And if you don’t believe me, just ask him: Philip Rivers somehow channeled Tony Romo on his team’s final drive against the Chiefs Monday. With the game tied at 20 and under a minute left, Rivers fumbled the snap from center. There were 48 seconds left and the Chargers were at the 15. They had [...]

Philip Rivers has had what many would consider a brilliant NFL career. Since taking the reigns as starter 6 years ago, he’s become one of the NFL’s best QBs. But he’s failed to lead the talented Chargers to the Super Bowl, and on Monday Night threw his league leading 11th interception of the season. Adding insult to injury he then mishandled Nick Hardwick’s...
The television cameras zoomed in on Philip Rivers just after he had fumbled away the San Diego Chargers' chance to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in regulation.
It didn't take a professional lip-reader for the message to come across.
''This,'' Rivers said on the sideline, ''is the worst day ever.''
Only for the Chargers.
It was awfully good...
Philip Rivers might have had more difficult games from a statistical perspective, but Monday night’s loss had to be emotionally draining. Whatever the reason for his poor play, Rivers’ slide leaves the Chargers in a precarious situation in the deadlocked AFC West.
It was an all-time NFL blunder, the kind that will show up on "SportsCenter" countdowns and career retrospectives for years. With his team preparing to run down the clock and set up a chip-shot, game-winning field goal, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers mishandled a routine snap on a kneel-down play, fumbled the ball and handed possession to the Kansas City Chiefs...
Unlike the past few years, the San Diego Chargers started their season strong; leading the AFC West Division and racking up four wins early in the season. For a team that started last season at 0-1 before quickly sliding to 3-5 by this time last year, that’s a great record. The game against the New York Jets looked promising with the Bolts taking an early lead and ending the...
IRVING – Jerry Jones’ expectations for the 2011 Dallas Cowboys remain high even after Sunday night’s 34-7 trouncing at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The reason? Tony Romo.
“In my perspective, when we have a quarterback that’s healthy – Romo – that can play at the level that I believe he can play at, then I don’t think you ought to lower your expectations,”...
At 3-4, the Cowboys certainly don't seem like a playoff contender. But some winnable games over the next five weeks could change expectations.
So what should be the mindset for Cowboys supporters? Should they expect playoffs and a run at a Super Bowl, plan for another year that equates to a high first-round draft pick, or maybe prepare for somewhere in the middle?
