    <img src="http://bolttalk.com/images/rivers01.jpg" class="left" alt="Philip Rivers" />SAN DIEGO ---- Quarterback Philip Rivers was once considered the Chargers' gold nugget. But might his appearance against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night be his last as a Charger?

    "It could be,'' Rivers said.

    Here's the train of thought that reaches that conclusion:

    The Chargers' offense is loaded, built to make a Pro Bowler out of its quarterback. If Drew Brees comes anywhere near his amazing 2004 season and leads the Chargers to the playoffs again, is it plausible to speculate the Chargers would dump him and infuriate their fans before seeking their votes for a new stadium? So, under that premise, Rivers could be peddled and Brees awarded the long-term deal he lusts for next offseason.</blockquote>
