Even after his last two seasons, would you still trade Alex Smith for Phillip Rivers?
 
A buddy of mine and I at work were discussing this today. He says no way but I'd do it in a heartbeat. I cant stand the douche and he has been pretty bad lately but I still think Rivers has more potential to get us a playoff win than Alexis. And yes, Im that beat down as a Chiefs fan...all I want is one playoff win.

No

Alex Smith would have had the Chargers at 3-13 last year.

HELL no

Pretty much a draw, but I think Rivers has a smidge more going for him. He's declining astoundingly fast, though. It may be a matter of who's cheaper.

I have never been a P. Rivers fan. I have watched him play way more than Alex Smith. So my opinion could be off by choosing what I don't know, but right now I would go with Alex Smith.

It seems to me Rivers struggles started the V Jackson holdout, and the constant injuries of Gates. Then the O-line disintegrated. I think they have some pretty decent receivers, but the O-line is going to cause them problems this year.

Close call.

Count Zarth 07-29-2013 02:52 PM

Philip Rivers is a guy who can throw for close to 5,000 yards if conditions are right. It's not like he doesn't have more playoff wins than this douche Alex Smith.

Alex Smith can get you 3200 if conditions are right.

Why is this a question?

See this playoff game?

Only reason the Chargers had a snowball's chance in hell in it: Rivers.

Yes

yep

I wouldn't trade for him because the people of San Diego have been questioning his effectiveness for two years. He's had 47 turnovers from 2011-2012 and his game appears to be on the decline. He's never won anything significant and he's 31 years old.

If he were available in free agency, I'd be interested. But as a trade? No.

If he bombs out this season, it'll be his last in San Diego, anyway.

I kind of agree with this and to go along with it I think his knee is deteriorating.
