Rivers has shown over the years that he will get the job done when he has time in the pocket. If the talent level on the team decreases, you can't expect the same results.

This happens to everybody, it is magnified with the Chargers because they have had a tendency to make stupid mistakes at inopportune times. The production and efficiency of the quarterback is always a direct result of the entire team, other players on offense as well as the defense and special teams. It's a barometer of the entire team, not a single player.
You're watching this game right? @ Denver? Look at some of the mistakes he's made. It's on him.

Sure, Rivers gets the job done...except when he doesn't. He's made some quick & accurate plays, and he's made some horrible plays too. You can't blame the team when Rivers fails to see the guy sitting in the throwing lane.

Rivers doesn't shoulder all the blame, but he's certainly not blameless.

A couple of years ago you were making fun of Smith. Amazing how a coaching and philosophy change can cause the quarterback to play and thus look much better. The talent in San Francisco is pretty good, but Smith isn't a vastly different player. He just happens to be put in favorable situations, the coaching staff understands his limitations and plans accordingly.
Well yeah he got his ass kicked his 1st few years in the league. Now he's winning.

As long as your QB makes good decisions, he's reliable. Rivers is a question mark. He'll be here next year, because he takes more shots downfield than most younger guys. He hasn't been a very reliable decision maker in today's game.

Aaand he scores. Ok he's better than bottom 10 QB. Around the 50th percentile, maybe.

Two more picks against Denver as well as two fumbles (one of them lost). So frustrating.
