Chargers QB Philip Rivers Says He's 'Sick' He Didn't Play Better
Football season in San Diego ends Sunday when the Chargers host the Raiders at 1:25 p.m. It will be the last game of Norv Turner's tenure.
Rivers is in his seventh year as starting quarterback. His head coach has mentored him for the past six.
“I'm sick I didn't play better,” Rivers, 31, said, “and not just for the coaching reason but for everybody. You play for your guys. You play for the team. You play for the town.
“It stinks that it's come to what may be. I do think there can be a heck of a lot said for the guys that are experiencing it — it can be harder to grasp from the outside — but to go out the right way. We get that chance on Sunday.”
It is too late for Rivers to plead Turner's case to stay, knowing the judge has ruled, only the announcement left to come but he can analyze the season that's been.
“The things that kept us from success this year,” Rivers said with a chuckle, “coaching is not high on the list, if anywhere to be honest. We all have our roles. I didn't live up to mine. Everybody has a hand in it. I'm not diminishing the coaching role by any means because it's huge in terms of all the success we've had.
“But we've had our chances as players out there. I've had my chances.”
