Default Philip Rivers is quietly having an "elite" season ...

1200 yards (300 avg per game)
11 TDs only 2 picks (this stat is noticeable, because common opinion was Rivers had been slowly transforming into an INT machine)
118 QBR (only Peyton Manning is better after 4 games; the next in line is Rodgers, and he's only holding steady at 105)

These stats are pretty impressive. San Diego is 2-2, but they're playing in the same division as Denver and KC, so the post season seems only accessible via a wild-card spot. Rivers has been carrying the load, because quite honestly their defense doesn't seem to be doing much, and he's putting up these stats with no real offensive threats minus Gates.

PR was always one of those QBs right on the outside looking in when it came to that "elite" tag, but the past few years it seemed he was quietly sinking into mediocrity when compared to how great he had been playing when he first hit the scene and was tearing shit up. Now, thus far this year, he's quietly showing everyone he's still got it.

I wouldn't say "quietly." A primetime game, a game against the Cowboys which I'm sure brought in more viewers, and a spotlight segment on NFL Network last night. People are definitely noticing.

I've been following his situation pretty closely since I took a flier on him late in my fantasy football draft, and he's been unreal. I've been hesitant to play him over Wilson, but his performance against Dallas completely won me over. For people who follow SD football, what's the biggest difference you've seen this year over last? I've noticed when he has a passing option out of the backfield, that's when he's been at his best in his career...and he and Woodhead have been a pretty nice duo for them this season.
