Lost in the Chargers getting their first victory last Sunday was the fact that Philip Rivers played poorly. We are running out of excuses for our beloved quarterback so I raised the question yesterday, is he done?
It’s been a rollercoaster season for Rivers. His lows have been alarmingly low. But he’s made the plays that you expect a should-be Hall of Famer to make as well. So when I ask the question and when you see the video of throws below, know that I’m holding him to a gold standard. Against the Giants, his deep touchdown throw to Hunter Henry was an absolute dime. He had a play where he slid in the pocket, avoided the rush, and stood in there and threw a strike to Keenan Allen to convert a big 3rd down throw. There are still plays he makes and you’re nodding like “yeah, that’s my quarterback.” The problem is these plays are becoming fewer and farther between.
