Chris Long on Tom Brady: You can’t take it easy on the GOAT

Tom Brady hopes Chris Long remembers their one year together and goes easy on him.

“I hope he doesn’t hit me too hard if he gets a shot. Hopefully he respects his elders a little bit out there,” the Patriots quarterback said earlier this week.

Long got a chuckle out of Brady’s playful request.

“You can’t take it easy on the GOAT,” Long said. “He’s a hell of a dude and a hell of a player. He’s trying to play a mind game with me. It’s that Jedi Mind Trick. You can’t take it easy on him. He knows that. He’s not going to take it easy on us. It’s going to be a great game.”

The two have played against each other only once previously with the Patriots beating the Rams 45-7 in London in 2012. Long had a tackle for loss; Brady completed 23 of 35 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns.

Long hopes to get closer to Brady this time.

“Certainly one of the big matchups will be Tom against our defense,” Long said. “He’s a great, great player. . . . It’s going to be fun to compete against him again.”

  1. Chris Long and Blount are team Patriots all the way. They may wear green and black on Sunday but they will always bleed red, white, and blue.

  2. Chris Long is capable of making a comment that doesn’t address his own personal perceived social injustices? It’s not him going on a personal PR campaign about what charity he donated his money too? Are we sure Chris Long said this stuff?

    What do they think of your Jets team Jet’s fan?

  4. Despite being a limousine liberal who’s made some really questionable tattoo choices, Long sounds like a good dude..

    All of his game checks this season went to charities as did all of the proceeds for the underdog shirts. Who cares if he talks about it? It’s called spreading awareness. I bet all of your paychecks went to paying rent to your parents

    And what have you done to help anyone less fortunate than you this past year?

    Leave it to the internet crowd to criticize someone for donating to charity.

    Goat far from it 3 yard Tom if Elway. Marino. Manning had dictator Bill as a coach they would of undefeated in Super Bowls

    Bill doesn’t do well with Prima Donna 1st rounders that are so self important they refuse to play for the team that drafted them.

    You lost me at “would of”. If you’re going to devote your life to trolling Patriots articles, learn English grammar.

  9. Chris Long seems like a nice guy, and there’s nothing wrong with giving to charity of course, but count me among those who absolutely disagree with his politics. Like those in Hollywood, he has a very distorted lens to look through. Let’s not take our cues from people observing the world through the reflection of their Silver Spoons.

  10. What a great day! The Patriots are gunning for their 6th championship…and Crooked Hillary still isn’t president!

    🙂

  11. Solder to shove Long away with ease all night long…..Long has that one move, and it’s really about his speed and how well he can get off the snap.

    Passer rating vs Eagles D for a QB passing to RBs/TEs: 100.5

    And look at which QBs their Ds faced this year.

    Yikes!

  12. Chris Long has made many game changing plays, strip sacks, fumble recoveries etc. this year. He’s been a great signing. Hoping he has one or two more in him this season, would love to see him separate the GOAT from the football.

    Never change!

  14. The gap between Brady and Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, Brett Favre, Terry Bradshaw, John Elway, Dan Marino, etc is huge and just gets bigger by the season. They were good in their day but Tom Brady is superior because he just keeps on winning. If anything, he is getting better the longer he plays but he also remains modest and focused on the team rather than himself (and to think, all 31 other NFL teams could have drafted him for a late round pick).

    Who is the best best QB and offense the Eagles played?

    You’re right.

    Unless his competition steps it up, Brady will never catch any of them.

    In order for Elway and Marino to have gone undefeated in SB’s, they both would have had to beat Montana and the 49ers. Which of course would make Montana no longer undefeated in the SB and totally out of the running for GOAT.

    Crazy the way that works, huh?
