If this guy was playing with a good WR corps he'd be a 5,000-yard passer and 13-game winner every season.
As it is he is still going to throw for 40,000 yards and 250 TDs in his NFL career. He's only 31 and has 178 career TDs and 26,000 yards.
He is better than any QB we have had in a long time, including Green.
I have always thought Rivers would eventually get it done but every year it seems more likely he never will. He has done a job making average WR better but he also has melted down and the wrong time enough to make it more than a trend. Last week both his INT's were not only terrible but costly. The first, which was one of the worst INT's all year, would have been a game timing field goal if he throws it away.
Floyd is not a borderline #2. He is a solid #2. Rivers and Romo just don't seem to have it in the big moments. Sometimes its not all their fault. It may just be a combo of cursed and anti-clutch.
Edit: In response to your edit, yes he is better than what we have had but I am not sure he is ever going to lead a team to a SB. I wouldn't be upset having him, but the goal here is winning a SB. Not sure if he has what it takes. Every year he makes it harder to believe. Its not just whats around him, its what he does in certain moments.
