Midwest Sports Fans:
Late in last night’s Monday Night Football game, Philip Rivers was caught muttering something on the sidelines.
Here is animated GIF of Rivers’ mumble. Let’s watch it and then see if we can use our lip reading and context clue skills to figure out what he said.

My first thought was that Rivers is a Modern Family fan and was having flashbacks to the “Moon Landing” episode in which Ed O’Neill’s Jay would have undoubtedly agreed that Cameron was the “worst gay ever” for allowing this to happen in the men’s locker room.

But why would Rivers be thinking about Modern Family during the 4th quarter of a pivotal division game? Surely he wouldn’t be, so this probably is not a reasonable explanation.
Hmm, but maybe he was thinking about TV. Everyone’s favorite pop star Justin Bieber was the guest on The Tonight Show. Perhaps a teammate asked Rivers about his late night viewing plans and Rivers was letting said teammate know that he wouldn’t
BEST OF MAXIM
Philip Rivers wants to set the record straight.
TV cameras appeared to catch Rivers saying ''This is the worst day ever,'' moments after he fumbled away the snap on Monday night at Kansas City as the San Diego Chargers were driving to what appeared to be certain victory in the last minute of regulation.
Instead, the Chiefs recovered and went on to win 23-20 in overtime...
Philip Rivers has had what many would consider a brilliant NFL career. Since taking the reigns as starter 6 years ago, he’s become one of the NFL’s best QBs. But he’s failed to lead the talented Chargers to the Super Bowl, and on Monday Night threw his league leading 11th interception of the season. Adding insult to injury he then mishandled Nick Hardwick’s...
The television cameras zoomed in on Philip Rivers just after he had fumbled away the San Diego Chargers' chance to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in regulation.
It didn't take a professional lip-reader for the message to come across.
''This,'' Rivers said on the sideline, ''is the worst day ever.''
Only for the Chargers.
It was awfully good...
If you own one of these two guys in fantasy football, TRADE THEM NOW! It’s over my friends. I know the season is not even half over, but get rid of these toxic assets as soon as possible.
Philip Rivers threw for 369 yards last night. Sounds great right? Not so much. The guy threw two interceptions and lost a fumble without throwing a touchdown. To be quite honest, the Chargers...
Philip Rivers put his hands under center and called for the snap, one that would have moved the San Diego Chargers to the brink of victory.
They had trailed Kansas City the whole game, but with the ball at the Chiefs 15-yard line and Nick Novak's right leg warmed up, they were poised to escape with a win on the road.
Then everything went wrong.
The ball squirted loose before...
Philip Rivers might have had more difficult games from a statistical perspective, but Monday night’s loss had to be emotionally draining. Whatever the reason for his poor play, Rivers’ slide leaves the Chargers in a precarious situation in the deadlocked AFC West.
It was an all-time NFL blunder, the kind that will show up on "SportsCenter" countdowns and career retrospectives for years. With his team preparing to run down the clock and set up a chip-shot, game-winning field goal, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers mishandled a routine snap on a kneel-down play, fumbled the ball and handed possession to the Kansas City Chiefs...
Unlike the past few years, the San Diego Chargers started their season strong; leading the AFC West Division and racking up four wins early in the season. For a team that started last season at 0-1 before quickly sliding to 3-5 by this time last year, that’s a great record. The game against the New York Jets looked promising with the Bolts taking an early lead and ending the...

Up and down the sideline, the Kansas City Chiefs were telling each other the game wasn't over. Didn't matter that Philip Rivers was under center with less than a minute left, and that Nick Novak was poised to kick the winning field goal for San Diego.
Denny Green’s tirade after losing on prime time against that years top team – the Chicago Bears was probably the only time I ever hung on to watch a press conference that evening. That year, his Arizona Cardinals were a lowly team and after building a huge lead faltered in the end. Ever since then, his streak of anger in saying “They are, who we THOUGHT THEY WERE...
