Chase Young and the Washington Football Team were able to secure a place in the Playoffs after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles. Eagles coach Doug Pederson surprisingly took Jalen Hurts out of the game.

That decision proved to be the nail in the coffin for the Eagles. After the game, Young was heard calling out Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ star Tom Brady, whom Washington face next.

NFL Analyst Nick Wright featured on First Things First to discuss Washington’s victory. Wright thoroughly enjoyed Chase Young screaming Tom Brady’s name after Washington’s win over the Eagles.

He thinks that Brady is maxed out on motivation right now, and will not be further motivated by Young’s call out. So the move is low risk and high reward for Young and Washington.

He said, “I love this from Chase Young. This is all reward and no risk. It’s not like Tom Brady was at anything other than peak motivation, attention, and focus on this game.

“So you’re not getting a better version of Tom Brady because of this. But if you’re right and you call your shot, Chase Young has the talent of a Hall of Fame caliber player.”

Chase Young – Ready for Tom Brady

Wright went one step further and said Chase’s call-out could be played if and when he enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “He was the #2 overall pick.

“That’s why he is the captain as a rookie. And if Washington wins this game, and Chase young goes onto have a brilliant career, this quote is brought up at his Hall of Fame induction.” 

However, despite how much he appreciated the moxie of Chase Young, he warned him about Tom Brady. Brady is one of the most prolific playoff performers in NFL history and is no slouch. His 6 Super Bowl rings are a prime example of why Brady is so dangerous – he is a serial winner.

“I will give one piece of advice – Chase, be ready and mentally prepare yourself for the inevitable and guaranteed phantom roughing the passer penalty that is going to be called against you.

“That is coming. Tom Brady, while he is 6 out of 9 for Super Bowls, he is 30 out of 30 in fake drawing the passer penalty in playoff games.”

Despite the difference in experience, Chase Young showed that he is not afraid of Tom Brady. The mind games have already begun, but will all this really faze Brady?
