Ever since Tyrod Taylor went down with an apparent chest injury before the team’s Week 2 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, Justin Herbert has latched onto the opportunity and ran with it. While he has had some growing pains that come with being a rookie, he has shown why sticking with him is the right choice.

After stating that Tyrod was their guy moving forward once he returns, Anthony Lynn has finally had a change of heart. Whether it be pressure from fans or from management, Herbert is here to stay. On Thursday, Lynn announced that Herbert will be the starting quarterback for the rest of the season. 

“He got thrown in the fire. I thought he handled the situation well and I want to see more of him. It’s not going to be a situation where he’s looking over his shoulder. He’s our starting quarterback. He makes a bad play, he has a bad game, he’s our quarterback.”

It’s certainly taken Lynn long enough to come to the decision, which was driving fans crazy. However, it was the right decision for the team. Through his first three career games, Herbert has completed 72% of his passes for 931 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions. Most notably, he has given the Chargers a chance to win in every scenario, especially against the Chiefs and Buccaneers. 

Statistics aside, Herbert has also showcased his mobility on the field, his cannon-like arm, and resilience in tough situations. Though the team’s 0-3 record with the rookie at the helm isn’t impressive, there’s no doubt that the W’s will start rolling in. While many fans have already known for some time now, the Herbert Era has officially started.
