his opportunity a month ago, the Chargers resembled an accumulation of additional items from “The Walking Dead.” They lost six back to back recreations at a certain point, a stretch of uncouthness that appeared to end their Super Bowl trusts.
A lot of this fell on the shoulders of Philip Rivers, who dunked into a secretive funk that still hasn’t been clarified. Fortunately for San Diego, Rivers woke up and has come back to performing at a MVP level amid a three-diversion winning streak. The Chargers currently are even at 7-7, one amusement behind the Broncos in the AFC West with two to play.
Waterways was a visitor this week on XEPRS-AM, the place he examined San Diego’s sudden turnaround and his inclination that mentor Norv Turner should keep his activity … regardless of whether the Chargers make the playoffs or not.
“We hope to go win these next two and see what happens, yet whatever happens, that is the way I feel,” Rivers stated, alluding to Turner keeping his activity. “That six-amusement losing streak, every one of the turnovers, every one of the wounds, every one of the things that were going on – those aren’t pardons – however had we been getting beat 38-10 and 28-3 and can’t get a first down, possibly it’s somewhat more reasonable. We had an opportunity to win each and every amusement.
“I know it’s tied in with winning and losing, yet I figure Norv and his staff completed a phenomenal activity of keeping us in each amusement,” Rivers proceeded. “We’ve won 48 recreations the most recent five years. That is a ton of football games, and I believe Norv’s completed a phenomenal activity.”
Streams clearly has a considerable measure of regard for Turner, and the quarterback knows his middle of the season stretch of poor play has put his mentor in damage’s direction. Endeavoring to think about how San Diego’s front office will respond is troublesome – recall, the Chargers terminated Turner’s antecedent, Marty Schottenheimer, falling off a 14-2 season.
