6. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins
Tua Tagovailoa is returning as the starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins after suffering multiple scary concussions last season. It was so bad for Tua that he himself admitted that he contemplated retiring after the 2022 season.
While Tua and the Dolphins have become a rival because of the parallels to Herbert and the Chargers, every fan can agree that we all hope Tua can continue his playing career in a safe way. At the end of the day, he is still a key figure in the youth quarterback movement and was playing well for Miami last season.
That being said, Brandon Staley schemed a master game plan against Tua last season and unless Mike McDaniel has different tricks up his sleeve, the same thing could happen this year.
5. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
Dak Prescott is a solid quarterback and he really is the gate-keeper to being a great quarterback in the NFL. There are moments in which Dak truly does look like one of the greats and pilots the Cowboys to success. However, those moments are not consistent and ultimately leave him on the outside looking in when it comes to that discourse.
Hopefully the Chargers don't get the best version of Dak when they host the Cowboys in 2023. If so, it is going to be a much tougher game against a Cowboys team that has a solid defense. That being said, having Kellen Moore in the building to help Staley game plan is going to be huge.
