    LAS VEGAS (CBSLA) — For the fifth straight year, the AFC has beaten the NFC in the Pro Bowl game. In a wildly entertaining matchup between the league’s biggest stars – not playing in the Super Bowl – the AFC, compiled of 44 players voted in by fans and a panel of sports journalists and coaches, hung on for a a narrow victory over the NFC, also made up of 44 stars selected in the same format.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Justin Herbert is a dynamite young quarterback. He was the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year last season, and he started this year showing that he intends to be a part of the future of the league at the quarterback spot. He is, without question, excellent at his job. Except for when he plays the Patriots. Herbert has now played against Bill Belichick’s team twice, with both meetings coming in Herbert’s home stadium (even though the Patriots fans may have outnumbered Chargers fans on Sunday). Despite being in a good situation with a better team, Herbert just can’t solve the Patriots. The quarterback was just 18-for-35 on Sunday, throwing for 223 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, the second of which essentially lost the game for Los Angeles.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Bill Belichick is always one to talk up opponents, regardless of whether or not they actually deserve the praise. Sometimes, though, Belichick ratchets things up to another level.

The second-year Chargers QB has been excellent since getting his first opportunity ahead of schedule last year, earning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. On Monday morning, Belichick was asked what has made Herbert so successful so soon in his NFL career. “Because he’s really good,” Belichick answered. “Yeah, he’s really good. I thought he was outstanding [coming out of college]. He just really had everything you’re looking for — he’s very athletic, good arm, a lot of poise, played well at Oregon, just a number of big plays. All the passes. All the throws, but extended plays, scrambles, could run the read-zone and all that.” READ MORE: 'This Is Absolutely...
    Star quarterback Justin Herbert has the Los Angeles Chargers pointed in the right direction, and a playoff berth could be in the cards in 2021.Best-case scenarioThe Los Angeles Chargers went with Justin Herbert with one of their first-round picks in 2020, and that selection paid off in a big way in Year 1 for the young quarterback. He went on to be the AFC’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, putting together a historic season and easing the transition away from future Hall of Famer Philip Rivers. Bold predictionJustin Herbert has superstar written all over him, and this could be the year that he makes his first Pro Bowl, and plays in his first playoff game. A bold prediction for the Chargers would be that first-year head coach Brandon Staley proves to be the best choice possible, leading this franchise on a playoff run, and they used the skill of Herbert to win a game on Wild Card weekend. With this roster, there is no reason why they should finish in the bottom of the AFC West, so a No. 2...
    While the expectations may be high for New England Patriots rookie Mac Jones heading into the 2021 season, they will be even higher for the reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Justin Herbert.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is squashing any speculation of a personal AFC West rivalry with Justin Herbert just days after a remark he made about the Los Angeles Chargers quarterback went viral on Twitter.  Mahomes, 25, appeared to take a dig at the second-year signal-caller over the weekend at the American Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe, Calif., when one fan cautioned him: "Watch out for Justin Herbert next year." CHARGERS ARE ‘DEFINITELY GOING TO BE ASCENDING’, NFL NETWORK ANALYST SAYS "I’ll see it when I believe it," Mahomes replied, seemingly mixing up the popular idiom.  Naturally, the clip went viral, but Mahomes told USA Today on Tuesday that it was nothing more than a little trash-talking.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "Yeah, I think it got taken out of context," he explained.

    Rookie of the Year? Please. During the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe this weekend, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes faced some heckling about the new star quarterback in his division. “Watch out for Justin Herbert next year,” a spectator yelled in his direction, referring to the Chargers’ second-year quarterback. Mahomes was not bothered. “I’ll see it when I believe it,” the Super Bowl MVP responded with a smirk. pic.twitter.com/MClJ27PTYr— Rob Collins (@RCFOX4KC) July 11, 2021 The star QB likely meant to say “I’ll believe it when I see it,” but his point was made.

    Patrick Mahomes is not hopping on the Justin Herbert hype train while on the golf course. During the American Century Championship last weekend, a spectator tried to heckle Patrick Mahomes about being on the lookout for Justin Herbert this year. No, the Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback was not having any of it. Herbert may be coming off an incredible rookie season out of Oregon with the Los Angeles Chargers, but Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL today. Given that these two rival teams play in the same AFC West, we will have to wait and see if Herbert is the real deal this upcoming season.

Some of what Brandon Staley’s doing to build a bond with his quarterback is pretty informal, stuff no one would think twice about. The new Chargers coach might send Justin Herbert a clip from practice late at night. He might text, asking for a shot of his scorecard, if he hears the 23-year-old phenom’s playing golf with the guys after practice. Other times, it’s been Staley sending a picture of his son Colin’s wearing a No. 10 jersey to school. And of course, they’ve done the requisite dinners, one-on-ones at the facility and all that. You get these stories every spring, when a new coach gets hired and tied to a young, ascending quarterback, and Staley’s not the only one on the staff making this kind of effort.

    Courtesy of Vikings Justin Jefferson had a strong reaction to losing the Offensive Rookie of the Year award to Justin Herbert. Justin Jefferson is already plotting on how to prove doubters wrong again in 2021. The Minnesota Vikings rookie vowed to make all five teams that took a wide receiver over him in last year’s NFL Draft pay, producing one of the strongest rookie wide receiver seasons in league history by setting a Super Bowl era record in receiving yards (1,400). That was not enough for Jefferson to win the Associated Press’ Offensive Rookie of the Year award, which went to Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert instead.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A record-breaking debut season and an All-Pro nod weren’t enough to earn Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson the NFL’s Rookie of the Year award. That honor went to Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. The Chargers announced Herbert’s win Thursday. Jefferson finished his inaugural campaign with 88 catches, 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns. In addition to breaking Hall of Famer Randy Moss’ franchise records for catches and yards by a rookie, Jefferson broke Anquan Boldin’s league record for rookie yardage in the Super Bowl era.

    Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson had a fantastic debut, but he will not take home one Rookie of the Year Award. The Minnesota Vikings used the draft pick they got in the Stefon Diggs trade to take wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

Jefferson set the NFL rookie record for receiving yards, surpassing Anquan Boldin in 2003 (1,377) in the regular season finale.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The future is looking bright for the Chargers, and much of that is due to the phenomenal play of quarterback Justin Herbert, who was named NFL Rookie of the Year Thursday.

(Getty Images) The 22-year-old Herbert had the most touchdown passes, 31, and completions, 396, by a rookie in NFL history this past season. The No. 6 overall pick out of the University of Oregon in last year’s draft, Herbert threw for a staggering 4,336 yards, second among rookies in NFL history. Herbert also had eight 300-yard passing games, also a rookie record. The other four finalists for the award were Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson, and Washington defensive end Chase Young.

Joe Burrow proved he was well worthy of the top overall selection before tearing his ACL in Week 11. Justin Herbert unexpectedly took over for Tyrod Taylor right before kickoff of Week 2 and shined far brighter than anyone expected as a first-year signal-caller, capable of making some absurd throws and putting up huge numbers on a semi-regular basis.

    Justin Jefferson might end up with some hardware at the end of this season. While Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is in pole position for the Rookie of the Year award, he is by no means completely clear of some of his competition. Herbert might need to start looking over his shoulder at Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who continues to accrue yards and touchdowns at a tremendous pace. Jefferson’s performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars put him over 1,000 yards in his first 12 games. The other four wide receivers to hit 1K in that 12-game span are Randy Moss, Odell Beckham Jr., Anquan Boldin, and Marques Colston.

    Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert got an unexpected start Sunday afternoon against the Chiefs after Tyrod Taylor was scratched from the lineup just before the contest started. Herbert, a rookie from Oregon, had been expected to sit behind Taylor for most of the year to develop his first-round arm for the future. Instead, he has been thrust into duty. Taylor reportedly is dealing with an injured chest.  UPDATE: Taylor has officially been ruled out for the entire game.

    NFL rookies are behind the eight-ball this year, but Justin Herbert’s quote from “Hard Knocks” is still a bit concerning for the Chargers. After years with Philip Rivers entrenched as the starting quarterback, the Los Angeles Chargers moved on this offseason. With the sixth overall pick in April’s draft they took Justin Herbert, and they hope he’ll be the franchise quarterback for a decade-plus like Rivers was. With no organized on-field offseason work, a different training camp and no preseason games, NFL rookies are behind the proverbial eight-ball this year. Quarterbacks are facing a particular learning curve, with a step up from college offenses that can be greatly simplified to a more complex NFL offense. The Chargers have consistently professed faith in Tyrod Taylor as their starting quarterback this year. He may only be a one-year bridge to Herbert, but it’s safe to say as long as the Chargers are winning games and in playoff contention, Taylor will be starting.What was Justin Herbert saying on Hard Knocks?So Herbert will be not be starting Week 1, and there’s a chance he...

He also spent most of his career at Oregon taking snaps from the shotgun and clapping before plays in lieu of calling out signals.
