The San Diego Chargers haven’t made the playoffs since 2009. Quarterback Philip Rivers carries much of the blame turning over the ball 47 times over the last two season. There has been a lot of talk this offseason that the Chargers brought in Mike McCoy and Ken Wisenhunt to fix Rivers.
Via Sam Farmer of the LA Times, Rivers says he has heard the talk and doesn’t get it.
The thing that’s gotten to me this off-season is, ‘Who’s going to fix Philip?’” Rivers said. “That phrase, I almost laugh it off. That drives me nuts, really.
At least he admits he shoulders some of the blame for the Chargers fall from perceived grace.
“There’s no question I’m responsible for some of the plays and some of the games we haven’t won. I’m not going to shy away from that. But we can go sit in there and watch a lot of tape from last year, and I’ll ask you, ‘What do you want to fix?’ It’s just about eliminating some of the bad plays
While I agree with Rivers to some extent, any player in the NFL should strive to improve year after year. Whether you just had a career-low in stats or you’re coming off your best season, you should want to fix any mistakes year over year. That’s what makes great players. It seems like Rivers doesn’t have that in him.
