Rookie Justin Herbert had his first start of his NFL career on Sunday after starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor experienced chest pain prior to kickoff and had to be taken to the hospital. He pushed the Chiefs to overtime where Los Angeles ultimately lost the game on a 58-yard field goal.
Herbert completed 22 of 33 passes for 311 yards and a touchdown. That wasn't a strong enough performance to take Tyrod's starting quarterback job. Immediately following the loss head coach Anthony Lynn said that Tyrod is still the team's starter.
#Chargers coach Anthony Lynn on Tyrod Taylor: “If he’s 100 percent ready to go, he’s our starter.”

This just proves one thing, Anthony Lynn is a crazy person. Or Herbert can't do anything to win the starting job. Tyrod is going to have to lose it, which he'll probably do a few weeks too late to salvage the season.
