SAN DIEGO (AP) - The quick, 10-yard slant pass from Philip Rivers hit Malcom Floyd in stride, and bingo, it was good for a touchdown and the Qualcomm Stadium gathering roared its approval.
It came Saturday during the team's annual Fanfest workout, and the Chargers are hoping it's a sign of things to come.
For the Chargers to erase their streak of three straight seasons of missing the playoffs, they need Rivers to return to form. Once mentioned among the game's elite quarterbacks, Rivers has scuffled the past two years and is eager to regain his previous form.
If he does so, it'll be under new head coach Mike McCoy, and an offensive staff which is full of new faces.
The Chargers play their exhibition opener Thursday night at home against the Seattle Seahawks.
