Chase Claypool is a master of the memes and trolled Tom Brady into a whole other dimension.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are dominating so far in 2020 and improved to 4-0 with a win Sunday over the Philadelphia Eagles. It was a team win, of course, but rookie receiver Chase Claypool stole the show.
The second-round pick scored a total of four touchdowns on the day and appears to be a top target for Ben Roethlisberger. Claypool got 11 targets while Juju Smith-Schuster finished with five. The rookie had himself a day and quickly got on social media after to celebrate, posting a meme to destroy Tom Brady in the process.
Chase Claypool wrecks Tom Brady
This is just, wow, a lot to take in. Brady went from GOAT to goat this week when he seemingly forgot it was fourth down at the end of Thursday night’s game. Claypool had a much different week with four touchdowns and was able to steal Brady’s confused look and hand gesture in the best way possible.
The Buccaneers tried to make it seem like Brady did not in fact forget it was fourth down when he threw and incomplete pass that ended the game against the Chicago Bears. But there is no other explanation for why he would hold up four fingers and stand on the field like he deserved another down.
The Steelers don’t have such worries and now have what looks like another elite receiver in Claypool. He went for 110 yards against the Eagles and even had a rushing touchdown as he gets more involved in the Steelers offense.
Using social media well is a great way to grow popularity and Claypool may have found the secret to stardom if he can keep up the great work on the field as well.
