    Rivers throws like a girl.

    Am I the only one who noticed this? I don't mean that he's a bad quarterback. He just has the weirdest throwing motion.

    It reminds me of when you're playing football with your friends in the park and the ball gets away. So you yell 'HELP', and sure enough, the closest person to the football is a girl. She examines it for 5 seconds, wondering what on earth the object could possibly be, and how one could even attempt to grip it.

    When she finally does throw the ball back, it looks EXACTLY LIKE Philip Rivers throwing the ball.

    My one concern is that Revis doesn't start cracking up when the ball comes his way or he might drop the interception.

    I'm surprised this is the first post I've seen this week saying this (I don't read every message). I agree, I see the same thing, it looks like he's pushing the ball forwward instead of throwing it.

    As bad as it looks, he does manage to have a ton of success throwing like that, and he should not be underestimated.

    I hate his throwing motion. It looks like he's shot putting the football. But the kid can throw it, I don't know how.

    It's definitely one of the strangest throwing motions I've ever seen, but it's working for him. Kid's been impressive this season.














    but yes, he throws like a girl.

    All that notwithstanding, he's brash, he's tough, and he's got a great arm. We just need to the defense to show up in their very best form to win this game.

    yeah I heard Chargers are run like a high school football team and still use bullet board material. I also heard they find comments from their opposing teams message board to fire up their players.
