Herbert’s inclusion on this list could be a bit harsh because he hasn’t done much wrong in L.A. But the former Oregon Ducks star hasn’t exactly done anything special yet either. Perhaps we should call him overpraised instead of overrated. Many analysts and fans absolutely adore him. Some publications are calling him a top-five quarterback while one former head coach compared him to Tom Brady.
The reality is that Herbert and the Chargers blew a 27-0 lead in his first postseason appearance. Herbert has massive upside but it may come to nothing in his current situation. He likes to make risky plays and tries to make things happen. He may indeed become an elite quarterback but he’s not there yet (via TWSN).
