Chargers QB Philip Rivers Says His Best Days Are Still Ahead Of Him
Once considered one of the better quarterbacks in the league, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has lost his luster over the past several years.
The 31 year old Rivers seems determined to show he can be a better version of the quarterback that once led the NFL in passing yards (2010) and touchdowns (2008), and not the one who threw 25 interceptions, lost 12 fumbles and was sacked 79 times in the past two seasons.
He told Lindsay Jones of USA Today he has been reinvigorated by the new offense of head coach Mike McCoy and offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.
"I think my best football is ahead of me, I really do," Rivers said. "That's being optimistic, because we've had a lot of really good years. I am probably on the second half of my career, the back end, but I think I've got a lot of good football left.
"To me, the bad is always magnified (more) than the good, and there has been some bad. But there has been a heck of a lot of good."
