  1. Come on! Phillip Rivers has carried his team on his back the last few years even when LT was with him and he was ALMOST great an able to pull off a playoff appearance if it wasn’t for the bad special teams play! Joe Flacco is no where near Rivers! It’s kind of an insult to Rivers’ career and what he’s had to go thru. I guarantee Flacco doesn’t win the passing title last year or win 9 games if he had to put up with all Rivers did. That would be a 4-12 team at best! Why does everybody hate Rivers for? I just can’t wait til Rivers finally gets his ring and people can stop comparing him to these random QB’s.

  2. Rivers and Flacco are two OVERRATED quaterbacks who haven’t won squat … Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger 4 have Super Bowls between them … Even Jim Kelly went to 4 Super Bowls … Until Rivers and Flacco have won something … they will be average at best…

    How is Rivers over rated? Do you not watch how he plays and how he elevates rookies or any other random receiver look good. Passing title last year with all those mishaps that happens to the team. Who’s Ajirotutu? I bet you know who he is cuz of Rivers. Flacco has that defense and a good running game Rivers doesn’t. And Eli Manning? That’s one of those Trent Dilfer winning a superbowl with the Ravens type thing. He didn’t do real good that season, stuff just happened to bounce the Giants way those playoffs. Come on man if it’s something that is personal against Rivers cuz he “talks poop” or whatever don’t hate on his game.
