Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has had a few temper tantrums during games over the years, so it wasn’t a huge surprise when he had another one on Sunday.
It happened in the third quarter of the team’s game against the Eagles, with the Chargers facing a fourth-and-7 situation on Philadelphia’s 45-yard line. The Chargers kept the offense on the field and it appeared that they were going to go for it, but the coaching staff was unable to relay the play call to Rivers in time.
Rivers was forced to call a timeout, and he was not happy about it. He ripped off his wristband as he made his way to the sideline, where he then began yelling at the team’s coaching staff.
That sequence of events perfectly sums up the Chargers’ 2017 season so far. It’s been a rough start, to say the least.
