The factors that help determine teams' pace of play - Scott Spratt
The reality is that snap pace is a complex issue, and it’s very difficult to decouple one actor’s influence from another’s. In recent seasons, quarterbacks, head coaches, and offensive teams themselves have each produced very similar year-to-year correlations in their total of plays per game, between 0.43 and 0.47. Even defensive teams exert some influence over pace of play, showing a year-to-year correlation strength of 0.28.

Chargers' Joey Bosa has some issues with Star Wars - Eric Williams
But football isn't the only thing Bosa cares about. He's also a big Star Wars fan and with "Solo: A Star Wars Story" opening on May 25, he talked about that passion, among other things, before the inaugural Los Angeles Chargers Invitational at Riviera Country Club this week.
