    It seems that all the parties involved agree:

    The Chargers want Philip Rivers, and Rivers wants to be here.

    So... What's the effing holdup on getting his new deal done? :icon_shrug:

    Surely the team doesn't intend to allow Rivers' to hit the open market after the 2009 season... does it?!?

    I never understood what that (QFT) means (nor Church M'fer for that matter) :icon_shrug:

    Anyway, I agree it will get done, hopefully Philip and maybe 1 or 2 more players will get done befor the season (VJ, McNeil, Merriman, et.)

    Church is like 'Word'! a statement of strong agreement.

    ie "Man I can't stand raiders fans."
    "Church M'Fer!"

    Hope that helps.
    A L33T guy like you shuold know that stuff bro!:lol:

    thanks, although I think my english is good enough and my knowledge of your pop culture is also good, sometimes I just don't know certain references because I never use them. :icon_toast:

    They need to get the Sproles contract numbers locked down and there is the small matter of a #16 pick to address. I expect that talks are already underway and will pick up speed this summer. I would not be surprised to see a deal done before this season starts. Unless Sproles signs, I don't expect to hear squat out of the Chargers front office until draft weekend.

    Go Chargers!!!

    He'll get his mother f"n check in Charger Ville
    Thats my lingo...

    Also in light of Cutler leaving the AFC West, I thought this would be appropriate...

    I think they're probably trying to work on Sproles deal, but I wouldn't expect any deal before the draft and a while afterwords. The Giants are trying to sign Eli as well so they probably want to see what one another might get.

    Now that Cutler has been traded the Rivers camp will probably wait until a deal gets done with Cutler and or Eli Manning to see what they need to be milking AJ for.

    Other than Eli winning a SB, Rivers has put up bigger numbers than both. So he has the leverage on AJ to wait until deals get done with both of them to see what he is worth.

    My guess is that it will get done during preseason.
    Just like getting him signed in the beginning.

    The thing I found funniest about that is that the press has been pounding Rivers for that like crazy... yet they still can't tell us a thing he said.

    Big Ben's deal is the current benchmark and Eli's deal is also being talked about as well. Just gonna take time when you are talking about 100+ Million contract.
