Ron Rivera recalls time with Philip Rivers
Ron Rivera spent four seasons as an assistant coach with the San Diego Chargers,
much time to know energetic quarterback Philip Rivers.
Rivers, a North Carolina State alum who has spent his entire 13-year career with
the Chargers, plays the game with a unique style all his own.
'His competitive fire, his spirit, his will to want to win and the verbiage he
used: 'Gosh, golly, doggone,'" Rivera said, when asked to recall some memories.
When Rivers met with the San Diego media on Wednesday, he shared his impressions
of Rivera, who coordinated a top defense for the Chargers.
"Shoot, I thought he was a heck of a coach," Rivers said. "A guy that you knew
was going to get a shot. He's done a nice job as their head coach in Carolina."
The 34-year-old Rivers, meanwhile, continues to be one of the league's most
effective passers. He ranks sixth in the NFL with 3,353 passing yards and fourth
with 25 touchdowns.
"I think he's still playing at a high level," Rivera said. "You watch his
ability to read defenses and attack. He still makes great decisions and delivers
a good football. He's got a good feel for the game. He's a tremendous
competitor, as well. I know he's a little bit older than the last time I saw
him, but I still respect his ability."
