Chargers got a steal in Rivers deal |


Though Eli has a Super Bowl win under his belt, does anyone dispute the reality that, if Rivers had been the quarterback of the 2007 Giants, Rivers would have a Super Bowl win, too? Here's the reality. If Rivers had been the Giants' quarterback, he wouldn't have needed a memorable escape (and a helmet-aided catch) to secure the victory, because the Giants wouldn't have been playing from behind. Rivers has generated far better career numbers, despite having a supporting cast that doesn't measure up to the Giants' rosters in the days before Plaxico Burress sent a bullet through his thigh. Editor's Note: I think this is the first nice thing I've ever seen Florio write about the Chargers or a Chargers player.
