The talk about the Chargers trading for Marcus Mariota is a hot topic of later. Here are some reasons why the team should go after him. 

All the talk about Philip Rivers getting traded for Marcus Mariota to the Tennessee Titans has infuriated some of the fans. The team is looking at the option of adding him onto the roster. Many of the faithful would hate to see Philip Rivers traded away to the Tennessee Titans, but if the team truly believes that Mariota is something special, then they need to make that move. There is reason why the whole Chargers brass is out in Oregon today to evaluate Mariota in a private workout.

Philip Rivers has done a lot for the city of San Diego in his career. He has been one of the top quarterbacks in the game, but he still has not brought a championship to the city. He has missed out on the playoffs in 4 of the last 5 seasons and has not won the AFC West since 2009. He also led the league with 18 interceptions last season.

Is it time for the team to look for a fresh face to run the offense and to run the team? Is it time for the Chargers to give the keys to the franchise to Marcus Mariota?

There are a number of reasons why the Chargers should stick with their star quarterback. There are also a number of reasons why the Chargers should go with the new face. We will look at that possibility in this article.
