Chargers | Speeding up playcalling
The San Diego Chargers and head coach Mike McCoy are speeding up the playcalling this season, and the calls will go straight from a coach to QB Philip Rivers, without a middleman. "It gets in quicker," McCoy said. "It gives Philip more time." As a result, theoretically, the team will be less prone to delay of game penalties and rushed snaps. Offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt will be the main play caller.
Fantasy Tip: This is just another minor adjustment by the new coaching staff to make things easier on Rivers as he operates a changed offensive strategy. More short-range passes designed to get the ball out of Rivers' hand quicker should make him more effective in the long run. He could be a very nice surprise as a solid QB2 this year.
