Teen outshines Chargers QB Phillip Rivers in QB skills competition

Philip Rivers gets beat by a high schooler, doesn't confiscate tape
By Chris Chase
Last week LeBron James made news after getting dunked on by a college player at a pick-up game and then confiscating tapes of the play. In my post about the unseen dunk on our college basketball blog, The Dagger, I wrote:

The dunk would have been a temporary embarrassment for LeBron. Let's say the video was put on YouTube. It blows up for a bit, dominates blogs for 36 hours, everyone has a good chuckle and then it's forgotten about.

Philip Rivers(notes), your 36 hours begin now.

In an incident eerily similar to LeBron's Dunkgate, the San Diego Chargers quarterback was schooled by a younger, less-experienced player during an activity at one of his camps. The only difference is, Rivers didn't send one of his lackeys to grab the tape of said incident to make sure it never saw the light of day. (Or he did and the lackey wasn't quick, or intimidating, enough to accomplish said task.)

Somewhere, a single tear is falling down MJD's cheek.

A high school kid? Really, Philip? That's totally not brahsome.

Shoot, at least LeBron got dunked on by an NCAA basketball player. This kid -- Will Nunn is it? -- probably had to go home after the competition to practice vocabulary words for the SAT before taking the head cheerleader out for an early dinner at Applebee's.

It should also be noted that unlike the old NFL quarterbacks challenges, the targets that Rivers threw at were stationary, making the tires like most of the receivers Rivers has thrown to over the years.

I had to double check and make sure I didnt post this in ninertalk
All I saw was Rivers throwing a couple slightly off-target passes and the kid throwing a couple of more accurate passes.
Rivers isn't going to nail every pass he throws.
What's the big friggin' deal here anyway?
At least with Lebron he got dunked on, as in, he was sorta defeding the guy when the dude went up on him.
This was like a football camp for kids. Does anyone really think a pro will try that hard at somethng like this?

Big deal, really doubt the kid could handle being pressured in the NFL like Rivers can.
The difference is Rivers got beat throwing a couple balls into tires standing on the ground while LeBron got dunked on.


Did he steal the tape so it wouldn't be ever shown to the public?
I have a feeling that somewhere, somehow...hidden nearby was Belicheat filming the QB competition.

With his mechanics, i could fkn beat rivers in a skills competition. he is the reason why the chargers wont win the super bowl, i live in a sea of charger fans and i know all i need to know about phil.
yeah but you know kid is pulling mad p***y now in high school.
ehh. QB skill competitions are not that important. Put a defender in the kids way and if he still does good id be impressed.
good.

rivers is a f*ggot douchebag
