Let the countdown to the NFL season begin. The 2023 season kicks off with what promises to be one of the hottest games of the season. The reigning Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, will go up against one of the most buzzed-about teams in the NFL right now, the Detroit Lions. The game takes place on Thursday, Sept. 7. Are you ready? I’m so beyond ready. One of the key components of a winning football team, of course, is the quarterback. Throughout the years, a handful of quarterbacks have become household names. Think Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. So, who are the best NFL quarterbacks for the 2023 season? Here are my picks.
Honestly, No. 1 shouldn’t be a surprise. I won’t say his name here, but you’ll see it at the end of this list. I don’t think anyone would argue that this young man isn’t the best quarterback in the league right now. Maybe a few think he’s overrated, but his numbers say something else. But, picking the rest of these quarterbacks wasn’t easy. I could have gone with all the usual suspects, but I really wanted to do some research and game-watching and pick the 12 quarterbacks that I think are the strongest in 2023, instead of the typical favorites. That said, I still included some names that just couldn’t be ignored. I mean, you can’t make a list like this and leave someone like Jalen Hurts off.
The 2023 season should be exciting. I think we will see some surprises, which is always fun. So, who are the best NFL quarterbacks for the 2023 season? Read on for my picks.
