- NEW CHARGERS HEAD COACH, MIKE MCCOY, CONFIDENT IN QB PHILIP RIVERS -
 
After being one of the top-rated passers from 2008 through 2010, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers saw his production and efficiency sharply drop. That doesn’t appear to be a concern for new head coach Mike McCoy, however. Appearing on 850 KOA in Denver, McCoy said the Chargers were lucky to have Rivers. “I think Philip’s going to do a great job with us,” McCoy said, according to SportsRadioInterviews.com. “We’re very fortunate to have him here. A very talented player and a great guy to have as the face of your franchise.” A coaching change may be just what Rivers needs, since he’s clearly capable of being an elite quarterback. Rivers was the top-rated passer in the league in 2008, just his third year as a starter. He finished third the next year and second following that, before two consecutive seasons outside the top 10. Rivers has been a turnover machine, giving the ball away 47 times in the past two seasons — slightly better than Mark Sanchez. At the very least, it sounds as if Rivers has a head coach that believes in him. McCoy has had success of late with quarterbacks, as he devised an offense in Denver that suited Tim Tebow one year and Peyton Manning another. It shouldn’t be terribly difficult to find an offense that works for Rivers. (Photo: Reuters)
