Getty Sebastian Joseph-Day is all smiles before the NFC playoff game against the Green Bay Packers in January 2021.

Looks like practice sleds are no longer safe from Sebastian Joseph-Day of the Los Angeles Rams.

The veteran nose tackle, now entering his fourth season with the team that drafted him in 2018, used power and force during a sled drill on Monday afternoon, August 23, in Thousand Oaks that Rams team reporter Stu Jackson described as powerful… powerful enough to leave destruction.

In a subsequent tweet, Jackson captured the image of the damage Joseph-Day left behind.

Then, Rams team broadcaster J.B. Long captured an image of Ram coaches and players attending to the sled.

Rams beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic also sent her brief condolences to the sled that felt Joseph-Day’s wrath on this Monday.

‘Bash’ Has Aimed to Improve His Hands and Power

Maybe it should come as no surprise that “Bash” would eradicate a sled.

After all, he did spend his entire offseason aiming to improve his hands and power, especially when engaged with blockers come Sundays.

This 15 second workout video shows Joseph-Day working on some hand techniques before the start of OTA’s.

Here’s two more from the March 2021 archives which shows the 26-year-old playing a special kind of volleyball: With a medicine ball.

“Bash” continued to carry over the work into May – on the eve of the Rams’ OTA period.

On Monday, August 2, during the Rams’ training camp at Crawford Field at UC Irvine, Joseph-Day shared the real reason behind wanting to improve his hands and strength: Because he’s aiming to improve as a pass rusher.

“(My pass rush) was a big thing for me and a big thing when I talked to Coach Henny (defensive line coach Eric Henderson),” Joseph-Day said after that practice. “I think he really wanted me to hone in on pass rush ability. Working on moves and working in edge and seeing things quicker. So, a lot of my off season was spent on that.”

It’s not determined if that particular drill that saw the loss of sled life was designed as a pass rushing drill. However, ESPN Rams reporter Lindsey Thiry captured this after the sled malfunction: Rams defensive linemen working on batting down passes, considered a pass rush practice.

Celebrations for ‘Bash’ Commences

Joseph-Day certainly definitely lived up to his nickname “Bash” during that sled drill near the Cal Lutheran campus.

His Ram teammates celebrated. Others reacted online, including college football defensive end Mike Tverdov of Joseph-Day’s alma mater Rutgers.

Bally Sports reporter Sarina Morales, who was previously one of the team reporters for the Rams, tweeted this.

One fan wondered if the Rams nose tackle channeled an inner Hulk.

Another fan thought it would be appropriate to pour out a 40 ounce for the sled.

Lastly, defensive lineman trainer Eddy McGilvra, who trains NFL linemen including Joseph-Day during the offseason, sent this request via a tweet to “Bash.”

As for the entire practice day, McVay used the word “flat” to describe the atmosphere, mentioned here by Thiry.

But overall, on a day that McVay verbally illustrated as less-than-exciting, the defensive line group had the opposite of a boring day as noted by Rodrigue.

P.S: Joseph-Day responded to one tweet about his sled obliteration.
