    Was NOT the reason we lost. NOT. EVEN. CLOSE.

    Gimme a ****ing break.

    Anyone who says so is a ****ing idiot and needs to have their head examined. Dude was trying to save this pathetic team by putting it all on his back (and he damned near did it too) and made a misread. Without Rivers kicking *** all over the field yesterday, we get SMOKED.

    He shouldn't have to pitch the perfect game for us to win.

    I was about to bash you for blaming it on him when i saw the title.

    This is exactly what i've talking about. So when people say "this one is on river" No it ****ing isn't it's on the defense.

    If you want to blame anything on that drive it was not getting the play in when we the play clock was stopped and we had to burn a TO. You could tell by the way Rivers was acting that they hadn't gotten anything in. If we have that extra TO we get the ball back with 45-50 seconds left or so (however, they wouldn't have taken the safey then).

    Of course he feels bad, he has HEART, something the D knows nothing about. Also, of course he's not gonna dis his teammates, because he has CHARACTER, something else the D doesn't know **** about.

    It was clearly a reason we lost but far from the only reason we lost

    Rivers can't be expected, nor can any QB, to throw perfect games just to ensure the team have a chance to win a game. The defense has to step up and they can be blamed for at least 90% of the loss

    That INT hurt. I was so confident that we would tie the game up just like in Buffalo. PR made bad decisions throwing in coverage in both games. Besides, even if we do score at that point. It; preety much guaranteed that both the Bills and the Saints drive right down the field to kick the game winning FG.

    I agree RTL.

    The D did not show up for 3Qs. That is why we lost that game.

    Rivers both times said he was trying to make something happen when there wasn't. He's trying to do too much because he has no other option. He's made mistakes without a doubt but he gets no help from anyone

    I have no doubt that Rivers is pressing to make up for the "D" being so bad. The guy is a winner, and he will try anything to win. A little more experience, and he will avoid some of these key interceptions. Still a learning year for PR.

    fixed

    Rivers, along with the entire offense, has to play error free football AND score a td every time they get the ball in order for us to stay in games.

    ****ing weak.

    granted it was VERY untimely for him to throw a pick, it should have never come down to it. one play should NEVER make or break your team, nor should one player. now, lets be real, the defense was the real problem.

    Why not a TO on first down and the LT option pass? Perfect time for it. It hadn't been used all season.

    Rivers lost this game for the Bolts. He couldn't get the ball snapped before the playclock expired numerous times, he almost got a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for slamming the ball down, and then he threw the pick into triple coverage. He played good all game but he chokes in the clutch, just like he did against the Bills the week before.

    Just like Cutler choked against the Chargers, except Hoculi gave him the heimlich maneuver and wouldn't let him die. SHould have been TWO turnovers in the red zone.

    Rivers has plenty of 4th quarter comebacks in his young career, you can't win them all. Maybe you just haven't watched football the last two years because your team has sucked for it (PS it still does, but fortunately for you (and us) the rest of the WEst sucks too)


    Oh yeah, at least know how to spell your team's name.

    Rivers kept us in the game this past Sunday and last Sunday.

    This is the ONLY thing I'll give him some criticism for...
    Last Sunday against the Bills... It's first down. If nobody is open, throw it away.
    This past Sunday... It's third down. If you don't connect, we still get another shot.

    Now I agree that he's not getting any help from the defense and that it shouldn't always come to this but I have just one thing to say to Rivers...
    Unless it's 4th down, there is no need to force it.
