On Sunday, Philip Rivers will make his 211th consecutive regular season QB start, passing Eli for second place all-time. His 222 total consecutive starts will tie him with Eli for third all-time, with brother Peyton in his sights at 227. Eli sits 9 yards behind Big Ben for sixth place in passing yards, but pesky Rivers only trails Eli by 1250 yards. There are 28 QBs in the Hall of Fame. Only Jurgensen, 69 - 71 - 7, and Namath, 62 - 63 - 4, were under .500 for their careers. The only HoF QB who was never named All-Pro is Warren Moon, 102 - 101 - 0. He didn't play in the NFL until age 28, retired in third place for passing yards and was named to the Pro Bowl 9 times (8 in a row in his thirties).
