not for Brees's shoulder injury?

My opinion... completely mixed!!! There was no way you could predict that Brees would have that break out season in 2004. Then when you have the #1 draft pick and a guy like Rivers is available... it's hard to pass that up!

One team isn't big enough for both QBs. You don't want either riding the bench!

Any other opinions?

LOL. Brees is great and will always be one of my all time favorite Chargers (and QBs for this matter) but Rivers has given us no reason to miss him.

What QB is better... well both have amazing leadership, skills, toughness, and consistency but are completely different. Brees is the top rated and he should be there... but Rivers isn't far behind.

This is a win/win situation for both teams!

So if not for Drew's shoulder injury... would things have been different?
Any opinions?

Re: Would things have been different if...

ya know, i really don't understand all of the chargers' fans feelings for rivers. i think he's a whiner and he's an upper-mediocre quarterback. he has good receivers, but still makes plenty of mistakes. i think he's a punk, good quarterback, but NO WAY can he be put in the ssame sentence as brees.

however, i know he was nowhere NEAR the quarterback in SD that he is in NO...but to say they're close now is just preposterous. but it appears that everyone in SD wants to blow rivers. he's good...but he's no franchise player IMO. maybe i just don't like him b/c he's a baby, but i dunno. i just know i'd be happier to root for the chargers if rivers wasn't on the team :P

I just thank AJ every day. AJ you're no John Butler and you will never be. You can blame a QB for a team struggles and injuries.

Thanks AJ

Re: Would things have been different if...

I was in San Diego at the time of all this was going on and injury or no injury Bree's was out. Don't think for a minute if not for the injury Brees was staying in SD it wasn't going to happen. They didn't think Brees was the guy who was going to take them to the next level. He was done.
