The Chargers defensive end did not mince words after Monday night’s game, reports Daniel Popper.
Bosa said of Raiders QB Derek Carr, “We knew once we hit him a few times he was really shaken up. And you saw on (Covington’s) sack he was pretty much curled up before we even got back to it.. great dude, great player … but we know that once you put the pressure on him, he kind of stops. “
These two teams play twice per season, but it is assumed that Bosa has no hesitation about the rematch in the regular season finale.
And he sees a different team of officials every week, but that hasn’t stopped him from saying this too:
“Umpires are blind. I’m sorry, but you’re blind. For example, open your eyes and do your job. It’s so bad. It’s amazing.… These guys have to do a better job, because it has been years of terrible, terrible missed calls left and right. It’s really pathetic, honestly. “
Bosa said this in reference to an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against him at the end of the fourth quarter after complaining of a no-appeal. He also called his own reaction “pathetic”.
“Obviously it’s my turn,” Bosa said of the penalty. “I should never lose my control like this.”
