Let us put it another way - would you rather - A) Shake this man's hand, or B) push his face into a muddy puddle?
Some assume Rivers is the best of this QB class, obviously ignoring the fact that he's the only one who has yet to win a title.
Conversely, we assume those people are dicks. And probably fans of the band, Nickelback.
But despite our personal distaste for this jagoff, you can't really deny that he's among the league's best QB's (not to mention biggest dickheads).
So serious that he currently leads the league in passing yards (PS - take a gander at who's got the best completion percentage)...
The bottom line is, the Chargers are airing the ball out at a rapid rate. And let's just say, without Troy to make mind-blowing interceptions, and with his substitute Tyrone Carter still ailing, we have at least substantial cause to worry.
If we had to quantify it using the Homeland Security Terrorism Index (or whatever you call that thing), we'd put the Steelers somewhere between yellow and orange...
As for his history with the Steelers, we really only have to look at last year's stats as a reference.
Rivers and the Chargers visited Heinz Field twice in 2008, both times in extremely cold weather, both times in losing efforts.
For you stat monkeys, here is exactly how #17 faired against the Steelers defense each time:
Really this is all to prove a point that shouldn't require visual evidence to prove - Philip Rivers is a top notch Quarterback in this league.
Is he better than Ben? Did San Diego make the right choice between him and Brees?
Who knows. And frankly, who cares.
But, will he single handily beat the Steelers?
