Some think Rivers is down to his last chance in San Diego
There’s an asterisk that applies to that school of thought. If the quarterback that a new coach has inherited lands on the short list of NFL franchise quarterbacks, the new coach has no issue with the status quo.
The biggest question in San Diego is whether Philip Rivers still falls on the presumptive do-not-cut-trade-or-bench list. Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego believes 2013 will be Rivers’ “final audition” with the Chargers. Tom Adams of the same publication believes that, if Rivers is indeed playing for his job, he’ll pass the test.
OMG, who would have ever possibly thought that Rivers may not be the apple of the new Chargers regime's eye? Oh yeah, I did. I had more to say here, too. In fact, I've been saying Rivers isn't a franchise QB for a few years now. Good luck getting rid of a putative "franchise QB" when he sucks again in 2013, suckers. The only thing the Chargers have going for them is that their fan base is so crappy and apathetic that not many people may even notice.
