About San Diego Chargers Football Cards
The 2004 to 2009 season is recognized as the Phillip Rivers and Drew Brees era in the history of the San Diego Chargers. The past season, 2003, was the time when the Chargers were considered as one of the three teams with the worst record. However, luck is still with the Chargers since due to the tie-breaking system, the team was given the chance to have the number one pick during the 2004 NFL Draft. With this advantage on their side, the team picked Eli Manning, a quarterback of the University of Mississippi even with the fact that he has stated his desire with others.
The general manager of the New York Giants, Ernie Accorsi, selected Philip Rivers and traded him together with other draft picks to the team. Before the season finally began, the team encountered issues and disputes among others. Then, when the playoff games began, the Charges were immediately eliminated by New York Jets. Then again, even if the team’s season was ended immediately, their coach still received an award as being named the NFL Coach of the Year for that season. Then, there is also Brees being named as the NFL Comeback Player of the Year.
It may not be a total achievement for the team, but it is still one that is included in their history. The achievements they made may not be as endless as the list of San Diego Chargers football art
