    Rivers and Ben would be interchangeable for me


    gigantic gap

    Eli


    The 2017 class has a chance to do similar things I suspect. It's going to be up there as far as QB classes go.

    I tend to agree that Ben and rivers are interchangeable if rivers wins one.

    And yes all classes have a chance but that’s a lot of winning to do.

    They'd have a good argument to make. That would make 5 SB's in 15 seasons. Plus Ben lost another one he played in. So if one QB draft class wins 30% of all the SB's since they were drafted that would be a solid argument for best draft class as far as I'm concerned. I don't which class would be better.

    It is. Mahomes and Watson are off to very good starts to their credit, however. The fact it's not a complete farce to compare them is very cool.

    it would be huge for Rivers legacy .... anytime a QB can get rid of the 'but' ....

    rivers and ben would then be viewed on the same level and rightfully so

    Justice would be served, I just hate it'd take a team accomplishment for fans to come to their senses.

    I personally think it’s is until one of them wins something, but that’s just me

    i am in the minority in that I don't really care if Rivers wins one or not ... don't really care for the guys personality but what do i know .... maybe he's a saint.

    Not for me. Their regular season #'s are similar.

    BigBen: 142-68-1 / 55,292 / 357-187
    Rivers: 117-89 / 54,299 / 373-174

    But it's the playoffs that give Rothlessburger the advantage.

    BigBen: 13-8 / 2 rings / 3 S.B. appearances
    Rivers: 4-5 / 0 rings / 0 S.B. appearances

    Yeah, in a way, it's really too bad Rivers always gets that asterisk and all the "yea buts". He would be a HOF lock with Eli's or Ben's rings.That 2004 class is definitely impressive. Especially the toughness of those three. Would like to see Philip get his. It's kinda like some of the guys in some other sports that had to wait so long with one team to get to the top of the mountain. Dirk Nowitzki in the NBA a few years ago, Alexander Ovechkin last year in the NHL come to mind.

    It will be interesting to see how the 2017 class plays out. Barring some catastrophic injuries, they will definitely be fun to watch as a fan.

    Agreed but to compare them to guys with hof resumes already is
    Laughable. Produce first

    The AFC West being strong, relatively, is a pretty 2013 and beyond phenomenon in the Rivers era.

    eh, the North is traditionally pretty competitive ....

    the 3 other teams in their divisions, respectfully, are probably a little better in the West but the Ravens are usually solid every year and the Bengals aren't bad (i think they've made the playoffs in 6 of the last 10 season). Obviously the Browns have been a dumpster fire but the divisions aren't that far apart.
