Philip Rivers Discusses A New Coaching Change, Doesn’t Expect To Have Input On Next GM

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

It was another season of disappointment in San Diego, but this time a change had to be made. Changes that probably should have been made years prior. Norv Turner seemed to have nine lives as coach of the Chargers, but not this time. On Monday the Chargers let go of ...

Antonio Gates on Chargers Outlook in 2012: “You can tell now that we have a sense of urgency.”

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Antonio Gates has been one of the most dominant tight ends in the NFL over the last eight seasons, but injuries to his lower legs and feet have limited his time on the field. The San Diego Chargers have been notorious for underachieving in the last decade and No.85 believes ...

Philip Rivers on Potentially Reuniting with LaDainian Tomlinson: “I wouldn’t have any objection to it whatsoever.”

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Philip Rivers probably couldn't wait to move on from the disappointment of missing out on the playoffs last season. The Chargers quarterback sure is liking what he is seeing out of his new teammates, especially his new receiving core, which has a new look this season due to some key ...

LaDainian Tomlinson: “I’m 95% retired to be honest with you. As of right now I am not going back and playing football.”

Friday, May 18th, 2012

The former Maryland linebacker feels like he can be "Lights Out," once again this season after recovering from a nagging Achilles injury. As for the Saints bounty scandal that is taking the NFL ...

LaDainian Tomlinson: “Tebow and Sanchez can definitely coexist. I really don’t think it will be an issue.”

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Well, let the Tim Tebowmania begin once again. There never truly is an off day in the NFL season with major trades and suspensions being handed out recently. The news of Tebow being traded to the New York Jets comes as a shocker to some and many fans of the ...

LaDainian Tomlinson on Saints Bounty Scandal: “It’s kind of part of the game. I don’t think you can discipline them guys too much.”

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Call me crazy or cruel if you want, but I don't see the big deal with the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. Football is a game where players put on pads to hit one another. What is the big deal if coaches or players put out bets to try to ...

Antrel Rolle: “Thank god that Wes [Welker] didn’t make that catch. It wasn’t their time.”

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Antrel Rolle has been vocal all year long for the New York Giants becoming well known for his coined phrase 'at the end of the day.' It was an up-and-down year for Rolle even wanting out of New York by Week 15. It shouldn't come as a surprise that No.26 was ...
