90s NFL

Drew Brees successful due to Philip Rivers’ holdout? Plus the 2004, 2005 and 2006 San Diego Chargers

During his first 3 years in San Diego, Drew Brees was subpar. Thus, when the 2004 NFL Draft came, the Chargers were in the market to draft a quarterback. The Chargers selected Eli Manning while the New York Giants selected Philip Rivers. Conversely, it would be Rivers who would go to the west coast and Manning would go to the Big Apple. Seemingly, the Drew Brees era in San Diego about to come to an end. However, Brees wound up turning his career around. Check out this video that explains what happened.
