Pro-Bowlers and Their Past San Diego Chargers Connections Equal Success
Too many San Diegans in the Pro Bowl and majority were on Team Rice alone. Think about the roster of quarterbacks with Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and Alex Smith.
History has the San Diego Chargers drafting Rivers in 2004 a reaction to Brees’ performance in the 2003 season. Of course then, Brees and Rivers were at the center of quarterback controversy in San Diego under the AJ Smith and Marty Schottenheimer Cold War.
Brees had to undergo reconstructive surgery on his shoulder in the 2005 offseason, casting doubt on his future career. From there we remember Brees signing with the New Orleans Saints then winning a Super Bowl with his bionic shoulder while Rivers is without a ring and still being perceived as a whiny kid, throwing tantrums.
Moving on to Smith who went to high school at Helix High School, a prep powerhouse in the San Diego region. Though this is his first Pro-Bowl, it is still hard to believe he’s been in the league for eight years.
Then to round out Team Rice, Mike Tolbert found his start in San Diego as an undrafted free agent and was a big help to the running game until 2012 where he followed the money and went back to Carolina.
What does this all mean, really?
San Diego is a nice place to live and one can grow a career out in San Diego, but win a championship? — Can’t do it here
It’s going to take a special type of person to take San Diego to the next level. Drew Brees single-handedly lifted the city of New Orleans out of their post-Katrina depression. One can imagine Rivers could be the one to end San Diego’s championship drought.
