Yes, the Broncos won. But let’s not forget that Philip Rivers lost

Colin D. | October 16, 2012

For just one moment let’s stop celebrating the Broncos’ unlikely come-from-behind 35-24 win on Monday Night Football.

It’s important that we also take time to reflect on Philip Rivers and his dreadful 4-interception meltdown. Why? Becuase he’s a tool and we hate his sneering face. Chances are Chargers fans have seen enough of it, too – along with Norv Turner’s pocked neck.

Rivers is getting ripped in the San Diego media today, which is fabulous. The Broncos and Peyton Manning are being heaped with praise. Let’s take a look at some delicious quotations.

“Rivers has become at times, both gun-shy and overly aggressive. A bad combination for a quarterback.”
– Eddie Brown, Union Tribune

Manning showed that, indeed, it is different going against the Chargers in a Denver uniform.”
– Kevin Acee, Union Tribune

Manning is one of the best ever. He’s a killer.”
– Kevin Acee, Union Tribune

“Peyton Manning turned in a flawless half of football while Philip Rivers became Matt Cassel.”
– Bolts from the Blue (an SB Nation blog)

“Philip does not look like a quarterback that can win games for us anymore. There have been opportunities for him to win the game, but each and every opportunity seems to end in a turnover.”
– Bolt Beat (Fansided)

“The Broncos came out in the 2nd half and easily drove down the field like a player playing Madden on Rookie difficulty.”
– Bolt Beat

“In four quarters, Rivers had more turnovers than Pittsburgh (four) and Washington (five) have this season and as many as the Oakland Raiders … the Oakland Frickin’ Raiders … and four others each produced the last six weeks.”
– Clark Judge, CBS Sports

“To say it was laughable is an understatement, though most of us were, indeed, laughing.” – Deadspin

“Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning turned in a sensational second half, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers turned in a lousy second half, and the Broncos won a wild Monday Night Football game.”
– Pro Football Talk
