“Justin Herbert Was Making Some Amazing Throws”- Aaron Rodgers Lauds Chargers Quarterback

Rookie Justin Herbert enjoyed arguably the best individual performance of his short NFL career on Monday night. The 22-year-old quarterback powered the Los Angeles Chargers to a convincing 10-20 lead at halftime against the New Orleans Saints.

In doing so, he became the youngest quarterback in NFL history to throw four TDs in a Monday Night Football clash. The University of Oregon product threw for 264 yards against the Saints.

However, he could not lead his team to a win as the Chargers suffered a loss by a 30-27 scoreline in overtime. This was Herbert’s fourth-consecutive loss in the league since making his debut in Week Two.

Despite the defeat, Herbert grabbed headlines with some impressive plays against a strong Saints defense. He also managed to grab the attention of the Green Bay Packers’ legend, Aaron Rodgers.

Two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers made his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday. He was asked about Herbert’s performance in Monday’s loss to the Saints, and here’s Rodgers’ assessment.

“I enjoyed watching him in college, big arm.. Last night it seemed like he was making some pretty amazing throws, get four touchdowns and no picks. They’ve lost like, I saw a stat this morning, like 13 games by one score…that’s tough.

“But I think he (Justin Herbert) started off throwing the ball very well, I feel bad for Tyrod…he’s one of the NFL good guys and he’s not had an opportunity to be a long-term starter,” Rodgers said on the show.

The Chargers are on a 1-4 record at the moment and face an uphill battle to make the Playoffs this season. Anthony Lynn’s boys play the Gardner Minshew-led Jacksonville Jaguars in Week Six.

Justin Herbert will be desperate to put an end to his losing streak; what’s more, a win will certainly boost the team’s morale as we approach the halfway stage of the ongoing season.
