Great QB's (and I don't even consider Rivers "elite") can overcome their team's deficiencies and find a way to win.
That's what Rivers did today.
His D gave up 27 to the lowly and totally disrespected Browns.
His top WR's were not available.
His O line was decimated.
Yet he still found a way to win.
This is something McCown has never been known for.
Yes, today's game was on the D.
But no matter how good McCown looks in a loss, it doesn't get me excited.
He is who we thought he was.
Even when I wanted Manziel over Hoyer, there was still a part of me pulling for Hoyer to be a late bloomer and take us somewhere. I just don't get that feeling with McCown. At all.
Weirder yet, I find myself pulling for Weeden tonight was a Cowboy.
Man, this Browns fandom. It's an illness. An un-explainable illness.
