All the preseason and training camp criticism was calmed down in Week 1 as Ja’Marr Chase carved up the Minnesota Vikings to the tune of five receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. The performance came after a drop-filled preseason and reported struggles during training camp.
Joining Good Morning Football on Wednesday, Chase was asked what he’d say to the naysayers who had so much to say about him.
“I like to tell them, ‘Enjoy the show.’ That’s all I can tell them,” he said. “A lot of news coming. I’ve been hearing this since I was young, you know what I’m saying? But I’m not worried about it. This is my job right here, and my job is to catch the football and make plays. So I’ma let them sit back and enjoy the show.”
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver has high hopes for his NFL career.
“I’m trying to break every record I can,” Chase told Good Morning Football. “I’ll make my way to break as many as possible.”
His performance helped the Bengals earn a 27-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
Back in 2019, the receiver led the country with 1,780 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns that season on 84 catches, helping LSU finish 15-0 with a national championship alongside current teammate Joe Burrow at quarterback.
