Re: Never too early!!

If they can't find a way to split up NINE BILLION DOLLARS they all deserve shot. I would take the Ravens or Jets in a second to win it all before I'd take the Chargers, who haven't won anything in years. You couldn't melt Rivers down and pour him into a big game. Some guys have it, like Ben, Brady, Montana, Bradshaw, Warner, etc. Most don't have big game ability. The Ravens and Jets also have overhyped QBs who haven't won jack, but at least they play defense and can run the ball some to keep some of the pressure off those guys. San Diego has to rely on a guy who melts when the lights are hottest and brightest. Not good. The Chargers may be the most overrated team of the past 10 years. At least Manning did eek out a SB win. Rivers ain't even close. Guess that third QB taken after Eli Manning and Rivers did turn out to be the best of the class BY FAR. 7 seasons, 3 Conference titles, 2 Super Bowl rings, 5 playoff trips. Blows the other two away, even if you combine their meager achievements.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Re: Never too early!!

Honestly , I like Atlanta at 16-1 odds. They have all the tools to get the job done.

Re: Never too early!!

I'm not sure they quite have the defense, especially given the type of offense they run.

Re: Never too early!!

Hard for me to believe that San Diego is fourth on that list.

Re: Never too early!!

Odds have nothing to do with who is actually better. ESPN hypes Rivers like he's the second coming of Fouts, and he is. Pretty numbers but can't win crap. But ESPN pumps him up, and casual fans go "Well, if ESPN is saying he's great, he must be!!" Same as NE and Indy. NE hasn't done diddly squat since they were made to stop cheating. And Peyton Manning's postseason failures are legendary. IMO, an arguement could be made that he's actually a career underachiever, a perennial bridesmaid who happened to get drunk and married once in Vegas. From his time at Tennessee, he's choked in big games. Pretty numbers are not the measure of a QB. That whole offense is based on Manning getting pretty stats, so he will have nice numbers. Can you imagine if he threw for 2800 yards, 20 TDs and 9 INTs? They would go 0-16. But despite having everything his way, he has the same amount of success as Doug Williams, Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer. But the Manning/Beiber/Rivers propaganda is put out by ESPN and the Roger Goodell network everyday, so people end up making stupid bets, and Roger can justify taking defense, contact, and anything that may be construed as manliness out of football.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
