Philip Rivers is playing at an extremely high level and while he isn’t mentioned in the same breath with guys like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers, he and Peyton Manning will likely be competing for top dog honors in 2010. Antonio Gates has been solid and the Chargers wisely kept forcing Malcom Floyd to get involved and he’s coming around. There’s bits of talent in the Chargers receiving group, enough for a quality QB like Philip Rivers to make it all hum. It sounds like rookie RB Ryan Mathews will be back this week but Mike Tolbert has earned a few extra carries too. This will make the Chargers even more versatile and improve their offense that much more. Expect a Chargers outpouring of statistics on Sunday from everywhere in their depth chart.
