He's a volume passer on a team that had a brief moment but never ultimately got to the promised land.
Compare him to Eli and Ben who were in the same draft class (along with JP Losman, Matt Schaub, and Luke McKown) and what are we supposed to really remember or appreciate him for?
Other than the memes, I mean, get that he's been a godsend for memes.
He’s 6th all time passing yards and tds, he only played in 4 games his first 2 seasons. Almost everybody in the top 10 are volume passers.
He’s going to get in, just a matter of when.
I’m only talking about what will happen. A discussion on what should happen is different.
Some people have volume *and* efficiency. And don't average 17 interceptions per game
But my argument isn't that Rivers won't make the HoF (should or shouldn't I don't really care, the HoF is kind of meaningless to me), it's that he's not really done anything in his career that stands out to me.
Other than being very ease to meme with.
