He pointed out more similarities between his Miami Super Bowl and this one.
"It's super weird. There's many things," Young said.

He says it feels like all the stars are aligning for Garoppolo to throw for six touchdowns on Sunday, just like he did a quarter century ago.
Young also complimented Garoppolo's character, calling him a "man of humility" on a run-dominant team.
