Micah Parsons just wants to be protected the same way quarterbacks as Tom Brady does.
The Dallas Cowboys defensive end had a bone to pick with NFL refs after he took to Twitter showing a picture of him being held by a Los Angeles Rams offensive lineman with a message.
“We won’t call this but we’ll call a roughing the passer lol! Can we focus in and protect defensive players?”
During the game, teammate, Dante Fowler Jr., got called for roughing the passer on Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Fowler went high and basically just pushed Stafford to the ground less than a second after he released the ball. He didn’t even hit him around the head, but the flag still flew and moved the Rams’ offense up 15 yards.
Parson could also be speaking about Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady received a terrible roughing penalty that sealed a win against the Atlanta Falcons, who were threatening late in the game at Raymond James Stadium.
Defensive lineman Grady Jarrett got into the Bucs’ backfield and sacked Brady, twisting him down to the turf, but he got flagged. A few players later, Brady found wide receiver Mike Evans for another first down that iced the win.
It was easily the worst call of the season.
