Rivers named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year


Today, the Pro Football Writers of America named Philip Rivers the 2013 Comeback Player of the Year. I am happy to see No. 17 get honored because it means the rest of the league noticed the weight he carried for San Diego this year. Rivers finished 2012 with 26 touchdowns, 15 interceptions and a quarterback rating of only 88.6. This year, Rivers improved dramatically with 32 touchdown passes and a 105.5 quarterback rating. This award also speaks to the impact of Mike McCoy, who adds Rivers to the list of quarterbacks he has gotten elevated play from (Jake Delhomme, Kyle Orton, Tim Tebow). If Rivers can improve even more in 2014, and the defense improves, this team has a real shot at the AFC West crown.
