The NFL’s reigning defensive player of the year Nick Bosa just threw major shade at the Chiefs’ offensive linemen, claiming “they hold a lot.”

Bosa was prompted to call out Chiefs tackles Donovan Smith and Jawaan Taylor when a reporter asked him if anything stood out about them. He, naturally, replied with the biting accusation.

Bosa, arguably the best defensive lineman in the NFL, has a point. The Chiefs were second in the league in offensive holdings this season with 21, just one behind the league-leading New York Jets, according to the Football Database.

Taylor himself has been a massive penalty liability, guilty of a league-leading 23 yellow flags this season including playoffs, according to NFLPenalties.com. His competition? Fellow Kansas City Chief L’Jarius Sneed. The shutdown corner is in a distant second with 17 of his own penalties, according to NFL Penalties.

Bosa’s rage wasn’t confined to just current Chiefs either. Former Chief lineman Eric Fisher caught a ricochet shot when reporters asked Bosa if he was held on the last play of Super Bowl LIV, which the Chiefs won over San Francisco 31-20.

“Were you held on the last play?” a reporter asked.

“I don’t think they had the back view, but yeah I’m sure… Eric Fisher,” Bosa replied.

Damn! Poor Fisher catching strays from his couch.

I do love this type of banter though. Make it real. Convince me you literally hate your opponent. It’s all for a good show and I’m here for it.
