You're saying a "totally healthy Peyton Manning < Philip Rivers?" And you're not just saying, you state it as if it's an undeniable fact. I'd be very curious to see how many gm's around the league, given the choice only between Rivers, Tebow, Palmer and Manning, would choose anyone besides #18. I watched Philip Rivers this year and he was just not the same player as he has been in years past. I could see if your case was "over the next 5 years..." but you're saying that TODAY, Rivers is better than Manning at 100%. I know you do the analysis... but no way can I buy into that.

Manning may not have been as good as Rivers in 2010 either. But if you go far enough into the past, then yeah, Manning over everyone else in the game makes sense to me. He might have been the greatest to ever play in his prime.

San Diego Chargers plan to release DE Luis Castillo, source says - ESPN
I was hoping we would take a look at him when I saw the news. He is better than Carriker, unless he wants big money.

why do you think he's better than Carriker and Carriker had 5.5 sacks last year...not bad for a 3-4 End.

I like Castillo but he is 28 and recovering from a broken leg.

You are right, Carriker did play good last year. But let's compare both careers stats; Castillo: 210 tackles and 19 sacks, Carriker: 124 tackles and 9 sacks. Carriker is only one year younger. But Lotus did bring up good point, I forgot about the fact that Castillo broke his leg last season. I would not be upset if we resign Carriker instead, I'm just saying that I think we should check out Castillo and see if it might work out for both.

A lot of the sacks that Orakpo "earned" were actually collected by Carriker, Neild, and Bowen. Which, I mean, someone needs to tackle the quarterback, or you don't get the sack, but whoever would have been playing LDE instead of Carriker would have had the same opportunity.

Interesting. They were probably sick of him as well.
