The Los Angeles Chargers are hoping to build on a disappointing but surprisingly promising 2022 season.
Despite the injury, they won 10 games and made the playoffs for the first time since 2018, only to go 27–0 and lose in the Wild Card Round to a red-hot Jacksonville Jaguars team.
The best thing running in Los Angeles right now is quarterback Justin Herbert, universally regarded as an elite or near-elite signal-caller.
The NFL posted a compilation of his top-10 highlights from the 2022 campaign, and it’s a reminder of just how talented he is.

At 6-foot-6 and nearly 240 pounds, Herbert is one of the most physically dominant QBs in the league, and looks like he has a bionic rocket launcher for a throwing arm, not a “Terminator.” Unlike Arnold Schwarzenegger. film series.
The University of Oregon product threw for 4,739 yards and 25 touchdowns in 2022, despite being sidelined for most of the schedule with a painful rib injury.
In addition, he was without wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams for several games.
For 2023, the Chargers will have a new offensive coordinator in Kellen Moore, who comes over from the Dallas Cowboys, and will hopefully open up LA’s attack and instruct Herbert to fire downfield.
Last season, he played too conservatively, which was seen as a waste of Herbert’s talent.
The Bolts also have first-round draft choice Quentin Johnson, a wide receiver considered a speed threat, and they are hoping he will spread the field and make things easier on Allen and Williams.
