Philip Rivers Booking Agency Profile

Philip Rivers is currently the starting quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers. Rivers was drafted by the New York Giants with the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. However, Eli Manning stated that he would not sign with the Chargers if drafted by them and insisted that he be traded to another team after the draft, and the Giants draft-day trade sent Rivers, and a first, third, and fifth round picks, to the Chargers and Eli Manning to the Giants.

On September 11, 2006, Rivers made his first start against the Oakland Raiders. Rivers managed the game well despite only passing 11 times, but completed 8 passes as well as one TD in a 27-0 rout of the Raiders. After his first game, Rivers led the NFL in QB rating with 133.9.

The fifth week of the season, the reigning Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers came to town and Bill Cowher's defensive game plan revolved around stopping Ladainian Tomlinson. This game marked a turning point for Rivers, who aided by head coach Marty Schottenheimer's opening of the playbook, proceeded to take the game on his shoulders and lead the team in a come-from-behind victory throwing 24-of-37 for 242 yards and two TDs, winning 23-13.[6] This was LT's favorite "Rivers Moment" from 2006 remarking, "It was just the simple fact that we couldn't run the ball and he had to win the game for us, and he did."

On November 12, 2006, Philip Rivers had the best game of his short career and led the San Diego Chargers to an improbable comeback against the Cincinnati Bengals. Down 28–7 at halftime, Rivers led the Chargers on six drives culminating in touchdowns. After driving in for the Chargers first touchdown after halftime, Nick Hardwick, River's center, reminisced about Rivers, mimicking his southern drawl, "He's yelling 'Y'all don't think we're out of this' to the Bengals. When he said that, I said, 'Shoot, I guess we ain't out of this. Right on.' Rivers himself threw for 337 yards and three touchdown passes, while LaDainian Tomlinson scored three of their four rushing touchdowns. San Diego outscored Cincinnati 42–13 in the second half winning the game 49–41, matching the biggest comeback in 23 years for the Chargers.

For the 2007 season a new coach, Norv Turner, took over the Chargers, and after a 1–3 start, the Chargers found their groove and finished 11–5, winning the AFC West for the second straight year. The Chargers also won their first two playoff games since the 1994 season, beating the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts before falling to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game 21–12.

Following the playoff loss, Philip Rivers revealed that he required surgery to repair his Anterior cruciate ligament, an injury he'd played through during the Chargers' playoff run - this operation would require 6 months recovery. However, Rivers promised to be back in time for training camp before the start of the 2008 season.
