Justin Herbert spoke with NFL Network's Taylor Bisciotti Saturday, saying, "There's a lot to improve on. I think if I could master the offense [and] if I could go to the line of scrimmage and have a plan of exactly what we're going to do. I think I can always work on footwork as well, stepping up in the pocket, getting the ball out quickly. There's a lot of stuff to cover." (NFL.com)
Herbert burst onto the scene last season like an RKO out of nowhere. The then-rookie was fantasy football's QB7 on a points-per-game basis. Herbert, though, will have to learn his second offense in as many seasons with newly-hired Joe Lombardi replacing the departed Shane Steichen as play-caller. Herbert totaled a 66.6% completion percentage, 4,336 passing yards, a 31:10 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and 7.3 yards per attempt as a rookie in 15 games.
