Philip Rivers Nominated For FedEx Air Player of the Week


Philip Rivers was nominated for the FedEx Air and Ground Player of the Week for his performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. Does everyone that faces against the Chiefs get nominated? They are so stinkin’ bad!

Philip Rivers went 18-for-20, throwing 220 yards and 2 touchdowns in the game. Even though he had excellent numbers, I still can’t forget that bonehead throw that he made at the end of the half. We were winning 10-nothing at the time and we could have put the game away with a touchdown and he decided to float the ball over to Dante Rosario. INTERCEPTION.

It is those decisions that have killed us. There is no need to throw that ball and Randy McMichael actually looked like he was more open than Rosario. Why was Antonio Gates on the sideline for that play? We need to eliminate those brain farts.

Still, 18-for-20 is an aweosme stat! Having receivers that can CATCH the football definitely helps out. Seyi Ajirotutu and Danario Alexander made some nice grabs on offense. Ronnie Brown has been used often in the passing game and helps with the accuracy.

It is good to see Philip nominated for awards like this again. We need him to snap out of his funk and lead this offense to excellence. That was a good step in the right direction.

    I always feel comfortable when Rivers is at the helm but I wish he throws his usual interception at the start of the game like in the middle of the field on third and long.
