Los Angeles Chargers and former Oregon Duck quarterback Justin Herbert had arguably one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history.
And Charger fans, and teammates, are excited to see what he does in his second season.
Including new head coach Brandon Staley.
“This guy’s done a lot for this team,” Staley said. “The way they talk about him, the respect that he’s earned, it’s just one of those things. These guys know he gives you a chance in every single game that you play. He’s earned that respect in such a short time, and there’s still such a long way to go. I’m excited about that.”
Stanley added that Herbert has won the locker room of his teammates due to him having a good head on his shoulders and his work ethic.
Herbert certainly earned that respect last season, finishing with 4,336 yards passing, 31 touchdowns, and just 10 interceptions.
He also ran for 234 yards with five rushing touchdowns.
Time will tell if Herbert can be one of the elite quarterbacks of the league, but it is safe to say he is off to a great start so far.
