Bringing up old stuff: If you had your choice TODAY between the two quarterbacks, would you want Drew Brees or Philip Rivers?

Since Drew has left the Chargers, he has led his team to the Super Bowl and has led one of the few offenses that is more prolific than ours. He is mobile in the pocket and buys more time for his receivers to get open down the field. He is easily one of the best in the game.

Philip is one of the toughest son-of-a-guns to play quarterback and can throw the deep ball as good as anyone. He is a vocal leader (trash talker) and is respected in the locker room. He is one of the hardest working players in the game.

This should be an interesting vote. Would you rather have the current Chargers QB or the former?
