Default Phillip Rivers/Chargers - Not meant to be

http://www.chargers.com/news/headlin...?news_key=1791

My god, your not the first pick kid. He wants 1st overall money, when hes actually picked at 4th slot, and they give him more than the 2nd overall? Seems as bad as the Winslow deal. Nobody is gonna pay him 1st overall money like Manning got paid, maybe he just don't wanna play football.

Well we dont know all the details to the deal. Maybe it had alot of money for playing time, which he isnt guaranteed. You never know. Maybe the Chargers arent being straight. But then again, maybe Phillip is a spoiled brat. Who knows.

I think the Chargers have proved over and over again that they are totally inept when it comes to signing first round picks. More than likely the Chargers set a lot of incentive money, and Rivers is unhappy that the incentives are unachievable. Don't forget that the Browns said that they had made their "Best Offer" to Winslow, but have since said that they might be able to budge and make a better one. I don't blame the management or the player for trying to get the best deal for himself, but when the management went public and try to paint the guy as a bad guy it is entirely self destructive. Eventually the guy will sign, and then the Chargers will promote him around town as the 'Face of the Franchise'. Looks like Rivers could hold out longer than Winslow. Mort said that he boarded a plane back to North Carolina.

I have met Phillip Rivers and happen to be a big fan of him. He's a nice guy and pretty humble in my opinion. I don't know the details to what's going on over there in San Diego, but we also don't know why he went back to NC, what he'll be doing, or how long he'll be staying. These guys have a lot to worry about when they sign their contract...their future depends on it in some ways as well as their families. I think Winslow and Rivers will be signed by the end of preseason.

The crazy thing is, I bet the #10 pick Ben Rotheinslberger (spelling) will be better than #1 Manning and #4 Rivers.

I feel sorry for LT. The Chargers could have got him a Left Tackle to run behind for a long time and now he gets a QB that probably wont play this year....

You can call me crazy, but LT could average insane amounts of yards per carry and yards per game if the Chargers would be smart enough to get him a good line. 5.3 yards per carry with one or the worst lines in the league, that could go up to around 8 if they would have gotten a couple of good O-lineman that could open up a hole....
