It still takes some getting used to; the Los Angeles Chargers. While fans are still angry in San Diego, Chargers’ quarterback Phillip Rivers is feeling his share of negative feelings about the franchise’s departure from the city of San Diego.
Mainly, Rivers is experiencing regret for never bringing the city of San Diego a Super Bowl championship.
Rivers spoke at the San Diego Hall of Champions dinner to honor teammate Nick Hardwick on Tuesday night.
“It really was special over the last decade,” Rivers said, via ESPN.com. “The only regret I have is not winning it all while we were here. It’s something we always wanted to do and get done for this community and for our team.”
“It has been very special to be a San Diego Charger. And I hope that you can always see me as that.”
Rivers, who spent 13 years in San Diego, said he considered the possible move to Los Angeles when signing his contract extension in 2015 and despite no longer being in the city he shared a deep connection with, he will still give his all to Los Angeles.
“I know it’ll be different, but just know that … I’ll play like crazy and fight like crazy, as a Los Angeles Charger, just like I did for you guys,” he said. “And I know y’all can respect and understand that. But I hope you also know that I will always be playing for San Diego as well.”
