Rivers won't turn down Pro Bowl honor - Kevin Acee
"It’s always an honor," he said. "It’s always humbling anytime you're selected. I hadn’t had the year I wanted to have individually, and certainly it’s a disappointing year for our team. But I think anytime your fellow competitors and coaches think enough about you to vote you in, you certainly appreciate it."

Chargers' Hardwick might retire - Kevin Acee
However, the Chargers center for the past eight years is not just facing free agency for the first time but contemplating walking away from the NFL at age 30, a young man who can look forward to being a relatively healthy old man.

Bolts' changes could trickle down - Scott Bair
In all likelihood, Turner and Smith aren't the only ones who are in jeopardy of being fired. There are key assistants in the personnel department and on the coaching staff who are strongly linked to men at the top and may not be retained.

Three Chargers earn Pro Bowl honors - Christopher Smith
Eric Weddle, Antonio Gates and Philip Rivers will represent San Diego in the 2012 Pro Bowl. Three of their teammates are alternates for the roster of AFC all-stars.

AFC West Pro Bowl analysis - Bill Williamson
San Diego safety Eric Weddle is tied for the league lead with seven interceptions. He is earning his $40 million deal he signed this year.

Final Pro Bowl thoughts - Bill Williamson
Yes, Rivers had a down season for him, but he also did accomplish some nice things. He has thrown for 4,314 yards, which is the second most in the conference behind Brady. Rivers did throw 19 interceptions, but he threw just two interceptions in the final five games.
