    Is Phillip Rivers a Hall of Famer? Will he make the Hall of Fame and should he make the Hall of Fame?

    Never. Everybody puts up numbers nowadays. Rivers par for the course nothing hall of fame about him or his career.

    Edit; Rivers also known to choke in big moments or in general.

    He's good for sure, but a HOF'er? I don't know.

    You always hear how great he is but, during his reign, has he ever raised the Charges up to the level of a great team? Not really. Are the Chargers ever "feared"? Not really.

    He's won 3 playoff games his entire career and no SB appearance's obviously.
    In this decade, since 2010, the Chargers are 74-75 and one playoff win.

    Sadly no. He has had his shots to cement his legacy. He did not capitalize on any of them. That is not even why he will not get in.

    Look at how the current NFL is structured today. Nevermind the current state of the NFL, players like Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, Jimmy G (Laremy Tunsil REALLY helped here everyone) and Carson Wentz all will likely not just surpass his numbers but exceed him in the areas Philip could not. In short?! Quarterbacks are literally THRIVING rather than just merely surviving like they were 20 to 30 years ago.

    I could add other factors such as the immense level of support Phil has had over the years to lead his team to a Super Bowl but could not. However and again, these additional factors are nugatory. Philip has NEVER showed he is capable of delivering the big win that matters most on multiple occasions.

    At this point, even if he somehow manages to string together a deep playoff run, he still has the likes of Russel Wilson and fellow classmates in both Eli and Ben to contend with. That is not even accounting for Brees , Rodgers or even Brady. There is simply way too much competition he will have to face when he retires.

    A great player he is. A Hall of Famer he is not.
