Eagles players are doing their best to swat away comments by Dallas Cowboys edge rusher Micah Parsons, who questioned how much Jalen Hurts has to do with Philadelphia’s success.
The pushback on his comments came in full force when it was presented to Hurts’ blindside protector, left tackle Jordan Mailata.
“I’m going to worry about the Chicago Bears this week, mate, worry about this game. Micah should worry about his game this week, too. I don’t know who the f— they’re playing, pardon my language. Just worry about who you got this week,” Mailata said.
“That’s how we do it here. I’m not going to worry about any other comments anybody said. That’s just how we focus and run about our business. We’ve got the Chicago Bears, not the Chicago Micah Parsons.”

Recently, Parsons asked on “The Voncast” with Von Miller, “When you look at the Eagles, is it Hurts or the team?” I believe it’s a little bit of both, guy,” Miller retorted. It’s a team and a system, Parsons remarked.
“I’m not trying to make no enemies,” Parsons said. “I just love the game so much. And I understand it so much that …when things are off, I just can’t hold it in. I almost got to say something.”
When asked about those comments on Wednesday, Hurts dismissed them together, saying only: “We’re worried about the Bears right now.”
Hurts is among the favorites for league MVP as he is tied with Josh Allen and Joe Burrow for second-most total touchdowns. He is also on the team with the best record as they currently stand at 12-1.
The 12-1 Eagles hold a two-game lead over the 10-3 Cowboys and won their Week 6 matchup 23-17.
The rematch is Dec. 24 in Dallas, and this time, the Cowboys will have Dak Prescott behind center.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
