The question I keep being asked these days is Rivera vs. Santiago, who’s better? My answer is quite simply this:
RIVERA IS TO THE MID-VALLEY DIVISION WHAT SANTIAGO IS TO THE INLAND DIVISION. AND, ARROYO IS TO THE MID-VALLEY DIVISION WHAT CHARTER OAK IS TO THE INLAND DIVISION.
If you’re going to tell me for one second that Santiago would be putting up better numbers than Rivera if he were playing at Arroyo and surrounded by Arroyo’s skill talent and line, then you’re just lost. And if you’re going to tell me that Rivera is not capable of putting up Santiago-like numbers were he to be playing at CO and surrounded by CO’s skill guys, then you’re lost.
Bottom line: These are the best two QBs in the area. And their teams are going to need help draw-wise to last a round or two in their respective playoff divisions.
