The front office should have listened to Philip Rivers about Vincent Jackson
Philip Rivers is the franchise quarterback for the San Diego Chargers. When one earns this title, an organization wants to keep their star QB happy.
Rivers made it no secret that he wanted San Diego’s head coach Norv Turner to return for another season even though San Diego has not made the playoffs since the 2009 NFL season when they lost to the New York Jets.
San Diego has not won a playoff game since the 2008 season when they beat the Indianapolis Colts.
Rivers also said that he wanted the team to bring back Vincent Jackson who led San Diego in receiving yards in 2008, 2009 and 2011 while he led the team in receiving yards and touchdown receptions in 2009 and 2011.
San Diego’s front office brought back Turner, but chose to let Jackson sign a five year deal worth $55.5 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jackson is averaging 88.8 receiving yards per game which ranks seventh in the NFL. Malcom Floyd leads San Diego with an average of 63.6 receiving yards per game which ranks 32nd in the league.
Jackson has six TD receptions this season which is tied for seventh in the NFL while Antonio Gates and Dante Rosario are tied for San Diego’s lead with three which ranks 36th in the NFL.
Jackson leads the NFL with an average of 22.9 yards per reception as well.
The Lightning Bolts will play Tampa Bay on Sunday and Jackson will have an opportunity to stick it to his old team.
I think it is smart to keep one’s star QB happy, but I think Rivers would be happier and more productive this season if San Diego listened to him about Jackson.
