NFL.com is ranking the backup quarterback position for all the teams in the league and the San Diego Chargers have one of the worst in the league. Remember when we had Billy Volek?
The only player that has some experience ranked lower than our Clipboard is Green Bay Packers Graham Harrell.
If Philip Rivers ever has to leave a game for a potty break or anything, we pretty much are screwed. Clipboard Charlie is good at holding the clipboard and he probably would be a good shampoo model.
Whitehurst played some in the preseason last year and really didn’t impress. He is fighting for a job on the roster. We could save some room on the salary cap if we let him go and one of the rookie quarterbacks could give a little push for a roster spot.
We have no insurance for Philip Rivers right now. He is the single most important player for our success. If he goes down, we will be looking at drafting Jadeveon Clowney or Teddy Bridgewater next year. Luckily, Philip is one of the most durable players in the game.
