Philip Rivers made the mess that he had in front of him work. He was able to move the offense up and down the field and got the win for the team. He did an incredible job and is now nominated as the FedEx Air Player of the Week.
That is pretty incredible if you look at the circumstances that he was under for this week. 3 of his starting offensive lineman didn’t get into the game because of injury. Two of his starting receivers were not able to finish the game. His All-Pro tight end was still serving a suspension. Without some very key players on offense, Philip Rivers was able to pull out the victory and was able to play well enough to be nominated for the award.
Where would we be without Philip Rivers? Where would be without his presence on offense?
We need to allow him to make the calls up front on offense. We need to allow him to play the fast paced no huddle offense that we thought we would be playing. When Philip was running in the no huddle offense, he moved the team up and down the field and put points on the board. He did it without key players on his offense. What can he do when some of these guys get healthy?
