I know, I know: Philip Rivers is one of the most talented young quarterbacks in the NFL, blah blah blah. But he's also a classless dick -- the kind of dick Broncos fans would love to see caught in a zipper à la Little Ben (Stiller) inThere's Something About Mary
. For proof, eyeball this clip of his behavior at the end of a lopsided win over the Broncos in 2007. Sure, the target is Jay Cutler, who's kind of a dick himself (yes, I enjoyed watching him come up short to the Falcons yesterday). But that doesn't make Rivers any less of a tool -- and neither would it cause a Broncos victory in San Diego tonight to taste anything other than delicious.
