Chase, who was perched on a bleacher at Drake Stadium, UCLA, said that he had "put it on my wall" and that he has achieved that achievement. "I feel blessed to be in such a situation."
Chase can next accomplish something that he could not even imagine. He can help the Bengals win their first Super Bowl. New Orleans' receiver says that he didn't have a plan when he was growing up to play in Super Bowl.
Chase stated that his dream was to be a professional football player. That was my main goal. It wasn't to be like, "Win a game, make that catch." It was to just make it to the NFL. It was my greatest dream. It was my greatest dream.
From the age of 9, basketball was his first sport. He picked up a ball from the ground and scored a touchdown. Chase then switched to offense. To win the national championship at LSU, he teamed up with Joe Burrow. Chase said that he expected to win a Super Bowl once he was reunited with the Bengals.
This is not the time.
Chase stated, "Once Joe knew I was getting together, I knew it was going to be great. So it was just earlier than I thought."
Chase was the Offensive Rookie-of-the Year with 81 receptions for 1,455 yards. He also scored 13 touchdown catches. This is the most Bengals rookie catches ever. Five 100-yard receiving games were his. Chase has already set the postseason record with 279 receiving yards. He would surpass Torry Holt's Super Bowl rookie record of 110 yards receiving Sunday if he has more than 110 yards.
A large part of his production was due to the simple act of writing down his goals.
Chase stated, "To see it has been done, it just feels like something's been lifted from your shoulders." "You understand what I'm talking about?"
Chase said that he will be staying in his hotel room until Sunday. He was relaxed speaking to reporters for 45 minutes. Surprised when he was told that the time had expired, Chase was shocked.
He laughed at the question about how he would defend himself against being a Rams cornerback Jalen Rams.
"He's got to inspect me ...,"," said Chase, a 6-footer. "I'm not playing defense. I'm playing offense."
Chase took a serious turn and said he was looking forward to facing the three-time All Pro.
Chase stated, "It's the matchup I have been waiting for." "I'm excited about this and I know that he is, as well. He is studying me. He is studying me. It should be a fun game, as we're both currently trying to find flaws. "I'm eager to go out and have fun."
The goal is so big that it doesn't even need to be written down. Go win the Super Bowl. Use his experience at LSU winning a title on college football’s largest stage to help you with your next game. Chase stated that this would make his year even more memorable.
Burrow was named the AP NFL Comeback player of the year for his second NFL season. He is still recovering from his torn ACL which ended his rookie season. This is Chase's first year in the NFL, so he views this as a unique experience.
Chase stated, "We have been playing together for many years, and we are getting better and it only gets worse from here." "We had two amazing years this year. It gets even better from here."
Chase wants to make a mark on the NFL. But he hasn’t considered what that legacy might be.
"I'm living in the moment and trying to build it as ..." Chase stated. "Man, there's so much going on in mine, and I just want this experience that I'm having to enjoy it."
