Pundit deems Rivers not a franchise QB - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
He hasn't been able to get over the hump in the postseason, and is starting to run out of time with San Diego seemingly rebuilding again. But he is one of the most prolific passers of his time and an absolute gamer who wrings every bit of talent from his body.

Evaluating the Cornerbacks with DB Coach Ron Milus - Ricky Henne
Overall, and we’ve talked about it, but just being consistent all the time as far as technique is concerned.  He has got the tools.  Speed.  Quickness.  And I think his best asset may be his competitiveness.  He is a competitor, and he wants to take on the other team’s best receiver no matter what.  That is what makes him a great football player.

Rivers signed a four-year, $83.25 million contract extension with the San Diego Chargers in August 2015. The pact included a $22.5 million signing bonus and $15 million salary for the 2015 season. The deal also includes a no-trade clause from the only franchise Rivers has ever known as a pro. He led the league in passes completed in 2015 and finished second in passing yards.

NFL season win total betting advice for all 32 teams - Dave Tuley (insider)
There's a lot of uncertainly around San Diego, not the least of which is where the franchise will be located in the not-so-distant future. The team was also a mystery last year, going 1-5 ATS in games in which it was favored and 7-4 ATS as underdogs. The Chargers were certainly more competitive than their 4-12 SU record would indicate, but we're unsure if they're going to return to .500 or be playoff contenders. With their Money Line Estimate coming in at 6.85 wins and favorites in seven of their games, the Chargers' over/under of 7 looks to be pretty much spot-on. I'll lean to the over, but not enough to make a wager.
