Cosell Talks: Philip Rivers - Greg Cosell
From a public perception standpoint, Rivers is a fascinating case study. He has started for six years and has never missed a game. He’s led the NFL in touchdown passes (2008) and passing yards (2010). He’s eclipsed 4,000 yards passing in each of the past four seasons. He’s won playoff games with some outstanding performances. No one would dispute that Rivers is an excellent quarterback, one of the six or seven best in the league, depending on personal preferences.

Floyd, Meachem and Royal provide a variety of looks - Dan McLellan
The WR trio of Malcom Floyd, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal has provided a variety of looks during OTAs. The most common lineup has seen Floyd on the outside right, Meachem on the outside left and Royal in the slot. For the exception of Floyd in the slot, all other combinations have been used.

Chargers install Wildcat offense at OTAs - Michael Gehlken
But two days after signing running back Ronnie Brown, the Chargers coincidentally installed the Wildcat offense during the first 11-on-11 session of Wednesday's organized team activities.

Rivers' toughness no secret to Turner - Michael Gehlken
"I don't need someone from the outside watching tape to tell me that," Turner said. "I've been with a lot of guys and watched a lot of guys, and I think people around the league have great respect for Philip Rivers' mental and physical toughness."

Chargers give Brown welcome gift - Bill Williamson
Brown successfully ran the Wildcat offense in Miami. The Chargers have used the Wildcat in the past at times. I would be surprised if it becomes a major part of the team’s offense. But coach Norv Turner has a varied arsenal, so the fact that the Wildcat is part of the Chargers’ playbook again is not a stunner.

Help tackle hunger in San Diego -
Norv and Nancy Turner and Melissa's Produce have teamed up to pledge $1,000 for every touchdown the San Diego Chargers score this season. That's enough for Feeding America San Diego (FASD) to access 6,000 meals every time the team put six on the board. All of the proceeds will help FASD provide food for families throughout the county.
