    This is why I respect Philip Rivers so much.

    Chargers.com has a great nugget that illustrates what a huge leader Rivers is in San Diego.

    Rivers is driving around San Diego with a decal on the back of his truck displaying final score -- 17-14 -- of the Chargers’ shocking loss to the New York Jets in the AFC divisional playoffs.

    That’s awesome.

    It shows Rivers has taken total ownership of the loss and he is doing his job as the unquestioned leader of the team to make sure his teammates do the same thing. It has to be a shock of humiliation when Rivers sees that decal every time he gets into his truck. It’s a daily reminder of the devastating loss. Rivers’ decision to get the decal made shows it still haunts him and he is literally carrying the loss with him every day.

    San Diego entered the game with 11 straight wins and as the hottest team in the NFL heading into the playoffs. But several San Diego players, including Rivers, had less-than-stellar games as the Jets took over the game late.

    This is why Rivers is one of the best leaders in the NFL. He is making sure no one forgets this defeat. This guy is big time.

    What gets me the most about that loss was how much one opposing cornerback affected the Chargers ability to move the ball and score.

    I mean all we heard was Rex talking about his prized CB and the Bolts bought it and became predictable. It seemed like they had heard Rex say that the Jets were going to win so many times that they actually believed it true.

    Oh and Nate's misses didn't help.

    Everyone involved with the Chargers, from Daddy Spanos all the way through to the newest cheerleader, should be sporting one of these. :yes:

    Ole! Cromartie's "I wont play til you give me what I want" routine is going to come back and bite him in the *** someday, hopefully in an equally inopportune moment for the Jets...

    So what, because I don't believe our coach is the offensive genius that people make him out to be, that makes me not a fan? Especially since the offense is what lost us our playoff game?

    Atta boy Rivers. :tup:

    Do not let them forget the pain.

    Now Rivers does not have to worry about LT cutting his throat.

    Dude can blame LT for being saved all those pre-season games and regular season games just for LT to deliver a huge goose egg in the playoffs. :yes:

    Where can I buy one of those stickers for my car? Rivers is the man and he acts like it. I am proud to be a Chargers fan more than ever right now.
