Philip Rivers is expecting his 7th baby at any time. Crazy that the dude will have 7 of those little rug rats running around now. One for every point in a touchdown.

But the baby is due at any time. I am hoping that this baby can take it’s time and wait for the BYE week. What happens if Momma Rivers goes into labor over the weekend? What are we going to do against the Jacksonville Jaguars?

I know the Jaguars are the worst team in the league, but we would have a way to make this thing interesting. We would have our starting quarterback have to miss the game. I wouldn’t blame Philip, but we would have to start Charlie Whitehurst in that game.

Philip Rivers did put some of those questions to rest by saying that when he flies out to Jacksonville, there is no return back until after the game. Can we fly Philip out there now? If Momma Rivers goes into labor he is going to have to facetime her when it happens. I guess that is what you do when you have 7 children. Maybe?

Congrats to Philip. If he has to be home with Momma Rivers, then he has to do it. It sounds like he plans on being in Jacksonville no matter what though.
