The Chargers struck gold with Justin Herbert, as he turned in one of the best rookie campaigns we’ve ever seen from a quarterback at the NFL level.

Herbert played behind a subpar offensive line, with a patchwork receiving corps that struggled to stay healthy, and yet, he put his team in position to win nearly every game.

The problem was that the team was coached by Anthony Lynn, and his game management-related decisions were puzzling, to say the least. Had a competent head honcho been at the helm, the Chargers may have been in the hunt for a playoff berth. Nearly all their losses were by one score or less.
