Default Philip Rivers anyone?

That seems to be the only QB besides Vick that could be available for next year. It seems San Diego is ready to start over. I was looking at the contract status for Rivers vs Schaub.

http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/san-diego...philip-rivers/

http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/houston-texans/matt-schaub/

He is more expensive than Schaub, and it appears that Schaub's contact is more friendly dollar wise for the next two years. Given that would you want to trade for a 31 year old QB that is more mobile and has a better arm than than current 31 year old QB? Or do you suck it up for the next two years and hope to draft or trade for a QB? I don't see how it makes sense to pay Schaub $17million in 2015 if those numbers are right.

To me, IMHO, could have some left in the tank and a change could do him good. He seems to have more of leadership quality than Schaub but more of a douche attitude at times like Cutler. I would do a 2013 2nd round and 2014 2nd round and rework his contract for the rest of his 3 years, maybe extend to 4 years. Probably wouldn't happen, but I would try it. But then again, maybe that is why I am not a GM.

What do yall think? Would you try to go after Rivers?

Yes please. His team fell apart around him due to a crappy GM and he's a fiery guy who could light a fire under our guys when needed.

No way in hell the chargers get rid of rivers. No coach with any credentials like a cowher or gruden will come into a situation not knowing who their qb is. I think most coaches would agree that rivers is a top talent and can be a top 5 qb if he is on his game.

Highly doubtful Rivers goes anywhere. He had little in the way of weapons this season and still was decent out there. He is the one thing that could lure a prime coaching candidate to that job so getting rid of him would be a heavy risk.

They pretty much summed up how I feel. Rivers is the main drawing card to get a quality replacement coach for Norv T.

Since Rivers is still under contract, that means a trade would have to be worked. What would we have to give up to get him?? A 1st and several 2nds? Multiple 1st rounders?? This would smack of a desperation move so the SD GM would be bargaining from a position of strength. I understand wanting to make a move, but finding someone in the draft would be more sensible and less costly.

This. I'd jump at it but it won't happen. Nobody in their right mind would trade Rivers away to get Schaub.

Rivers for Schaub? I don't know if it would be an improvement or not, but it would be a change. I don't think we would lose anything with Rivers, just not so sure we would gain anything either.

Schaub, Rivers, Cutler, Romo are all in the "same dog different fleas" category. they are clearly not in the elite guys, and clearly better than the mutts of the league like Sanchez, and Cassel. The fans in other cities hate their guy as much as many Texans' fans hate Schuab.

Sometimes different is good; sometimes its change for change sake.

He's just as immobile as schaub, and a gunslinging TO/fumble machine.

All we'd do is switch our qb issues from limited mobility underthrowing noodle armed passes to limited mobility river boat gambler dumb ass passes....
