Bruce Arians Fires Back at Chase Young Over Tom Brady Comment
NFL Wild Card Weekend is set, with six games helping kick off the 2021 NFL Playoffs. One of those matchups features the Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus the Washington Football Team. With Washington clinching a playoff berth on Sunday night, star rookie Chase Young sent Tom Brady a message ahead of their showdown.
However, the first-year player's eagerness didn't sit well with Bucs head coach Bruce Arians, who fired back at Young with a warning.
It sounds like Young's confidence might've just landed him a long day of work on Saturday.
The Washington defensive lineman has had an impressive rookie season, totaling 7.5 sacks, 4.0 forced fumbles and 32.0 tackles. But WFT's chances look slim-to-none against Tampa Bay, with the Buccaneers as 8.5-point favorites in their game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.
Young and Washington's defense will need to slow down Brady if they want any chance of the upset. The 21-year veteran just posted 4,633 passing yards (his most since 2015) and 40 touchdowns (his most since 2007) while being surrounded by the Bucs' bevy of weapons.
It's almost certain that Brady has heard Young's message, and we eagerly wait to see how the quarterback will respond in the Wild Card round.
