View Full Version : Blitzburgh welcomes the Chargers

You may remember the classic, often scrutinized 11-10 battle in week 11. It was the only time in NFL history a game ended with a 11-10 score due in part to the refs bizarre reverse call of Troy Polamalu's fumble return for a touchdown. The Steelers controlled most of that game out gaining the Chargers 410 to 218. QB Ben Roethlisberger was 31 of 41 for 308 and a 96.4 rating while QB Philip Rivers was a mediocre 15 of 26 for 164 and 2 ints. Rivers was anything but mediocre the entire season, leading the NFL in touchdowns with 34 and a 105.5 QB rating. This is a direct credit to what playing at Heinz Field against Blitzburgh can do to a great quarterback, a Pro Bowl snubbed quarterback at that...

Good read:yellowthumb: It still baffles me that Rivers wasn't a pro bowl pick and if I'm not mistaken Brett Favre was? what the hell?!?!:lol:

I know, just an example of a player getting the nod based on his name and reputation. Didn't have a terrible year but Rivers lead the NFL in touchdowns and passer rating! Like Peter King says, the pro bowl should be voted on by each head coach, 1 coordinator per team, 1 scout per team and the press. Instead of the fans voting cuz it is flawed. Imagine the Pro Bowl being players who really have the best year at their respective position! (other snubs this year, John Abraham, Ryan Clady)
