Joey Bosa has an issue with the NFL Players Association’s recent survey regarding the league’s teams.

After the Los Angeles Chargers received an ‘F’ on the survey for its food and cafeteria setup, the four-time Pro Bowl selection expressed his belief that the letter grade didn’t accurately represent his team’s situation.

“I’ll eat here sometimes,” Bosa told ESPN’s Sarah Bishop. “It may not be the best setup, but they’ll prepare you food that’s plenty good. … They work harder than literally anybody in the entire facility. So they may not have the best means back there, but they freaking work their butts off, and that survey is not cool, man.”

The only team to receive a worse letter grade for its food and cafeteria situation than the Chargers was the Cincinnati Bengals, who received an ‘F-.’

The No. 3 pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Bosa has spent his entire career with the Chargers, the first year of which marked the franchise’s final season playing in San Diego. The Chargers — who share SoFi Stadium with the Rams — are scheduled to move into a new team facility called “The Bolt” in El Segundo, California this summer, which will reportedly have a new food program through a partnership with Wolfgang Puck catering.

As for the teams with the best food and catering setups, the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles were the only teams to receive ‘A’ letter grades in the NFLPA survey.
