I try to avoid putting Philip on here when I can, simply because he’s our quarterback and obviously if he doesn’t perform it puts us at a major disadvantage.  However, this is the last regular season game of the year and we need him to step up.  If everything goes our way in the morning then it’ll be “win and you’re in” for the Chargers.  Philip has been in this situation before (Broncos a few years ago comes to mind) and performed well.  Let’s hope he gets out there, does it again and keeps the momentum going into the playoffs.
