If you ask many people around the NFL to give you a prediction for this weekend’s San Diego-Cincinnati AFC Wild Card game, most folks would lean towards the Bengals.
An offseason of high expectations and optimism was quickly put in check Monday night in San Diego.
Michael Gehlken, beat writer for the San Diego Union Tribune, joined Patrick Creighton and Travis Johnson to talk about the San Diego Chargers. He talked about how Philip Rivers has a knack for being where he needs to be as quarterback. Gehlken discussed the lack of use of Manti Teo and that he will likely not play in the opener. He discussed other guys to watch for in the opener against the Texans.
This week Chargers head coach Mike McCoy and quarterback Philip Rivers were made available. Here’s what they had to say.
The San Diego Chargers are coming off of one of their worst-played seasons in a long time, and they have hopes that 2013 is going to be different. Sadly, it probably won’t start out any better than last year because they just don’t have the talent to keep up with the Houston Texans.
