    On his worst statistical day as a starting quarterback in the NFL, Philip Rivers had one thing right.

    “Shoot,” Rivers said to himself, “if I'm not throwing it good, let him throw it.”

    “Him,” of course, is LaDainian Tomlinson, who once again bailed out the Chargers offense yesterday with his remarkable versatility.

    Held in check for most of the afternoon, Tomlinson broke free in the fourth quarter with the most important pass of the day and the most important run, all in a span of about three minutes. The two plays led to 14 points as the Chargers survived an off day by Rivers to beat Oakland 21-14 at Qualcomm Stadium.

    “It's the sign of a great team when you can have a guy that touches the ball every play not play very good, and still win,” Rivers said, speaking of himself. “Obviously LT has a lot to do with that.”

    LT is a marvel...it just seems like there is nothing he can't do...he comes through again and again and again. Thanks for the articles neighbor...I like to read them. I also hope Rivers does not have too many more "off days."

    Rivers has total class...he is a team player...and very humble.

    Hey maybe you should have filled in for Merriman. :icon_eek:
