    Head coach Danny Ski announced after the 10-26 loss to the Steelers that Rookie QB Jessie Koch would be taking over at QB for the rest of the season. In a contract year and a hot start Rivers was looking to bounce back from an awful 2014 campaign when he lead the league with Interceptions with 33 total. Things started off alright for Rivers and rumor has it that the front office and Rivers were close to agreeing on a 2 year contract extension for over 20 million a year but things took a turn for the worse the second and third quarter of the season and Rivers found himself pulled from a close game on Sunday where he threw 3 interceptions (20 INT's on the season) and kept his team from competing... Koch came in and threw the teams only TD on the day.

    When asked if the Chargers would consider signing the 34 year old veteran after the year coach Ski remained non-committal and said he was just focusing on getting rookie Jessie Koch ready for Minnesota. Coach ski said "at 5-7 we are not out of it by any means but things are clearly slipping away and we need to see what we have in Koch." We liked his arm-strength coming out of Wisconsin and his ability to throw down field."

    Koch will look to get on track against the Vikings next week and he will have a plethora of weapons including pro bowler Keenan Allen, Danny Woodhead, Ladarius Green, and of course the standout rookie Audre Slaughter. In fact, Koch threw his first TD of the season this past week against the Steelers to rookie Audre Slaughter and he will look to pick up where he left off next week against the Vikings where he will appear for his first start of his career.

    Rivers' confidence was at an all-time low "0" after Sundays loss and we are looking forward to spending the majority of our practice time pouring into the rookie QB who has some clear areas to improve.

    Koch will have a huge test in his first start!

    THREAD HIJACK!

    It also appears to have been the end of an era in Foxborough, as Jimmy Garoppolo had his first career start in week 15 vs. publik drunk 's Jets.

    And did he have himself a game.

    Garoppolo finished 25-28 for 392 yards passing with 4 TDs and 2 INTs in a 35-25 win over the Jets. One of those INTs was a hail mary at the end of the half.

    Don't worry Pats fans, Tom Brady still did see the field. He was holding on kicks for Stephen Gostkowski.

    I've got a 6th rounder this offseason for the greatest 6th rounder of all time.

    When we let Rivers go to Free Agency we didn't plan on him ending up in KC....

    Rivers was my backup plan if I didn't get Tannehill. Ended up getting both.

    This just in: Second year Jessie Koch has been in a QB competition during camp and in the preseason and has lost the starting job to rookie Adam Riley who has impressed the coaching staff from the get go. Riley was the Chargers 4th round pick and wasn't even projected to get drafted this year by the "experts"... It appears these said "experts" got it wrong with this kid... To be fair, he was the QB at Lehigh which is not a program that produces NFL star QB's and is more prestigious for its academics than athletics. But you know this guy is smart after graduating with a BS in business management and was on the deans list all 4 years! Coach Ski said that he is the smartest young player he has ever met and his smarts extend to the football field and has done a great job picking up the playbook in the short time. Also, he's just better than last years second round pick (Jessie Koch) all around and although the Chargers were surprised he wasn't recognized by more scouts and analysts, they are not complaining because they believe they have just stole the QB of the future at an excellent value. After a preseason standout performance against the Colts where he threw for 3 TD's he has all of his passing attributes already over 80 which is much better than Koch who only has his deep accuracy up to 67... He also has considerably more speed than the 64 speed rated Koch which gives the Chargers a shot at picking up some yards when the play breaks down (not a running QB by any means.. Pure pocket passer). Koch showed that he can step in to provide solid backup production if needed last season when he took over for Rivers for the last four games but for now its Riley's job and the coaching staff is confident he will lead the offense in the right direction.

    The Chargers get the win in this one but Adam Riley was injured with a broken collar bone and will be out for 8 weeks... He gave his team a 17-7 lead and threw a few nice deep balls and a td but would leave the game in the second quarter... Jessie Koch got the save in this one connecting on over 90% of his passes and throwing 2 TD's. The Chargers will look to Koch next week against the Jets.

    Never figured this out, I've put players on it with no option to ever bring them back.

    Once they are at 0 it should give you the option I think it's A. Then you can't being anyone else back.

    So just put him on IR like anyone else. Nothing special on the front end? The. When he's healthy I can activate?

    Adam Riley finally came off of his 8 week collar bone injury and got the start over second year QB Koch. He played relatively well minus the 3 interceptions... He added 4TD's and 466 yards passing against the Raiders... He will look to get a W next week against the Titans and cannot wait for the rematch with the raiders the following week!
