Rain Delay Theatre: Rabbit-Ears Rivers wants Charger fans to STFU

While Dolphins fans are near orgasmic at the thought of a forfeit victory, the rest of us are bored shitless by the delay in starting the game tonight. Here's something to idle away the hours while waiting for these clowns to fix Heinz Field's latest drainage fiasco: Philip Rivers telling home fans to shut up during an early rough patch in the Charges 32-14 over the Ravens. We hear those hardboiled, cynical San Diegans can be downright brutal on a shrinking violet like Philip.



Man. Up. Nancy.

Geez, this delicate flower wouldn't even make it out of the tunnel at the Linc. I saw Kevin Kolb get booed in training camp.

You know the devil has you by the balls when you're disappointed a game featuring an 0-10 team playing a 7-3 team, with Tony Kornheiser as commentator, is delayed.

Now we know why Eli didn't want to go to San Diego. Those rowdy San Diegans would have tore that ass apart.

to be fair, fans who heckle their own young quarterbacks of fragile psyche are pretty fucking stupid.

Douche, with a capital D. I love me some Philip Rivers haterade. Keep it coming!

@steve - 54/106, 203 ypg, 5 ints, 1 td in his previous three games.

@um - very good point about how dumb it is to boo young qbs. It does seem to me though that Rivers deserves it even more than the black sheep does. At least the he has some upside - the best hope for Rivers is that he could be Chad Pennington 2.0. And if A.J. Smith hadn't have given up on Drew Brees so quickly, he could have gotten him some help by way of Larry Fitzgerald or the late Meast.

Still, Chargers fans are, by and large, douchebags.

@Quiet Strength- You think I don't know that?

The ironic thing about this post is that my fellow douchebag Charger fans weren't even booing Rivers. They were booing the two LT runs up the middle for no gain. In other word, they actually wanted Rivers to throw the ball.

As for Rivers v Manning, check the numbers. Throw in Merriman, Kaeding and Oben, and its a no brainer.

Fuck you very much for nailing all Charger fans as douchebags. Every team has a minority of fair-weather fans and the Chargers are no exception.

I had my season tickets through the good and bad seasons when I lived there. I still watch them every week and hope for the best.

I do however hope and pray that someone caps Norvie.

My comment was to quiet strength btw..

We're allowed to post stats on KSK now?

@steve - Yeah, that particular clip they were booing LT instead of Rivers. Much better! I could give a rat's ass, but I remember them booing him in the Indianapolis game...which I seem to recall the Chargers winning.

@dusty - Yes. That's exactly what I was doing. Nailing ALL Chargers fans douchebags. That's why I inserted that "by and large." Anyways, don't take it so personally. Pretty much every teams' fans are doucehbags.
