Chargers | Philip Rivers more comfortable in offense
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 10:56:51 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is much more comfortable in head coach Mike McCoy's and offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt's offense this year, an offense similar to what he ran in college that involved shorter passes and fewer deep backs. The team is hurrying up their offense at times and going with a no huddle, and it gives Rivers the freedom to change plays at the line of scrimmage as he sees fit. The 539 yards of total offense for San Diego in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles was their most since 1985. "Philip Rivers just seemed to know everything we were throwing at him," Eagles CB Cary Williams told reporters after the game. "He was calling things out. He caught us in bad situations. Used those matchups against us and was able to capitalize. He kind of recognized what we were doing to a degree. We weren't able to disguise the way we wanted to. He just found the matchups. Philip Rivers is a great quarterback."

Rivers appears much more comfortable after the first two games. He's always been a bright football mind, and now that he's been given the ability to change plays as he reads the defense, he's become much more effective. He's taken a liking to Eddie Royal, too. Royal should now be owned in all leagues, and Rivers should be a solid QB2 moving forward.
