Phillip Rivers is just the latest of many top flight quarterbacks that have played for the San Diego Chargers since the franchise's inception in 1960.
In today's win, or you never existed world we live in, great players have not always won the big one.
That should not diminish the way we Charger fans view their skills and contributions.
Lets face it, if all we had to go by is who won the Super Bowl, the Hall of Fame would be missing more than a few bronzed players.
Effort should be recognized as well, any of us would trade places in a heart beat to be remembered as even the worst quarterback of all time; because no matter what happened, we played in the NFL.
The Chargers have not won a Super Bowl, but it sure ain't from a lack of effort. No one wants it more than we do, but it just has not been in the cards as of yet.
Unfortunately, the Bleacher Report photo archives do not have images of Charger QB John Hadl, who teamed with Lance Alworth to form the most effective passing combo in AFL history, but I will try to cover the rest.
The Chargers have been fortunate enough to have had several longime starting quarterbacks. The list is rather short compared to other teams in the NFL.
