"He is obviously a great young player and we have our hands full with that (defensive) line," Brady said, via NFL.com. "He went to Ohio State, so I think that Ohio State-Michigan thing wears off on him a little bit."

The eager rookie earned his first division title on Sunday in a 20-14 victory of the Eagles. As he walked off the field, Young was heard shouting: "Tom Brady! Tom Brady, I'm coming. I want Tom!"
