One can only imagine what veteran quarterback Philip Rivers’ numbers and career would look like if he was on a perennially good team.
The Los Angeles Chargers haven’t had a 10-win season since 2009, and Rivers has only been a part of double-digit wins three times in his 13-year career.
And yet he’s made the Pro Bowl six of those seasons.
Yes, Rivers tossed an NFL-leading 21 interceptions last year, which is why he won’t make it any higher in this NFL power ranking for QBs. But the talent around him — both at the skill positions and along the offensive line — wasn’t great either.
L.A. addressed that this offseason by landing former Clemson wideout Mike Williams, who at one time, was considered the best receiver coming out in the NFL Draft.
He, and a healthy Keenan Allen, should be able to help Rivers out quite a bit this year.
