Q: Do you think any of these Chargers are future Hall of Famers? – Carlos Chevreuil

A: A totally subjective question, but there is no doubt that Philip Rivers is a bona fide Hall of Famer. Forget the fact that he owns virtually every quarterback record in franchise history; number 17 ranks in the top 10 in most meaningful categories in NFL history! Rivers has been playing at such a high level going on 15 years that sometimes it’s easy to overlook how prolific he’s been. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but in my book, Joey Bosa has a shot at Canton if he plays like he has his first two years for the next decade. We’re talking about the player to amass the most sacks in NFL history over a player’s first 20 games. He still has a long way to go toward proving worthy of even being in the discussion, but that’s how impressive Bosa’s been since he entered the league.

Q:  So I’m interested in the usual heated matchup with Keenan vs. Verrett. How has that been going? And if so, could you keep an eye on the two extreme competitors and give us an idea of who’s been winning those battles so far? Thanks Mr. Henne! – Terrence Simmons

A:  Iron sharpens iron, so Allen vs. Verrett is always a main event come training camp.  We didn’t get to see much of it this offseason as Verrett was only cleared for 11-on-11s until the three-day minicamp.  But trust me, we’ll have plenty of coverage of these heated battles, including video footage for those who can’t attend.

Q: Why is Hardwick no longer calling games?? He was fun to listen to with his knowledge from playing with the Chargers. – Todd Sullinger

A: It was a tough decision for Nick, but he wrote a beautifully penned article for the site in which he went in-depth on his reasons. Basically, he’s choosing to spend more time with his two young sons, Hudson and Teddy. I encourage you to read what he had to say.

Q: What’s Philip’s favorite away game? – Chase Messinger

A: Rivers has often cited Mile High in Denver as one of his favorite places to play, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a pretty intense atmosphere with enough of an old-look feel for a modern stadium. It’s also one of my personal favorites, along with Green Bay and Baltimore.
