Default Von Miller rants about Rivers greatness

Haven't seen it posted anywhere but then again I didn't bother looking.

https://www.google.com/amp/ftw.usato...?client=safari

I also feel that Rivers is one of the best of his generation, hard to argue otherwise. Too bad he plays for the suck ass Chargers.

Gosh I hate Rivers but he's a solid QB who's hungry for one last shot at glory.

Anyway possible this could happen?

Von Miller, last night, applied the pressure that caused the final interception. It was so awesome and fun to watch one more time for this season. He also had two pass defenses in coverage. I remember about 4 years ago that he wanted to be a complete linebacker. That wish has come true.

lol not really. He was getting great pressure, but Kirk Cousins hit Jimmy Graham right in the hands which was dropped for an easy INT.

Throw was a touch early, IMO.

Telesco: "So we really need to trade our franchize QB who has a no trade clause in his contract. Who should we trade him to?"

Several Teams: "We'll trade you two 1sts for him, maybe more."

Telesco: "Interesting, but I'd really like to keep him in the division if possible so that we have to play against him twice a year"

Elway: "I'll give you a totally unproven QB and a conditional 7th for him!"

Telesco: "SOLD!"

Seems like some of the better players on DEN are very complimentary of other teams QBs, who are the topic of trade rumors.
And there's not much to say from these same players about DEN's current QB's.
Huh.

Notice that all of those QB's in the trade rumors are proven vet QB's who have won a lot of games and they had Peyton Manning as the standard for many years.

The best way to have a fully functioning offense is to have a franchise QB. They tend to hide a lot of what is wrong with the team and specifically the offense overall.
You put a guy like Rivers on this team with our defense and it's near a wrap.
In the player's mind, they would love a guy who has been in the trenches and won. It's the quickest route back to a title.

A young QB means growing pains, waiting for them to improve and having to deal with their likely mistakes in big moments.

PLayers want to win NOW.
Thats why KUBIAK played TREVOR over LYNCH,
TS gave the team their best shot at winning every week !
NOW OM fans want to defile kubes for that decision?

JFE has to temper his win now mentality wioth his DESIRE to justify his Paxton lynch draft !
its osweiler 2.0,
JMHO.

Exactly. I think this is Von's way of saying that to Elway through the media.
I guess he could always just call him though.
But yeah, like I have also stated here countless times, Rivers puts DEN back into the SB for the next two years.

. So Von is trying to sneak a message to Elway by telling Philip Rivers that he is great, somehow knowing that Weddle is going to go tell the story to the press? Von is one crafty mofo.

I think Rivers would be a huge upgrade. Still, I'm kind of surprised at the free pass he's had for lack of post-season success. He's had plenty of talent around him.

i just don't see JFE rolling big money out on a QB when his boy PL is sitting on the bench and just in the rear view mirror was a coaching slate wiped clean where the #1 issue was PL's playing time, or lack there of.

things change of course.

EDIT: unless somehow, someway JFE can get him on a one year deal and be able to cut him, in place for a hopeful PL the following season. i don't see how that would EVER happen though.

He and Romo have a lot in common.

The thing about Rivers is that in spots of big games he goes Cutler, not nearly as much as Cutler does, he is a much better QB than Jay but enough to lose in the playoffs.

I am fine with rolling with your young guns until it is clear they are not the answer.

Siemian was productive behind a historically bad OL and zero run game. Improve the OL and get CJ back and give him a TE target and if he fails again next year then we can look at Rivers or some other QB as an option.

I think Lynch is at least 2 years away from being ready. Just terrible fundamentals and he got worse as the season went on. Give him 2 more years and he should be serviceable.
