The fans have lost it with Acho over his repeated attacks on Herbert. And as expected, he received quite a backlash for his most recent take on the QB.

NFL analyst and former player Emmanuel Acho has doubled down on his “social media QB” jibe at Justin Herbert. The NFL announced the change of time slots for the Chargers’ game against the Dolphins.

Acho, who works as an NFL analyst for Fox, had a similar take on Herbert after the Chargers lost a close game against the Kansas City Chiefs. “On social media, they don’t show you interceptions. That’s not fun,” Acho said. “People aren’t gonna retweet a pick, people aren’t gonna retweet a bad sack. People aren’t gonna retweet a bad decision. That’s who Justin Herbert is, a social media quarterback,” Acho had said during the Fox’s ‘Speak for Yourself’ show.

He received quite a backlash from the fans for his comments. Even the Chargers responded to Acho with a video.

Fans come to the rescue, again 

The NFL World is not happy with Acho’s take on Justin Herbert. The fans came out in Herbert’s defense, calling out Acho’s hate for the style of play of the Chargers QB.

A fan asked Acho if he realized the backlash, he would get in the event of a Chargers win.

This Chargers fan pulled up the passing yards to debunk Acho’s take.

A fan directly called out Acho and said no one would know him if it weren’t for social media.

This fan wants to know why Acho is keeping on with his Herbert “hate”.
