Mondays/Thursdays can't be flexed. How would you like to suddenly discover that a game you were going to on Sunday suddenly got moved to Thursday, or vice versa? Only Sunday games can get moved to earlier/later.

No shocker there. I expected this to happen.

San Diego is awful. They lost 12 players to injury yesterday, including Keenen Allen to a kidney injury.

If it wasn't for Rivers, they'd be winless.

Yep. They're fucked.

The injuries began within moments after kickoff with King Dunlap injured on the second snap of the game. Corey Liuget, Ladarius Green, Stevie Johnson and Chris Hairston soon followed with injuries by the time the first quarter came to a close, although the later pair would return in the second quarter.
At one point, each big play made by a Charger seemed to be at the mercy of losing that player to injury. For instance, shortly after picking up a first down on a crossing pattern, Ladarius Green exited with an ankle injury and did not return. At the end of the first half, Keenan Allen made a remarkable, acrobatic touchdown snare between two defenders in the back of the end zone. However, it proved to be his final play of the game as he was slow to get up, and shortly thereafter diagnosed with muscle spasms.

Yeah, they typically play the late afternoon game when there are only 3-4 options, so they nearly always dominate the time. I'd like to know what their ratings are though in a season like this one, it's gotta be low, but then again... if there are only 3 games on, and it's football - I'd assume it's high.

Allen headed to injured reserve after lacerated kidney

San Diego's drifting season just floated into a dark corner.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that wideout Keenan Allen underwent a procedure on Monday to repair a lacerated kidney, per a pair of sources. NFL Media's Rand Getlin reports he is headed to injured reserve, according to a source briefed on the situation.

Allen suffered the injury during Sunday's loss to the Ravens, stripping the Chargers of their leading receiver. The third-year wideout has hauled in 67 passes, second best in the NFL and tied for the third most catches in NFL history over eight weeks behind Julio Jones (this season) and Marvin Harrison.

Allen's 725 yards and four touchdowns have anchored a Rivers-led air attack that currently leads the league in passing yards. Allen and Philip Rivers have shown a unique chemistry. In his absence, Stevie Johnson, Malcom Floyd and Dontrelle Inman are bound for plenty of work. Tight ends Antonio Gates (MCL) and Ladarius Green (ankle) are both nursing injuries, but will be leaned on hard down the stretch.

The Chargers (2-6) are buried deep in the AFC and would need to piece together a massive win streak to get back into the conference's playoff picture. Losing their premier receiver makes that task next to impossible.

http://www.sportsmediawatch.com/2015/11/nfl-ratings-seahawks-cowboys-huge-fox-london-game-down/

The Week 8 Seahawks/Cowboys NFL national window drew a 19.5 overnight rating on FOX Sunday afternoon, up 50% from coverage on CBS featuring Colts/Steelers last year (13.0) and up 11% from coverage on FOX featuring Washington/Broncos in 2013 (17.5). The 19.5 overnight is the highest of the season for an NFL telecast, topping the previous high of 17.8 for Cowboys/Eagles on FOX in Week 2.

Going back further, the 19.5 is tied as the highest regular season NFL overnight on a single network since 2007, when CBS drew a 22.5 for Patriots/Colts. According to Sports Business Daily, it is also the highest for a regular season game on FOX since 1996.

The numbers are especially impressive given both teams entered Sunday’s game under .500, with the Cowboys winless since losing QB Tony Romo. No other sporting event came close over the weekend, with Packers/Broncos on Sunday Night Football (14.3) and Game 5 of the World Series (11.7) cannibalizing each other later in the night.

Agreed, I'd go as far to say the if the Chiefs had acquired Rivers instead of Alex Smith in 2013, they'd have at least one Super Bowl and Jon Baldwin would have left the Chiefs this off season as the highest paid FA WR.

With Rivers, the Chiefs D, Charles and a rag tag group of receivers, the Chiefs would have been a juggernaut

Rivers just can't catch a break with the Chargers. Every year it's the same thing:
-Weak Defense
-Poor Special Teams
-Inept Coaching
-Crazy injuries, (especially the OLine).

In the good old days of his career these problems seemed to rear their head later in the season, but for the past 5 seasons it's been the same story over and over.

The Keenan injury kinda sucks but Rivers has been making chicken salad out of chicken shit with low level WRs for many years now so it shouldn't make a huge difference.

I know I won't find any sympathy on a Chiefs board, but in my opinion, Rivers' career has been as hobbled by poor management as Marino's was.

When you look at the 2 rapists picked in the same draft as Rivers, (Eli raped the NFL draft system), and see that they each have 2 SBs a piece, based mostly on their team's excellent defenses. Rivers career, to this point, is nothing more than a tragedy based on unfortunate circumstances.

BTW - he currently has a contract with the most guaranteed money of any NFL QB, so I don't feel that bad for him.:thumb:

Brees was just about to enter his prime when he was let go. Rivers was a game manager his first couple years playing, and by the time he hit his stride LT and the rest of your team was dismantled. Those 2006-2008 Chargers were loaded and would've been even better with Brees.

Were the Chargers going to hire Sean Payton. If not, then your argument is fucking stupid. Brees was a good but not great QB in San Diego. He was also coming off a pretty significant shoulder injury. Payton helped mold him in to the player he is today.

You have to ask why Rivers was there to begin with.
Brees and LT were both drafted in 2001. Brees couldn't beat out Doug Flutie in his rookie season. LT's prime started day 1 with 1,200 yds in his rookie season.

2002 Brees took the starting job and was 8-8. LT was still in his prime.

2003 Brees sucked balls and the Chargers finished 4-12. LT was still in his prime.

2004 Rivers is drafted. Brees gets his head out of his ass and goes 12-4, (4th seed in the AFC). Lose to the Jets in the 1st round. LT was still in his prime.

2005 Brees last year and regresses. Injures shoulder on final play of the season. Chargers go 9-7, miss the playoffs. LT was still in his prime.

The Chargers have had far more success with Rivers than they did with Brees regardless of whether LT was in his prime, and Brees' performance during his time in SD gave them no choice but to let him walk.

Brees goes to N.O. and a pass happy system at the perfect time in his career while Rivers hands the ball off to LT. It wouldn't have made a difference if he got those hand-offs from Rivers or Brees.

Would the Chargers have won the 2006 AFC Championship with Brees? Maybe.

Would Rivers have manged a SB win playing for the Saints? Maybe.

We all know know "Maybe" doesn't mean anything.

If you were the GM, would you re-sign a streaky midget QB with a serious shoulder injury to a huge contract, with a first round QB waiting in the wings? - Maybe

I understand the circumstances which lead to Brees leaving. The Chargers probably made the right decision at the time, but in hindsight the Chargers would've been better off with Brees. I'm not knocking Rivers, he's turned into a really great QB that 25+ teams would love to have, it just sucks for the Chargers that the 2008 version of Rivers didn't play for them in 2006.

I think Marlon McCree didn't go down after the interception in the AFC Championship after Marty told him to because Rivers was the QB. If it were Brees at the QB spot. Maybe he would have

That was their true chance and it was blown by an idiot SS.

I would also say the Jets playoff game where Kaeding missed all 3 FGS and they lost by 3 points might have have been a good opportunity, but Rivers choked, right? Maybe if Brees were there they would have won. Maybe Kaeding sucked because of Rivers.

Again, since you are obviously a drooling retard with zero reading comprehension, Brees was helped substantially by Sean Payton's coaching and his offense. If San Diego wasn't going to hire Payton to coach Brees, then it wouldn't have mattered.

Yep, I don't get the why the Chiefs fans have been clamoring for a 1st round QB, (or even 2nd round- Brees). As I said in another post, This off-season I thought the Chiefs should build their defense. Instead, they pissed away their money to add Maclin, a short, play making WR.

If the Chiefs had spent that Maclin money on the defense they could've been a contender. Bucs, Ravens , Steelers and Giants type Super Bowl caliber defense. But no... Alex needs a target...

Alex needs big targets and they're a dime a dozen. Look at Floyd for the Chargers. He was an UDFA. Tall and decent WRs are not hard to find. Maclin was a waste of money.

Alex could be a better version of Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer, and the early SB winning versions of Big Ben and Eli if only he had the same kind of kick ass defense. And the Chiefs were so close...

Brees was good before Sean Payton. The Chargers had the #1 pick in the draft the year Brees was drafted... He was playing on a shit team.

In his fourth year with the Chargers he threw 27 TD's with 7 INT's and had a 104.8 QB Rating. It took him 4 years in New Orleans before he put up better numbers than that.

You didn't sit through watching his 3rd year. It was brutal. He was under-throwing WRs every play. Chargers get the first pick and take the least rapey QB available. Common sense.

I'm not wrong. In his fifth season he regressed and threw 24 TD's and 15 INT's. Remember this is while quarterbacking the team with the best RB in football and the second best TE in football.
