/\ That was definitely my favorite bit of Phil Simms knowledge dropped during the game...Rivers has now gone longer than anyone ever without throwing 3 picks in a game to start his career. He passed Montana a few games ago.

You do realise this is Rodgers 2nd year starting meaning he had exactly 1 season so far to make the playoffs. He should make the playoffs this season baring a collapse. Rodgers also has a 96.6 QB rating all time though he has only attempted about 1100 passes, which would put him ahead of Rivers if he would have 400 more attempts.

I'm not so sure the argument that he is still too wet behind the ears can be used in conjunction with the thought that he is even in Roethlisberger and River's league in terms of postseason qualifications. Both of them eat playoff appearances for breakfast. Passer rating is not exactly a reputable stat either.

Yah cut Gates. what the hell, make catches, don't cause interceptions, you basketball playing scrub.

Rodgers. Just my preference.

I don't mean to hold his lack of playoff experience against him, but it is something he doesn't have yet, through no fault of his own. It will definitely come with time, but if you are to make the comparisons now, you would have to take into account Big Ben's 2 SB rings and the fact that Rivers' team hasn't missed playoffs since he became a starter. Playoffs and winning are the most important things in football and Roethlisberger and Rivers are already pretty good at that; I am sure A-Rod will be as well given time.

Ironically all 3 guys played excellent, even though I still took Rivers it's something about Ben being clutch you just have to factor in. Was there any doubt he would make a play to win? If you give him time at the end of a game it's a wrap, and now we can't even use the defense excuse for him since they don't have one anymore.



He's not flashy, won't always put up gaudy stats, but he may end up being in the argument of one of the most clutch QB's ever by the time he retires. Look at how many big plays he's made to this point, 4th qt comebacks, game winning drives, etc this soon in his career.


Rivers record in December is almost equally as impressive to me. I really don't think you can go wrong with either guy, I love all of them and think Rivers and Rodgers will win a SB eventually but they still need help around them just like any QB.

Rivers makes me all warm on the inside.

I went with Rivers. I think he's the better QB of the 3.
