Los Angeles Chargers Score An “F” For Daycare Services & Twitter Responded With All The Phillip Rivers Jokes

Did you know that every NFL team got report cards during the offseason?

If you didn’t, you are probably learning about it today like a lot of others. As it turns out, the NFLPA (National Football League Player’s Association) grades each team based on surveys that are sent out to all the players.

Those various grades come together to create a ranking of the NFL teams, and give a better idea of what franchises provide the best environment and working conditions…and which ones stink.

Here’s how the overall grades worked out, with the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings topping the list, and the back-to-back Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs (surprising right?) and Washington Commanders ranked at the very bottom:

Of all the various categories in the survey, which spanned from coaching to cafeterias, the one that has gotten a lot of attention on social media since the ranking came out is Family and Childcare.

The Los Angeles Chargers were one of the worst teams in that category, based upon surveys. Some other teams provided daycare on site free of charge, but the Chargers only provided it offsite, and charged $75 for the first kid, and $50 for each additional child.

As you can see here:

Upon seeing this report card grade, many thought back to the Chargers days with Philip Rivers. For those that don’t know, Rivers played quarterback for 17 seasons in the NFL (mostly with the Chargers), and almost has as many kids as he does years playing pro football.

Rivers and his wife Tiffany just welcomed their 10th child late last year, meaning that if Philip played all-time QB (and why wouldn’t he?), he’s got enough offspring to fill an entire offensive unit.

With that in mind, many on social media were quick to crack jokes that the Chargers might have started charging for daycare when Philip Rivers was still around:
