Today our sweet prince Phil Rivers announced his retirement from the NFL. While many of us saw this coming and aren’t surprised to see him make this decision, it still fucking hurts. The old guard of NFL Quarterbacks is dying right in front of our eyes and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it. Rivers leaves behind a legacy that tells us to never give up, never quit and when you get dealt a shitty hand of cards to go out there and hit that fucking jackpot. Rivers is retiring with a career winning percentage of 55% and 63,440 passing yards. While he never did quite make it the the big dance we can still admire everything he did on the field not only statistically but also with his words.
Join me in remembering Phillip Rivers with this video.
I hope retirement brings you everything you want in life Phil. Tell the kids I said hello.
