Philip Rivers Is Easily a Hall of Fame Quarterback Antworten

After starting off 0-4 , Philip Rivers surged back. Rivers, the Chargers’ undisputed starter since 2006, rallied the Chargers back to winning ways. In all, the Chargers won 8 of their last 12 games in 2017, finishing 9-7 to cap off the season. But once again Rivers’ combination of cheerleading on the sidelines and on-field heroics were in vain. The Chargers didn’t make the playoffs. They haven’t since 2013.Nonetheless Rivers played better than you think. The 36 year old quarterback threw for 96 passer rating, 28 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions in 2017. Good enough to rank Rivers 9th, 5th and 9th among NFL QBs in these metrics respectively. But perhaps even more improtantly, Rivers logged 7.9 yards per attempt (Y/PA)and 7.60 Net Adjusted Yards Per Attempt (ANY/A), two of the better metrics that help us isolate QB efficiency. Indeed, 2017 Rivers easily bested quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning, in spite of the 4 Super Bowls between them. How? Well, in QB efficiency of course: passer rating Youth Isaac Rochell Jersey , yards per attempt and net yards per attempt. In fact, Rivers’ career numbers in these categories match up with some of the best quarterbacks in NFL History.His career passer rating? An absurdly good 94.6, ranked 8th best all-time. Just behind Peyton Manning. His Y/PA? 11th of all time, ahead of Peyton Manning. His ANY/A? 7th, behind only quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson.All the aforementioned quarterbacks are going to the Hall of Fame—so shouldn’t Rivers go too?Sure, they’ve all won Super Bowls cementing their status as future Hall of Famers, but Dan Marino never won that prize and still has a golden jacket.The numbers show that Rivers has outperformed expectations in almost every way. The big red dog is the room is Rivers’ lack of playoff success, but that can be attributed as much to lack of franchise support than lack of ability on River’s part. To compare, Matt Ryan routinely goes to the playoffs with his talented stable of weapons (basically Julio Jones). Yet Ryan has a lower career passing rating, YPA and ANY/A than Rivers. This basic analysis shows us how underrated Philip Rivers is.The calculus alsoshows us that Rivers is on another level to Matt Ryan, a good quarterback in his own right.River’s incredible overperformance—without studs like Julio Jones to help—lends credence to River’s efficiency rankings that sit on par with Peyton Manning Color Rush Kyzir White Jersey , and ahead potential Hall of Famers’ like Big Ben and Eli Manning. So say it with me, “Philip Rivers is easily a Hall of Fame quarterback.” Jahleel Addae saw Russell Wilson's pass coming in his direction. He didn't see David Moore running open behind him in the back of the end zone, and as the pass floated past, Addae reached out his right arm as far as he could."I got my last fingernail on it," Addae said. "I barely snipped it."Another last-second challenge for the Los Angeles Chargers defense. Another victory for the surging Chargers, holding off Wilson's late rally for a 25-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.The Chargers won their fifth straight, putting a capper on Philip Rivers' 200th consecutive start with another clutch defensive stand. Rivers threw two touchdowns, Melvin Gordon ran for 113 yards, yet those two were standing on the sideline watching after a pass interference call against Michael Davis on the final play of regulation gave Seattle an untimed down and a chance to force overtime.And just like they did in London when the Chargers denied Tennessee's 2-point conversion attempt to preserve a 20-19 win, the defense came through again."It shouldn't have come down to that but it did," Rivers said. "We found a way to win. These kinds of wins are huge."Rivers threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyrell Williams and 30 yards to Mike Williams, and let the Chargers defense stymie Wilson until the final minutes. Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start.Desmond King provided the deciding points for Los Angeles (6-2) by stepping in front of Wilson's pass for Moore and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown with 6:44 remaining to give the Chargers a 25-10 lead.Wilson managed to make the final minutes nervous for Los Angeles."We had a chance to win a game that's right there for us Color Rush Philip Rivers Jersey ," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "It was going to be dramatic, but we're OK about that."Wilson hit Nick Vannett on a 6-yard TD with 1:50 remaining to cut the Chargers' lead to one score. Seattle got the ball back with 1:24 left at its own 22 and after two completions and a roughing the passer penalty on Melvin Ingram, the Seahawks were at the Chargers 44 with 50 seconds left. Wilson scrambled for 16 yards to the Chargers 28 and, after a spike, Seattle had 30 seconds left.Seattle (4-4) got a break when Davis was called for pass interference in the end zone on the final play of regulation against Tyler Lockett, putting the ball at the 1 for an untimed down. Seattle's J.R. Sweezy was called for false start backing the play up to the 6, and Wilson's final attempt for Moore in the back of the end zone was partially tipped by Addae and fell incomplete."It's like winning a playoff game," Chargers defensive lineman Brandon Mebane said. "That was like a playoff game."Wilson was 26 of 39 for 235 yards, and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Jaron Brown on Seattle's opening drive.Rivers became the fourth quarterback in league history to start 200 straight games, joining Brett Favre, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning. Favre started an NFL-record 297 straight times in the regular season. This wasn't like his 2010 performance in Seattle when Rivers threw for 455 yards, but he made key throws at important times Youth Austin Ekeler Jersey , especially in the first half. The Chargers averaged 10 yards per play in the first half and scored touchdowns on three of their five possessions, the last one taking just 55 seconds to find the end zone on a 30-yard catch-and-run by Mike Williams.Gordon averaged 7.1 yards per carry and ran through huge holes in the second half. His 34-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter gave him 34 TDs in his past 36 games after going scoreless in his first 14 games.Seattle also didn't have answers for Keenan Allen, who had 124 yards on six receptions."It's great, any time we can go on the road, loudest place in the league and get a win the way we did," Allen said. "I thought it was dominating, outside the points we missed, but pretty great."INJURIESCarson didn't play much after the first quarter, spending most of the time on the sideline with a wrap on his upper left leg due to a hip injury. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench. ... Seattle played the second half without starting strong safety Bradley McDougald due to a knee injury. He had been questionable on the final injury report. ... Guard D.J. Fluker injured a leg in the fourth quarter.REMEMBERING PAULSeattle played a lengthy tribute video honoring owner Paul Allen who died on Oct. 15 due to complications from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. They also had a moment of silence for Allen and had the "12 Flag" that's raised before every game lowered to half-staff.Seattle also had logos added to the field reading "PGA" similar to the patches the team had added to its uniforms."We love the spirit that he stood for," Carroll said. "He affected all of us... his wisdom and his charity and his love for this area."KICKING WOESChargers kicker Caleb Sturgis might be looking for a new job after missing two extra points and a 42-yard field goal attempt. Sturgis is the first kicker with a missed extra point and missed field goal in three straight games since Raiders kicker Jim Breech in 1979.UP NEXTChargers: Travel to Oakland to face the Raiders.Seahawks: At NFC West foe Los Angeles Rams.
