Is it time for Chris Watt? Can the San Diego Chargers Offense survive without Ryan Mathews?

Kyle Posey provides some of his musing on the San Diego Chargers offense. Is it time for Chris Watt to replace Johnnie Troutman? Can the offense still produce without Ryan Mathews? What Philip Rivers did Sunday versus the Seahawks was incredible. Yes, his numbers were very good. From a football standpoint, his ability to maneuver in the pocket and avoid the rush while simultaneously keeping his eyes downfield was fantastic. He put on a clinic in that regard. Considering he’s "only" been hit 5 times in 2 weeks tells you all you need to know about Rivers’ pocket presence. It’s still not...

Chargers QB Philip Rivers masterfully counters Seahawks’ nickel-or-not-nickel defense to control game, win

That’s Russell Wilson after the Seahawks’ 30-21 loss here in San Diego today. But, to be fair, the never really had a fair chance to win this one. This one was on the defense. Sure, as I wrote in this morning’s News Tribune, the defensive-line rotation benefits the Seahawks. And the pass rush did get to Philip Rivers in the second half today, after reserves Jordan Hill and rookie Cassius Marsh began entering in the first quarter during hockey-like lane changes on the defensive front. “I think we did a great job … Read more »

Halftime in toasty San Diego: Chargers lead Seahawks 20-14

Halftime in toasty San Diego: Chargers lead Seahawks 20-14

Given the Seahawks had the ball for less than nine of the game’s first 30 minutes, that they have just eight of the game’s 23 first downs so far, they are probably OK with being down just 20-14 at halftime here with a temperature on the field of about 100 degrees at Qualcomm Stadium. The lead is only six despite Philip Rivers’ 15-for-19 passing in the opening half and San Diego’s 15 first downs, two field goals and two touchdowns on its four drives because of Russell Wilson’s deft, 43-second drive to a touchdown that ended the half.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers says he won’t avoid Seahawks CB Richard Sherman like Aaron Rodgers did

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have caught no shortage of flack for never throwing in the direction of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman last week. You can bet Chargers QB Philip Rivers won’t extend Sherman the same courtesy when Seattle travels to San Diego this weekend. In fact, you can literally […]

Week 1 Grades: San Diego Chargers at Arizona Cardinals

It wouldn't be an NFL season without the Chargers blowing a double-digit lead on Monday Night Football. However, while the loss was frustrating (and in the case of the offense, troubling) there were some silver linings to pull out of a very sloppy overall effort. Quarterbacks: C+ Nothing in Philip Rivers' stat line indicates anything other than an average performance. He completed only 58% of his 36 attempts, and averaged only 6.6 YPA. Ironically, Rivers' one INT was almost certainly not his fault (to be discussed below), and one which was overturned by a dubious defensive holding penalty...

Chargers Preview: Back for More, Better than Before

This time last year, we were wondering about Philip Rivers’s long-term future with the Chargers. Team president Dean Spanos had hired a new GM, Tom Telesco, who’d brought in a new head coach, Mike McCoy. The former Broncos offensive coordinator had a very distinct system that, in several critical ways, was antithetical to systems Rivers […]
