Youth Los Angeles Chargers Philip Rivers Nike Navy Blue Team Color Game Jersey

Youth Los Angeles Chargers Philip Rivers Nike Navy Blue Team Color Game Jersey

One thing you can count on with Philip Rivers is that he holds himself accountable for his play on the field.

And while the 2017 campaign was one of Rivers’ best seasons as a pro, the Los Angeles Chargers still failed to reach the playoffs for a fourth straight year. Rivers says that’s starts with him.

“I still at the end of the day think my job is to help us win football games,” Rivers said. “Obviously, we won a heck of a lot more than we did the last two years. But I fell short of leading us to the postseason, and giving ourselves a chance at a championship.

“I take it as my responsibility as quarterback that my number one role is to lead us to the postseason — enough wins to give your team a chance. I think that’s the ultimate measure. But in a lot of ways I had a good year. There’s always plays you want back through every game — make a few plays here or there, and we would have won them all.”

Rivers finished second in the league in passing with 4,515 passing yards. His 10 interceptions was his lowest in a single season since 2009.

Up front, the offensive line did a great job of protecting the 36-year-old signal caller, as Rivers was sacked a league-low 18 times.

Rivers has become the fourth player in NFL history to post nine or more 4,000-yard seasons (Peyton Manning has 14, Drew Brees has 12 and Tom Brady has nine).

Rivers’ 50,348 career passing yards is ninth in league history.

But against the AFC West division winners, the Kansas City Chiefs, Rivers struggled. He threw six of his 10 interceptions against Kansas City, as the Chargers were swept by the Chiefs for a fourth straight year.

Rivers got through the season healthy and made the Pro Bowl for a seventh time. And the Chargers found some balance and continuity on offense during the second half of the season.

All of their impact players other than Antonio Gates are under contract for next season. And now that they have fully made the transition to Los Angeles, the players don’t have to worry about the relocation issue and can focus on improving during the offseason with head coach Anthony Lynn moving into his second season.

“I know it’s been a transition, and I understand it hasn’t been ideal for our home games,” Rivers said. “But we appreciate [the fans that showed up]. Training camp was exciting for me — the support we had there from the fans. I’ve still yet to run into anyone that says why are you here, and we hate that you’re here. Most people we run into are excited and they’re pulling for us.

“I mean, shoot, the Rams have had a heck of a year, but it’s not about us versus the Rams. We don’t think like that in that locker room, but we’re a team that I would imagine that’s pretty dang fun to watch. And I think that next year, we’re going to be a team that is still playing into January and we’ve at least set the groundwork to kind of, you know, keep moving things forward to make the transition.”

Bulls’ Wade, Butler, Mirotic, Zipser all out vs. Wolves wholesale jerseys

The Chicago Bulls were severely short-handed for Sunday’s wholesale jerseys game against Minnesota. If Jimmy Butler’s heel doesn’t improve quickly, the Eastern Conference could face a similar issue in the All-Star game next weekend.

The Bulls scratched Butler, Dwyane Wade, Nikola Mirotic and Paul Zipser for the game against the Timberwolves and old coach Tom Thibodeau, the final one of a six-game road trip.

Wade sat out with a swollen right wrist, Butler has a bruised wholesale custom jerseys right heel, Mirotic developed back spasms and Zipser stayed at the team hotel because of an illness. That left the Bulls with 10 healthy players against the Timberwolves.

Butler missed three games with a bruised right heel before returning to play 30 minutes in a loss to Phoenix on Friday. Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Butler reported “pretty significant soreness” and would be re-evaluated before the team plays Toronto on Tuesday. He said it was too soon to tell about Butler’s availability for the All-Star game in New Orleans wholesale usa jerseys on Feb. 18.

Wade said he will get X-rays on his wrist. He injured it while bracing a fall in Friday night’s game against Phoenix.

“I’m just focusing on now,” Wade said when asked if he thinks he will be shut down through the All-Star break. “Obviously I’ve played through a lot of things, so I can play through it if it’s manageable. But really not today when I can’t bend it.”

Zipser likely would have missed the game on Sunday anyway with a sore left ankle if he had not become sick, and Mirotic came out of the Suns game with back spasms that intensified once the team landed in Minnesota.

All of the injuries are the latest problems for a Bulls team that has been drowning in dysfunction and distraction this season.

“It seems like the Oklahoma City game was 35 days ago,” athletic jerseys wholesale Hoiberg said of the first game of the trip, way back on Feb. 1. “We just have to continue to fight, continue to battle.”
