Chargers fans are disappointed in the way that the 2020 season has played out, but the future is something to be thankful for this holiday season.

While I’m not really a turkey guy myself, Thanksgiving is always a fun time to think about how the year has played out. Mostly, it’s a fun few hours to think about the good things that happened and maybe not think about the bad for a while.

One score losses? Erase them from your memory for now. The state of the secondary? Relax. Ingest some of that sweet, sweet Turkey day tryptophan and let’s talk about the future of the Los Angeles Chargers.

The quarterback of the future has been found.

Prior to the season, no one even knew if Justin Herbert would play this year. Now, he has a very realistic chance to break the rookie passing touchdowns, passing yards, and passer rating records.

The offseason was filled with interesting propositions of Cam Newton and Tom Brady. With how they’ve been playing recently, I think avoiding the acquisition of either is worthy of celebration:

Jordan Fuller has been Tom Brady’s favorite receiver tonight

Dreams of Tua Tagovailoa also took over the minds of Chargers fans during the draft process. Safe to say, Los Angeles got their guy. No one would go back and change a thing as of now.

A cheap rookie contract helps as well. The Chargers will eventually have to give Herbert that big Mahomes-sized contract, but he gives them an affordable four to five year window to build around.

A cannon for an arm, pinpoint accuracy, improved mental processing, and lack of drive-killing mistakes are all qualities to be thankful for in a quarterback. Welcome to the next decade plus, Bolt Fam.
