However, everyone has learned to never count Tom Brady out. He certainly thrives in high-pressure situations and absolutely relishes playing in the Playoffs. He was never going to let the Buccaneers miss the postseason.

The Buccaneers will play the Washington Football Team in the Wildcard Round. Washington secured their playoff spot after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles in a controversial game. After the game, Chase Young chose to call out Tom Brady and said that he was coming for him in their playoff fixture.

Buccaneers’ head coach Bruce Arians spoke to the press recently. When asked about Chase Young and the Washington Football Team, Arians was full of praise for what Young has been able to do in his rookie season.

He said, “It’s kind of like what Mike Tomlin was talking about. You don’t want to have to draft that high to get guys like that. But you’ve got to play against them. He’s a hell of a player. Making him a captain as a rookie speaks volumes.”

Bruce Arians sends a message to Chase Young

Bruce Arians warning Chase Young about Tom Brady is a real indicator of how far things have come. Earlier in the season, Arians and Brady were often seen publically disagreeing with each other.

However, time has seemingly healed old wounds considering how Arians has displayed a lot of faith in his QB by issuing a warning to the rookie based out of Washington.

“Both those kids from Ohio State, he and McLaurin, are great kids. He’s a handful, but so is Sweat, Payne, the rest of those guys.

“Ryan Kerrigan, I’ve had a ton of respect for a long time. We’ll have our hands full, but it’s one of those games where you better watch what you wish for.”

Brady’s focus will now be on Washington and Chase Young. TB12 will be itching to show Chase Young and the rest of the NFL why he is one of the all-time greats, and that calling him out was a mistake.
