The LA Chargers have the privilege of having one of the best quarterbacks in the entire league under center. Justin Herbert took the league by storm the second he had to make an emergency start for Tyrod Taylor and the results have been great ever since.
Herbert has broken just about every record that a quarterback could break in his first three years in the league. Even with injuries galore around him (as well as two injuries of his own), Herbert was able to lead the Chargers to his first playoff berth in 2022.
Herbert still does not have a playoff win under his belt but he has plenty of time to add that to his resume. With how talent he is, it is just a matter of time until he makes a deep run in the playoffs and proves all of those Philip Rivers comparisons false.
Herbert isn't just a talented quarterback, though. He seems to be one of those people that can pick up anything and be great at it. His golf swing looks like it was straight out of a swing factory and he has proven to be quite the fisherman.
The latter of those two skills is going to be on full display on CBS Sports as the Sport Fishing Championship is hosting NFL players for "The Catch" on April 15. We know who the early favorite should be.
Chargers' Justin Herbert is going to dominate his NFL peers at fishing.
I am not someone who knows a lot about fishing. In fact, I have only gone fishing once in my life and my very first cast (this is a true story) I caught a fish within 10 seconds. Haven't gone back since as I have conquered everything I need to conquer in the fishing world.
One thing I do know is that Justin Herbert is a pretty good fisherman. During the peak of the Austin Ekeler trade drama, he posted a photo of his latest catch on Instagram. Heck, this guy was the fishing club president for his high school in Eugene, Oregon.
C'mon now. Justin Herbert has to be the runaway favorite to win this competition. This guy was born to sling footballs 50 yards downfield and reel in fish that would make your grandfather jealous.
Chargers fans should make sure they tune in on April 15 to see all of the action... that is, as much action as there is when someone else is fishing.
