The San Diego Chargers took on the Green Bay Packers yesterday in NFL action and saying Philip Rivers was outstanding would be an understatement. The 12th year pro out of North Carolina State University was phenomenal all day throwing for a career high 503 passing yards on the day. On one particular touchdown pass to Ladarius Green, Rivers showed precision that was among the best to play the game. Putting that pass in a spot that only his receiver could of caught, and more importantly putting six points on the board for his team. At the end of the game when it came down to Rivers and the Chargers offense trying to crack the end zone to win the game. They came up short when Packers rookie cornerback Damarious Randall broke up the Chargers pass which was intended for Danny Woodhead. Rivers laid on the field in exhaustion after that play and a sports psychologist we interviewed (who wishes to remain anonymous) suggested that Rivers body language was most likely due to Rivers feeling like he has to carry so much of the load for this team. Which brings us at endzoneblog.com to the question of when are the Chargers going to get Philip Rivers some help? This guy has kept the Chargers competitive when the front office never took action to make the team a serious Super Bowl contender. Yet the forever overly passionate Rivers still puts this team on his back every single season and leads this team when they need him the most. In fact Rivers burning fire passion for the game of football is the reason the Chargers have been relevant the last 12 seasons. It’s time this team steps up and makes some major moves to give Rivers the shot he deserves to win a championship for the Chargers. The guy bleeds lightning bolts now it’s time the franchise shows they bleed Philip Rivers. Get this guy some help and go win a Super Bowl before it’s too late.
