Tide Rises for Rivers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The news broke earlier in the week about Phillip Rivers the quarterback for the now Los Angeles Chargers had packed up and moved his family to Florida. Now as a Chargers fan should you panic? Personally I think the answer is no. Let’s be honest, new year, newish city, new quarterback might do the Chargers some good. Rivers is still a good quarterback and he was commuting from San Diego so this doesn’t mean he’s done playing for the Chargers. Although I find it highly unlikely that he’ll commute from Florida. The point being is if he’s no longer in your city he’s probably not gonna be with the team for the 2020 season. This line of thinking doesn’t include Tom Brady, he’s for sure gonna be in a Patriots jersey next year. I’ll give you a minute to mourn the departure of your long time quarterback….. And enough of that let’s talk draft. Draft season is my favorite season. As a long time fan of a losing Franchise I always looked forward to the draft. Mostly it brought me hope, but more importantly it prolonged football for just a couple more months. Two prospects that I think Chargers fans should be excited about is Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa. Tua has been linked to the Miami Dolphins for so long it feels like he’s already on the team. Here’s what I find interesting about the Dolphins 1st round pick. Fitz Magic is returning or rather staying in south beach next year. They hired Chan Gailey to become the OC and Fitz knows that offense so well he really should be coaching it. So that tells me the Dolphins can be super patient with the 5th overall pick, say draft a lineman after sending the best young left tackle in the League to Houston. Before you draft a franchise Quarterback you have to make sure he will be protected. With Tua coming off a season ending injury with Alabama, you want to make sure you’re not throwing him to the Wolves of the AFC East. I personally think Miami goes lineman with number 5 the injury to Tua will scare them off a bit and with the draft capital they have they can easily trade back up and grab him if they need to (hint: I don’t think they’ll need to). Now you’re probably wondering where this leaves us with the Chargers fiasco. It’s pretty easy, the Chargers pick 6th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. Guess who’s sitting there pretty? More than likely with a big chip on his shoulder because he was told this whole year that the Dolphins were gonna take him. You’re on fire today if you guessed Tua Tagovailoa. I think the Chargers have a pretty good shot of drafting him, they have a more rounded team then the Dolphins do and he can easily sit behind Tyrod Taylor if need be for the first year. That’s the dream scenario, Rivers moves to Florida and the Los Angeles Chargers grab his replacement with the 6th overall draft.  Chin up Chargers fans, things could certainly be worse right? It’s Draft season, the most magical time of the year. Time to get your hopes up and dream of a perfect Draft.

America’s Largest Amateur League Shines in Baseball’s “Lost Season”

2020 will forever be remembered as baseball’s lost season. The sport was shattered due to the COVID-19 pandemic virus outbreak. Baseball fans were out of luck this summer as they were entirely restricted from attending any professional or semi-pro live games. Watching on television or live stream wasn’t much better. Most of the MLB season was cancelled including the pre-season, the much anticipated Iowa Field of Dreams game, Puerto Rico series, London Series and All...

IPL: Mumbai Indians Lose Season Opener

Mumbai Indians lost an Indian Premier League (IPL) opener for the 8th successive year following a 5-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings. Having lost the first game of the season in the last 7 years, Mumbai might have thought this was their time, as they were on a 5-game winning run against CSK. However, ex Mumbai Indians player Ambati Rayudu and South African superstars Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi ensured that it didn’t...

When Did Formula One Begin?

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”. In order to answer the question properly we need...

Stanley Cup Finals: Tampa Bay Lightning vs Dallas Stars

The Cleveland Browns Are Looking Up

The Cleveland Browns have a team that had a ton of questions this year. They came into the game against the Bengals unsure of how they were going to get their offense going. While the Bengals aren't at all a good defense, it's still hard to play those divisional games and win. The AFC North is known for brutally cold weather that makes it nearly impossible to stay sharp, yet they were sharp offensively....

The Case For Rocky Marciano

You wouldn't think, not even for a second, that you would have to defend a world champion boxer who retired with an unblemished record of 49-0 (43 KO's), but if it's Rocky Marciano we're talking about then yep, he needs to be defended. It's ridiculous, but true. Marciano seems to have as many naysayers as he does fans. "He was too small", "He never fought anybody in their prime", "He'd get killed today"; etc....
