Philip Rivers LOVES to chatter out on the field. All the Bolts fans know this, and the opposition HATES it. Here are some quotes from former Raiders Defensive End Jay Richardson from EYES Radio Network:
I’m not a big Philip Rivers fan, because I think he’s kind of a cocky dude and I’ve had a chance to sack him before and hit him as hard as I can. I’ll do so again if I get another opportunity. But, nothing personal against Philip Rivers. I think he’s still a heck of a quarterback.
I will take a special pleasure in hitting him because he likes to talk during games a little bit. Anybody who has ever watched an NFL game where he’s mic’d up and he’s in it he talks a little big. But you like guys who are talkers. I’m a talker, so that’s okay.
And here are his thoughts on if he had heard Philip cuss:
I didn’t write anything down that he was saying during games . . . all I can say is he talks. Now me, personally? Do I think he’s cussed before? Heck yeah. If you ask my opinion I’d have to think a dirty word has slipped out . . . but I can’t say I’ve ever heard him cuss.
Talking some mess can bring the BEST out of some players and it can throw some players off of their game. As a quarterback, it is going to motivate the other team to hit Philip HARDER when they get past the line. There may even be a few more cheap shots coming his way.
What do you guys think of Philip’s chatter? Since he is on OUR team, I LOVE IT! If he was on the Raiders, Broncos, or Chiefs, he would be one of my worst enemies and I would want my defensive lineman to inflict pain! I hope Philip keeps talking that noise and backs it up with a championship and then the yapping will be even more annoying for the opposition!
