    Scouts Inc. “Experts” Hate on Philip Rivers

    In “speculating” who is the new up & coming King of Quarterbacks with Tom Brady gone for the season & Peyton Manning struggling, five so-called experts focused on 5 young QBs and rated them on various topics..the 5 were Jay Cutler, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger & Tony Romo.

    They voted on the best quarterback in that group, and discussed other intangibles but they all struggled to find anything good to say about Philip, rating him as the worst of the 5.

    The entire lengthy article is included here: Big Ben the NFL's heir apparent to Brady and Manning

    Roethlisberger and Manning - each have a Super Bowl ring.
    Romo - Think they're going to talk bad about a Cowboy?
    Cutler - They're not going to talk bad about a Bronco either.
    Rivers - Safer to criticize without getting blasted by the NFL.


    If Rivers was a Cowboy, they'd crawl up his a** and call him God.
    If Rivers was a Bronco, the the love he'd receive from the press would make Cutler look like Leaf.

    Exactly.
    You're talking about New York, Dallas, Pittsburgh and Denver.......what chance does Rivers have in the lower left corner of the US to get a fair shake at anything?

    A friend of mine who is a Steelers fan brought up a point.
    Imagine if LT was a Cowboy or Giant. Not even non-football fans would be able to avoid him. Now don't get me wrong. He gets his fair share of props but do you think the NFL wants to endorse the Chargers?

    If he was a Giant or Cowboy, he'd have Michael Jordan type of endorsements.
    Every Nike billboard in every city.
    A clothing line named after him.
    Cartoons
    Movies
    Fast Food Commercials
    You name it.

    Think his agents wanted him to sign that contract in 2004 with the Chargers?
    Not too likely but they realized that they can't make him do all these other things off the field and he's not going elsewhere.

    LT FREAKIN' RULES!!!

    in my 52 years on this green planet, I will never, ever, understand why the motherland never gets any props.

    Is it because we are to close to Mexico to deserve respect?

    maybe it's jealously, the rest of this damn country is jealous, that's gotta be it!!!

    It's pretty hilarious how ECry is getting all kinds of love for his "laid back" demeanor when just a year or so ago people were citing his lack of fire as a negative.

    It just goes to show you how f*cking stupid some of these slack jawed media types are. Since ECry rode his defense to a Super Bowl he gets no shortage of love.

    Holy cow! Now I know why Gary Horton rates ECry so high:
