I think it’s pretty awesome how Herbert has absolutely blown up during his rookie campaign with the Chargers. There were a ton of people who thought he’d bust.
Coming out of Oregon, there seemed to be so much pessimism around Herbert and his ability to lead a franchise.

Well, 2020 is almost over, and Herbert now holds the NFL record for the most rookie passing touchdowns. Yeah, I think he’s done more than enough to silence his critics.
Always knew he had it in him.

After watching Herbert torch Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl, I could tell he was going to be more than fine in the NFL. As his rookie season nears an end, I think it’s safe to say I was 100% correct.

Props to Herbert for silencing all his doubters and critics.
