Revisiting the 2004 Quarterback Draft Class

Revisiting the 2004 Quarterback Draft Class

Who has had the best career between Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, and Matt Schaub? Since we are in the thick of draft season talk, and the Chargers will (more than likely) be picking a QB for the future within the next year and a half, I thought it would be an appropriate time to revisit the 2004 draft, which will go down as one of the best QB drafts ever. With the first pick in the 2004 NFL draft, the Chargers selected Eli Manning, who had repeatedly said he would not play for the Chargers. The Chargers selected him anyways, and the look on his face showed it all... He...

Los Angeles Chargers Mock Draft Roundup Vol. 5

Another week closer to the draft. Let’s take a look at what the experts think the Chargers will address in the first round. The NFL Draft is a month away and there is still plenty of debate surrounding the number seven pick in the draft. The Los Angeles Chargers have plenty of holes to fill, but which direction will the Chargers go? The safety position could use an upgrade and so could the defensive line. There is also the thought of finding a replacement for Philip Rivers from the get-go. It looks as if the first six picks are going to dictate who the Chargers select. If there is an...

Giants, Steelers, Chargers all could draft quarterbacks again

PHOENIX -- Thirteen years ago, there were three teams vying for the top three quarterbacks in the draft. Everyone seemed to realize that Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers would wind up with the Giants, Chargers and Steelers. It was just a matter of who would go where and when.

John Ross could tempt the Los Angeles Chargers with his Home Run ability

If the Chargers decide to go with the best player available in the 2017 NFL Draft, they could find themselves another big-time WR for Philip Rivers. What if... What if Tom Telesco is so wrapped up in adding a dimension to this team that doesn’t exist that he shocks us all? What if this player slides for whatever reason and Telesco trades up to get him? Or there’s a situation where the team trades back and is in a spot where he is the best player? We’re just going through every scenario, and John Ross should be a real one. TNT When you watch someone like Curtis Samuel you’re left...

Rivers on potential new QB: “They’re going to sit for a while”

Rivers on potential new QB: “They’re going to sit for a while”

Tom Telesco and company have been vetting every quarterback they can talk to this year. Philip Rivers had a quick response. In a completely uncharacteristic, but awesome move, Philip Rivers has put his foot down and stated he’s not going anywhere, nor is he retiring soon, despite the Chargers looking at Quarterbacks in this draft. Philip Rivers has thrown for the 12th most yards all time, with 45,833 yards, and holds the position for 8th most TDs all time as well. He’s a 6 time pro bowler, and is easily one of the best ever at the position. In an interview on Xtra 1360 Fox Sports...

Would the Chiefs be Super Bowl contenders with Philip Rivers at quarterback?

Would the Chiefs be Super Bowl contenders with Philip Rivers at quarterback?

It’s the offseason so I’m busting out the hypotheticals. This isn’t meant to be a question about Alex Smith but like all posts here on Arrowhead Pride it will turn into a debate about Alex Smith. The Kansas City Chiefs have their quarterback for 2017 but what if the Chiefs had Philip Rivers instead? Would they be Super Bowl contenders? Rivers is one of the most productive quarterbacks in the league. He’s thrown for more than 4,000 yards in eight of his last nine seasons. He was a 4k guy before it was cool. He’s had at least 26 touchdowns every year since 2008. He does throw a lot...

Los Angeles Chargers Mock Draft Roundup Vol. 4

With the free agent frenzy behind us, let’s take a look at what the experts think the Chargers will do on draft night. The Los Angeles Chargers addressed one of their biggest needs in free agency by paying big bucks to tackle Russell Okung. Now, the Chargers direction in the draft is a tad clearer. With glaring needs at safety and guard, many feel the Chargers should address their secondary in round one. There are also those that feel the Chargers could snag a receiver in the top 10 and give Philip Rivers a true number one receiver. Now that things are looking clearer and free agency has...

Crazy Like a Fox: Could Rivers’ Successor Be in the Form of Johnny Manziel?

Crazy Like a Fox: Could Rivers’ Successor Be in the Form of Johnny Manziel?

Reader Zach Adams has a crazy idea about how to replace Philip Rivers when he retires. Johnny Manziel? It sounds crazy, right? just hear me out. I’m sure some of you have strong feelings about the kid either way or the other. After all, he had some of the highest potential as a quarterback we have seen recently, at least in comparisons to some of the recent quarterbacks to come out. With a few exceptions. I mean the kid can throw on the run like nobody’s business from either his back or lead foot, either rolling left or right. Instead of reaching anywhere near close to his potential we...

Could Mike Williams Be What Puts the Chargers Offense Over the Top?

Could Mike Williams Be What Puts the Chargers Offense Over the Top?

Can the Clemson receiver come in and make an instant impact? I feel like this in inevitable. General Manager Tom Telesco will realize he won’t be able to count on Keenan Allen to stay healthy and will address, in his mind, the biggest priority in the 1st round. That’s getting Philip Rivers a #1 receiver. With their draft meeting, the Chargers met with Clemson’s Mike Williams. It would be ironic to replace Allen with Williams, considering he missed all of 2015 with a neck injury The 6’3, 225-pound receiver has some mouth-watering traits. But he also has some red flags as a receiver...
