Come on, Peter King

I’ve been using the lockout to work on some other things, but this just drove me nuts. From this week’s [Monday Morning Quarterback][3]:

I think for the players who voted Philip Rivers the 26th-best player in the NFL and Ben Roethlisberger the 41st, I give you these little facts:

Won-lost record: Roethlisberger 69-26, Rivers 55-25.

Playoff record: Roethlisberger 10-3, Rivers 3-4.

Super Bowl wins: Roethlisberger 2, Rivers 0.

Touchdowns: Roethlisberger 144, Rivers 136.

I mean, just saying.

First of all, Roethlisberger has played in 15 more games than Rivers has, so I would argue the touchdown stat favors Rivers. Secondly: won-loss record? Playoff wins? That’s just goofy. There are 11 guys on offense, 11 on defense. Let’s not give the QB all of the credit.

(And don’t get me started on this “beer nerdness” feature)

See you when the season starts.
