Training Camp Preview: Quarterbacks - Ricky Henne (VIDEO)
Unlike many other teams, there is no quarterback controversy in San Diego. Rivers is the clear cut starter, and for good reason, as over his career he has been one of the top signal callers in the game.

One of the finest two-gap nose tackles the NFL has ever seen as Williams just wouldn’t let teams run through what became his A-gap. He rarely did much as a pass rusher but when you’re as good against the run as Williams was, then you don’t necessarily have to be. The NFL has changed so that seasons like this aren’t quite as likely to be seen, so cherish the memory while you can.
