The only problem for SD now is.... is Rivers a a Leaf? Wouldn't that be horrible. 2 times passing on a superstar Manning.
There's not gonna be a Manning in next year's draft but the way I see it even if Rivers is a bust they still have two first round picks next year plus they have a third this year and a fifth next year. I don't think Rivers will be a bust personally but even if he is they will be able to make up for it with all that they aquired. The Chargers were gonna draft Manning from the begining, they said that in order for them to trade down it would have to be a blockbuster deal. I don't think they were gonna be trading Eli for much less than what they got.
