‘When I get Tom Brady, I’m going crazy’
Regardless of having a set of divisional matches versus him last season, Panthers protective end Brian Burns isn’t as familiarized as he’d like to be with Tom Brady. So, he can’t await the opportunity to actually present himself in 2021.
The third-year pass rush was included on Tuesday’s episode of the Behind The Mask Podcast on the Bleav Podcast Network, where hosts Takeo Spikes and Tutan Reyes raised the possibility of lastly sacking the seven-time Super Bowl champ quarterback. Burns informed the previous NFLers he’s all set.
“I’m going crazy,” he stated laughingly when asked what he’d do if he were to formally sack the future Hall-of-Famer. “When I get Brady, I’m going crazy.”
Burns notched a career-high 9.0 sacks in 2020. None of those, nevertheless, declared Brady as its victim in either of the 2 video games versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“There’s been so many times I hit him last year, and the ball was gone,” he continued. “It’s just heartbreaking. And there’s one time I did sack him, I got him down, but he fell on the line and it don’t count as a sack.”
And he’s not lying. We discovered the invoices . . .
However Burns, a year much better and a year smarter, understands that sack is coming.
“And that was my goal coming into that year, knowing that he was gonna be in Tampa Bay. I was gonna play him twice a year, I got double the chance to get him,” he stated with a sigh. “Whatever. I got this year.”
