Actually,...Rivers was more productive at the college level than both Ben and Eli. We were set to take him (Rivers) with the 11th pick. Ben was told shortly before the draft by the Giants that he was their Guy. (Though they coveted Eli,..but thought him going to San Diego was an almost forgone conclusion). Long story short,.... She-li pulls a fast one,...and the Giants pull the trigger. Marty coached Rivers at the senior bowl that year and was impressed enough by him to go his direction. The rest is History for us,...if Eli hadn't Flaked,...Ben would very likely be a Giant. You've got a potential franchise stud in Rivers,..just give him chance.

I don't know much about the college football, but I guess Big Ben was destined to be a Steeler at birth by God.

The gods were definitely smiling down upon us when the Steelers were able to get Ben, chargerboy, but give Rivers a shot and see what he can do for the Chargers' offense and the team as a whole. He just may be a diamond in the rough - only time will tell. Keep the faith!

Being a BGSU alum and also a big Steelers fan, there was a time I must confess when I didn't like Big Ben too much. I believe it was the '03 MAC championship game, when Ben made the BG defense look like a bunch of "special" people (not real hard to do.) by throwing for 440 yds. I remember thinking, "Who is this jerk whooping my Falcons?", and "Man, I hope the Steelers get him!" Well, the rest they say is history.

Who's this Rivers guy?

Well we know he was on the college level, but we don't know who he is on the NFL level. Kid is still young. Hard to knock a guy when you haven't seen much of him on the NFL level. I wouldn't give up on the kid just yet. At least give him a chance.
