  • INDIANAPOLIS INDIANA- JANUARY 03 Philip Rivers #17 of the Indianapolis Colts walks off the field after a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lucas Oil Stadium

He assumed the starting job in 2006 and went to the playoffs with the Chargers six times, including every year from '06-09 and again in '13 while the team was in San Diego.

Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Philip Rivers is hanging up his cleats for good following a likely Hall of Fame career.

His retirement comes 13 years to the day since Rivers played in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots just six days after undergoing surgery to remove the ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

"It's just right. I can sit here and say, 'I can still throw it".

Though he was only with the Colts for one season, it was pretty memorable one and it wouldn't be a surprise if more stories like this popped up. Indianapolis was eliminated earlier this month with a 27-24 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

The Colts, who added Rivers to provide stability at the quarterback position after Andrew Luck's surprising retirement before the 2019 season, thanked Rivers in a tweet Wednesday.

The 39-year-old stands fifth all time in passing yards (63,440) and touchdown passes (421) - trailing only Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Tom Brady in each category. I appreciate the opposing defenses making it challenging physically and mentally every week. I also enjoyed the banter.

He thanked everyone from his teams and coaches to his family to fans "that both cheered and booed" to support staff to teammates.

Rivers told Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune on Tuesday that he is retiring from the NFL. I appreciate the referees for putting up with all my fussing. Without a doubt my favorite part of the game, being a teammate.

"Lastly, thank you to my wife and best friend, Tiffany, and our children Halle, Caroline, Grace, Gunner, Sarah, Peter, Rebecca, Clare and Anna".

Unfortunately, playoff success never really came for Rivers, winning just five playoff games during his career, visiting the AFC championship game just once, in 2007. "So I want to coach my boys and I want to coach young boys down the road". "It's been growing. I can't wait".

"No, it's not that easy", Rivers said. "We talked about it other years, but we knew we weren't doing it". "I'm curious to see how many assistant coaches resumes I get in the next 10 minutes or so".
