    “Philip is like a coach on the field. He coaches us up as much as our own coaches do. There are ways he wants things done on the field and in the film room, and he does it all. I know they used to have a thing in basketball – a player/coach – and that is what Philip is basically. He is such a smart guy that he is helping us out with the little details of everything. He’ll make a great coach whenever he is done playing, but hopefully that’s not for a while.” – Eddie Royal

    Jan 10th...

    Lovie Smith had some praise for quarterback Mike Glennon at his introductory news conference, but stopped well short of saying Glennon will be his starting quarterback.

    Maybe Hansnut just doesn't know what it takes to be a LEADER...

    If you want to point to a leader, Philip Rivers is the leader of this team hands down. He makes this team go. As he goes the team goes. Not just how he carries himself on the field but the way he prepares during the week, he’s a true leader. He represents all the things a natural leader should have. You know he is going to give it everything he’s got, and when your quarterback does that, it rubs off on the rest of the team and that’s part of the reason why we’re in this position. It has been great for me to go through this experience with him. It’s been a while since the Chargers had been in the playoffs, and coming in last year, I see Rivers and I see Gates and guys like that want it so bad. So it is very rewarding to get the wins together, but we are not satisfied. We still have a ways to go. We need to take it one week at a time and one step at a time so we can get that Lombardi Trophy.” - Ronnie Brown

    another in the long line of exceptionally talented players surrounding PRiv...

    in another season of falling short of expectations (talent there, leadership not).

    BAHAHA this flies DIRECTLY in the face of what Hansnut said. According to some of the players, they NEED Rivers to get after them...

    “We wouldn’t be here without Philip Rivers. He is an unbelievable quarterback. He is a great guy but he will also get after you and with such a young team like we have had, we’ve needed that in order to get ready to go. On the sideline when the offense is out there I’ll take a peek , he fires me up. He gives me all the energy to go out and play for this team.” – Donald Butler”

    Hansnut is self destructing quote by quote...

    “Its’ felt great to really get to know Philip over the course of the season. I didn’t watch too much NFL football growing up, but I always knew who Philip Rivers was and watched him a bunch. He’s always been a top five quarterback to me and still is. You’ve seen what he’s done this year for us. His understanding of the game and the terminology and the way he communicates with us, it was easy to see when I got here why this guy is such a great quarterback. He’s done a great job putting us all on the same page, and being around him as a friend, that has been what’s meant the most to me. He knows when to be serious and when to joke around with us in the classroom and in the huddle. He’s a great person, and I’ve never met anyone like him.” – D.J. Fluker

    More angst from his teammates...

    “He means everything to us. He’s our leader for sure. We go where he goes. To bring the energy he brings, he is everything to us. We were drafted together, and as a friend and a longtime teammate this whole experience has been awesome. Watching him grow and watching this process grow and getting a chance at this thing, it’s cool.”- Nick Hardwick

    My rookie year has been great for me because of Philip Rivers. It’s great to have a quarterback that has the knowledge that he has. What he means to me is everything I’ve accomplished this year (because he was the one) throwing me the ball. What he means to this team, that speaks for itself.”- Keenan Allen

    “Philip means a lot to this team because he is the leader of this ball club. When you have a guy like that, you’re talking about a guy who has the qualities to help you through the tough times. He makes it a lot easier for everyone around him. That’s what sticks out the most to me about him. Not only is he the quarterback but he is our leader and he makes the game a lot easier for everyone around him. For me, that’s the true test of what he means to our team. We drafted him believing he can carry us to wins, and he’s done that. I remember one game we had once against Houston, he carried the whole team. We only won because of him. When I think of him in general, not only do I think of a quarterback and a guy who leads this team, but in my mind, he’s a friend too. When it comes to Philip, I feel lucky to have been a part of someone like him. When I look back at my career many, many years from now I will have felt lucky to have gone through this all with him.” – Antonio Gates

    Phil and his brother Austin share similar (Rick-like) traits.
