Erm. maybe in so much that they are both immobile QB's who spread the ball around, but that Rivers throwing motion is reminiscent of no one but Rivers. He could be playing in a plain jersey among 31 other QBs on a field and i could tell you who Rivers was just by looking at his arm.

Just re-watched the Packers game.  If I didn't know better, I would almost think #18 was under center for Indy.  So many of Rivers' play were reminiscient of Manning.

Rivers has resembled Manning in many ways for a long time.  Neither was the most physically gifted QB, but they make up for it by beating you with their brains.

 

I've long considered Rivers to be a Peyton Jr, with his own quirks added in of course.  The main difference, aside from throwing motion,  is that Peyton was always known to be a thoroughbred, while Rivers has always been the counted out underdog...even dating back to college (SEC teams wanted him to play TE, which is why he ended up going to NC State).  I truly believe that if Rivers ended up going somewhere other than San Diego, folks would view his career in a much different light.  I'm just thrilled that he got out of that dumpster fire while he still has another year or two left in the tank.

Well also the field commander aspect, IMO. Lots of guys manage games well, but some more than others just LOOK like commanders and Rivers us one for sure.

Yes, sir.  I wasn't really focusing on the motion though...more the movement in the pocket, and the result.  :^)

I can’t find it but isn’t there a clip where he blocks and Jeff Saturday goes crazy saying I saw that or something like that

Yeah but Peytons happy feet were just as goofy looking as Rivers throwing motion.

My favorite Peyton audible was when he yelled out BONANZA BONANZA, JAPAN JAPAN JAPAN JAPAN - I will never forget Jeff Saturday on the sideline say WTH was that :funny:

In my search for the block above, i found this gem.  I hadn't seen it before and it is awesome!

    • Kick tires and maybe a 1 year prove it deal. 
    • They traded up from 7 to 5 to select Trev Alberts.   They traded 2 first round picks, which ended up being number 15 in 1989 and #3 in 1990, to get Fredd Young who played just three seasons with Indianapolis before retiring because of an arthritic hip. He finished his Colts career with two sacks in the blue and white.
    • I sure hope not......spelling & pronouncing his name will give lots of people fits........especially me!
    • Preseason is more for building your final few players on the roster and making those final decisions on trades, cuts, FA pick ups, who to put on the practice squad or who to pick up from other teams PS/cuts. Now 5-10+ years ago iwas was much more meaningful.  The standard was always that the starters would play 1 Q the first game, 2Q the second, 3Q the third, then rest for the 4th. Now most of the time/teams rest the starters for all the preseason and might play then 1Q for a few games. However most of your top playoff teams will stick with the old standard. Playing your starters does help with getting in sync(esp the Oline), even helps with injuries. I was a player, nothing helped me more to prepare my body for full 100% contact then preseason and working my way up. Practices can help but now a lot of teams wont even have contact in practice. This I feel drives more soft issue injuries now.    The NFL and the teams dont make as much money as you think on Pre Season games. yes they get the season ticket holders money(my money). But in most cases the stadiums are only 50-75% full in the first few games and extremely empty on on the 4th game. They lose a ton of money on preseason not having the fans there to buy merch, food, drinks, parking etc. The NFL would much rather it be a meaningful game that fans would make the effort to go and stay.     
    • Like I said he'll be lucky to win half as many lol.......actually I was being sarcastic but didn't use the emoji    Of course he won't win half as many or seriously doubt he wins 2 and probably wins zero
