    I got a laugh when Rivers threw that really high pass to Sproles. I guess he forgot that Sproles isn't 6'3 - 6'5. :lol:

    I don't know. This is the first time I recall Rivers throwing deep to Sproles. When he throws to Sproles, it's usually no further than 5-8 yards and Sproles makes it into a big play.

    Yeah, the announcers were mentioning this. Rivers was thinking he was throwing to one of his 6 footers. He tried a back-shoulder pass and Sproles couldn't reach it.

    If Rivers throws it in front of Sproles, Darren catches it and runs in for an easy TD.

    This must have been while I had to run out to the store real quick and had to follow the play by play with my cell phone. (pretty much the entire 3rd quarter)

    Or during the first part of the game when the internet stream I found that was supposed to be the Chargers game was airing the end of the Saints game instead.

    Since Rivers has basically all targets at least 6'1 (minus the backs) yeah he just must've forgotten.

    Betcha Rivers said "Damnit sorry Darren I thought you were one of my receivers"

    I doubt Rivers (or any good QB) "forgets" who they were throwing to. It's just a tougher throw to a shorter guy with shorter arms. He missed on that one, no big deal. I've seen him do that to Sproles a couple of times this season and LT maybe once last season. We've also seen both of them make catches other RBs wouldn't.

    I know it was no big deal... it was just funny.
