    Billy Volek is the Chargers #2 quarterback. You may think that back-ups have no skills and no talent,because if they did they would be starters, but that is where you would be wrong. Volek is an experienced QB. He is only the fourth QB in NFL history to throw back-to-back 400-yard passing games and the second QB to ever have 900+ yards in a back-to-back game.

    Volek has played only 34 games in his 11 years with the NFL. He has only started in 10 games and that was during his time with the Tennessee Titans.

    Volek holds the record for passing the most yards by a QB in his first 10 starts since 1970, with 2,789 yards.
