Justin Herbert has been excellent for the Los Angeles Chargers since taking over as their starting quarterback, but his squad has dropped three games in a row and lost six of their last seven.
With the losses piling up, the rookie QB decided to make a change. Not a change on the field, though, a change to his appearance.
When Herbert arrived for his weekly Wednesday presser, the quarterback had a short, buzzed haircut, quite the change-up from his signature slicked-back flow.
"Honestly, it was just getting long and it was time to cut it," Herbert said, stating he's not a superstitious guy.
Herbert's haircut seemed to come out of nowhere, and it sent the entire Twitter world into a frenzy.
In honor of this ridiculous haircut, here is my worst haircut story: After HS wrestling practice, me & some buddies decided to shave off all our hair. I didn't tell my parents. Came to the dinner table with a hat… my mom made me take it off. Then screamed. Then she destroyed me. https://t.co/xYuYNYvaKr

The craziest part about Justin Herbert being the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year is that he's only 14 years old. https://t.co/ZsUIsfK6oS

Justin Herbert became the Chargers’ starting QB because a Chargers staffer stabbed the first-string QB in the lung and somehow still thought it was smart to trust another Chargers employee with scissors https://t.co/Mbx0dbYbzN

Unfortunately Justin Herbert is OUT this week vs the Jets because he got a C+ on his AP Bio test and got grounded. https://t.co/YPEhgkR7IC
