What to Watch For: Drew Brees vs. Philip Rivers

Since the beginning of the 2010 season, Philip Rivers has thrown 37 interceptions in 36 regular-season games. Over that same span, Drew Brees has thrown 41 interceptions in 36 regular-season games. I suppose the biggest difference is that Brees has 11 fumbles in that span while Rivers has 19. Still, any complaint about Rivers turning the ball over a lot can be said for Drew Brees as well.

The funniest thing about these two turnover machines might be that their respective teams are built around them because they're so talented when they're not giving the opposing team the ball. This means that, much of the time, the fate of the team is directly tied to, on a week-to-week basis, whether or not the QB can keep from making stupid passes. Oh, and also whether or not the defense can get the opposing QB to throw stupid passes.

-no rings
-no MVP's
-no major records broken

Why do people keep attaching the adjective "elite" to Philip Rivers?

As far as I could tell there was only 1 elite quarterback in that picture and the bolts were dumb enough to let him walk

Same reason they do with Ryan, Vick, and a few others that are so elite their names escape me!
