Chargers | Scaling back Philip Rivers
Tue, 16 Jul 2013 06:27:18 -0700

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said the team plans to simplify things for QB Philip Rivers. McCoy said Rivers gets in trouble when he tries to do too much, but it's on the entire offense to become more consistent. "We got to get him going back to the basics," McCoy said. "Take what the defense gives you. Don't be afraid to check it down. You don't have to make that big play every play. We are going to do some different things in the passing game with him to raise the completion percentage, get the ball out of his hand a little bit quicker."

Rivers has always been aggressive in the pocket, but he had better, healthy weapons to help him out when he forced it into small windows. Injuries depleted the talent around him in recent years, and Antonio Gates was a shell of himself last season. If the Bolts can run the ball effectively, Rivers will be in better position to return to fantasy stardom.
