After a brutal 2012 season that saw him snap a string of four straight 4,000-yard seasons while setting career highs in turnovers and sacks, critics wondered aloud (a-really-loud, actually) whether or not Philip Rivers could still be a top-tier NFL quarterback.
Saturday, a lot of those critics offered a group, "We're sorry for doubting you, Philip. Here's a trophy." Rivers was named the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year by the Associated Press.
Philip led the league in completion percentage and finished in the top-5 in yards, touchdowns, first downs, QB rating, and bolo ties.
It's a tremendous honor for the Chargers signal-caller. But, let's hope he's never in a position to win it again.
