Telesco: ‘Philip’s our quarterback’


Tom Telesco is stressing the fact that Philip Rivers is our quarterback and he plans for it to be that way for a long, long time.

Tom Telesco is standing in front of the media and taking a barrage of questions about Philip Rivers. He was asked about the possibility of Tennessee asking for Philip Rivers and how he would respond to them. Here is what he had:

Philip is our quarterback and the plan is for him to be here a long, long, long time.

Can that finally put it all to rest? Can that finally give the fans some confidence that Philip Rivers is the quarterback of this team?

I don’t know if the confidence will be there until after the NFL Draft. I do like that Telesco was finally able to answer the question without skipping around it this time.

Telesco has gone to the school of Mike McCoy of saying a lot of words that don’t translate to anything. He has done well. Like Marshawn Lynch once said, “I’m bout that action boss.” I have to see it to believe it!

This team will be better off next season with Philip Rivers as the quarterback, but the fact that the team has brought in Marcus Mariota in for a workout suggests that there is a possibility of making a move for him. We want Philip to be the quarterback for a long time, but we need to see him sign a contract. We need that long-term deal done.
