    Chargers Observations

    By Jason Cole, Yahoo! Sports

    SAN DIEGO – Don't be terribly concerned about Philip Rivers being overwhelmed as he takes the San Diego Chargers' starting quarterback job from the departed Drew Brees.

    He is about as unflappable as they get, and coach Marty Schottenheimer has confidence in Rivers' ability to lead.

    "He has taken over the huddle just like anytime he has been out there from the time he got here," Schottenheimer said. "He's a very direct young man who understands what he needs to get accomplished."

    The bigger issue is whether Rivers has enough arm strength to keep defenses from cheating to stop running back LaDainian Tomlinson. Not that Brees had a rifle, but Rivers' odd release has caused people to wonder.

    Rivers' arm is plenty strong enough.

    I guess everyone will see for sure on the MNF opener.
