    <blockquote>Quarterbacks

    Starter: Philip Rivers
    Backup(s): A.J. Feeley, Charlie Whitehurst

    Starting QB: Philip Rivers, the fourth pick in the 2004 draft (selected by the Giants and traded to the Chargers), has spent two seasons carrying a clipboard, but now gets his shot to start after the offseason departure of Drew Brees to the Saints. He is one of the most accomplished QBs in NCAA history, and will now see how far his accuracy and quick release will take him at the next level. He has plenty of talent around him, including Pro Bowlers LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates as outlet receivers. Rivers will not be asked to win many games with his arm; the plan is to emphasize the running game and avoid costly mistakes. In what little playing time Rivers has received as a pro, however, he has shown the ability to recognize the blitz, make quick reads, and deliver the ball on time. He has a stronger arm than Brees, and will seek to make teams pay for loading up on the line of scrimmage to stop the run. Two concerns with Rivers, apart from his lack of NFL experience, are his lack of mobility and his sidearm throwing motion. His low release point could cause balls to be batted down at the line of scrimmage.</blockquote>
