Will Philip Rivers get back to his elite status or is his career on a downhill slide?
Whether you’re a Chargers fan or not, anyone familiar with NFL football knows the problems the Chargers have suffered in the past few years.
Many people, fan or no fan, always tend to blame all of the problems on the quarterback. As the quarterback, and I’m sure Rivers will tell you the same, one should always expect to get the blame when things go bad. If you think that Philip Rivers has been the problem over the past few years, then you should go watch baseball or something because you know absolutely nothing about football. For the last several years I’ve watched this team’s offensive line go to crap. Remember a few years back during a pre-season game against the Cardinals. Philip Rivers got sacked 6 times in the first quarter alone. Did that raise any red flags with the coaching staff or the GM? Am I the only one that noticed? I certainly hope Norv Turner and A.J. Smith aren’t wondering why they lost their jobs. I can’t stand articles that keep saying things like “What’s wrong with Philip Rivers?” and “Can the new coaching staff fix Rivers?…..”.
There isn’t anything wrong with Philip Rivers, people! It was the offensive line, and to be truly honest, the offensive line has been…well…just that. Offensive.
In comes the new era of Chargers football with Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy at the helm accompanied by Ken Whisenhunt running the offense. I see a super bright future with this team. With Telesco bringing in more O line help through the draft and free agency, at least he and McCoy were able to figure out that the O line was in shambles. Fix the O line and watch Rivers become the elite quarterback we all know he is. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for the season to start!!
