Rivers, Gates, Jackson, Phillips, Jammer, Osgood, McNeill & Cooper receive team honors

Posted by Joel Price on December 30, 2009 – 12:40 PM

Philip Rivers, in the midst of a potential NFL MVP season, was voted the Chargers’ Most Valuable Player by teammates. Rivers, who has thrown for a career-high 4,155 yards and 27 touchdowns, wins his second-consecutive team MVP award a day after being chosen to his second-career Pro Bowl squad.

Offensive Player of the Year (Rodney Culver Memorial Award) honors will be split between tight end Antonio Gates and wide receiver Vincent Jackson. Both players are enjoying career seasons, with Gates gaining a career-high 1,145 yards and Jackson setting career highs in yards (1,167), catches (68) and touchdowns (nine). This is Gates’ third-career Rodney Culver Award (2004 & ’05) and Jackson’s first.

Defensive Player of the Year (David Griggs Memorial Award) honors will be split between linebacker Shaun Phillips and cornerback Quentin Jammer. Phillips leads the NFL with seven forced fumbles and paces the team with seven sacks, while Jammer has broken up a team-leading 10 passes and is tied for the team lead with three interceptions. This the first David Griggs Award for both players.

Special Teams Player of the Year honors go to wide receiver and special teams ace Kassim Osgood, a 2009 Pro Bowl choice, who ranks second on the team with 12 stops. Routinely harassed by double and triple-teams, Osgood is headed to his third-career Pro Bowl. This is his fourth special teams player of the year award (2005-07).

Lineman of the Year honors go to left tackle Marcus McNeill, who is charged with protecting the blind-side of Rivers. McNeill hasn’t missed a start all season and is a key member of the line which has allowed only 10 sacks during the team’s current 10-game winning streak. Overlooked for the Pro Bowl, McNeill captures his second-career lineman of the year award (2006).

Linebacker Stephen Cooper, the team’s leading tackler with 119 stops on the season, receives the Emil Karas Award as Most Inspirational Player. At one of the most physically demanding positions on the field, Cooper has played more snaps this season (928) than any other defender and ranks second on the team with seven passes broken up. He’s also forced and recovered two fumbles.

Five Chargers voted to AFC Pro Bowl squad

Posted by Joel Price on December 29, 2009 – 6:07 PM

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, tight end Antonio Gates, kicker Nate Kaeding, guard Kris Dielman and special teamer Kassim Osgood have been voted to play in the 2010 Pro Bowl all-star game in Miami. Kaeding and Osgood were the top vote-getters in the AFC at their respective positions. The players, coaches and fans each had an equal hand in the voting.

Rivers, who currently ranks among the league’s top quarterbacks, owns the highest passer rating in the AFC (104.5) and earned the second Pro Bowl nod of his career. “It’s an honor,” Rivers said. “Any time you’re a part of the Pro Bowl team and in company with the other great quarterbacks it is a big honor. However, being named to the Pro Bowl is as much about the guys around me as anything. It takes a lot of guys for individuals to get recognized. The quarterback position more than any other, needs every other guy playing at a high level to make it. If I can’t get the ball off because of pressure or if nobody’s making great catches, I’m not going to have the success I’ve had this season and throughout my career. “We had more (players) that are as deserving that didn’t get that call today and I’m disappointed for those guys. We’ve got a lot of guys on both sides of the ball and on special teams that I believe are Pro Bowl worthy.”

Rivers credited Head Coach Norv Turner as well.
“He’s been huge in my progress. I knew very early on when we first met that we thought a lot alike and have similar approaches to the game. That helped immediately because we were able to understand how each other thinks. Running this system and his ability to coach the position is exceptional. It’s been a great fit.” Gates was selected to his sixth-consecutive Pro Bowl squad. He leads the Chargers with 78 receptions and set a new career high with 1,145 receiving yards, tops among NFL tight ends. Kaeding is 29 of 32 on field goal attempts and ranks second in the NFL with 135 points this season, one point shy of his career high. He is in the midst of an NFL-record streak of 68 consecutive made field goals of 40-yards or less (including playoffs). Dielman tallied enough votes to make the all-star roster for the third-consecutive season. He is an integral part of an offensive line that has allowed just 10 sacks in the last 301 pass plays and just five in the last six games. He has started all 15 games this season. “It’s a great individual honor, but ultimately I hope I’m not playing in it because I want to be getting ready to play in the Super Bowl,” Dielman said.
“It’s always an honor,” Dielman said. “I’m lucky to have a lot of great teammates around me that help me. Playing next to Marcus (McNeill) and Scott (Mruczkowski) and Nick (Hardwick), having Philip (Rivers), I know I benefit a lot from those guys. (Offensive line coach) Hal Hunter is another guy that’s really helped me get to this point in my career.

“There are other guys that should be going. With Vincent (Jackson) and Marcus (McNeill), the proof is in the pudding. They’ve both damn good players. Vincent gets lost in the shuffle because there are so many great receivers in the AFC, but if you’re going to tell me he’s not one of the top three I think you’re sorely mistaken. Marcus gets lost in the shuffle. There’s no one else I’d rather play next to. I think he’s the best left tackle in the league. He makes my job easier and I love playing with him.”

Special teams ace Osgood, who routinely draws double and triple teams in coverage, is headed to his third-career Pro Bowl. He has racked up 12 special teams tackles. Running back Darren Sproles was named a first alternate, and four Chargers were named third alternates to the Pro Bowl. Left tackle Marcus McNeill, who made the Pro Bowl after each of his first two seasons (’06 and ’07), is a third alternate, as is wide receiver Vincent Jackson, cornerback Antonio Cromartie and punter Mike Scifres. ###

Postgame notes from today’s Chargers-Bengals game at Qualcomm Stadium

Posted by Joel Price on December 20, 2009 – 8:13 PM

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS vs. CINCINNATI BENGALS
Qualcomm Stadium (70,000) – San Diego, California
Sunday, Dec. 20, 2009

With today’s win and Denver’s loss to Oakland, the Chargers clinched their fourth straight AFC West title and their fifth in the last six seasons. The Chargers can lock up the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs with either a win or a New England loss in either of the last two weeks.
 
The Chargers won their ninth straight game today and their 17th straight game in the month of December.
 
Philip Rivers led his third fourth-quarter game-winning drive of the season and the 12th of his career today. He finished the game with 308 yards for his fifth 300-yard game of the season and his third in the last four weeks. Rivers now has 15 career 300-yard games, including playoffs, and that is just one behind John Hadl (16) for the second-most in team history.
 
Rivers extended his career-best streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass today to 11.
 
Vincent Jackson finished today’s game with 108 receiving yards, his sixth 100-yard game of 2009, the most by a Charger in a single season since Anthony Miller posted six in 1993. The last player with more than six was John Jefferson, who tallied eight 100-yarders in 1980. Jackson had 120 yards in the Chargers’ 20-17 win at Dallas last weekend. Three times this season, he’s had back-to-back 100-yard games.
 
Jackson came into today’s game with 989 yards on the season and finished with 1,097. It’s his second-straight 1,000-yard season, making him the first Charger since Tony Martin (1995-96) to post consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Jackson had a career-high 1,098 in 2008.
 
Jackson joins Antonio Gates (1,071) with over 1,000 yards, giving the Chargers their first pair of 1,000-yard receivers since 1985 when Wes Chandler and Lionel James both went over the mark.
 
Jackson tied his season and career-high today with two touchdown catches. They were his eighth and ninth of the year, also a new career high. With nine TD catches, Jackson has the most by a Chargers wide receiver in a season since Keenan McCardell’s nine in 2005.
 
Nate Kaeding kicked today’s game-winning field goal, hitting a 52-yarder with three seconds left in the fourth quarter. With that kick, Kaeding hit his 147th career field goal and moved past Rolf Benirschke (146) and into second-place on the team’s all-time field goals list.
 
It was also Kaeding’s 17th consecutive made field goal, which is a new career-high. It is also the team’s third-longest streak of consecutive made FGs.
 
Quentin Jammer had his third interception of the season today, moving into a tie for the team lead with Antonio Cromartie. It’s Jammer’s most interceptions in a season since 2006 (four).
 
The Chargers reported three injuries from today’s game: center Scott Mruczkowski (ankle), cornerback Quentin Jammer (knee) and defensive end Jacques Cesaire (elbow).
