FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick got to spend some time with San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers at the Pro Bowl, and with the Chargers coming to town this Sunday, the Patriots' coach had some high praise for his next opponent, comparing him to other elite quarterbacks in the league.
Off the field, hes very impressive, said Belichick when asked about Rivers. Hesreally into football, a very smart guy. He understands and is very interestedin talking about football, schemes, players, and all those kinds of things. Hesreally into it.Like Peyton Manning was, like Matt Cassel, like TomBrady, and all those guys. Theyre very similar like that. He has a good arm.He can really throw the ball down the field. Hes a big guy who really sees thefield well.
