More Concerns Regarding Philip Rivers’ Arm

According to Mike Silver of Yahoo, there is a belief amongst some executives and coaches that there is something wrong with Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers‘ throwing arm.

“Specifically, I wonder whether something is wrong with quarterback Philip Rivers’ throwing arm, and I know some league executives and coaches who have similar suspicions,” Silver wrote.

Rivers struggled during Sunday’s loss against the Browns. He completed just 18-34 passes for 154 yards. Through the Chargers first seven games this season, Rivers is averaging career-worst 6.8 yards per attempt. On top of that, he has also turned the ball over 12 times.

Last year, there was a lot of speculation that Rivers was playing hurt, but he insisted that he was 100 percent. Rivers will need to find a way to right the ship as the Chargers have lost three games in a row and four of their last five.
