LaDainian Tomlinson says Philip Rivers looks distracted
“I’ve always said this; ‘It’s hard to be ‘the guy,’” Tomlinson said. “When they say this is your team, it’s hard to be the guy, because you get all the questions about what’s wrong and what’s right.”
Tomlinson and Rivers were teammates on the Chargers from 2004 to 2009.
When told of the comments, Rivers had this to say to the San Diego Union-Tribune:
“I don’t feel that burden, nor has it had anything to do with the struggles. People say, ‘It’s your team.’ I never bought into that."
Rivers has thrown more interceptions, 11, than touchdown passes, seven, this season, but the Chargers are still tied for first place in the AFC West with a 4-3 record.
