‘How you doin’ PR?’
That’s right, Phillip Rivers is now a single, swinging man and everybody wants a piece!
Just to clarify, he is happily married-but without a team.
So where could he end up next year?
Loads of teams might be looking to snag this handsome QB, and get them to lead their team, but is he worth it?
-He’s an 8 time Pro Bowl nominee
-He had a PR of 105.5 average in 2018
-He was a first round draft pick in 2004
-His career PR of 96.0 is 8th best
-He’s 38 years old
-He’s played for 17 seasons
-He has never won a SuperBowl
-He deteriorated hugely in 2019
-He might have had all of his motivation sapped.
So who would want, and who would need a player like Rivers? Here are a few teams that might want to give him a look see.
The Colts ran outta Luck in 2019, or he ran out of them-causing a huge sinkhole in their future. Jacoby Brissett played well in his absence, but is he the guy you want to structure a team around?
With a crowded floor of losers looking for a QB in the NFL Draft 2020, it might be a leap to expect that they can get anyone good. The Colts have enough weapons leftover from this year, including an underused TY Hilton who would thrive under Rivers. The O Line played fantastically, so he would have time-something that the Chargers couldn’t give him.
More importantly, he would have home fans.
Haven’t had those in a while.
Are we looking at a wham-bam-thank you Cam dynasty in Carolina? With a woeful season in 2019, the Panthers cleaned house in many ways and are looking for someone who can carry the team forward. Sure, Christian McCaffrey carried the team on his back, but image if he ever got hurt? They would be screwed royally.
Rivers was born in Alabama, so it might make sense to return closer to home in an NFC team.
He could be a good fit with the team, and is a born leader that could motivate the team in tough situations.
Yes, the Bears have Mitch Trubisky. But Chicago is seeing some of the worst gun violence in recent decades. If random people are getting shot so frequently, imagine what a target someone like Trubisky makes? Rivers wouldn’t be anybody’s back-up, and this is just conjecture-but what an addition he would make for this team! Bears fans are fuming after their D was essentially let down by a lacklustre offence this season, so it would serve them well to get a winner in the pocket just in case.
You filthy slut! Going to a division rival? Dirty girl. While PR would be a great alternative to the trash bags that Elway continues to chuck on the field, there is NO WAY that they would trade him to a division rival. It would be an interesting fit though. The Broncos have an emerging running game, and if they drafted a bulked up O Line, he could have time to torch the opposition with ease. No way that Chargers would do this, but it would be an interesting trade to see through. Maybe try it on Madden and see how it goes?
Dwayne Haskins is fun to watch. That doesn’t mean he is necessarily good, just fun to watch.
The Redskins played plucky football this season, and they weren’t totally out of every game, even though they were on the ass end of a losing season. They will draft well next year, and just need that missing element to get them up the division. Heck, 4 more wins this season and they could have won the sucker, so it won’t take much to usurp the top dawgs in this filthy pound.
San Angeles Los Chargers
Who are they and where do they play again? Since the team left the sunny fields of San Diego, the ship has sunk faster than the Titanic. Loyal fans were pissed the team was moved, and they took it out by not going to the games. LA fans already had the Raiders and Rams, so why would you want a golden haired stepchild to add to the mix? The Chargers could offer PR another 2 year contract to keep him in til he’s 40. But is he really motivated? Sure, he has 17 kids in school in the area, so he may not want to move. But maybe a mid-life crisis is necessary?
