    Thoughts on Whisenhunt going after "his" guy in Philip Rivers?

    Rivers is 33 and will enter next season looking to land the next major QB contract which may be upwards of $120M. As of today San Diego has around $25M to play with, but they also have a handful of guys they'll likely look to re-sign with that money, whereas the Titans could potentially have over $40M to use to sign Rivers to a 4-5 year extension, and have no scheduled free agents they must have back. With so many average players the Titans could easily float having Rivers high dollar contract on the books.

    I know this is a short term fix, but in a draft that guarantees nothing QB-wise, why not ensure we're competitive for at least the next few years?

    I dunno about a first and that contract that's a Lil steep. Maybe a second or a third and hunter!

    Man...At 33 that's a lot to ask for, but I see where you are going with it....I say no honestly. Until they can fix that line and protect someone, they are doomed.

    Then they can sign him to that massive contract and go broke

    Rivers has had some bad lines in the past and fared well, he's got those subtle pocket moves Mett doesn't.

    it would certainly limit what they could do in free agency

    I would rather draft a playmaker than waste a terrible season on a mediocre QB who might get us to one-and-done in the playoffs for four years which would then be followed by many years of awfulness.
