Herbert striving for consistency: 'We have to put together a full season'
"It's all about consistency," Herbert said on "SiriusXM NFL Radio." "We have to put together a full season for us to play the football that we want to."
The Chargers narrowly missed the postseason last year despite finishing with a 9-8 record due to a late-season slide that involved an overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and a shocking defeat to the 4-13 Houston Texans. The club struggled with balance as it placed fifth in scoring but 29th in points allowed.
Los Angeles responded accordingly this offseason, adding the likes of Khalil Mack and J.C. Jackson, among others. However, other AFC West teams also improved, with the Denver Broncos acquiring Russell Wilson and the Raiders landing Davante Adams.
"We've definitely added some guys on defense, picked up a few guys on offense, and had a great offseason so far," Herbert noted.
He added: "As soon as the season comes, we understand it's all about execution and being sharp week in and week out, never looking ahead, and making sure we're doing everything we can to give ourselves a shot on Sundays."
Herbert has thrown for 9,350 yards with 69 touchdowns to 25 interceptions over his first two seasons, though he's still in search of his first career postseason berth.
