Until you put a guy in a system you don't know if that's going to be a better fit for him or not. Changing the scenery helps careers every year. It's stupid to just write off the chance that it could happen here and it's sad to think that we're so locked into the handful of things one guy does well that almost no one is willing to entertain the idea of a change to try and better the situation.
Not disagreeing with your change of scenery point but I will say Rivers' increased mobility is something of a mirage as he has been noted to have horrible decision making when flushed. For example he threw one of the most bone-headed pick sixes ever earlier this season - just threw it straight at a DB with no receiver anywhere around instead of just throwing the ball out of bounds.
