    Remember when Rivers used to be fearless? He would stand in the pocket take a hit but make a big play?

    What happened to his testicular fortitude?

    I'll give them more than credit, right now they get the game ball! The offense gets the bird!

    Are you trying to tell me a QB like Brady wouldn't have 2-3 TDs on the board today?

    Agree, they've been excellent! Too bad the Offense can't take advantage.

    Get your *** whooped so many times in so many games back to back, and you turn tail a little bit. Don't blame him as much as I do the OL (GM&COACH)

    1) Brady's mobility compared to Rivers' mobility is off the charts.

    2) He'd have maybe 1 TD. Even Tom Brady isn't immune to completely unblocked rushers and the pocket up the middle collapsing. perhaps you ought to watch more Tom Brady instead of going off of his reputation and stats if you want to draw the comparison. The way you get to Brady (as the Giants showed in the Super Bowl) is pressure up the gut to keep him from being able to step up in the pocket. We're presently playing Nick Hardwick and 2 backup guards (not that our starting guards are anything to write home about) who are getting pushed back on every play (not just passing plays).

    This O-line is just disgraceful, here is our chance. On defense. How bad does that sound.

    Rivers has no pocket presence anymore. I think he has two blindsides.

    Sorry, easy answer rejected. Rivers did that standing in the pocket under Norv. Rivers is happening to Rivers. Norv and OL aint happening but PR needs to be held accountable IMO.

    Good Coaching: Fox is aware of the play clock, calls a timeout to avoid a penalty..
    Bad Coaching: Norv completely ignores the play clock, time runs out, and we get a 3 & 11 instead of 3 & 6.. Its the little things that count..

    do you blame OL/Norv at all for the degradation of Rivers play? I don't deny that Rivers needs to be held accountable in part for his mistakes but i think there's also alot of other issues

    I don't get why this team hasn't looked for options for the o-line.. sign a guy off the street or a practice squad guy..

    Damn. I am not even upset at this. I am back into 1-15 mode, just waiting for a good play to smile about.

    I remember nothing but excuses for the Mole when he played for the Bolt's and he never took credit for his mistakes. At least river's mans up and he isn't alone out there with all this poor play.

    Remind me again why firing Norv during the season is a bad idea?

    Get your pitchforks, torches & choices for GM/Coach next year fans, this is the final nail in the coffin of AJ Smith & Norv Turner

    It starts at the top, then everything rolls downhill after that. I really believe Spanos doesnt want to build a team that wins.
