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....

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.

Hell no to the dog killer.

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.

Rivers ****ing sucks! Rivers has more turnovers than Vick since the start of last season. This season he threw 15 picks and had 15 fumbles.

great post...i think many here just don't understand this.

If it were Romo that had been here fans here would almost assuredly be complaining about his propensity to turn the ball over at the most inopportune time...see last night

If Vick was here, fans would be complaining about his inability to be a consistent pocket passer......& him being injury prone..

All of these guys have warts & combined with Kubiak's ineptitude and the fiery/*********gery of some of these guys, there'd probably be a little locker room turmoil too.

I don't think Rivers is anywhere close to All-Pro, but if you are wanting your starting QB to be one of those 3 you listed then you need to listen to advice from Lawrence Taylor.

Note: Statistics appear here in liberal quantities due to the fact that every time someone points out that Schaub is a problem someone leaps out with a statistic they claim proves otherwise. Well, here's how Schaub stacks up to Rivers....statistically.

And actually MEGA SWATT, Schaub looks a lot more like Romo statistically than Rivers does.

I'd love it if the Chargers fans hated their guy enough to trade him for Schaub. A lot of this Rivers criticism is blowing smoke. I'd take that guy in a heartbeat over the gimp. He's a great deal more mobile than Schaub, he's got a lot more arm too. His TD/INT is 189/81 vs Schaub's 120/70 over the same period of time and he sat for two years to Schaub's three. 3 times Rivers has finished with a QB rating over 100, Schaub has never done it and never will.

Rivers has done his business while being sacked 219 times. Schaub who we all pity so much because of the abuse he takes behind our terrible line has been sacked 151 times.

Frankly there's no comparison. One guy attacks the other team and practically bleeds desire to win while the other slogs through the plays he's given like he's calf-deep in mud.

It will never happen but all these posts ragging on Rivers are ridiculous. Rivers will get out of Norv Turner Hell and be back on top long before Matt Schaub ever figures out how to hit a WR in stride.

That's what cowboys fans thought when Phillips was let go...2 years later he's throwing picks at the worst possible time. he's been in the league long enough..we know what he is...a turnover machine.

Default Re: Philip Rivers anyone?

Throw Roethlisberger in there and check out his TD/INT ratio. 191/108. Is he a turnover machine? All of these guys are 2/1 or in that neighborhood but where things really get ugly is when they throw the pick. None of them are turnover machines but Romo is known for throwing the pick at the worst possible time. Schaub's getting there quickly.
