  1. Is Philip Rivers a HoF QB?

    To put some context to the stats... 2006 - Lost to Pats who ranked 2nd in points against and 6th in yards against that year. 2007 - Beat Titans who ranked 8th in points against and 5th in yards against that year. Beat Colts who ranked 1st in points against and 3rd in yards against that year. Lost to Pats who ranked 4th in points against and 4th in yards against that year. 2008 - Beat Colts who ranked 7th in points against and 11th in yards against that year. Lost to Steelers who ranked 1st in points against and 1st in yards against that year. 2009 - Lost to Jets who ranked 1st in points against and 1st in yards against that year. 2013 - Beat Bengals who ranked 6th in points against and 3rd in yards against that year. Lost to Broncos who ranked 22nd in points against and 19th in yards against that year. 2018 - Beat Ravens who ranked 2nd in points against and 1st in yards against that year. Lost to Pats who ranked 7th in points against and 21st in yards against that year. So in 11 playoff games he only faces a D who was worse than 8th in points against 1 time. Two of his losses come against teams who had the top ranked D points against and yards against. Also look at who he has lost to in the playoffs. Brady/Belichick account for 1/2 of his post season losses. The others were against Peyton Manning led Broncos or the teams who had the best defenses those years. While I'm not saying he played amazing, he definitely did not, he has usually had a very tough road in the AFC playoffs no matter what year it was. He also has rarely had other individuals step up in the playoffs to help compared to some other players who have had post season success.

  3. Anthony Davis Demands Trade

    Its actually pretty easy to do that. As for that trade, it would obviously include future picks going towards NO. Let them tank and build towards the future with a handful of picks over the next couple years.

  5. I see Rivers going 2 more years, MAYBE 3. He said he wants to play in the new stadium. I am with you though. I caught a lot of hell today at work about how they played but the fact that we went 12-4 with some huge road wins I am happy overall with the year. Seems they have moved on from a lot of the "typical Chargers" stuff and Lynn has changed the mentality. I'm looking forward to the future and the team has a lot of young studs to build upon. Get this line shored up and some healthy linebackers then maybe we can have a miracle.
  6. I don't think its as much Whiz as Gus went from an amazing gameplan vs Ravens to... forgetting to show up. The problem on offense is what it has been for years, the offensive line being dominated. Chargers have very good skill players but they can't work if the line doesn't block especially with the interior pressures. They tried to stock up 2 years ago with the "top 2" guards in the draft, one just isn't very good and the other appears to have lost all ability after the ACL tear before they played a snap in the NFL.
  7. Looks like Hunter Henry is active... can't wait to see how they decided to use him. Even if its just in the red zone, he will help. Also... are we ready to give up on Lamp? I mean the dude has been a healthy scratch most of the year.

    Luka... I mean what else can you say about the kid? He plays so smooth and effortlessly. So fun to watch, quite the character.
  9. Chargers and cold weather

    Only time they can struggle to move the ball would be if the wind is high since Rivers doesn't have the strongest arm (never has). Cold shouldn't bother a majority of the guys, especially someone like Gordon who played at Wisconsin.
  10. Curious how many snaps Hunter Henry will get? Rivers said he was very close to playing at the Ravens. My guess is they held him out because of the play style they wanted for the Ravens rather than health. Getting someone like that should have a huge impact on the offense, similar to Bosa coming back to this defense late in the year. I'm ready to see this Chargers team run the table and get all of those years of "what ifs" behind them. Let Rivers and Gates hold that trophy up together...
  11. Give me the team that was 11-2 over the final 13 games of the season. (cherry picking stats is fun!)
  12. Per Coach Lynn, Hunter Henry will be working with the first team offense this week in practice. He has only been working with the scout team up till now. Getting HH back for the playoffs could be huge even if he isn't quite 100% yet. He is a much larger threat when on the field than a 38yo Gates. This could be the kick in the tail the Chargers offense needed the last couple weeks.
  13. Rookie watch thread, other than Doncic

    Luka is just on another level. Hard to believe he is only 19.
  14. Chargers Regular/Pre Season thread

    Now that KC lost... I'm a little more sick over the Ravens loss. That was a typical Chargers choke with Gates coughing up the ball on what was going to be the game winning drive. Rivers gets a bad rap over the years for not being able to have those meaningful 4th quarter comebacks but this is usually how it ends... someone else making mistakes that make it not happen. He holds on to that ball through that punch and they continue down to score a TD then we are currently sitting #1 in the AFC. Our line has definitely been on the downward trend. All the pressure up the middle is what hurts Rivers the most because he can't step into throws. Getting that fixed (Lamp?) is going to be key to a long run in the playoffs.
