After enjoying a resurgent season under the short, efficient passing attack of Ken Whisenhunt in 2013 Chargers QB saw a regression in his output across the board. Again, Rivers’ numbers are nothing to scoff at but it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the change in philosophy produced a dip in completion percentage (down three points to 66.5%) and a rise in interceptions (up seven...

It Don’t Really Happen That Way At All

Remember when we were 5-1 and playing at home against Kansas City?  Antonio Gates claimed after the season that this was the loss that hurt the most.  Brandon Flowers made sure that he played this game against his former team and it was on this hit on Charles that he knocked himself out for the Denver game that followed.  It’s been a almost a month since the Chargers crapped...

Fun With San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers

San Diego Chargers  quarterback Philip Rivers went from having an MVP type season to one that ended with his team on the outside looking in once again.

What if the Colts drafted Ryan Leaf?

It was the greatest question in draft history: take the sure thing in Tennessee’s Peyton Manning, or the unfathomable physical talent in Washington State’s Ryan Leaf? The Colts, picking first, decided not to take any chances and nabbed Manning. I don’t think they have any regrets. The Chargers, meanwhile, desperate to secure either one of the quarterbacks, traded a king...
