About Rivers' Taunting ...
Kind of torn on how to feel about Philip Rivers taunting of Jay Cutler.
The taunting is kind of funny on one hand, kind of in the same way that makes professional wrestling entertaining. Although, this is the equivalent of Moon Dog Rex or Leaping Lanny Poffo running his mouth. Players having that kind of gumption is cool. But only if that player is actually good. The taunting -- good natured or not -- is kind of ironic considering that Rivers is the Chargers biggest liability right now. Yes, even bigger than Norv Turner himself who has found a way to almost take himself out of the picture.
Right now, the Chargers would stand a better chance of beating the Patriots than they would the Colts. Only because the weather in New England could neutralize both quarterbacks. And 10-on-10, the Chargers are actually better than the Patriots. San Diego would be a much bigger disadvantage if they had to play the Colts indoors. You would hope that Gomer's choking would equal out, but that probably isn't the case.
So, in the end, my official feeling is that Rivers should probably just shut his mouth and keep handing the ball off to LaDainian Tomlinson. Rivers should probably look at Trent Dilfer as his hero, instead of Ric Flair.
