Despite being a Pats fan, I would not hate seeing Phillip Rivers lifting up that Lombardi trophy.
Chargers are 15-5 their last 20 games played. They have been good for several years, they have just been arguably the most injury plagued team the past few seasons. Chargers fans are used to guys like Keenan Allen tearing his ACL in the first half of the first game of the season (two years ago) and All-Pro players missing the entirety of the season. Chargers are 6-2 and haven't had their All-Pro starting DE Joey Bosa yet... this team is for real...

Melvin Gordon turned out much better than the other Wisconsin great running back Monte Ball
Rivers is better than Ben and Eli by every single metric but he's the only one not to win a SB.

Chiefs fan here. I'm glad the chargers are challenging us. They are the only team in the NFL that I believe can beat us in Arrowhead. Honest opinion. The Chargers are making me nervous. But I don't think they can stop Mahomes but that's no disrespect. I don't think anybody will stop this offense. But the chargers definitely can compete with us and they can probably beat us.

As a Pats fan, the Chargers are the only team I'm even worried about
Very humble & cool guy!, great interview !
Stephen A. actually proved why the Bolts are UNDERRATED in his attempt to talk down upon the teams they have beaten. He mentions these "bad teams" yet the Chargers have been a "pick-em" or the "underdog" in 6 of their 8 games this season. Hell, against the Browns just a couple weeks back it was a "pick-em" game according to Vegas and oddsmakers. The Chargers epitomize underappreciated. And btw -- the chargers have BEEN good, they have just been injured. This team is 15-5 their last 20 games...
MGlll set the all-time NCAA record for rushing yards in a game... in 3 quarters

Real talk, I'd like to see a Panthers Chargers Superbowl….I wonder what that would look like...from a Panthers fan......IJS but it would be cool being that for years we were chargers South including Ron Riveria…..and Rivers is a NC guy....I am not going to say it would happen but I'd like to see it

They keep saying cold weather as if the chargers can’t be in position to have home field
Stephen A hating big time!! Chargers used to always lose these close games, now we’re winning. Still missing a DPOY candidate in Bosa. Lets go Bolts!!
Chargers are 15-5 since last season? Chargers do not make the schedule lol

Why is he yelling at Melvin Gordon? He's acting like he's all jazzed up on cocaine, talking about the Chargers from the 1980s.
Suspicious Conundrum
Suspicious Conundrum:
He got a lot of flack in his rookie season. Some called him a bust even but since then he has turned out really nicely. To me he is top 5 right now.
lmao now stephen a says phillip rivers is a hall of famer without a ring, but literally they had this debate a few months back and he said phillip wasnt
From the look on Stephens face in the thumbnail I know this is gonna be something lol

Melvin gordon is a san diego charger he the best rb in AFC WEST they will beat the steelers.... Stephen A is a hater rs hes a hype artist
Chargers get hot in Late November going into mid December. They are early this season, and doing it low key. Rivers is hungry. Lions fan, here, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Chargers in the Superbowl. They have a shot...

this segment shows why Stephen A. needs his own show
Max and Molly kept interrupting him at nauseam
Clearly shows that SAS doesn’t do too much research about football, Melvin is from Kenosha, Wisconsin. Played college at Wisconsin, all he knows is snow

To be fair Stephen A is right..that schedule is fkn cupcake but Mel Gordon the man tho

I drafted Melvin Gordon in my Fantasy Draft League. Been declining trade offers since week 1!! 🙌🏾🏈 🏆
I remember saying the Eagles aren’t as good as they looked last year because they played some easy teams and their only loss at the time was against the Chiefs. I ate my words later on... Don’t sleep on the Chargers just because they have beaten lower tier teams.

Stevone Capone
Stevone Capone:
Chiefssssss we own the West period . And we don't have our full defense starters in the lineup .. when we get healthy it's gonna get scary for the rest of the NFL
Let's go Chargers! I'm going to The Coliseum in Oakland Sunday! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Idk why everyone is assuming they gonna be traveling to PIT and NE...there's still 8 games in the season left. The Chargers are tied with the Pats and 1 game behind the Chiefs. The Chiefs still have to play the Rams and the Chargers. The Steelers are gonna play Pats and the Chargers. When it's all said and done they could have homefield. I wouldn't bet on it, but I wouldn't be surprised either

I'm a big Chargers fan . If they get a wild card they're done . They're not gonna travel to New England , Kansas City or Pittsburgh and win . The Chargers desperately need Kansas City and Mahomes to fall to Earth . The Chargers will more than likely have to run the table to get a Super Bowl ring . Bolt Up !!!
Alex Vazquez
Alex Vazquez:
Philip rivers has never had a good enough defense or offense until now this is the best/youngest most hungry squad he’s ever had
Dani Barreto
Dani Barreto:
Come on people. You can't tell me you guys wouldn't love seeing Philip Rivers lift up that trophy with his family around him. He's an outstanding player, person and he's beloved within the league by so many. It be awesome. I mean come on, if Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson got one why not my boy Philip!!?? They already did the boy Marino dirty, I hope they don't do my dude Rivers dirty too. Mahommes and Goff will have plenty of chances, they young.
