    Philip Rivers is an elite quarterback, and is returning to play at his highest potential. However, history would show that Philip Rivers has his best showing in December.

    Until December 2010, The Chargers had amassed an undefeated 18-0 record in the month of December with Rivers as the starter. Since going 18-0, the Chargers are 8-5 with Rivers as the starter in December. This is not a terrible record, of course this is only a month of football played once every year.

    Could the final Turner years have been the reason for the slump? Or could it be the slow declination of talent around Rivers most notably the offensive line?

    Either way the month of December is upon us again, is Rivers poised to lead the Chargers to another undefeated December? A streak of that magnitude could surely see the Bolts to the post-season. And with the majority of the remaining games to be played in QualComm Stadium, it would behove the Bolts to take advantage of those opportunities.

    Go Bolts!

    4 of the final 5 games at home, they have to win all their games at home to have a chance of getting into the post season. Have to take advantage of your home games, especially late in the year. 2 divisional opponents too.

    I think Phillip Rivers considers himself one of the elite QBs in the game, and we all read how p*ssed off he was with all the "fix Rivers" talk during the past spring and summer.

    Now's his chance to get back into the elite QB conversation - I think he will do his part, but the rest of the team (especially the D) will have to step up.

    Go Bolts

    He wasn't so magical last December either! Was going to add that when this thread came to life a couple of days ago, but bit my tongue hard and stayed silent!

    Not entirely his fault, both Gates' fumbles took eventual points off the board, and Allen's fumble was a drive killer as well. Also he was harassed all day long by their front 4 who didn't even have Geno Atkins. It was a terrible performance by the O-line.

    Really a full team effort today, but Rivers himself was good enough to win. JMO

    So I guess all those games played in September, October and November do not mean anything?

    Due to the lack of participation there will be no magic this December. That is all.

    This season, that would appear to be the case.
    And December.



    p.s. At least the pesky old days of having to re-jigger my January schedule--to attend playoff games--is over! :)
