    I think you just proved my point. In the years where Rivers had an O-line and talent around him, he performed great (go ahead, look it up). I will agree that Romo and Rivers are similar, they both have talent and no O-line. It's hard to complete passes when you're constantly scrambling, getting hit or on your back. I also wouldn't use last years Broncos as an example of anything other than a good defense.

    Who's fault was it when Rivers had all that talent? Gate's when he was young, LT, Jackson, etc. I remember when there defense was tops in the league. Rivers has had a lot of turnovers the last few years. Not to mention the chargers play in a very weak AFC west. Bronco you have to agree that ROMO/RIVERS are similar? Alot of talent around them, and nothing to show for it but STATS! I'm not saying its all Rivers fault, but over forty turnovers by your QB dont help things.Speaking of talent, you dont need much to win the AFC west. I think you guys were 8-8, and won your conference last year.

    This thread reeks of dumb. Do you watch NFL football? I can see some blame falling on Turner. He's the head coach, after all. But blaming Rivers? That's just dumb. You don't have to look much farther than the San Diego offensive line to figure out what's wrong with that team. They made up for being bad at run blocking by being atrocious at pass blocking. It didn't help that their laughing stock of a GM let their best receiver leave via FA either. Gates is old and slow, Meachem and Floyd are never able to get separation (even against mediocre cornerbacks), Royal can't run routes (believe me, I'm a Broncos fan), Brown broke his leg before the season started, and Alexander only emerged at the end of the season. Rivers didn't look good this season, but it's not because he lacks talent.

    You got that right Pride. Just think that Rivers is overrated, and TOB made a mistake with the handling of Russell Wilson.

    Ship I was talking about the playoffs. What more important? Pulling for the Irish, and was pulling for UGA. Peyton dominates! Yeah in the regular season! LOL! Yanks, Lakers, Steelers. Since I was a kid these are the only teams I will ever pull for. When State is winning? Heck they havent won anything since 83. Thats called sticking with your team. I like UK because Duke, and UNC fans hate them. Plus always been a Tuby Smith fan. Ship you pull for STATS. I have a friend just like you. How can I be a Ravens fan and they are the Steelers main rival? Again sticking with my team. The Lakers, Steelers, and Yankees with through years without winning, and I stayed with them. If the Broncos dont win it you and the rest of the world will say, It wasnt Peyton's fault! The Saints said thanks!! LOL! You are still my boy ship!! LOL!

    "Ship you have the perfect name because you will jump ship from team to team."

    Said the guy whose favorite teams are as follows;

    MLB - NY Yankees
    NBA - LA Lakers
    NFL - Steelers
    College football - SEC
    College hoops - Kentucky, is it? I know...it's State when they're winning.
    Bet you were an avid Ravens fan the year they won their only SB.

    Just an fyi....I follow certain players for different reasons. If that causes you grief; don't care.

    "Peyton did alot not to get his team there in the playoffs." toadler

    Hilarious! I know what your deal is, big guy. Deny the obvious...that's part of your agenda. Truth is, you can't stand it because Peyton DOMINATES! If 'Bama wins, you gonna be a Tide fan?

    Ship I know defense wins Super Bowls, and Ben had a couple of bad games in the Bowl. Aganist the Seahawks I think it was his second yearin the league. Rivers has had players around him. How many Bowls has he been in? I think the Steelers knocked them out a couple of times. But one thing is for sure he never threw one away ( Peyton). Ben did alot to get us there in the playoffs. Peyton did alot not to get his team there in the playoffs. Head to Head Ben versus Peyton Ben one, Peyton zero. As for Phillip Romo Rivers keep not being a winner. Ship you have the perfect name because you will jump ship from team to team. I would hate for someone to do something bad at Duke you may jump there ship also. LIKE I SAID I DIDNT WANT BEN BACK, BUT IM NOT GOING TO STOP PULLING FOR THE STEELERS BECAUSE OF ONE PLAYER.
