!!

    NEVER will there be another like Rivers. :icon_wink: Rob Ezell is a good qb. but he tends to hurry himself at times and it causes some inconsistency. but overall, he's a very good qb. I hope he gets a scholarship somewhere. he's worked hard at the position and is a senior this year....so next year...#17 gets passed to someone else.

    thanks for all the good wishes to AHS!! This is the furtherest they been in the playoffs in a long time. Last time was 3rd round, this is 4th and seminfinal round. IF we pull off a win, it'll be onto Birmingham to the finals. :yes:

    Just to give you an idea of how much they think of Rivers, 97% think that the Bolts are going to the Super Bowl, and only 94% think Athens High is going to make it to the State Finals. :lol:

    Drove through your fair town Tuesday!!!

    Had a meeting in Huntsville and drove through. I'm actually through Athens a few times a year and that area has really grown with Huntsville's explosion in the tech industries and TVA has fueled some economic development efforts down there.

    Is Lawler's Barbecue still in business??? They had a pretty good spread there in the past.

    They should make a shrine to Philip.:yes:

    They should also celebrate Rivers Day and have special classes where they show videos of the great Philip Rivers all day and teach the students about the god that walked among their halls. They should also, if funding allows it, gold plate Philips former locker and the table where he ate lunch.:yes:

    Good luck in your game Golden Eagles!
