NFL Trade Rumors:
San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers spoke with USA Today Sports Thursday and sounded off of feeling “reinvigorated” with the additions of head coach Mike McCoy and offensive coordinator and a former head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
“I think my best football is ahead of me, I really do,” Rivers said. “That’s being optimistic, because we’ve had a lot of really good years. I am probably on the second half of my career, the back end, but I think I’ve got a lot of good football left.
“To me, the bad is always magnified (more) than the good, and there has been some bad. But there has been a heck of a lot of good.”
Rivers, 31, has had public issues with his former head coach, Norv Turner, about taking control of the offense. It is not out of the realm of possibility that a coaching change could make a difference for Rivers, but his turnover numbers have been very high as of late. In his last 32 games, he’s turned the ball over 47 times.
“Poor throws are things that happen,” Rivers said.
