    1. San Diego Chargers

    Who: QB Philip Rivers; RBs LaDanian Tomlinson, Darren Sproles

    Add/subtract: When you have the NFL's top-rated passer and two backs combining for 1,440 rush yards, 81 receptions and 18 TDs, you don't need to add much. The Chargers went big on power, drafting two offensive linemen and two defensive linemen with their first four picks. Of course, getting Shawne Merriman back may be the biggest "add" of all.

    Questionable: How much longer can L.T. continue being L.T.? And will Rivers' maturity finally match his talent? Maybe more to the point, if Merriman and that defense start setting up this backfield on short fields, how good can this team be?

    The thought: Rivers and the Bolts got a delicious taste of what it feels like when it all comes together. And L.T., one of the great tailbacks in NFL history, has at least one year left, and his understudy would start for more than a few clubs.

    The Vikings at 16? Eh?

    Is it because they're counting QB?

    Yeah, it's backfields not running backs.

    One of the top two RB plus one of the bottom two QB; #16 sounds about right.

    What is this continued **** about Rivers' maturity? Just cause he has fun with the game does not make him immature. I seriously doubt that anyone who has spent more than five minutes with Rivers would ever call him immature.

    Sometimes perception is reality; the media made such a big point to make Rivers out to be such an immature prick; especially for the spat with ****ler but you know actions are louder than words so all Rivers has done from that point forth is be about it not talk about it; ****ler has what been crying like a little ***** and abandoned his team.

    Our team is going to kill it and I can't wait!!! :abq2:

    No kidding, the guy made 14 mil last year and he still rocks a mini van.:LOL:
    I think its just lazy journalism, nobody is bothering to do any work themselves they just go back and read the BS stories about him in 2007.........you know.......the year he led us to the AFC Championship and played the full game on a torn ACL? Yep, very immature of him.:whistling:

    It's a simple equation...

    media = (fans + money) - knowledge x Patriots

    What I dont get is most of this came about in the Cuttler deal. Yeah he jawed one year and last year was a model citizen. Just goes to show that people write about people they dont watch.
