The Steelers "D" should be able to contain Rivers. I'm just wondering if they got those mistakes out of their system against Cincy. This should be a great battle Sunday night.

Touchy touchy. I am not saying Ben wasa a bad pick at all, but you are a fool to think HE won all of those games. I just think Rivers is a better fit for our system, thats all. I don't care about last year anymore, I care about the future.

I think this b/c everything leading up to the draft had us taking Rivers. I was really surprised when he went after Eli. Rivers is who Cowher really wanted. I can try to look some stuff up on the draft that year if you would like.

What are you talking about?!

sure Ben hasnt started off great but how would you do if you were in a accident then had your apendix [sp?] taken out. even if your not playing QB for a pro team im sure you wouldnt be 100%

He should be better now that he had the bye week to help recover, same with Polumalu.

and now i finaly get to see Reid do the returning

Do I sense a little sarcasm?

Sounds like sarcasm to me...I think. Hey Findlayref, do you ever see Leyland or Big Ben around town anymore? I lived in Wood County for a couple of years back in the early 90's.

I did not state Ben was solely responsible for wining all those games, but he ceratinly was on the field when those games were won (while Rivers was holding out and then carrying a clipboard in San Diego). Ben's team won all those games - that is why they call it a system. If the purpose of a system is to win games, I find it difficult to believe that Rivers would have done any better in "our system" over the last 2 years than Ben.

That having been said, since you not only believe me to be incorrect but a "fool" for challenging your opinion (thanks for the nuanced response), please indicate exactly what it is about Rivers that makes him a better fit for "our system," given that his vast NFL experience to date consists of being on the field when the Chargers beat the 2 worst teams in the league and lost to the Ravens this season (I assume you are not basing your opinion on the Denver game last season or Rivers career at NC State). References to specific types of pass patterns where Rivers is a more effective passer than Ben specifically will be appreciated.

And to those posters who apparently did not get it, my prior post was sarcastic - our starting QB played on teams that went 14-1 his rookie year and won the Super Bowl his second year; anyone who seriously contends Philip Rivers would have done any better is not making an observation that is based in reality.

I apologize - you may be correct

I thought Ben would return to form tonight - the last 2 INTs have clearly proven me wrong
