Chargers’ Joey Bosa says it’s ‘ridiculous’ how quick Patriots’ Tom Brady can get rid of the football
The New England Patriots made easy work of the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs last week with superstar quarterback Tom Brady leading the team to another AFC Championship Game.
Although Brady has arguably started to decline, Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa would beg to differ as he was blown away by how fast the five-time Super Bowl champion was able to get rid of the football. Bosa said the following about the Patriots superstar during last week’s playoff game, transcription via Pro Football Talk.
“I was there in two or two and a half seconds and it was long gone,” Bosa said.
At another point in the game, Bosa told Brady, “Stop throwing the ball so fast.”
On the sideline after another Patriots drive, Bosa told a teammate, “He really is ridiculous, how quick he can get rid of the ball.”
Ultimately, Brady threw for 343 yards and a touchdown as the Patriots went on to crush the Chargers, 41-28. Running back Sony Michel had a breakout performance rushing for 129 yards and three touchdowns, but Brady controlled the game under center and now will try to advance to the Super Bowl once again.
The Patriots will go on the road to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. New England is the underdog heading into this matchup of the AFC’s best which is an uncharacteristic position for Brady and company as they try to keep the dynasty going with the iconic quarterback under center and Bill Belichick calling the shots on the sideline.
