NFL Rookie Justin Herbert Chats With Colin Cowherd About His Red Hot Start

Listen to Los Angeles Chargers rookie quarterback Justin Herbert chat with Colin Cowherd to discuss what it was like to get the call to play so early in his career when taking over for an injured Tyrod Taylor, how it felt to square off against three future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, and Drew Brees in his first four games, his role in Oregon’s conservative offense, the advice he would give future pros like Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, and Tray Lance when it comes to adjusting to the speed of the NFL, how he adapted to being a locker room leader as one of the youngest guys on the team, what it’s been like to play in empty NFL stadiums after playing in one of the loudest venues in college football at Autzen Stadium, and even how his grandfather has always been a fan of Colin Cowherd’s radio show, The Herd.

Herbert is just 1-4 as a starter, but he’s averaged 308.4 passing yards per game in five games, has completed 67.4% of his passes, and has a 12/3 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
