What do you see out of Melvin Gordon and the Chargers running game?

“You can definitely see there’s been that offseason commitment to really work that (run) element into their gameplan in the early downs to put themselves (in manageable down and distance situations). They have done a real good job. They are 10th in the league on offensive third down conversion percentage and I think a lot of it has to do with their improved running game and their improved first and second down efficiency.”

What improvements have you seen in Philip Rivers over the years?
“He’s been one of those guys that I think if you chart his numbers and he’s dealt with a couple injuries, but his consistency, ability to handle pressure, hang in the pocket make a funny body throw, (and) get the ball to the right player (are impressive). Their offense over the years has changed to some degree and yet he’s extremely competitive. All the things you’re looking for, just from a quick release to his ability to bring his team back, you never feel like when you watch them play they are never out of a game.”
