Rivers making Bucs pay for Pro Bowl snub

It’s pretty clear that Philip Rivers is playing with a certain amount of vengeance in his heart today. He has to be.

No Pro Bowl snub was more blatant than the one the Chargers’ quarterback received. You can’t lead the league in passer rating and touchdown throws and fail to make the league’s all-star game, yet somehow Rivers didn’t draw enough votes.

He’ll probably still get to Honolulu in place of the Jets’ Brett Favre, who probably won’t make the trip for one reason or another. But it doesn’t change the fact that Rivers was dealt an injustice. He might not have an argument to be on the AFC squad in place of Peyton Manning or Jay Cutler, but he certainly was more deserving than Favre.

And Rivers seems to be making the Buccaneers pay for that. He also is doing his part to keep alive the Chargers’ faint hopes of winning the AFC West. But those efforts won’t matter if the Broncos beat the Bills later today to wrap up the division title.
