The Colts need a starting QB following Philip Rivers’ retirement

The Colts need a starting QB following Philip Rivers’ retirement”

"And from an individual standpoint, just knowing the truth is, I don't have that many years left".

"Philip Rivers made lasting impressions with every teammate and coach he competed with over the course of his 17 National Football League seasons".

To show how much of an old-timer Rivers had become, he gifted the huge news scoop not to ESPN or NFL Network, but rather to a first-rate, long-time newspaper beat reporter in San Diego he'd long ago befriended, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Even by opposing defensive linemen. "It is St. Sebastian's Feast Day, the day I played in the AFC championship without an ACL and now the day that after 17 seasons I'm announcing my retirement from the NFL".

Rivers finishes his career having thrown for 63,440 yards and 421 touchdowns.

"I can sit here and say, 'I can still throw it".

Before he was drafted by the Giants, yes the Giants, Philip Rivers came from NC State, becoming a full time starter the minute he hit the field. "But that's always going to be there". I'm not only appreciative of Philip's contribution to the Colts in 2020, but the impact he made in the NFL and in the game of football during his career.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Rivers was "one of the best that I've ever been around" at the quarterback position and described him as a "high-character man and a guy with great core values". "Thank you to all my coaches that helped me grow as a player and person".

In May, Rivers was named the coach-in-waiting at St. Michael. Rivers' eldest son, Gunner, is in seventh grade.

Rivers this season topped 4,000 yards passing for the 12th time in his career. "I got to do it".

"I put him in the same category as all those elite quarterbacks - extremely smart", McDermott said. "Not because I didn't like it".

He thanked officials for "putting up with all my fussing".

"As my playing career comes to an end, the next chapter begins". He was the heart and soul of the Chargers organization for so many years and, as I've said before, we can not thank Philip enough for laying it on the line each and every play with us.

Rivers' retirement means that next in line to try to beat Favre's quarterback record is none other than Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, according to Pro Football Talk. This year felt different.
