Chargers Head Coach Mike McCoy Says Philip Rivers Can Complete 70% of His Passes
Been a rough couple of years for Philip Rivers. He has been a turnover machine and the Chargers have faltered. They got rid of Norv Turner and brought in Mike McCoy to hopefully changed the franchise fortunes. He has high expectations for Rivers according to Pro Football Talk.
In an interview for Monday Morning Quarterback on SI.com, McCoy told Peter King that he believes Philip Rivers is capable of becoming a more accurate quarterback than he’s been over the course of his career. When it comes to completion percentage, Rivers’ best single-season mark is 66 percent and he’s completed 63.6 percent of his throws over the course of his entire career but McCoy believes that Rivers can connect on 70 percent of his throws in the 2013 season.
Rivers is 31 years old, so it isn’t like his career is over after a couple of bad seasons, but you have to wonder if his fall is permanent or can he bounce back.
Big Ben and Eli are shining their rings, time maybe running out for Rivers.
