Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers:
It’s safe to say that if Justin Herbert had any sort of defense the Chargers could’ve made some noise in the playoffs, the team overall was really inconsistent but win or lose Herbert showed he is a premium talent in the NFL. Chargers OC Joe Lombardi’s play calling was suspect at times, as if he wasn’t using Herbert to his full ability.
However Herbert would shine time and time again on broken plays, making something out of nothing in many instances. Herbert is due for a bigger monster season and the Chargers brought some much needed help on the offensive side of the ball.
Herbert has all the tools to leave his mark in history, and so far he is on pace to becoming not only one of the top 3 QB’s in the AFC but the NFL as well. At only 23-Years old Justin Herbert threw for 5,014 Yards, 38 TD’s and 15 INT’s. Giving his Kansas City rival a good run for his money as far as talent level goes and head to head matchups.
If Herbert keeps breaking records and gets his team to do some damage in the playoffs, he could be mentioned with Allen and Mahomes very soon.
