Regardless of whether a quarterback's team wins or loses, the signal-caller typically plays the key role in every outcome.
Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers on Monday against the Denver Broncos was a prime example.
Rivers played near flawless in the first half, and the Chargers led 24-0 when the second half kicked off. Long story short, pro football is 60 minutes, not 30.
San Diego ultimately lost, 35-24, and Rivers' performance during the final 30 minutes was one to remember...or forget, depending on who you were rooting for and the fantasy football implications.
To that end, Rivers hasn't been the only quarterback this season or of his era to finish horribly. With that, here's Rivers, along with some others we all know too well.
