Chargers | Schottenheimer apologizes for remarks

The Associated Press reports San Diego Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer apologized Thursday, Aug. 10, for saying Chargers starting QB Philip Rivers will be tested "when the bullets start flying." "I've often said if you stand in front of a microphone as many times as I do, you are invariably going to make a mistake and I made a mistake," he said. "But the good thing about it is I will never forget that mistake." Earlier a retired Marine colonel had criticized Schottenheimer's remarks in a letter to The San Diego Union-Tribune. "Football is not combat, it is a game," he wrote.
