Default Drew Who?

I knew it was a aginast the Titans, but daaaaaamn Rivers is looking good.

25 / 35, 235 YDSm 1 TD, 0 INT

This should shut some people up at least.

Well you didn't the draft day trade for Rivers just for him to sit on the bench. He is playing really well. But Drew Brees isn't doing to bad himself. He had an hell of game today and has the Saints off to a 2-0 start.

Brees did do pretty well, but he still had some of the same problems he always did. Like fumbling as he is about to throw, that happens to him a lot more than any other QB i've seen (I think it might be his height).

But still, i'm so happy Rivers is tearing it up right now. After we have this bye week, we can see how he does against a real defense in the Baltimore Ravens.

Rivers looking good against two of the worst teams in the league in Oakland and Tennessee should be expected.
I agree that it has to make Chargers fans excited to see him play well so far.
I'll hold further opinion until he plays against some stiffer competition and when the pressure is on him to make plays to win games.

I know he hasn't played a whole lot of talent yet, but I know there were people that thought he would struggle his first two games no matter who is he playing. Obviously i'm extremely happy with him right now, but very anxious to see how he does against a very good defense like the Ravens.

And his passes are sooo tight compared to Brees. It almost doesn't look like they are spinning.

C'mon even more than Culpepper?

Anyway, I still maintain that the Chargers have the game to go all the way this year - its just their coach they have to account for in the post season.

You couldnt ask for a much better support crew for a 'rookie' QB than Gates and Tomlinson - I think he will continue to improve week on week.

You are right though - the Titans are a truly awful team.

Marty is due to break through sooner or later.

The Chargers seem to be the class of the West so far. I'm not sure if that's a credit to them or a shot against the rest of division.

There was a certain coach last season that "couldn't win the big one", but he seemed to do all right. I never really care when people say Marty sucks in the post-season, only one team can win it a year and it's soon to be his year.

those who are quick to label someone with the "choker" tag (shottenheimer, cowher, p. manning) are probably too young to remember john elway and his back to back superbowls. shottenheimer is just as likely to win it as anyone else providing the preformance on sundays with a little luck. noone has won without either.

im not too impressed with rivers preformance cause i didnt really expect much less. marty is bringing him along fine and lt is the best thing since marshall faulk.

those who quickly apply the choker tag probably forget when faulk went to one of the worst teams in the league and led them to sb glory.

better the chargers than anyone else in that division.

Of course its no guarantee that he cant get it done, but he does have a poor history in that area.

Look.
