    Playoff loss sticks with Rivers

    [QUOTE]Playoff loss sticks with Rivers
    March, 29, 2010
    By Bill Williamson

    This is why I respect Philip Rivers so much.

    [URL="http://www.chargers.com/news/article-1/News--Notes-from-Chargers-Park/e6291e39-ebb9-447f-b11c-572f152c808c"]Chargers.com[/URL] has a great nugget that illustrates what a huge leader Rivers is in San Diego.

    Rivers is driving around San Diego with a decal on the back of his truck displaying final score -- 17-14 -- of the Chargersí shocking loss to the New York Jets in the AFC divisional playoffs.

    Thatís awesome.

    It shows Rivers has taken total ownership of the loss and he is doing his job as the unquestioned leader of the team to make sure his teammates do the same thing. It has to be a shock of humiliation when Rivers sees that decal every time he gets into his truck. Itís a daily reminder of the devastating loss. Riversí decision to get the decal made shows it still haunts him and he is literally carrying the loss with him every day.

    San Diego entered the game with 11 straight wins and as the hottest team in the NFL heading into the playoffs. But several San Diego players, including Rivers, had less-than-stellar games as the Jets took over the game late.

    This is why Rivers is one of the best leaders in the NFL. He is making sure no one forgets this defeat. This guy is big time.

    By the way, check out the entire link. Itís filled with interesting Chargersí tidbits.[/QUOTE]

    Enjoy...

    My favorite non-Jet player in the league and easily the best QB from the 04 draft.

    I wonder if Nate Kaeding is riding around with the same thing.

    Philip Rivers copied this from Chad Pennington, who has so many stickers he had to buy a whole new car.

    Big time? I think he's a dope.

    The Chargers are soft and they have a huge cloud over them, they constantly dwell on choking...

    That's exactly the same thing they did when they lost against the Pats.

    Rivers should know this, dwelling on this kind of stuff, doesn't make you better.

    Sure he's a decent QB, but his ego is the size of Grand Canyon.
    He obviously thinks SD was the best team last year...

    Personally, I'd be annoyed if the Sanchez/Jets had a decal with the score of the Colts-Jets game. The Colts were better, get over it, 2010 is a new year
    and the Jets are going to be scary good even without a decal reminder...

    I wonder if he also carries the burden of the other sticker that calls out all of the taunts thrown out at the team that "didn't belong there".

    funny how the chargers essentially launched cromartie and tomlinson and sproles after the game. why on earth is kaeding still the place kicker?

    rivers is the head punk of a team full of punks.

    This. Look forward to the next season rather than dwell on something that is in the past and you can't change.

    Here's some new material:

    History now shows that Chad Pennington was the worst mistake in Jets franchise history.

    Worse than Dave Cadigan. Worse than Ritch Kotite. Worse than Blair Thomas. Better to just suck from Day 1 and be gone after 2 years than to yo-yo between 'suck' and 'good' for 10. You can't [I]find [/I]me another New York Jet that distracted our focus, cost us so many games, emptied our cap, and wasted our time more than Penne. We cheered him off the field after an injury at home against a division rival in Week 1 for cripesakes. I ain't wrong on this one.

    i'd be more annoyed if Sanchez made faces like this:
