  • Some acceptance and seething hatred still in San Diego (link)

    In a thread called "Archie was right." is some interesting perspective and reading on San Diego fan's woes. I'm not much into misery of others but it is interesting on their take on the team in general and the fact that most think Archie was indeed correct in forcing a trade to the Giants.

    Others... are still very very bitter and angry. Enjoy for what it's worth.

    I went to SD last summer. They were very happy with the trade. Wonder how they feel now.

      i've read that a couple times.

      i get it fans being bitter about eli never coming to SD.

      but he's clearly made the right decision, and the thought that he should have sacrificed what he's been able to achieve here in NY for the sake of 'honour' or whatever self serving reason they give is bunk.

      and the repeated idea that eli came here for endorsement contracts? Really?

      He came here because the ownership in SD has a bad rep, and as already confirmed in a number of sources, the ownership in NY is considered the crown jewel of the NFL.

        Well with the way they rubbed our noses in the trade for Eli's first 3 years, they deserve as much misery as they can get. They might have been able to make an argument after Eli's first SB they still edged out a win on the trade. But after two? Please. Right now Rivers would be lucky to be a footnote at Eli's induction into the Hall of Fame.

          Most of those Chargers fans are babies...

          whining because Eli didnt wanna play for them.

          I thought they were happier w/ Rivers? I thought we were the ones that got fleeced in the trade?

          No point in complaining about "priniciple" if you think your guy is much better.

          Now that Eli's got 2 rings and Rivers hasn't sniffed a SB appearance, Merriman is gone, Kading is gone, Oben is gone...now its unfair that Eli came here, and they're all crying like a buncha babies...

          Man up and move on...

          "Wah...I'll never forgive the Mannings...wah..."

          Please..

          BTW I always get a good chuckle when I hear Eli and egomaniac in the same sentence...

            I read the entire thread, all 11 pages.

            Basically many believe Eli is an ego maniac, not very good, and a product of the Giants "system". They believe defense is the only reason the Giants won and that the Giants would have more than 2 rings if Phillip Rivers was our QB.


            There's more but I'll leave that up to you all. It's worth 15 minutes of reading. I was smiling the entire time.

            Am I evil?

              Some of the posters on this board whined as much as the SD babies for years about the trade, and Eli!!!

                Yeah, Eli, an ego maniac. Dude takes all the blame and none of the credit. Delusional over there on the other coast.

                  [/quote]It was all because of AJ Smith. He wanted Rivers with Shotty. Mannings got wind of it, wanted out but to save face SD tried 2 take a hard stance after the leaf problem.

                    Archie Manning had a very good read on AJ Smith; namely, he's a d-bag.




                    Smith proved it right off the bat....Archie wanted to talk about the draft - and a potential trade -privately, in orderto avoid any embarrassment for anyone.




                    But instead,Smith went running to the media like a high school chick.




                    After that, it was a burnt bridge between Archie and AJ, and the rest is history.

                      I have my own version of this story I'd like to tell and I'm still surprised NOBODY mentions this!

                      Part 1:
                      Back before the draft in 2004 Mel Kiper came on ESPN to do a report on the Senior Bowl practices. He said that the Marty Schottenheimer, who was coaching the team Phillip Rivers was on, loves Rivers and has told A.J. Smith that he wants him instead of Manning.

                      Part 2:
                      Kiper comes on ESPN again at the end of the Senior Bowl and says that A.J. Smith may draft Manning anyway just to trade him away and still pick up Rivers since he's not rated as high as Manning. Eli, his dad, and Eli's agent got wind of this and were not pleased.

                      Eli and Archie HAD NOTHING against the organization and it had everything to do with A.J. Smith using Eli as a pawn rather than valuing him as a franchise quarterback. The Giants wanted him and nobody else and that's why they wanted to come here!

                      I just wanted to tell that story and see if anyone remembers these reports back in 2004. I just love how A.J. Smith tried to turn this around to make Eli look bad.

                        Eh, you're probably right. But I like thinking Eli knew he had a better shot in New York than in San Diego.

                          Rivers = choker + classless

                          Eli = clutch + all class

                          I dont blame them for being bitter. But who wants to play for San Diego? They never have (and prolly never will) win anything. Archie is no fool.

                              Very good point. They are happy with Rivers yet mad with Eli not wanting to be there.

                              I guess it stems from the fact that it embarrassed their organization.

                              I am glad the trade happened. Rivers would not survive the media market or the defenses we play on a regular basis.

                              Say what you want but he plays in one of the worst divisions in football. They start off bad every year.

                              If i had to choose the top 3 again

                              Manning
                              Big Ben
                              Rivers

                              You know what...this is pointless. I'm just going to post it because i wasted like 3 minutes typing this.
