I have seen his season stats and they are impressive, but his performance yesterday was woefully short of "best in the league". I have never been a PR
admirer, but I did think that the bolts got the better QB when they traded Eli to the Jints.
I was really disappointed with the play of both QB's last night. Peyton was slightly better than his usual playoff performance drop off, but nowhere near the standard expected of a league MVP (especially as a multiple recipient). Rivers, however, was much worse. Some posters have blamed his OL, but he made way too many poor decisions, especially ones where he just switched off and threw the ball to the ground.
I have never really liked his technique, as he looks more like he's "putting the shot" for the Olympics than throwing a football. He is not mobile (though there are many pocket passers slower), and never looks as if he can run and throw at the same time. I know he has done so in the past, but last night he ran like a neandrethal with his hands low in front of him. He can and should thank Sproles and Schifres profusely, because without them he could have been blamed for a loss to a lack luster Colts team.
Best in the league? Wow what a turnaround from last years with TFB!!!!
