    Charlie Whitehurst will give Billy Volek a stiff challenge for the top reserve spot behind Philip Rivers. As a rookie, Whitehurst impressed during the offseason by showing a strong arm and poise in the pocket. Now, with a year’s worth of learning under his belt, he appears primed to fight for the No. 2 spot.

    Unseating Volek will be no easy task, as the former Tennessee Titan has 10 starts, 3,509 passing yards and 26 touchdowns under his belt. That kind of experience is hard to go ignore on a team expected to make a deep run into the playoffs. But on talent alone, Whitehurst may be the better choice.

    at least because of possible injuries a team needs to have three QBs.
    It doesn't matter when Nr. 2 and Nr. 3 are in good shape and
    make a strong competition. Most important Nr.1 shows no weakness,
    and Philip Rivers will not.

    This is going to be the fun battle to watch in the pre-season games.

    Both QB's rock.

    If there is anything I want to key on is watching these two QB's duke it out. Volek will more than likely be gone as a free agent in 2008 so may as well enjoy it while it lasts.
