Additionally the Los Angeles Chargers have also taken in Chicago Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack in exchange for a 2022 second-round draft pick and a sixth-rounder in 2023.

There has been a lot of talk that the AFC West Division at the moment has the best set of quarterbacks. With the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Russel Wilson amd such star studded names you wouldn’t say it’s wrong. However NFL pundit, Kyle Brandt on theGood Morning Football believes that the Los Angeles Chargers Justin Herbert is not upto their level.

“I think Herbert is fourth [behind Patrick Mahomes, Russel Wilson and Derek Carr],” Brandt said, “I really do.” Brandt said that Herbert os sub-.500 in his career and threw only 15 interceptions last year while the Chargers have made the playoffs only twice in the last two years.

While Kyle Brandt may not be a fan of Justin Herbert, Chris Simms has spoken fondly of him and has been impressed by his abilities. Simms said that Justin Herbert’s offered him a big advantage.

When you watched film, you think, first off, what’s the physical talent look like? Size. Size is a skill. It’s Justin Herbert, his ability to be big with people on him in the pocket, seeing over people … Athletic, of course. And then, the throwing was off-the-charts good. Too many times, people look at the results and go, ‘How many yards did he throw [for?] Did they win every game?’ Wherever he wants to put the ball, he puts it.That’s what I really liked about him. That’s a narrative I fought and I took a lot of crap for that!”
