Joey Bosa thread. Worth the wait.

Recommended Posts

Nice freakin' debut!

5 total tackles and 2 sacks.

 
Eric D Williams ESPN-
Joey Bosa now has two sacks on the day on 20 defensive snaps.

Yeah, he deserves a thread.  I watched the game today, and the kid was non stop when on the field.  Never stopped pursuing.

Wanted to point out that it looks like the Chargers know how to utilize Bosa.  They didn't force him into the square-peg-round-hole routine.

The let him play DE as a 4-3 (RDE and LDE) all the damn time. He isn't trying to take up 2 blockers and he isn't stuck with OLB responsibilities either.

Joey Bosa Appears To Be Good As Hell

Some impressive stats in there. Despite missing the first four games, he's on pace to get the same amount of pressures that JJ Watt did in his rookie season.

Plan and need to start him this week, but how do we think he'll perform against the Broncos? Had only one tackle two weeks ago against them.

With defensive lineman its always a roller coaster.

Denver has allowed 17 sacks -- only 6 teams have allowed more

Anything know what's going on with him?  I saw a report he left last week with an ankle injury.  But he did play 78% of the snaps.

Production has been horrible the past two weeks - is that due to the nature of the position or is there anything else going on to be aware about?  I didn't see either game.

I saw him stay down after a play and it looked like they were checking his leg but then he was back on the field a bit later.  I think his down production is somewhat based on now teams are accounting for him after his hot start and the nature of the position.

Joey Bosa, not Dak Prescott or Ezekiel Elliott, has been NFL's best rookie

Quote

The 2016 NFL draft class has already made its mark on the NFL, with rookie quarterbacks Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys and Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles leading their teams to the NFL's best record and wild-card contention, respectively. Both players currently rank among the top 15 quarterbacks in Pro Football Focus's grades - Prescott is 11th at 83.9 on PFF's 0-100 scale, and Wentz is 14th at 81.8 - and have arguably been less impressive than Prescott's teammate Ezekiel Elliott, who leads the NFL in rushing with 1,199 yards while also ranking as the No. 1 running back in PFF grades at 86.8.

But as good as all three of those players have been, there is an argument to be made that the best rookie in the NFL on a per-game basis resides on the defensive side of the ball: San Diego Chargers edge defender Joey Bosa.

Bosa is playing at a level just a notch below Von Miller. As a rookie.

After adding a sack+two pressures to his resume, Joey Bosa remains on a historic pace. More pressure than anyone in first 8 games since '06

Joey Bosa will travel to Green Bay Wednesday to receive a second opinion on his injured foot.

He'll get checked out by renowned foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson. Bosa is believed to be dealing with a bone bruise. That's usually not a long-term injury, though Bosa's continued absence has obviously raised questions. We'd consider the stud pass-rusher questionable bordering on doubtful for next week's matchup in Buffalo.

Could have done with a better stat line than 1 tackle for league semi finals 🙄.

Didn't see the game, any injury to report?

Edit: 80% snap count so I'm presuming not 😞

They focused their offensive protections on him all night, letting Ingram be the one who mostly got through.  Ingram not as good as Bosa at finishing the deal, so looked to have been a well-executed plan.

Saw no indication of any injury.
