Big fan of Los Angeles football? Then check out this list of Los Angeles Chargers quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout San Diego Chargers history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must-- and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.
