Denver Broncos tired of hearing about Philip Rivers, Chargers success


The Denver Broncos finished up their 2013 regular season with the best record in the NFL, so they’re a bit perplexed as to why the vast majority of talk going into this weekends playoff matchup between themselves and the San Diego Chargers is filled with talk about quarterback Philip Rivers.

Rivers of course has had a vast amount of success against the Broncos, especially in Denver where he holds a 6-2 career record – including a victory there in Week 15.

Regardless, the Broncos – especially Malik Jackson, are tired of hearing about it:

Told about San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers’ 6-2 record in Denver, the Broncos defensive tackle said Monday: “That (expletive) don’t matter now. We’ll see what he is after this game.”

Angry Malik is angry.

Of course, despite Rivers’ success in rarefied air, the Chargers are still a 9.5 point underdog, so maybe that will make Jackson feel better.

Rivers and the Chargers will attempt to better their record in Denver on Sunday afternoon at 4:40 ET.

    Poor, poor little Donkeys! It isn’t enough that every sports show on TV covers them 24/7. Now they want everybody to completely ignore their opponent, too? Wait, that already happened when the Bolts played them on TNF. Hope the Chargers have enough fight in them to make Peyton’s record for 1 and done in the playoffs to 9. If not, no problem. The Bolts season is already a success by lieu of just making the playoffs. But a win would still be sweet.
