Never give your opponent bulletin board material. Micah Parsons clearly never took that advice.
The Dallas Cowboys linebacker will have to wait a few months to find out if his words against Joe Burrow will come back to haunt him as the Bengals QB has much more important things to think about when the Super Bowl coming up.
Parsons put together a phenomenal rookie season with the Dallas Cowboys, but still wasn’t good enough to help the team win a single playoff game as they went down to the 49ers.
Parsons rattled off his list of the top signal-callers in the NFL right now that included Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Aaron Rodgers, and Kyler Murray as his top four quarterbacks. For the fifth slot, he decided on a tie with Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott.
When not selecting Burrow, Parsons stated he respects the second-year Bengals QB, but he’s not buying that Burrow is in the top five or six right now.
“Joe’s like extremely good, but then some games Joe would like have a day, but then some games like he’s not there,” Parsons said.
“I guess [the game against] the Bears, he threw like… I don’t know, I wouldn’t say it’s easy to get in his head because I haven’t played him and I play him next year, and I don’t want this to get to him and he come down to AT&T Stadium and throw for 400 yards and be like, ‘He said that in an interview,’ so I don’t want to say nothing crazy.”
Best believe, Burrow will have the Cowboys game circled on his calendar for the 2022 season.
Parsons’ 13 sacks ranked sixth in the NFL in 2021.
Burrow bounced back from a significant knee injury that derailed his rookie season. He finished the regular season with 4,611 passing yards, 34 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions while completing 70.4% of passes (league-high).
