NFL.com Discusses Gates/Rivers Discussion
NFL.com had a Gates/Rivers discussion on their instant debate yesterday to discuss which player is more valuable to the Chargers. I wonder if they saw the same topic that we had up and running here the day before? ?
Anyway, the response was unanimous. Philip Rivers has more value to the Bolts, but it is definitely a blessing to have both on the team. Here are some of the highlight notes for each player:
He is a top-five quarterback with everything but the ring to show for it.
Rivers is a fulcrum of an offensive machine with his hands on the ball 50, 60 snaps per game.
At 29, Rivers is arguably the best deep-ball thrower in football, a player capable of lifting the level of his teammates, and one of the most respected leaders in the game.
Gates is among the most talented tight ends the game has ever seen.
