Good morning, Chargers fans!
Despite the news being better than it could have been regarding Justin Herbert’s rib injury, many have voiced the opinion that the Chargers should rest him against the Jaguars and roll with Chase Daniel as the starter for a week. It would give Herbert seven more days to heal up and some are confident that Daniel can get the job done with the talent the team has around him.
So for today’s discussion, I want to hear your thoughts on the matter. If given the choice, would you sit Herbert for another week? Do you believe Daniel has what it takes to get the Chargers back in the win column, even against a Jags team that just shut out the Colts?
I think he’d have a good chance, but it all comes down to how much Herbert’s pain shrinks over the coming days. If he’s still seen as a game-time decision come Sunday, you might as well let him rest.
Let me know what you think the comments below.
