One of the most enjoyable things about the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers last night (and there were many of them) was the sight of San Diego QB Philip Rivers's frequent temper tantrums. Ranting, complaining, yelling into his own helmet: He put on quite a show in defeat, and Twitter Nation definitely noticed. In fact, the main debate during and after the game was whether Rivers is a cry baby, a whiner or both. Continue for twenty hilarious examples, illustrated with images from the game.
Phillip Rivers is a huge fucking cry baby. And I know a thing or two about being a cry baby.

I hate playing San Diego. It's all Phillip Rivers this, Phillip Rivers that. The only Bowl he's won is the Big Fat Whiner Bowl.
