Chase Young on Tom Brady: You think I’m not excited to play against the GOAT?

After Washington clinched the NFC East last Sunday night, defensive end Chase Young said “I want Tom” while making his way off the field.

Tom is Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Bucs head coach Bruce Arians said Young should “be careful what you wish for” when it comes to such a matchup. On Wednesday, Young was unapologetic about his desire to face to Brady for the first time in his career.

He noted that every edge rusher in the league would want to sack Brady and that his goal is to drop any quarterback in his path.

“I play ball,” Young said, via John Keim of ESPN.com. “I’m excited to go against the best. The media, their job is to stir it up. If you know me, I’m excited for every game. Tom Brady, you think I’m not excited to play against the GOAT? You trippin. I’m not going to apologize for saying I want Tom. No, I want every quarterback I play against.”

Brady called Young “a great young player” and noted the second pick of this year’s draft as a Buckeye “so naturally I think the Ohio State-Michigan thing wears off on ’em a little bit.”

Young’s ability to get to Brady will have a lot to do with how much of a chance Washington has to stop the Bucs offense and move on to the next round of the playoffs.

  1. He’s excited to get schooled by the greatest of all time. We’ll check back with him after the game, and see if he’s still that excited

  2. That’s a good attitude. Respect, perspective, and excitement for testing himself. The ambition of youth and self-confidence. Should be a good contest.

  3. I like it. He didn’t guarantee victory or anything. How could a young rookie not be excited for the opportunity to host arguably the best QB of all time in a playoff game? You want a player who wants to test his meddle against the best.

  4. Sorry Chase, his release is too quick for you. Call up Sir Lawrence of the Meadowlands and ask him how good Montana’s release was, though he beat him later …

  5. He shouldn’t apologize,

    And he’s smarter than 99 percent of draftees that don’t understand the media and its goal to stir things up. He wants the best players in the game, most greats yearn for the same great challenges

    Brady struggled against the Rams, Bears and Saints this year and their DLines weren’t as good as Washington’s. Go back to the 07 super bowl against the Giants and you’ll see that Brady has historically struggled against defenses that can generate consistent pressure with their front four.

    Compare the 07 Patriots O-Line to Bucs O-Line. Pats O-Line was a turnstile in that game, current Bucs not so much.
