The San Diego Chargers were a very good team once upon a time, but some hard times have fallen on Charger blue. However, there is hope in the form of Mike McCoy, the new coach of the Chargers. Having worked with Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow in Denver, McCoy brings his knowledge to sunny Southern California.
Quarterback Phillip Rivers is already drinking the kool aid having seen McCoy’s systems up close and personal. Rivers spoke to Darren Smith on XX 1090 in San Diego about the advantage of having a coach from a division rival come aboard.
“I’m fired up. … You go from disappointment, not only in the season we had, but disappointment of losing your coach, and then you slowly start to gear up and get excited again. Now you get a new GM and a new coach in a matter of [days]. It’s exciting. I’m looking forward to meeting him and getting things going.”
“Being a fan of just the game in general, I certainly knew a lot of his background. … It’s exciting. I know it’ll be different in a lot of ways, and it’ll be good.”
“It’s always easy to say after the fact, I know that, but of the potential candidates that were made public or that we all knew of, I can honestly say this was the guy I was hoping for.”
“I just feel great about it from a standpoint of where we are as a team and what we need. From a standpoint of energy, from a standpoint of newness, from a standpoint of — I don’t know — you got a guy that’s been in the division, that’s been on the inside in Denver. Obviously we know Denver, along with the other two divisional opponents, is who we have to beat to get to the postseason. And we were [winless] there this season.”
