PFT Live: Chargers talk with Kevin Acee, PFT Planet calls and tweets

The only bit of suspense left in the Chargers season is whether or not both coach Norv Turner and General Manager A.J. Smith will be fired when the year comes to an end.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune wrote Thursday that both men will be sent packing and that the decision to drop the axe has already been made. The Chargers deny that’s the case, but Acee will tell us more about what he’s hearing when he joins Mike Florio on Friday’s PFT Live. Once those two are dealt with, the question will shift to quarterback Philip Rivers‘ future and we’ll hear what Acee has to say on that front.

Then it is time for the Friday PFT Live tradition of turning the show over to PFT Planet. We’re looking for your tweets — @ProFootballTalk — and calls – 888-237-5269 — with questions for Florio to answer before another week comes to an end.

You can watch it all live at noon ET.

    Rivers will be gone too. He is nothing but a back up QB.

    Give Rivers a half decent OL and his numbers will go up again. His problem is he lacks mobility, so needs a decent OL to help him regain his confidence. He has been hit a lot the last 2 years and it shows when he rushes a lot of passes.

    I like Rivers but losing Vincent Jackson was huge. He nearly always drew double coverage which left others open plus he could go up and get the ball in impossible situations.

    I hate to say it but I think his receivers made him look like a better QB than he probably really is.

    doomsdayZen: The facts completely refute that. The year VJ sat out, Rivers had a career year. All the more impressive, considering Gates wasn’t a factor, either. Rivers has always done well with multiple targets, even scrubs off the street.

    So, no, his numbers have not been padded by receivers, and certainly not any more than the other top-tier QB’s.

    IT”S ALL ON THE O-LINE. Or, lack thereof. It’s hard for a QB to throw good passes, when he’s sitting on his arse…

    Simpletons will point to the O-line and while that’s an issue too, he got away with throwing balls up for grabs when he had Jackson.

    Also, that shot put release he has seems to be slowing down.

    Bring Marty back. At least he will get the chargers back to the playoffs before Rivers chokes it away.

    Lol 14+ different no-name receivers in 2010, Jackson out until the 13th game, Gates toe issues and you’re saying his receivers made him? It was the other way around. Take away his o-line with some of those same receivers that are left and you have nothing.

    You can’t throw to Jackson if you don’t have the time.
