Philip Rivers called the Giants 'pathetic' for benching Eli Manning.
“I honestly thought it was pathetic, really,” Rivers told reporters at Chargers practice. “The guy, he’s been out there 210 straight games with no telling how many bumps and bruises and injuries for his team. Won two Super Bowls, MVPs.
“You just feel like the guy has earned the opportunity, if they are deciding in fact to go in the other direction, you feel like he’s earned the opportunity to finish it off, finish off these last five weeks.”
