You don't believe in a synergy?

 

A bit, but the fact remains the 2 have never been on the field at the same time in their entire careers. It's a strange sport haha Just think if the rules had been written with players having to play both offense and defense.

Good way for gates to go out. He really should retire though as long as Henry doesn’t have any issues

RIP Rivers. 0-8 against Brady

 

Watching Rivers scream at his sidelines to get the plays in on time was pretty sad.

Brady has lost 4 of his last 5 playoff games on the road too, a relevant stat for next week.

 

Also, nobody can stop Big D1ck Nick aka Footlong Foles.

They've only played 3 road playoff games since 2006.

2006 AFC Championship @ IND (L 38-34)
2013 AFC Championship @ DEN (L 26-16)
2015 AFC Championship @ DEN (L 20-18)

Mainly because they've been the top seed / one of the top seeds most years and were playing at home. They also won 2 Superbowls during this time, where they technically would have been on the road as well. So I think the stat sounds worse than it actually is.

Agreed - a 33% chance of success is much better-sounding than that stat might initially lead one to believe.

 

Wait: on re-reading, were those all losses?  If so, when did they last win on the road?!

Wow - so a 20% success rate?  Do you know when they last won on the road?

Well he's 3-4 overall on the road in the playoffs. But he last won on the road in 2006 @ SD. Peyton Manning owns 3 of those 4 wins vs Brady in the playoffs when he's at home. It's all right here.

They won the Divisional match against the Chargers in 2006 on the road, before losing to Indy on the road in the Conference Championship.

Answered my own question: 2006 at Bolts was a win.  One out of five in the past 14 years.

I'll say it again: Philip Rivers most over-rated qb of all time.

 

Interesting - in a recent Atlantic poll of NFL defenders, he was voted among the most underrated

I guess it depends where you rank him. I don't think you'll find many people putting him in the same conversation as Brady, Rodgers, Brees, Mahomes, etc. And I would say a lot of people would put him above Dalton, Smith, Flacco, Carr, etc. But after that it's probably a bit more up in the air. I think I'd have him around the Luck, Cousins, Stafford area, but that's just my opinion. Either way, I don't think throwing for 331 yards and scoring 3 TDs in an AFC Divisional Round game is that bad of an outing. The Chargers as a whole just needed to play better.

Just listened to a pats insider.... it came off as Rivers was a bit dramatic and isn't capable of being a leader. Evidently he was part of problem with his team coming to the stadium. He was very disrespectful when he got to stadium.
