By the way, there was one guy who thought that Rivers would be the next Dan Fouts...unfortunately, he was also convinced that Drew Henson was the next Tom Brady...

I'm still trying to figure out how somebody can be considered a bust when they haven't even played a full season?

I'm obviously "projecting" him to be a bust. All in all, I could really care less, since the important thing was that we didn't draft him.

No, I wasn't meaning you. Projecting him to be a bust and already stating he is a bust are two different issues. One can be debated and other remains to be seen.

Hey BBFW Chargers fans forget Big Ben made it to the AFC Championship Game in his rookie year then won the Super Bowl the next year. I guess the higher pick sometimes doesn't always payoff.

I like how you know 100% certain he will be a bust before him ever having a good amount on consistant playing time. There is almost nothing on Rivers that can prove him to be a bust unless you think that playing bad in college makes you bad in the NFL (ala Ryan Leaf). I'm not saying he will be a god, but with any information we DO have it would suggest he wouldn't be a bust. Unless you want to make up random bullcrap to make your bust theory seem valid.
hmmmm.....interesting....just a few months ago,you weren't too high on rivers taking over.....remember this???

My Rant

Ok, since the people at most Chargers boards seem to think that Aj Smith is a genious and all, I can't really get an honest opinion, so maybe I can get it from Steeler fans. Here's what I posted at a Chargers board:


Quote:
Is it just me, or is Aj always looking WAY to far into the future. With the way he handles things, it doesn't really look like the Chargers will ever be fully re-built SB caliber team before Tomlinson retires. Last year we were SO close. So what does Aj do? Refuses to sign one of the biggest peices of the puzzle, Brees. And I really doubt he'll sign a veteren like we need, instead opting to get a ****ing young player that doesn't know what the hell he's doing. Whenver he does get a young player, right when they are FINALLY developed he RELEASES THEM. I know some people call him a genious when it comes to being an owner, but i'm sick of it. GOD DAMNIT AJ

I think we need Marty to stand in his face for a half hour yelling "ONE SEASON AT A TIME, ONE SEASON AT A TIME, ONE SEASON AT A TIME, ONE SEASON AT A TIME..."



Please, tell me i'm not crazy.


so why are you so quick too bash others,for the lack of confidence in rivers,that you had yourself???

That's right, I remember that game. That was the game where the refs let the Chargers have a "do over" punt return. There were several other horrible calls in that game as well against the Steelers, but, being the far superior team, they prevailed regardless of the adversity.

Wasn't that also the game where Tomlinson said that the opposing team had the best run defense he'd ever faced?

I think it was...

Was it "luck" that held Tomilinson to 62 rushing yards?

So get over it, you lost.
