There is a lot of hate pointed at Philip Rivers now. With A.J. Smith and Norv Turner gone, the next man on the list seems to be Philip. When things still look the same in the past, then you go with someone else that remains from the previous regime. That person if Philip Rivers.

The people who are frustrated with Philip’s performance on Monday see that the offense stalled out in the 3rd and 4th quarters. Of course they remember the interception for a score.

Philip still is not getting help from the other guys on the roster. People need to step up and make plays. Philip made a beautiful touch pass to Antonio Gates down the sideline and it clanked off of his hands. It was a tough catch, but it should have been made.

Philip made a nice pass to Eddie Royal to bail the team out on 3rd down, and Eddie forgot to bring the ball in. Philip can’t throw the ball and catch it also.

Philip can take the blame on the interception. He saw the blitz, but he didn’t read the defense right. Brian Cushing was in zone and had Danny Woodhead covered on the play and made a great play.

The running game was terrible. We couldn’t get a first down running the ball to save our life.

Other players need to step up. When the opportunity to make a play is there, MAKE IT!

For those pointing fingers at Philip, don’t forget to point the fingers out to Eddie Royal, Ryan Mathews, Antonio Gates and the rest of the guys that failed to make a play in that second half.

4 touchdowns for Philip Rivers in that game. He did some things right too.
