Philip Rivers Likely Keeping the Gloves On


Philip Rivers says that there is a good chance that he will be wearing the gloves this season. At least until he starts throwing 4 interceptions a game again.

Why not ride it out? He was making big things happen with the gloves on last season. Might as well ride it out more and see if it is the gloves that have the magic.

Kurt Warner used to wear the gloves and made it work well.

He wore the gloves 3 times last season and won all 3 games. Ride the wave.

All the stats don’t take into account that Philip Rivers has always been a slow starter and finishes the year strong. What other reason did Norv have awesome records later in the year? OH… maybe because he finally opened up the playbook when the team was trying to scratch their way back into the playoffs.

Gloves on? Think it makes him any better?

    Still kinda weird to me to see him wear gloves. But hey, if he likes it, i like it.

    He never seemed to do well with gloves on. His problems were all a result of the line had nothing to do with how he was throwing with or without gloves. This isn’t a good move. I just hope it isn’t too late by the time he figures it out.

      he actually did very well with gloves on.

      Never did well with the gloves? What are you talking about?!! He won all thr games he had wearing them. Don’t know if there’s a correlation between gloves and no gloves as to his passing numbers or qb rating, im sure there is but I don’t feel like researching the topic but undefeated is a pretty good stat to go off

    im not going to lie… lookinh at his hand on the ball in the pic… reminds me of frog hands

  • tubbs45

    I don’t care if he wears a friggin diaper as long as he doesn’t throw picks! Whatever it takes to win!

  • Cgoodness13

    I imagine its to prevent the ball from slipping away, forgot what game that was but they ruled it a fumble and it cost us the game (not really his fault, he was getting sandwiched by the opposing teams pass rush)

  • Rob Base

    Rivers with gloves = WINS
    Keep em!

  • Alter Ego

    Gloves, no gloves – we don’t need his finger prints to know who threw the ball. Just throw it to another Charger.

  • blu3ny3llow

    I say wear the gloves but cut the tips for every finger off…give him some swag…lol

  • Gunnar Martin

    This is the definition of offseason news.

    Keep them on the gloves reduced Rivers fumbleitus and Doug Flutie was the first QB I ever saw wearing gloves.

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    Got to see the Chargers get some love on NFL Network last night & #17 wasn’t wearing the gloves during the OTAs video clip of him….not going to put too much stock into it. Rivers just needs to have a better year than his last 2…
