    Say what you want about him. He is a leader to these players, by word and action...

    Rivers prepared to rally the troops


    By Bill WilliamsonThe San Diego Union Tribune reported earlier in the week Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has organized workouts during the lockout.

    Rivers said it is his job to do it and he expected the workouts to intensify if the lockout drags into the summer.

    “Well, we are trying to get things going, work out together, at least have it available to have something for guys that are in town,” Rivers said in an interview with a San Diego radio station. “Obviously some guys use their own trainers, some guys are out of town, and I think it is too early to think, ‘Hey we need to hurry up and get things started’, but I think you have to prepare for football to be here in the fall. I think there is no excuse. You don’t get to say, ‘Bear with us. We are not really playing good right now’ so we have to go with the mindset like we want to get better. Better than we were last year, and that is our job. So I think as the months progress, should this go throughout the summer, we are going to be more and more getting together to try to keep improving.”

    Rivers said in the interview it is already strange not to be able to communicate with Chargers’ coach Norv Turner during the lockout.

    “Yeah that, not only Norv, but just in general, yeah that is crazy. I mean it is weird, it definitely is, even if you go a week or two or whatever, not having any conversations, the fact that it is completely cut off that is definitely strange. (HOST: Would you guys talk a lot during the offseason?) Yeah but mostly in-person because I would be up there, I would be up at the facilities, so it will definitely be not many ball plays discussed.”

    Wouldn't it be "funny" if the Chargers wound up being one of the more conditioned and ready to play teams at the end of the lockout because of this and actually got off to a fast start this season?

    (Of course, Charger fans would then insist on a lockout every off-season! ha ha!)

    That would be pretty pathetic and just prove that Norv is the problem since once he was removed from the equation, the team started well

    Of course there would be absolutely no way to know whether or not the team would have started just as well if not better under normal circumstances. But it would give the Norv whiners something else to throw around.

    I really was unaware that Rivers being the leader of this team was up for debate?
