Philip Rivers = Terrell Owens.
They're the same person; trash talking twins. Absolute doppelgangers.
They're both showboats. They both let their emotions get the best of them. Most of all, they're both impossible to root for.
|Yes you, Philip Rivers. Your act is already getting old and we're sick of it. (US Presswire)|
Punks, all of them.
The San Diego Chargers are normally the kind of team fans would embrace. The disparaged head coach turned hero; the underdog that shocked the Indianapolis Colts; the team taking on the Evil Empire. The Chargers should be America's Team.
Indeed, I have always respected the Chargers organization. Some of the assistants on Norv Turner's staff I have known for years. Qualcomm Stadium is the best place in the country to watch a football game.
The problem is the personality of this team has changed and not for the better. The Chargers are becoming the Oakland Raiders -- silver and yak.
They talk and talk and talk. The Chargers are the biggest trash talkers in all of sports. They make Chad Johnson blush.
And they've earned this reputation mostly because of Rivers.
Oh, he's not the lone trash talker or on-field disco dancer. There are Shawne Merriman's steroid-soaked sack celebrations and the sometimes obnoxious actions of the mostly gentlemanly and Teflon-coated LaDainian Tomlinson.
San Diego defensive lineman Igor Olshansky, following the Chargers' divisional game against the Colts, opened his extra large yapper and, unprovoked, mocked the Patriots. He actually said the Patriots were more afraid of the Chargers than the Chargers were of the Patriots.
What's the word for stupid in the Ukraine?
