Whether Justin Herbert should have played against the Jacksonville Jaguars today with his rib cartilage injury or not, he did - and he hasn't played well.
Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers lost big today as Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars destroyed their defense in a 38-10 win. The game was completely out of reach by the beginning of the fourth quarter - but that's when fans started getting annoyed.

Oldest NFL coaches in 2022: Where Pete Carroll, Bill Belichick, others rank among aging head coachesHowever, there are still plenty of venerable veterans roaming the sidelines for NFL clubs. And most NFL fans will be able to name at least some of the league's oldest coaches because they are the ones that have been around the longest.
Herbert remained in the starting lineup for the Chargers even after the game was obviously out of reach. With Herbert still dealing with his rib injury, fans are fuming that the Chargers allowed him to continue playing.
Many are ripping head coach Brandon Staley and the rest of the organization for putting Herbert at risk like that when the outcome of the game was already decided:
Justin Herbert finished the game 25 of 45 for 297 yards and one touchdown with an interception and a lost fumble. He was only sacked once.
The Chargers showed no reluctance at all to let him throw the ball a lot in this game.
Perhaps the extent of Herbert's injury has been overstated despite how painful it's believed to be. While not the best numbers, being forced to throw often could have played a big influence on him looking off today.
Should the Chargers have pulled Herbert from the game when it was obviously lost?
Pine Island residents recount horror, fear as Ian bore down .
PINE ISLAND, Fla. (AP) — Paramedics and volunteers with a group that rescues people after natural disasters went door to door Saturday on Florida's devastated Pine Island, offering to evacuate residents who spoke of the terror of riding out Hurricane Ian in flooded homes and howling winds. The largest barrier island off Florida’s Gulf Coast, Pine Island has been largely cut off from the outside world. Ian heavily damaged the only bridge to the island, leaving it only reachable by boat or air. For many, the volunteers from the non-profit Medic Corps were the first people they have seen from outside the island in days.
