Homework pays off for Rivers in Bolts' new scheme
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Philip Rivers really did have to do some homework before the opening practice of the first minicamp under new San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy.
Rivers said he was nervous calling plays Tuesday in the huddle.
McCoy really has changed things that much since taking over for Norv Turner, who was fired after the Chargers missed the playoffs for the third straight season.
Players have been in for workouts and meetings, and McCoy wants to see who's gone home and studied the playbook.
McCoy says it's completely different from what Rivers has done in the past.
