    Philip Rivers keeps on chugging along and so does the quarterback comparison.

    After dispatching Jay Cutler and Peyton Manning in the past two weeks, Rivers and the San Diego Chargers visit quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC divisional playoffs

    Rivers and Roethlisberger have often been compared since they were first-round picks in 2004. Rivers was the No. 4 pick and Roethlisberger was the No. 11 pick. Both players have excelled early in their careers and are leaders of their teams

    The following is a look at Roethlisberger and Rivers in the regular season

    Ben has not had a stellar year. Our o-line is missing a piece or two without question.

    As much as I have professed Rivers to be the "Chosen One", it all does not mean **** until he gets us the hardware. :bolt:

    It means absolutely dick.

    Here it comes. :bolt:

    I heard on 1090am this morning that the weather report looks grim, sleet, and snow storm. If this is the case, I think the QB's will be mute, and need Sproles/Bennet to step up again BIG TIME!

    GO BOLTS! :bolt:

    The word is "moot". Unless you mean the QB's won't be able to talk for some reason.

    Have the Chargers played in any inclement weather games this year? I would look at it as an advantage for Pitt since they live in that environment, but since players come from all over it isn't a big a deal as the sportscasters make it out to be.
    Ben had an outstanding stat year last year, but our OC is a moron. I think his meddling has taken away our style of play....of course we don't have a Bettis anymore either.

    Have the Chargers played in inclement weather? I thought you were a Steelers fan?

    Remember the 11-10 game in November? It was below freezing and snowing, much like it will be Sunday.

    Expect another close game.

    GO CHARGERS!:bolt:

    yeah, yeah, when I typed it, I thought it might be "moot," but felt it wasn't an issue, as most would understand what I was saying. Do you have a contribution to this thread, or just some sort of spelling monitor? :icon_tease:

    I think cold weather helps us because our pass defense is average at best. But with Jamal heathly, Scifres putting it on the 10 and the Steelers poor o-line play I dont see how they score more than 10.

    When we're not playing them - I have love for the Steelers - plus Ben makes me laugh in his pimp suits hehe.

    I certainly hope they get some kind of o-line help [not this week] for Ben otherwise... he's going to be the next Trent Green :(
