Legend of Philip Rivers' Bolo Tie is Growing

The legend of the bolo tie is building. Philip Rivers has been rocking the bolo tie on the road this season because of the new dress code that was implemented by head coach Mike McCoy on the road. The team was able to wear a t-shirt with the old regime, but now McCoy requires a coat and tie.

Philip Rivers worked around the rule by rocking the bolo tie. Everyone was introduced to the bolo tie after the Chargers beat the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football and Philip joined the NFL Network crew to talk about the win. He was sporting the bolo tie and some rattlesnake boots and the crew asked him about it.

On the road, Philip Rivers has found a way to win in some tough stadiums. They have beaten the Chiefs in Kansas City, the Broncos in Denver and the Bengals in Cincinnati. I would assume that he was wearing a bolo tie during all of these games.

According to Adam Schefter, the Chargers are undefeated when Philip Rivers is wearing a bolo.

What is the accuracy of his stats? Couldn’t tell you, but the legend is growing.

Here is a Broncos reporter trying to counter the bolo:

Is it the bolo? DUH. Get your bolo tie now! I am about to make my own bolo tie with a Chargers logo on it. It is about to go down!

The bolo has worked and he has to rock it again on Sunday in Denver.

The bolo has been good. I do have another question about Philip Rivers though from Sunday. What was that Drew Brees mark on his face? Why did he have the eye black off to the side like he was Brees? Was that ever explained? He might want to put that Brees mark on this weekend also.

Check out the Brees mark:

  • Stefanie Smith

    I think with the rain, his stuff they put under tof like makeup running or smearing. They were soaked by the end of the game.

    Holy shit
    did anyone else see the interview on NFL Total Access, between Heath Evans and Eric Decker-Head
    Heath basically bitch slapped him about the last time we beat them
    he used the term “embarrassed you” at least 3 times
    Then went all Bolo on his ass
    LMFAO for the whole thing :)
    classic shit, will try to find link

  • Marco

    Rivers didnt have any black grease on him. I am sure someone else marked him during celebration hugs. Maybe Danny Woodhead lol he was full of that grease.

      Thanks. Embarrassed? I call it embarrassed if they other team wasn’t supposed to win. The truth is the NFL Network is embarrassed for overlooking the Chargers, and their Favorite to win the Superbowl got called out on National TV. Let’s be real they were expecting Peyton to be sitting there on set after the game.

        not exactly the fluff piece that Pecker thought it would be
        the swamp donkey’s get all pouty when you don’t fawn all over them
        loved every minute of it :)
        according to Heath, we have already won the super bowl
        and the Bolo is most definitely gaining traction

    Hahaha. .. this my favorite article of yours all year! Brees mark… bwahaha! Did you see Woody’s Brees marks after the game? He looked like Marilyn Manson! And he is growing some sort of playoff beard. It looks like a prepubescent teen rocking his first facial hair… lol.

      Charger fans are getting accustomed to your kind of chest thumping. After almost 2 months of proving your type look wrong its becoming quite entertaining to read.

      • tubbs45

        I am a Chargers fan…. my chest thumping is supporting the bolo nation and RIVER ROCKING DENVER….

          Oops. I made a little edit above. I had way too much coffee that morning. I should’ve known, your “bolo knows” post was great!
