    SAN DIEGO — Two years on the bench gave Philip Rivers a chance to watch, listen, learn and, well, test his patience for delayed gratification.

    But extended time as Drew Brees' understudy did little to curtail the moxie that is a calling card for the San Diego Chargers' new starting quarterback.

    "I'm going to be myself," Rivers said. "Maybe a little different than in the past couple of years — and this is not being negative about Drew one bit — is I play with a little bit more emotion. I'm a little more emotional and vocal. That's something I feel adds a little spunk, a little excitement to that side of the ball.

    "I've always felt like I've had the ability to make a play when there's not a play to be made. I don't feel like I have to come in and make all these magic plays. But you see it every Sunday: a busted play, a scramble and before you know it, they're catching a touchdown."
