Philip Rivers might be available…

Thinking this through a bit. Two likely scenarios come to mind. 
 

Scenario 1

Jets Darnold and Panthers Darnold are identical. If this is the case we go into December with 4 or 5 wins and a couple fried huddle servers.   Lucky for Igo, he can pick up replacements during Black Friday sale.   We get Rivers, put on our rally caps and hope to sneak into playoffs. But we don’t.  The team seems ruderless but manages to get another win or two.  Rivers goes back to AL to for winter/spring HS football workouts.  Then we get to spend the whole off-season whining about not tanking for the next great QB we won’t be drafting.  
 

Scenario 2

Panthers Darnold plays admirably but gets injured late in the season.  We bring Rivers in and make or just barely miss the playoffs.  Huddle server gets fried in December, Igo misses Black Friday sale and pays full price.  Rivers goes back to AL to for winter/spring HS football workouts.  Then we get to spend the whole off-season whining about not tanking for the next great QB we won’t be drafting. 

 

Or Scenario 3. Sammy plays well, we make the Playoffs, and the Huddle servers still go down.

4,000+ yards, 24 TDs, 11 ints. Better than what we had last year.

 

If he is willing to be a backup/mentor. Then yeah. Test those tires

This. I was assuming that the OP meant as a back up that had more potential that PJ.

OP did say this at the end. " He may not be close to his prime, but Rivers would still be a serviceable emergency option for a team that sustains a quarterback injury late in the year."

 

So, I'm not really sure he meant for us specifically. Or even if Rivers would accept a backup role. But I will admit it sounds intriguing though.

This guys arm is in wayyyy worse shape than Cam’s. 

Some here do genuinely seem unable to accept that sometimes a QB loses arm strength with age and/or injury. There are still people claiming Cam will win another MVP. At this point I imagine it’s more in jest, but I think some really do believe he can return to the Cam of old. The arm is just gone. Pitt will learn this lesson with Big Ben the hard way this year. They just don’t last forever. It’s hard to move on but that’s just life.

Sorry, but Phillip Rivers is basically the same guy as Matthew Stafford. Media loves him, everyone says he's great and an asset to any team. Reality says he's an 8-8 QB who somehow survived numerous coaching changes.

or Scenario 4.  We find ourselves in need of a QB late in an attempt to sneak into the postseason.  CRA stands up in the crowd and starts a slow PJ chant.  PJ, PJ, PJ.  Soon it takes over the entire stadium! PJ! PJ! PJ!.   Rhule gives him the shot.  He continues his undefeated streak.  We go on to win the Super Bowl.  PJ Walker gets a statue.  In his speech for the Hall of Honor, he credits me for starting that chant and making it all happen.   PJ and I become best friends.  Everyone here is sooooo jealous.  And scene.
