Chris Long talks Tom Brady, underdog support with Good Day

- Eagles defensive end Chris Long is heading to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row after winning the game as a member of the New England Patriots last season. 

Monday night, FOX 29's Jenn Frederick was able to catch up with Chris and talk to him about what it's like to play against his former team and arguably the greatest quartback of all time in Tom Brady. 

Jenn asked Chris what it would be like to sack Brady in the big game this Sunday. 

"Everybody knows about Tom Brady, he's the greatest of all time, so I'll be lucky to get near him. He's going to be tough though, he gets the ball out quick, he knows how to take what's there," Long explained. "He's not going to sit there and extend plays and make mistakes, so it is tough to get to him, but we gotta try." 

Jenn was also able to ask Chris about his reaction to seeing so many Eagles fans, especially children, wearing their German Shephard Dog masks.

"Well, sometimes it looks a little disturbing," Long began with a chuckle, "to see these cute little kids with the German Shepherd masks on, but it's for good. Like I said, the city's really gotten behind that thing."

Long also went on to talk about the impact the dog masks made when it came to fundraising, as right tackle Lane Johnson sold t-shirts featuring both he and Long wearing the masks after their win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Johnson donated the proceeds from the t-shirt sales to the Philadelphia School District. 

"It was a fun thing to start with, but, you know we raised, Lane's charity through making those t-shirts raised $200,000 or something for Philadelphia public schools," Long said.
