The San Diego Chargers made a long term commitment to 33 year old Phillip Rivers with a long term contract extension with loads of guaranteed money. Rivers had talked about leaving San Diego should the club move to Los Angeles. In 2014 he completed 66% of his throws with 31 touchdowns and 18 picks. The 12 year pro has yet to lead the club to a Super Bowl appearance. You have to respect Rivers ability to play as he has not missed a regular season game in nine seasons. He spent his first two years in San Diego backing up Drew Brees. Rivers has thrown for 4000 yards or greater in six of his past seven seasons. To Rivers credit he has not had much of a running game behind him for years. The San Diego organization hopes this changes in 2015 as the club drafted former Wisconsin Badger Melvin Gordon in the draft. For Gordon to get respect from his coaches he will have to pass block which Badgers running backs weren’t asked of. Branden Oliver is coming off a poor rookie season that saw him rush for just 3.6 yards a carry on his 160 rushing attempts in 2014. Danny Woodhead is on the roster and will most likely work in third down passing plays. The Chargers took a blow as 35 year old Antonio Gates will miss the first four games of the year with a performance enhancing substance suspension. San Diego has been a bit unlucky with injuries to their offensive line the past several seasons. After selecting Gordon in the first round of the draft the next four picks by the Chargers in the draft came on the defensive side of the football. They gave up 4 ½ yards per carry on the ground to opponents in 2014 which will have to be corrected.
