    Clutch Factor: Rivers reclaims top spot

    LaDainian Tomlinson may be the most dominant player in football the last month, but Philip Rivers isn't exactly hurting the Chargers' cause.

    The San Diego quarterback reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the Clutch Factor rankings this week. That's what happens when your team rallies from 21 and 17 points down on the road to win the last two weeks.

    Granted it helps to have your running back score four touchdowns in each game, but Rivers has done his share. His 130.6 fourth quarter QB rating and his 117.9 rating in the Red Zone are the best in the NFL by a solid margin.

    The categories our ranking system is based on:

    * Last two minutes in each half: How good is the two-minute drill?

    * Fourth quarter: the game is often in the balance

    * Red zone: Can they punch it in?

    * Ahead by seven points or less: Time to put a team away.

    * Behind by seven or less: One TD and the lead is back.

    * Third down: Often a last chance to avoid a punt.

    Here are the top 3 in all six of our categories:

    Last 2: 1. Jake Plummer (138.4), 2. Rex Grossman (125.1), 3. Drew Brees (122.0).

    4th qtr. 1. Philip Rivers (130.6), 2. David Carr (121.0), 3. Donovan McNabb (110.3).

    ** Always wanted a "comeback kid" in Bolts... GOT ONE!!! :icon_banana:

    Red Zone: 1. Rivers (117.9), 2. J.P. Losman (108.8), 3. Plummer (106.8).

    Small lead: 1. Damon Huard (126.3), 2. McNabb (119.7), 3. Matt Hasselbeck (114.6).

    Small deficit: : 1. Peyton Manning (114.4), 2. Hasselbeck (108.2), 3. Brees (98.9).

    Third down: 1. Manning (120.2), 2. Tony Romo (111.5), 3. Rivers (107.5).

    Statistics are based on 2006 season results only. Those quarterbacks eligible for the NFL passer rating title (34 this week) are ranked in each of the six categories by their passer rating. The QB with the best rating in each category is given one point, the second-best two and so on down. The point totals in the six categories are then added up and QBs are sorted according to point total – the fewer the better.


    thanx Friar...

    Thank God that Shieli didn't want to play for SD or we would have been stuck with him instead of the Comeback King

    Rivers is the King of Kings
