Rivers: Chargers should be humble, hungry

The way Philip Rivers sees it, maybe the Chargers can fly below the radar during the locked-out NFL offseason. As much as he’s stir crazy during the lockout, he sees the lack of attention focused on his team as a good thing.

The Chargers, the team that prognosticators love to pick in the AFC West and analysts have pointed to as having the NFL’s most talented roster in recent seasons, haven’t translated the recognition into a Super Bowl appearance despite playoff appearances in four of the last five seasons. Rivers is OK if no one is talking about the Chargers.

“This offseason might be good for us,” Rivers told NFL Network. “There’s always been a lot of hype surrounding our team, whether it be people picking us to go to the Super Bowl or  talking about how talented we are. That’s all kind of gone away. We ought to be humbled and hungry and ready to get back out there.”
