The bigger douche part is just assumed. With Vick in prison and Pacman in exile there is no bigger douche in the NFL.

If i had to choose from that list i would say he is more like Kordell but without the scrambling ability.

Rivers is better than all of those stiffs in the poll.

He might be a jerk off the field etc but is a pretty good QB.
We dont have to like him but his is not a stiff IMO

Guilty as Charged. I detest him with every fibre of my being. This being the time of Year between the Draft and Training Camp, i.e. Football Purgatory, I am temporarily reduced to thinking of new ways to heap abuse on this human Dingleberry.

maybe a jerk and loser as a person but not a bad QB.

now Rex Grossman is a stiff for you.

worst QB to ever start a QB in history and I still remmber his punt like interception vs the Colts. very :pound:

I certainly agree that Grossman is a stiff. No argument there at all; whats pathetic for the Bears is that Kyle Orton is even more awful. In fairness, Rivers is better than a number of QB's in the League. Kyle Orton, for example. Tavaris Jackson. Alex Smith, etc.

We've not seen how Mr. Rivers handles life without an All-star surrounding cast, as he has now. I see Jeff George in his future given his makeup.

Med, his attitude aside, he really hasn't shown me anything or done enything that impresses as far as I'm concerned.

We'll see this year.

Stop raining on the parade, Med. Next warning = we banish to the secret forum where we put the Chugger/Pats trolls. After that it is off to the double secret forum with the Clowns/Faiders trolls. I like you, but I will pull the trigger...don't make me.

Thank you, Mike. I think Med. forgot that we are under no obligation to be in any way fair or objective here, but I don't think he meant any harm at all. This is a place to vent spleen.

He probably has more wins than Jeff George has his whole career already:eek:

Part of the reason is that he's got a defense also.

If you switch Phillips Rivers and Rex Grossman, both teams have pretty close to the same records as before the switch.

agreed. rex has nothing to work with in chicago, put philip there and he looks just as bad, put rex in SD and they make the playoffs.

philip is just there to not eff up what LT, gates, and chambers have going for them.

Agreed. I think Uncle Rico is a terrible QB, but still preferable to Philip, just based on not being a complete Wanker.

I was recently noodling through the interweb and found this http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/2008-06-05-preseason-fantasy-rankings_N.htm#quarterbacks

This ranks Rivers as the 9th best QB in fantasy and Cutler 11th.

Hey, I'll let Phyllis be a better fantasy QB any day. Cutler can be the better real life QB.

Thats a real interesting thought; both you and Tubby had that one, and I think you guys are on to something. I never thought much of McMahon at all; he piggybacked onto that amazing 85 team to get himself a ring, but he was very far from being what drove the Bears. Mostly he flapped his gums while Walter Payton and the defense won football games.

We can surmise that he is a jerk off and on the field. That makes him a full time jerk.
