Who Is The San Diego Chargers Philip Rivers’ Favorite Receiver?


Philip Rivers is a talented star quarterback in the entire National Football League. He has faced some ups and downs, but through it all has exhibited all of the traits that make a great quarterback. The San Diego Chargers are very lucky to have him.

In Philip Rivers first full season as the starting quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, he completed a very respectable 22 touchdown passes. He completed 21 the next year and then really lit it up with 34 TD throws in 2008. Then he threw 28 touchdown passes in 2009, again a very good year. He followed that with 30 TD passes in 2010, 27 in 2011, 26 in 2012, 32 in 2013, and 31 in 2014. This kind of thrower in the pocket makes it a lot easier on the running game too. He has been blessed with having some great receivers to work with as well. Who though has been his favorite receiver during his NFL career?

Through the 2014 NFL season, no player has caught more touchdown passes from Philip Rivers than tight end Antonio Gates. His 72 touchdown passes to Gates puts him 35 ahead of the number two name on that list, Vincent Jackson. The Chargers have had good seasons since Philip Rivers became the starting quarterback, but a lot of that credit should also go to the great receivers the team has had too. With Rivers and this arsenal of talented ball catchers, the Chargers should be a force to be reckoned with for quite sometime.
