Hey, CHFF, I got a nickname for Philip Rivers!

4

Cold Hard Football Facts thinks Philip Rivers needs a nickname, and I got one for 'em. Y'all here at BFTB probably know what it is. Philip Rivers is the most consistently-good QB in history, at least in Passer Rating terms. Having a PR almost always above 80, never throwing more than two picks in a game, averaging about 8YPA over his career, the guy's like a machine. Isn't it fitting that the all-time PR leader's initials are P.R.? And if he's like a machine, I present to you: The PR Machine. Even more fitting, it has a double-entendre meaning. Rivers, by all accounts, is a God-fearing family man with way too many kids, who seldom swears, doesn't stay out at night ... and has a mostly-unearned reputation among league-wide fans as a loudmouthed jerk who talks trash and would be insufferable if he weren't so darned good. I believe this reputation to largely track the animosity generated by the "over there" status of the Chargers, the team's reputation as perpetual bridesmaids, and of course, envy over the Bolts' superior home weather and killer alternate uniforms. (Who'd have thought powder blue could be fearsome?) So, the QB with the highest Passer Rating in history is the QB of the most PR-challenged team in the League. What could be better? So, that's how I think Rivers should be known: the P.R. Machine. What do you think?
