    According to Fox Sports Radio, I have no link, the Chargers are talking to the 49er's about sending Phillip Rivers to the 49er's for the 1st overall draft pick so the Chargers can draft Braylon Edwards with the #1 pick...Did anyone else hear this or was I hearing things?

    He will be the most expensive backup QB in the NFL if he does stay with the Chargers and playes behind Brees...

    If this trade did happen though, the Chargers would have THREE first round picks, and 2 of those picks would be before we picked at the #13 spot... :shocked

    49ers should ask for an extra 2nd round pick from SD.

    Houston, again.
    I head also (ESPN radio) that they were TALKING. Makes some sense as I think Rivers would grade higher than the two top QBs this year and he has had a year to learn the NFL ways, so he SHOULD be able to hit the ground faster. Niners get a semi-experienced QB and SD unloads a heavy contract and possibly gains an extra later pick or two plus the first they used on Rivers.

    Only trouble I see with this rumor is that Rivers just rec'd a bonus on 10 Mar...it would have seemed to have made more sense to deal him before then. However, this would solidify SD's play-offs chances esp if they could get one for the SF QBs as a back-up in the deal.

    I think both teams get a good deal out of it, having 3 first round choices is crazy, they are going to get a lot of talent if it happens.

    I think the Chargers would be getting a steal if this happens...Give up a back-up QB and get the #1 overall pick? I'd be all over that...

    San Fran should at least get a 2nd rounder too...

    What does the Chargers' kicker have to do with anything? Are you trying to say they'll draft a kicker in the first to take over for their kicker that was a rookie last year? Makes little to no sense to me...

    Maybe he means that there will be no use for him anymore, IF they get Edwards, then they have a pretty stacked offensive Unit.....then they can trade back into the top 5 and draft Mike WIlliams :hmmm:

    I would imagine the 49ers would get a pick (1st or 2nd) as part of the deal.

    I am saying yes theyll use either a 1st or 2nd on a kicker because they will have 5 picks in the 1st 2 rounds I think and they need to upgrade weak postions (aka Kadeing)

    The question to me is this. Is Rivers better than Smith/Rodgers and if he is how much better? If he isnt its a good trade for SF, I dont see how SD goes wrong unless they plan to make Rivers a starter in 06' which would probably be stupid.

    You must not watch too many Chargers games. Kaeding was an extremely good kicker for a rookie. Hit the 3rd most 50+ yarders in the league. Missed only ONE of 55 extra points. I take it you make your impressions of Kaeding based on one missed playoff field goal?

    That is what he is most likely doing...


    If the 49ers were to do this trade, it would mean that they had Rivers graded higher coming out of college than both Rogers and Alex and I tend to agree with that.

    I'm calling this idle speculation on somebodys part. The Chargers are on record as saying they do not want to pay a first pick in the draft ever again, to much money and to much of the franchise can be tied to him. Also I don't think Rivers grades that much better then Smith or Rogers, especially when you take into account the style of offense the Niners run. Also If I was Sanf Fran I'd be asking for one of the Chargers other 1st round draft picks.

    As for Keading, yeah he's been pretty stable and all, but he did miss the biggest kick in his life.
