NFL.com Senior Analyst Pat Kirwin created his ranking for the top QBs in the league. Instead of ranking them overall, he grouped them all in segments of five and here is where Philip Rivers landed on that list:
Philip is in the very top group of the league, but he is missing one thing that the rest of those guys have. He doesn’t have that championship ring YET! He can take over the top spot if he starts bringing in the Super Bowl rings!
The next closest quarterback from the AFC West does not show up until group D. We SHOULD be winning the AFC West every year with the competing quarterbacks in this division.
Take a look at the list that they created on NFL.com and see if you agree with the groupings.
