I’m not sure what former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho has against Justin Herbert, but the Los Angeles Chargers quarterback sure did make Acho eat his words today.
A few weeks ago, Acho went viral for his hot take on Herbert, during which he called the young phenom a “social media quarterback.” Social media wasted little time letting him have it, led by the Los Angeles Chargers Twitter account, which released a video torching the former Brown, Eagle and Giant.
Acho wasn’t about to back down from his assessment of the Chargers quarterback, though.
Prior to Herbert’s Sunday Night Football contest against the Miami Dolphins, a salty Acho decided to drop some bars on the Chargers and Herbert after the team denied him a field pass for tonight’s game.

Acho begins with the line, “These social media quarterbacks, I don’t like. Them Herbert QBs, not my type.”
“Throwing pick sixes all day and night,” he continues, before going on about how the Dolphins are going to beat the Chargers up and down the field.
Well, fast forward to the final whistle, and it was Justin Herbert and the Chargers who got the last laugh after beating the Dolphins, 23-17, on primetime.
Once Herbert was done handing the Dolphins their L, NFL fans took to Twitter to hand Acho a big fat L as well.
With the win, Herbert and the Chargers improve to 7-6 and are right back in the AFC playoff picture.
As for the Dolphins, the loss drops them to 8-5, making next weeks game pretty much a must-win contest for Mike McDaniel’s club if they want any chance at catching the Buffalo Bills for top spot in the AFC East.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
