    “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

    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

  • Dr. PwntV2 Jan 13, 2014
    All Star

    “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.

    “I don’t think you can explain it in words what he means to us. He’s everything. He’s our leader, our quarterback, our motivator and a game changer. Philip does it all, so there are no words to really explain what he’s meant to us to get where we are right now. He means a lot to me personally. He gives me a lot of confidence and motivation. You’re talking about having somebody back there who is going to make the play. Who is going to change the game. Who can make the throw. He has even shown he can do it with his legs if he has to. So he means a lot to me.” – Ladarius Green

    No, they can't. But while they frantically scour the web in search of anything negative said about Phil by his teammates, I'll go ahead and start unloading the quotes that I found...

    "There is no one else I’d ever rather take the field with. Philip became the starter just one year before I got here, so we’ve experienced everything together. The ups and downs, the highs and lows, we’ve been through it together. And it’s amazing to see the transformation with us as a team and then him. Just his consistency, his leadership, his personality and experiences, he’s not going to let anything get to him. And that has rubbed off on us as his teammates.” – Eric Weddle

    Newsflash - his teammates don't want to "bury his arrogant behind in the turf" - that's reserved for his opponents and UNC fans (see above). Outside of his teammates, why should Rivers care what anyone else in the league thinks of him? Can't speak for you, but most of us graduated from middle school a loonnggg time ago.

    it has to suck for Philip to know that (ONCE AGAIN) he OUTperformed (in EVERY statsitical measure) his opposing QB only to wind up losing a playoff game.

    oh well... you can't "hurt" too much for one of the league's HIGHEST PAID performers (and RIGHTFULLY so, given his obvious place amongst the game's best) and his imminent entrance into Canton (HOF).

    You ask "How can a State fan dislike Philip Rivers?" Well, yesterday's game was a prime example of why. Actually, every game is, but I digress. If that punk isn't running his mouth at opposing fans, players, and/or the refs, he's running it at his own teammates and throwing footballs at them. If I was his teammate, I would have buried his arrogant behind in the turf long ago. It's no wonder he is one of the more despised players across the league, and this State fan is happy to see him fail once again.

    If you are talking about Russell Wilson - he wasn't wanted/needed at State he was drafted out of Wisconsin - those are facts. Not sure why State fans can't admit that. If you want to spin it - then say he graduated from State - I think that is how your other sisters on here are dealing with it

    Maybe you and gio can dial into sports talk radio and listen to the recap of a State QB who was still in the playoffs this weekend....and while you're at it invite all those other pansey qb's who've never had a sniff of a playoff game...should be quite a gathering.

    Wilson and the Seahawks advanced to the NFC Championship with a big win over the Saints yesterday. Rivers had a good day but the Charger defense was unable to keep Peyton off the field as they ran the clock out in the final minutes. Overall it was a solid season for Phil. Russ takes on the 49ers next week in Seattle.

    Wilson - 9/18 for 108 yds, 0 TDs, 0 INTs, and a QB Rating of 67.6
    Rivers - 18/27 for 230 yds, 2 TDs, 0 INTs, and a QB Rating of 115.8

    Tudor brings up an interesting prospect: 2 NC State QB's in a superbowl. While it's not likely to happen at all, it is more likely to happen than a kerliner QB starting in the NFL.

    Great game by PRiv as he sends Gio and the Bengals back home for the remainder of the playoffs. Big playoff win for the Chargers.

    Rivers - 12/16 for 128 yds, 1 TD, 0 INTs, and a QB Rating of 118.8

    Chargers defense with a big INT and they take it down inside the 10 but the they couldn't punch it in and settle for a FG to go up 20-10.

    Rivers was a perfect 6/6 for 68 yds and a TD on that last drive.

  • Dr. PwntV2 Jan 5, 2014

    Rivers leads a huge drive and caps it off with a perfect throw on a fade route to put the Chargers up 14-10 over the Bengals.

  • Dr. PwntV2 Jan 5, 2014
    All Star

    Chargers down 10-7 at the half. San Diego losing the field position battle and they're paying for it on the scoreboard. The average start for the Chargers is on it's own 15 yd line while the Bengals average start is on it's 32 yd line.

    Starting so deep in their territory and missing a key piece of their OL limited the playbook for the Chargers. Rivers only attempted 6 passes, completing 5 of them, in the entire half.

  • Dr. PwntV2 Jan 5, 2014
    All Star

    Rivers just led his the Chargers down the field to go up 7 against the Bengals in the AFC wild card matchup. However, they suffered a big loss in losing their starting center to some kind of neck injury. Could play a big role in blitz protection.
