“More guys should be doing what Joey is.” - Nick Hardwick

Also, the "guy" Bosa is working out with is former Chargers strength coach Todd Rice, who Bosa credits with getting him back from his hamstring injury last year ahead of schedule.
Nice. Joey knows the best use of his time, and the team knows that Joey playing well makes it easier for each and every one of them. When JB requires a double team every play and Mebane gets to the QB, knocks the ball in the air, and Jatavis grabs the ball en route to the end zone.... everything is peachy.

I don't care how successful any player was in previous seasons... there is something about sweating/bleeding/and working along side of each other... and building true relationships happens between all of those things in the downtime.

We are a 9-23 team over the last two years. Time to bring it together as a tight knit team and "Always Compete" for a successful 2017 run
To me it isn't about building good relationships with each other, remember Kobe & Shaq.... It's about giving %100 effort when the games are being played, and being ready to do that when training camp starts....

I doubt Bosa shows up at training camp fat & out of shape..... I could be wrong tho I doubt it!

I look at it from the perspective of a former Marine.

We built unbreakable brotherhoods not from how we performed on "game day", but on how we trained together, laughed together, shared stories together, struggled together, argued together, partied together, etc. THOSE are the things that brought us together... and when it came time to perform, there wasn't anything we wouldn't do for one another.

I understand the difference between the NFL and USMC, but there are some parallels too, and that includes coming together as one unit, one team, and fighting for each other.

AND

"Everybody into the pattern."

Semper Fi - you are correct. Even when we played HS football, the camaraderie was built off the field just as much as on the field. So too with the Marines. Even now some 60 years since I left the Marines, I have a bond with other Marines.

That togetherness is build both on and off the field.

From what I have read, Bosa is supposed to be in SD for Phase 3 of the offseason program (the OTAs).

They are currently in Phase 2 of the offseason program. With no live contact before Phase 3, there's not a lot going on (especially since rookies aren't on board yet). Phase 3 starts in May after the draft.

The NFL's offseason workout program is broken into three phases: (1) strength/conditioning/rehab, (2) on-field workouts (no live contact), and (3) organized team activities, also known as OTAs.
Quote:
Los Angeles Chargers
First day: April 3

OTA offseason workouts (Phase 3): May 16-18, May 23-25, June 5-6, June 8-9

Voluntary minicamp: April 25-27

Mandatory minicamp: June 13-15
What I am interested in seeing is whether Bosa shows up for the voluntary minicamp for teams with first year coaches that goes on this week.

Bosa will be there when it counts and play hard all season, dude is a gamer. But don't think he forgot about the way the team negotiated with him and how little johnny cried to the media when he didnt get his way.

Wouldn't be surprised if he plays out his rookie deal and then bounces.

The fact that the team negotiated with him the same exact way as his 52 teammates is wayyyyyyy in the rear-view mirror. He's working out in his way and there's nothing coming out of Chargers camp that is raising a stink.

Unlike some of the other Chargers (like PR), Bosa is made for LA. If he's producing, he will be a Charger in 2021 and beyond.
