Peter King has this spot on response

I think for the players who voted Philip Rivers the 26th-best player in the NFL and Ben Roethlisberger the 41st, I give you these little facts:

Won-lost record: Roethlisberger 69-26, Rivers 55-25.
Playoff record: Roethlisberger 10-3, Rivers 3-4.
Super Bowl wins: Roethlisberger 2, Rivers 0.
Touchdowns: Roethlisberger 144, Rivers 136.

I mean, just saying.
It's the explosive offense that San Diego brings and Rivers became a starter in 2006 while Ben became a starter his first year. It's a passing league and Rivers excels at that.
