In his remarks to the news media after Sunday’s 38-28 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had a lot to say about the opposing quarterback.

“I think [Mahomes] has a chance to be a really, really, really awesome player,” Rivers said. “He has some arm power. I’d like to borrow his arm every now and then for some of those throws. He can really throw, and he’s really accurate.”

“I hadn’t seen a ton of him, but he was really accurate today on some of those balls that just came out,” he continued. “He seems to have [the ability to] throw it from any arm angle, and he was poised. He was poised.”

Rivers also spoke about Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who had 169 yards on seven catches during Sunday’s game.

“I mean that guy — Tyreek Hill — is unbelievable to watch. What a dynamic player. I don’t want to make any too crazy of statements, but he is one of the most dynamic guys. I don’t know if I’ve seen anybody better — the things he can do speed-wise — in all my time playing.”

And Rivers — now entering his fifteenth NFL season — has seen a few guys play.
