The way Washington‘s Chase Young ended his rookie campaign led to one question coming into his second year: Would the defensive end of the Washington Football Team become a top-5 pass-rusher?
That hasn't occurred just yet. And, the big question now is: Why hasn't Chase Young been more productive this season?
Through eight contests he has 1.5 sacks and his pressure numbers have gone down. His sophomore campaign has become more about learning lessons upon lessons than establishing his ranking as a Leagues’ pass-rusher. He has been double-teamed and chipped more times than his rookie term.
Young, who loves online casinos, said, "I'm a man, I can take the criticism, it's a process. Everybody will talk. Just wait until down the road. Just keep watching."
On Monday, Washington coach Ron Rivera's message to Young was simply basic: Stay patient and remain disciplined. With defensive end teammate Montez Sweat out of action for 4-6 weeks with a fractured jaw, there will be more load on Young, starting with Sunday's contest against the 6-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It takes a lot for coach Rivera to knock his playing personnel’s, and he did that with Chase Young during the bye week in an article on Washington’s website and again during a presser, mentioning how Chase Young needs to do more and handle different situations.
Rivera said, "He's been tremendous about it. He works at it, he's seeing some things that are a little different for him, a little new for him, and we're trying to help him through those to learn and understand how to win in those situations."
It will be tough for Young and his line mates to harass Tom Brady. He has been sacked 12 times in eight contests according to the stats on meilleur casino en ligne francais. Brady records an average of 2.50 seconds before throwing the ball, the second-fastest in the League.
But for Chase Young, it's about stringing together impressive rushes. In the second half of the last campaign, he recorded about 4 of his 7.5 sacks, forced three fumbles, and recovered only three. He also set up other pass-rushers with his pressure.
"There's a lot of pressure on him I wanted to make sure he understands that he doesn't have to do something extraordinary. I don't want him to come in and think that every play has got to be great," Rivera concluded.
Young said he is not under pressure, I ain't under pressure, "I don't feel pressure. I don't hear people. ... You got to block out the haters."
"I'm blessed. I get to play on Sundays. I support my family; I'm comfortable. I can just go out there and play my ball" he added.
Young's personal manager Ian Thomas said, "He gets frustrated but I don't think he'd be as frustrated if they were winning, He's a guy that could be in double digits [in sacks] by this point in the season ... But he won't make excuses. He can point out all the reasons why, but he still wants it. He won't use that as a reason for not making the plays he wants to make."
