Is Philip Rivers the best QB to never win a title? | The Will Cain Show

  • Published on Jan 12, 2019
  • With Philip Rivers still putting up big numbers, Will Cain gives his take on where the Los Angeles Chargers' signal-caller stands on the list of great quarterbacks, and athletes, to never win a championship. Cain also breaks down why Rivers escapes the criticism, but also the credit, that some other great quarterbacks receive.

    I think the answer always comes back to the market. The market allows him not get the attention which lead to praise, criticism or even eye balls on him at work. The market also probably dictated the talent that he could work around to get Super Bowls like Ben and Eli.

    Rivers s damn good QB, but he's not a productive QB when the playoff comes, surrounded with good players this time, but somehow (he/they) can't find away to get to superbowl, he is almost out the league soon.

    Dan Marino is the best to never get a title. If he would’ve won at least one who still be considered greatest even though he still is goat to me but that’s my preference.

    I am picking the Patriots to win this game, but it is the least confident I have ever been in a Patriots playoff pick. This Chargers D is the real deal and LA's offense will put up points. SUPER close, likely I am wrong, Patriots win. Full breakdown/prediction on my channel today.

      Leo Dancor I heard 4 consecutive Super Bowls.. meaning year after year.. you’d rather make 4 Super Bowls back to back and not win none? Personally I would rather go to nun (like my jags) than go to 4 straight and not come out with one title wth

    I'm sure he's TIRED of hearing, how Eli and Ben BOTH have rings, and they all came from the same draft. Personally I don't think he's good enough for the HOF
    Dan Marino and Jim Kelly are the best of the non winners, in my opinion

    • Leo Dancor

    I dislike that QBs are measured by Super Bowls. Can’t change what happened but....Rivers should’ve gotten to a super bowl in 2006. They had the game won against New England, Brady threw a pick and the safety fumbled instead of going down. Patriots go down and score. Chargers were 14-2, I think they would’ve beaten the Colts and got to the super bowl. Marino is arguably the greatest QB ever but no ring. Rivers same boat, he’s a better QB then Manning and Roethlisberger

    • Charles Buckley
      Charles Buckley 4 months ago

      Charles Buckley let me rephrase when I say manning. I’m talking about Eli not Peyton...statistically he’s absolutely in same category as Roethlisberger. Just doesn’t have the two Super Bowls. And gee look what happened since 2008 for the Big Ben hasn’t had the same defenses that carried them. Team sport not QB sport

      +SkrtElijah look at stats and tell me who was inconsistency. Vick best season was 21td and 6 ints. Vick wasn't elite and will not be in the hof discussion. He was okay, that's it. Russell Wilson and cam took their team to the superbowl; did vick? No, instead he decides to be lazy and be the same mediocre qb that took the Falcons nowhere. Oh, and let's not talk about who has more wins. Let's speak the truth about vick. He was an okay qb, who can run.
