Philip Rivers has to feel like that rapper that all of sudden fell off.
Rivers, who was once considered somewhere among the league’s elite signal callers, is now fighting to prove that he still even belongs in the NFL.
During a conversation with the L.A. Times, Rivers talked about a lot of the things that frustrated him. The one that drove him crazy the most, was “people saying something was wrong with him, and that he needed to be fixed.”
“The thing that’s gotten to me this off-season is, ‘Who’s going to fix Philip?'” Rivers said. “That phrase, I almost laugh it off. That drives me nuts, really.
“There’s no question I’m responsible for some of the plays and some of the games we haven’t won. I’m not going to shy away from that. But we can go sit in there and watch a lot of tape from last year, and I’ll ask you, ‘What do you want to fix?’ It’s just about eliminating some of the bad plays.”
This season will definitely show us if Rivers needs to be fixed, or if his bad play centered around a failing system, and the illness of his son.
