Does Phillip Rivers Talk Too Much Trash?

I have to say that Rivers is one of my favorite quarterbacks because I'm a huge NC State fan. Another thing I like about him is he isn't afraid to jaw back and forth to the players of the other team and last week when he got hurt he was running his mouth the the Colts' fans as he was leaving the field. I think its great to see someone with that kind of fire. My question is do you think he talks too much trash? He is not healthy from his injuries but yet he has been talking a lot of trash this week and he is also hopeful he will play (he is currently listed as questionable though) However, if he does play he will be playing with two bad knees and might be a sitting duck out there with the New England defense. It could mean trouble for him and his team... I still like the fire though ha ha! Go Chargers :)

Philip Rivers is like the exact opposite of Eli Manning. If Eli is Eeyore from Winnie The Pooh then Rivers is Bart Simpson. Rivers isn't afraid to say anything to anyone. Sometimes that's a good thing and sometimes that's a bad thing. I don't have a problem with a guy talking as long as he can back it up. San Diego is in the AFC championship game so I'd say that Rivers has backed it up. But he better not talk and smack today because I don't think he's going to be able to back it up. Even if he were 100% and didn't have that knee injury I still don't think that he would be able to back it up.

I usually don't pay close attention if he talks trash or not. All he's going to have to do is back up his claims and his team has to win. That's what he's going to have to do. Now is the time and is the moment of truth. If the Chargers keep it close, it'll be well and if they win, it'll surely be an upset.

I agree with you. Rivers is just being himself. If you don't like it, it is just too bad.I like that attitude.

That is his personality so it is all good. He borders on crossing the line sometimes but as you said, that is him. He is a competitor and he is a winner. The only thing I never liked about Rivers even back at NC St. is his release. He throws it a little short armed but he gets the job done.
