Philip Rivers – “I can’t see how we won’t get better”


The San Diego Chargers season came to an end over the weekend, but there is a lot of hope for the future of the franchise moving forward. The team had a lot of young players contributing every day this season and the team is on the rise. Philip Rivers was back playing at an elite level this season has he a lot of hope for the future as well:

“Our team is only going to get better,” Philip Rivers said. “I can’t see how we won’t get better in the next six months and have a chance to be better next year.”

Can’t see how the team won’t get better!

Most of the key players from this season are already signed for next season. The team will get to add to their young group of playmakers this offseason. Tom Telesco did an amazing job of adding talent last offseason and the expectations will be high this time around.

The team will be looking to add some playmakers on the defensive side of the football and they will also need to find a receiver to play opposite of Keenan Allen. The team can use some depth in all areas, but there is plenty to be excited about for the 2014 season. Is it time for football yet?

        It was the only chance Denver had….the flustered angry Phil showed up and they looked horrible….the new humble Phil is unstoppable and he showed up for half a quarter at Denver…..

          i see what you are saying…

          • TheFaultyLiberalGene

            I used to be a big Rivers hater, but hearing the changes he’s had this past year with accepting criticism and growing in his game…he’s rubbing off on me…..they will be a scary team next year.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            i think he has gained a lot more fans this season. I hadn’t recognized much different from his past, but if others have, then i like the adjustment.

          • TheFaultyLiberalGene

            Yes the interview after the Bengals game I was like who is this guy….That guy will beat denver, but he reverted a bit in denver or I think they would have won they way the started spreading things out….ran out of time….they will be good next year.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            definitely ran out of time. if we could have gotten that ball one more time!!

          • boltingindiego

            the whole offense didn’t click in the 1st three quarters not just PR. no blocking, horrible play calling, some bad throws, and dropped passes can’t just put all the blame on 17

          • Stefanie Smith

            How did he revert in Denver?

          • Stefanie Smith

            I don’t see what he is saying.

    Breaking News….Frank Reich the new OC!!

    Now that Phillip knows the system, and knows who are his goto guys. He should sound confident. Six years under norv isn’t a pattern you break in one season. He had some good things from those years, but his tendencies are what killed him. After 10 years, you’d think he should stop staring down his targets. More importantly I hope we get DX an Malcom back, with some Tutu in there.

    • Gunnar Martin

      Heck, why not get Mike Willie involved while we’re at it! Remember that guy? I thought he was a beast. Good thing we’ll have him back next season.

      • arnie

        Gunnar anything is possible under HC Mike McCoy. I stated that when i saw them in training camp. Every one got a chance to compete, and the team has a genuine sense that anyone can be a starter. Case in point, by all reasoning Bradaon Taylor, if he was healthy, should have been out there over Joseph Addae. Yet no matter who they put out there Addae kept proving he belonged out there. Brian Cox was supposed to be “The Guy” at CB. Yet he was benched in favor of Richard Marshal who was on a one year deal, getting paid much less.
        I’m not Counting DX out yet, or Tutu.

            Yes you are correct, Derek Cox. What was i thinking?

          derek cox… brian was the linebacker with the Bears

  • Alter Ego

    I am absolutely proud of what the Chargers did and almost did. It was a thrilling season at the end and I believe this group of men with the coaches and Telesco will be even better next year.
    I believe…Go Bolts.
