Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Chargers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

Despite the loss to the Raiders, Chargers fans aren’t spiraling into any kind of a depression.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 43 percent of Chargers fans believe the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from just 14 percent last week. Yes, half the fan base still can’t see any light at the end of the tunnel, but to see a double-digit shift upwards following another crushing defeat at least shows we all have a stronger gut this season.

When it comes to the confidence in head coach Anthony Lynn...there isn’t any. Of all the fans surveyed on whether or not Lynn is the right fit for the Bolts going forward, every single one of them said he is not.

On the complete opposite side of things, the entire country is all-in on quarterback Justin Herbert.

This week, Reacts asked all NFL fans who should win the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. Herbert earned 39 percent of the vote, ahead of first-overall pick Joe Burrow with only 33 percent and fellow rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa who garnered just 8 percent.

Herbert and Tagovailoa face off this weekend as the Chargers play the Miami Dolphins. Despite the Rookie of the Year voting, fans picked the Dolphins to win this weekend’s game.

Nationally, fans were also asked who will win the rest of the major awards. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was picked as the MVP, edging out Russell Wilson. However, Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was picked as Offensive Player of the Year. On the other side of the ball, Rams superstar defensive tackle Aaron Donald was selected as the Defensive Player of the Year and Dolphins head coach Brian Flores was picked as the Coach of the Year.
