People often compare football to war. While that comparison is sometimes an exaggeration, there are obvious emotions involved with playing the sport.
Following the Washington Football Team sealing a playoff appearance in Week 17, rookie pass rusher Chase Young made noise by saying “I want Tom Brady.” He was obviously emotional after helping send his team to the playoffs, and he called out one of the best to ever do it as a result.
Well, he got Tom Brady on Saturday, and the results weren’t great.
Washington lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23, and Young didn’t bring down the six-time Super Bowl champion.
But we also learned something about Young. He’s a guy who is willing to own up.
After the game, the Ohio State product sought out Brady on the field to congratulate him. We aren’t sure what words were exchanged, but the gesture in itself is respectable regardless. Check it out below.
