    he's on his way...

    Making his fifth career NFL start, Rivers notched his first 300-yard passing game with 334 yards and a pair of touchdowns without an interception in a 48-19 win at San Francisco. The 6-5, 228-pound quarterback completed 29 of 39 pass attempts for a glittering 116.8 passer rating and posted a streak of 13 consecutive first half completions, equaling the third-longest stretch in team history. During his completion streak, Rivers racked up 195 yards through the air and completed his two TD strikes – a 57-yard catch-and-run by Antonio Gates and a 33-yard pass to the end zone to Vincent Jackson. The Chargers recorded four scoring drives (three TDs, one FG) in which Rivers did not throw a single incompletion. The first-year starter was nine of 10 on third down passing for 142 yards and a touchdown and also had two short runs for first downs on third-and-one plays. Rivers owns the NFL’s second-highest passer rating (100.6), second-highest completion percentage (68.8), second-highest third-down passer rating (114.8) and third-highest fourth-quarter passer rating (114.7).

    In his third year from North Carolina State, this is Rivers’ first Player of the Week Award.

    On a related note - per JoelBolt...

    "Quarterback Billy Volek has been elevated to number two position behind starter Philip Rivers. Casey (Pierce) has the scoop and the full article will be on the site soon."

    As I told most of you freaking heathens, Philip Rivers is the "Chosen One" and like the dagger in the heart of the vampire - I extinguish all of your non-believers and now I have you by the balls. :icon_mrgreen:
