Dan Henning, coach of the San Diego Chargers, says the benching of Billy Joe Tolliver for the season finale against the Raiders at the Coliseum should be taken as a message by the entire team.
"Position by position, we're looking for the right guys," Henning said. "Some of those that are (on the team) now may not be the right guys."
Henning said that rookie John Friesz will start Sunday.
Tolliver threw crucial interceptions late in the fourth quarter of consecutive losses to the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs.
"I think Tolliver has a future as a quarterback in this league and can win," Henning said. "He has gotten to the point where he does many things far and above from what you'd expect a second-year quarterback to be able to do in his development. But he still has a track record in the last part of the game in a number of situations of not making the play that has to be made."
To Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Bubby Brister, there is nothing like a dome.
Two years ago, Brister played one of the best games in his career, passing a 5-11 Steelers' team to a 37-34 upset in Houston that helped knock the Oilers out of the playoffs.
