Found August 24, 2013 on Fox Sports Detroit:
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Willie Young Mr. August taunting a future Hall of Fame quarterback. Whats wrong with that picture? Young, a defensive end for the Detroit Lions who was a star in the preseason last year but a flop in the regular season, wouldnt disclose what he said late in the first half of Thursdays exhibition game to draw a personal-foul penalty or why he did it. Young had pressured New Englands Tom Brady into an incomplete pass and then, inexplicably, grabbed Bradys jersey and started pointing in the quarterbacks face. Lions coach Jim Schwartz immediately removed Young and benched him for the rest of the game, a 40-9 victory over the Patriots. I just cant do things to hurt the team, Young said following Saturday afternoons practice. Asked to elaborate, Young said, What I said is between the lines. What happened between the lines stay between the lines. Young, who indicated that Brady did not do anything to provoke him, said that the incident is in the past. Im moving ...

Lions DE Willie Young taunts Tom Brady

Detroit Lions DE Willie Young decided to taunt New England Patriots QB Tom Brady after his pass went for an incompletion during Thursday’s preseason game.  I guess Young is unaware of the fact that this was a preseason game.  Young was also flagged on the play for taunting, negating the 3rd down incompletion and giving the Patriots a first down.

Willie Young feels the need to taunt Tom Brady after incomplete pass, gets penalized

I’m all about being a fierce competitor, but maybe someone should tell Lions defensive lineman Willie Young to tone it down a little. Grabbing a Hall of Fame quarterback by his jersey and pointing him in the face after a meaningless incomplete pass in a meaningless preseason game isn’t exactly a great look. That’s exactly what Young did towards the end of the second quarter...

The Detroit Lions Probably Don’t Want To Be Taunting Tom Brady Like This During The Preseason

Could someone please let Willie Young and his $1.2 million dollar salary know that it is the preseason and pointing a finger in the face of Tom Brady really isn’t a smart idea.  The Lions are continuing their recent history of making poor decisions, and the below is probably just one in a long line of new ones to come this season. Again, I repeat… Preseason. Next Impulse Sports

Tom Brady Says Patriots Aren’t ‘Anywhere Where We Need to Be,’ After Lions Serve Them ‘Humbling’ Loss

The Patriots were served a big piece of humble pie in Detroit for a second time in three years on Thursday night. Fortunately, both experiences came in the preseason.

Video: Tom Brady gives intense speech to Michigan players

Wow, this really gives you a look at the fiery leader we never really get to see. Tom Brady's got me fired up! One thing's for sure, if ever goes into coaching, he can definitely deliver an Al Pacino type speech! With the team in Detroit for tonight's game, Brady was invited down to visit his alma mater before heading to Ford Field.

Patriots big loss to Lions could be cause for concern

The Patriots struggled in a big way last night against the Detroit Lions. Tom Brady wasn’t bad, but an interception prevented his stats line from looking good by any stretch and the lack of a touchdown pass is very uncharacteristic. The Patriots offense was without Danny Amendola, and that was bound to hurt the team’s productivity. Amendola has taken the role of Tom Brady...

Take a deep breath the Pats are fine

The New England Patriots loss on Thursday night was as ugly as it gets. After a 40-9 loss where the Pats looked like the "little Giants" sans Ice Box and could have used Rashid "hot hands" Hanon's stick'em, the offense dropped the "TP" roll three times as the Lions poured it on in the 2nd half. Tom Brady even looked human for the first time...
