We all are waiting. We all know it will happen at some time. We just want to know when someone will finally cave in to the demands and make this happen.

If Joey Bosa wants to be the starter at the start of the season, then he needs to get his butt in camp as soon as possible. He likely would want to sign in the next few days in order to make that happen.

If he is as bitter as some of the reports say, he likely will wait for a few games before he signs his deal. No matter what, I can’t see Bosa sitting out the whole season. The money is sitting there for him and that money doesn’t change if he holds out. His contract would just end another year later.

The Chargers have played this game in the past and they have held strong on their end. It will be up to Joey to make the move. It is up to him to make this thing go. When will he budge?

With the season getting closer and closer, he has to be itching to get onto the field. He has to be itching to pick up the phone and make something happen.

The talk of the town is all centered around him and this contract dispute. The blame goes all around, but someone has to move. The only people that are suffering are the fans.

If I had to make a prediction, I think that we will sign him right after the second preseason game. He won’t be able to see much time in that third preseason game, if any time at all, but he will be able to get on the field for some reps in the final preseason game. He will get a couple of weeks work with the starters in camp and can be ready for the season.

Here is my prediction: Aug. 20.

What date do you guys have?
