Philip Rivers

San Diego Chargers QB

Philip Rivers is a walking contradiction.

He’s one of the most outspoken Christians in the NFL. He’s one of the biggest trash-talkers in the NFL.

Philip Rivers stalks the Chargers’ sideline, yelling at teammates and opponents alike. The only difference, he says, is he doesn’t cuss when he yells and shows his anger. Philip Rivers is all about righteous fury.

In the final minutes of the game, the Chargers convert the game-winning two point conversion and come back to beat the Seahawks 18-17 on a pre-season Monday Night, August 25, 2008 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA.

He’s also a family man, with a really big family. Philip Rivers and his wife have a brood of children…8 at the last count. The former NC State player is a classic southern man transplanted in Southern California.

After 10 years as the Chargers’ starting quarterback, he is a mainstay in the NFL and in the fantasy football world. Frankly, he seems ancient. Philip Rivers is still only 33, a full five or six years younger than other QBs still in their prime.

On the page below, I’ll discuss several phases of Philip Rivers’ career: the brilliant early years, a brief lull when he was dealing with injuries, and a fantasy renaissance over the past couple of years. I remember trading Philip Rivers 3 years ago in a dynasty league, thinking he was finished. Obviously, I was wrong.

This is the player who pushed Drew Brees out of San Diego. Philip Rivers is a major talent. Here’s his story.

Quoting C.S. Lewis: Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.
