Gruden also said at the start of the season John Beck was a good QB. Every fan in DC was laughing at him.

Rivers is having a terrible year, and I have never met a Chargers fan who is happy that Norv Turner is the head coach.

Rivers is a very good quarterback and I'm happy he's a Charger. We need to get rid of Norv and AJ.

I miss having Sproles.

I didn't like Gruden in OAKville.

Disliked him in his "here I am, win my a Champeenship" in Tampa.

Don't like him as an announcer.


Philly-boy did well last night, gave me 23 Fantasy points. I never had a prayer, tho. Too many single-digit players this week. I'm out. :(

The guy is a sports announcer. I'm not. He gets paid big bucks to say intelligent things about the game, not stupid or obvious things.

Let me give it a shot though..."Well folks, Philip Rivers should have a pretty good game tonight since the Jaguars are horrible and probably couldn't beat the Colts. And what do you expect from a team with a Q-B named Blaine? Reminds me of one of the guys from In Living Color, Blaine Edwards. So Jaws, what do you suppose they call him in the locker room, Blaine or Gabby? Ah, disregard, are you drunk? You don't make much sense anyway.
Anyway, we hope the calls by the refs won't be drowned out by the fans booing...well, wait, there aren't enough fans to make that much noise. This team is definitely a work in progress. On the bright side, Gabby has only thrown 7 interceptions, that's 10 less than Rivers."

How'd I do?
:thumbsup: I'd listen to you.

Rivers gets the yards, but you can't be considered the best if you're throwing that many interceptions. Every interception you throw, vegas says the odds of your team winning is decreased by roughly 33%. These interceptions are the reason the chargers don't have a winning record, and Phillip Rivers is to blame.

Brady averages more passing yards(by about 45), has thrown fewer interceptions (7 less), and has a winning record. He is the leader of the AFC.

The QB gets the stat but he is not always responsible for the all the interceptions. Plenty of other factors cause interceptions, the two biggest are O-line failures allowing pressure in the pocket and bad routes by receivers. SD has been plagued by both this season.

I couldn't believe my ears...on tonight's MNF pregame show, Gruden,

There is a reason GrudenDoofus is on MNF and NOT COACHING.






Even his Superbowl win was phony. He took the team Tony Dungy built, and every year thereafter they just descended back into the GrudenBasement.

The only thing left for him to do besides MNF was gay porn and he should have taken that and spared us all our monday nights with the sound down.

John Madden, I remember him. On Thanksgiving day when cowboys were playing, Aikman was putting a contact back in on the sidelines ....

"Now here's a guy, that when he puts his contacts in, he sees better". That was it. No follow up. No punch line.

Hey now! We beat the Colts 17-3....

But you're right about the rest of the stuff....

I can't wait till the new owner moves this bunch of bums to L.A.
