    Saw this article written by former quarterback turned collumnist trent dilfer. He says no one comes close to making throws as hard as rivers and compares him to a modern era marino!

    2. Philip Rivers, Chargers

    My preseason take: Demonstrative, animated, tough, outspoken, fiery and hypercompetitive … consistently makes the most difficult throws in the NFL and it's not even close … one of very few quarterbacks who could flourish in Chargers-style system favoring throws 15 to 25 yards downfield (as opposed to slants, checkdowns and soft-spot zone plays) … remarkable efficiency considering how many high-risk throws he must make in game.


    My postseason take: Watching Rivers reminds me of the time I spent breaking down Dan Marino's film way back when. The constant seven-step drops, climbing in the pocket, delivering the ball with people in his face, putting relentless pressure on a defense, the hyper-aggressive mentality, the demonstrative behavior … put a No. 13 on his chest and you'd swear it was Marino out there. This highly explosive approach can be ideal for playoff football, but I wonder whether any quarterback can play that way through an entire postseason without turnovers catching up to him eventually.

    You better hope that they compare him to Montana after this year......Marino, though amazing, holds one distinction you guys can't live with.:no:

    Lots of ****** QB's have won SB's. Anyone who disregards Dan Marino as not being one of the two or three best QB's of all time is an ignorant dumbphuk. :flag:

    Exactly. It's not Marino's fault that he was saddled for most of his career with that has-been douchebag Don Shula. As for comparing Rivers to Marino, I've been saying that since Philip was in college. The two have alot in common--Weird delivery, lightning quick release, incredible accuracy, great ability to slide in the pocket and avoid pressure despite looking like they couldn't beat Concudan in a 40 yard dash.:lol:

    Can somebody edit the thread title?

    "Phillip" Rivers is starting to become about as much of a pet peeve of mine as Jake "Peavey" was.

    Yeh but Marino also had to face the 49ers in the superbowl. Who has ever beaten the 49ers in a superbowl? Exactly.

    Rivers is the greatest...
    He doesn't feel he has ever lost a game... he just ran out of time.

    huh? That doesn't make sense because the colts beat the bears in a superbowl just back 3 years ago remember. ANd the bucs, and ravens are different as are the jets bc they are 1-0 in the superbowl. Then 49ers are 5-0 and with the exception of the bengals matchups easily the most dominating super bowl team... Charger fans know that first hand...

    Marino had to deal with the same jaugernaut that humhrees and elway got raped by too.

    He's a Niners fan because he acknowledges their dominance in the 80s/early 90s?

    Moreso because he screams his admiration for other teams while taking veiled cheap shots at our current team or making absurd suggestions in every thread. I was just having a laugh, buzzkill. :icon_tease:

    I thought the current line of conversation was about Dan Marino and why he doesn't have any rings. :icon_shrug:

    I grew up in Miami and had never seen a QB like Marino. In my opinion and this is tough to say with Fouts being a BOLT i think Marino is the best passing QB i have seen in my lifetime. But with the of Rivers and BALLS he might be one of the great ones once we get the ring!!!!
