Ranking the projected starting QBs in the NFC for 2023 – #5 – #1
#5 – Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings
Kirk Cousins has been one of the most efficient and consistent QBs in the NFL over the last decade. His time as a full-time starter in Minnesota appear to be coming to an end, but he’s a top five QB in the NFC, without a doubt.
#4 – Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams
I’ve always been a fan of Matthew Stafford and was so happy to see him win a Super Bowl in 2021. I sure hope he can get back to his 2021 production in 2023. His 2022 season was one to forget.
#3 – Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals
Questions about Murray’s commitment to the NFL and perhaps his team itself are valid, but let’s not overthink this. He’s an elite talent at the position, being efficient through the air and on the ground. His ACL rehab is going to spill into the 2023 season, so we might not see much of Murray in the coming year.
#2 – Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
For all his faults, or so according to some, Prescott is a very talented player. However, he’s been in the NFL for seven years and doesn’t have much to show more than nice statistics in the regular season. He’s going to have to make a deep playoff run in the near future or else the Cowboys might benefit from going in a different direction.
#1 – Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles
I think after the 2022 season and a near Super Bowl victory, Jalen Hurts is the best QB in the NFC, and I’m not sure it’s a debate. He’ll likely sign a contract extension in the coming weeks that’ll pay him among the elite signal callers in the NFL.
Him and his Eagles’ teammates look poised to repeat what they accomplished in 2022, but have their eyes set on that Lombardi trophy.
