I am not sure why BFTB thinks that we will want to go after Kyle Orton, but they ranted a bit about it.

Here we go… RT @PatKirwanCBS: The teams that should go after Kyle Orton should be Balt,Chi,Den, SD, Detroit,SF

The Chargers should not have the highest paid backup QB. In fact they probably don't need a backup QB at all. WHY?

— Bolts From The Blue (@BFTB_Chargers) July 15, 2014

Because the last time Rivers missed a game was in college (I'm assuming he missed a game in college. He may not have.).

Rivers is not young enough to need a tutor, bad enough to need a challenger, or injury-prone enough to need a backup plan. NO TO ORTON.

— Bolts From The Blue (@BFTB_Chargers) July 15, 2014

Okay. So Rivers has never missed a game then? Ever? That sounds about right. Why pay for a backup QB then? No reason.

I will leave you with this.
