    Do us all a favor. Please videotape yourself throwing a football. I mean, if we're gonna talk about his throwing motion we should have some idea of your own credentials in this area of expertise.

    And yes Whitehurst has a great throwing motion... near perfect but not there. Rivers is a stupid hillbilly with A.D.D. who was brainwashed by Morty.

    BS. Ask Chargerlipz when he's online- we played catch in the parking lot a couple years ago at a game and I was humming the ball so hard everybody stopped playing catch with me. I saw Alex Spanos peeking out his window watching me but as we can see he's not a very good talent evaluator so I never got the call.

    Going into the 2005 draft VJ was seen by most as a tight end yet Morty decided to put him at WR. What a stupid move.

    He has above average receiver skills but he's another guy AJ drafted who has no football IQ. If you put Eric Parker's mind in Vincent Jackson's body you have a #1 receiver.

    And where was EP's mind when he tried to catch that punt (he muffed) in the playoff game last year?

    There's a difference between focus and football IQ. I was referring to his football IQ.

    Its not so much about mechanics, its alot more about accuracy.

    You should try to compare eli to Rivers mechanically and then compare their numbers like completion percentage, QBR, probowls, etc.

    Looks the same to me and he was a probowl selection. Volek is a backup and Whitehurst stinks...good mechanics and all and he stunk against 3rd stringers.

    So much for good mechanics.

    Ill take the guy with the weird motion who was named to the probowl. Could stand to improve his footwork tho.

    Tony Romo throws a sidearm, upward type ball and he is dong fine too.

    Leisure -

    Maybe you need to rotate the air in your tires?

    Did you check your alternator? Maybe your boyfriend can give you a jump.

    I am thrashing him every where. It is easy to do the way he flip-flops and lacks the conviction, moral fiber, metal of will and testicular fortitude to back what he says.

    He calls Rivers the Chosen one. Says he will take us to the promised land. Sells himself as some 'prophet' of Rivers.

    Yet his player hits a rough patch and the man is there nibbling on Rives' ankles... It is really sad...

    Speaking of Elisha, did anyone see that pass he threw RIGHT INTO the defender's midsection for an INT from 3 yards away?

    Geez, some may criticize Rivers' 3 INT (1 versus Chicago, and 2 versus NE), but he didn't throw them right into a standing defender's hands from 3 yards away. The Packer defender was just standing there picking his nose and then whammo, football hits him in the midsection and hands.

    Oh yeah, Elisha's shoulder had a boo-boo. Cry me a river, it's still an INT for Archie's daughter.
