San Diego Chargers quarterbacks coach Frank Reich is happy with his new position with the Chargers. Reich feels like it is a great situation to be working with QB Phillip Rivers. (I was intrigued) to come to a place where theres a quarterback like Philip Rivers, he continued. Philips reputation is that hes a competitor. I think thats what everybody respects most about him. When you think of Philip, you think of a guy who is a competitor and led one of the more prolific offenses for a good stretch. He at one point led the best offense in the league, and thats not easy to do because there are a lot of good players in this league. During that stretch, he was at the top of the game. He was a legitimate MVP candidate, so Im excited to work with a guy who is a good competitor and a great player. That combination - thats a good combination.
