Blues the news all after this the biggest piece of news coming out of the NFL is that Philip rivers and the San Diego I did it again sometimes I do it on purpose when I'm being snarky or in a minute I'm in a mood to it but I'm actually not doing it on purpose it's just that for the most part of his career for the bulk of his career rivers was a quarterback for the San Diego Chargers and even after the team moved to Los Angeles he was still living with his family in San Diego that's not the case anymore now he's living in Florida and he had moved his team are his family yes its own personal home team he moved his family to Florida not that long after the season ended so maybe a similar situation a Tom Brady right who is not living with his family in the the the Foxboro when the New England area anymore so all kinds of it's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS sports radio the Chargers and rivers were in a position just about a year ago where they were twelve and four had competed for the A. F. C. west crown the failed to meet Lee loss to the chiefs but went on the road in the wild card round won a playoff game against the AFC north champion ravens and looked to be a really good place with some great weapons to go along with rivers not to mention he had a phenomenal year with eight time pro bowler at that point and was even in the conversation for MVP and yet it all went horribly wrong in this season with twenty interceptions to go along with his twenty three touchdowns so sixteen years has come to an end the sixteen year relationship in the in Rappaport has more just last year there were a couple times they strongly considered benching rivers just based on performance and there was actually one of our time Intel was warming up on the sidelines river state and had some success on the drive ended up staying in there this was coming it was really just a matter of everyone involved Jenna manager Tom to less going quarterback Philip rivers and everyone else who helped make these decisions wrapping her head around and making sure this was definitively the direction they wanted to go really wasn't about rivers moving his family always could move the family back in the Los Angeles area near the facility to be with the Chargers it was simply them looking for a new beginning at the quarterback position soon turned the ball over far less be more productive may be more in line with the kind of quarterback that Anthony Lynn wants and then for Philip rivers if he is going to play this year and it sounds like he wants to going somewhere where he believes he can compete for championships Mike this makes a lot of sense to just a matter of all sides making it official Ian Rapoport on the NFL network fewest number of touchdown passes for Philip rivers in twelve seasons as I mentioned he had twenty three to go along with twenty interceptions and those turnovers a big reason why the Chargers finish five eleven and were last place in the AFC west but if you think about his place in history it's funny that Gilbert Manzano or Chargers insider drop the hall of fame you bring up his place in history his numbers a lot of his numbers not all of them but a lot of them are similar to Eli manning's fix that up history in career passing yards and touchdown passes thank he's just shy of four hundred career touchdown passes the Chargers did make the playoffs six different times in his fourteen years as their starter they went to the AFC championship game once but also on his resume is the fact that he has more passing touchdowns then any other quarterback in NFL history who's never played in a super ball so what next what teams might be searching for new quarter back and be looking Philip rivers direction with the Buccaneers are a possibility I kinda like the fit with the Indianapolis Colts potentially if they decide they want to bridge to maybe a another quarterback they might draft and and want to get ready to be their franchise guy and it's also fascinating to think about the Panthers maybe the Panthers decide to move on from cam Newton because of all the injuries but they are not ready they don't have a quarterback in house that they believe is ready to leave the team so they bring in a bridge QB if rivers is going to continue to play it's not going to be for much longer another year maybe two years he wants to go out on his terms and that's understandable but where are those teams that fit his scenario in fit his needs the after hours with AB Lawrence on CBS sports radio now we're still waiting on the Dallas Cowboys what appears to be a franchise tag that they will put on dak Prescott they can to continue to negotiate a contract right now still said to be far enough apart they are close to signing a new deal well Michael Irvin long time cowboy course stirred up the pot in New England and in Dallas when he made an appearance on our Boston affiliate W. E. II and talked about the
