The Los Angeles Chargers lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars with 10-38 against them. That remained on the lower side, and what attracted the most attention was Brandon Staley, the Head Coach, allowing Justin Herbert to play throughout the game despite having broken rib cartilage.
Quarter-Back for the Los Angeles Chargers could have been benched for the game as it was in a no-win situation already. When asked, Brandon Staley said that Justin remained on the field as he wanted to be with his teammates and finish the game for his side.
Fans took this statement for a spin, saying there was no need to risk the young QB’s life for the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which was already on the losing edge.
Later, Brandon Staley changed his statement a bit and issued a clarification as per the latest sports news. He said the previous statement was a dialogue before the decision was made. Brandon mentioned that he decided to keep Justin on the field, taking full responsibility for the loss and his health.
Communications are inseparable parts of every sports team. Decisions are made collectively, with the head coach retaining the final say.
Brandon had the power but decided to let Justin give all his efforts to the Sunday event. However, he stressed the need to improve his communication with Justin without regretting the decision. He said that he stands by what he said and would do it again with improved communication with his young player.
The Los Angeles Chargers head coach is taking back a lesson that Justin should know that he has already done enough before moving forward.
