Philip Rivers denies that he needs to completely change the way he plays football.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has insisted that he does not need to "fix" his game.

Rivers said that he is fed up with the discussion that he is solely responsible for the Chargers' misfiring offense.

"The thing that's gotten to me this off-season is, 'Who's going to fix Philip?'" Rivers told The Los Angeles Times. "That phrase, I almost laugh it off. That drives me nuts, really.

"There's no question I'm responsible for some of the plays and some of the games we haven't won. I'm not going to shy away from that.

"But we can go sit in there and watch a lot of tape from last year, and I'll ask you, 'What do you want to fix?' It's just about eliminating some of the bad plays."

Rivers completed 338 of 527 attempts last season.
