The LA Chargers already have one of the best quarterbacks in the entire league in Justin Herbert. He is the single reason why the Chargers have been more aggressive in the last three years than the franchise has ever been in bringing in external talent.

Herbert is already playing at such a high level despite only having three years of experience under his belt. Many quarterbacks would do anything to reach the level that Herbert is already on; one that he might end up leaving behind in 2023.

There is not much room for growth with Herbert but that is exactly what Chargers fans might see in 2023. It all stems around offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who is in the running for the best coordinator upgrade in the entire NFL from this offseason.

Chargers head coach Brandon Staley is already drinking the Kool-Aid. In a phone interview with Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, Staley broke down how special it was to see his new-look offense during Chargers minicamp. If this does not hype up the fanbase, nothing will.

"I left the practice field of the last practice of minicamp saying that was the best throwing session that we’ve ever had since we’ve been here. It was the highest level, it was the highest quality of play, both sides of the ball, since I’ve been here. [...] The play-calling on both sides of the ball, the quality of the players, the belief system and how we’re doing everything, I left the field saying, This is exactly why we hired Kellen."

It still is only June and you would hope that an offense would look good during minicamp when there is no real competition. Plus, even if it was not perfect, Staley is not going to go to the media and tell them how horrible practice was in this new system.

But coming off of the tails of Sebastian Joseph-Day's comments about the new offense, it is incredibly hard to not be excited about what is in store in 2023. We all know how talented Herbert is, now it is time to see what he can do when his offensive scheme isn't holding him back.

Just look at what Moore did in Dallas with Dak Prescott. Granted, that was a really talented offensive group and Dak is a good quarterback, but he is not on the same level as Herbert. If Moore could elevate Dak into being in the conversation among the elite QBs, just imagine what he can do with someone who is already in that exclusive group.
