It’s been decades since the Dallas Cowboys last made it to the big game.
The Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl in 27 years, and they’re not the clear-cut favorite to put an end to that drought this season, either.
That’s why ESPN analyst Kimberley A. Martin didn’t care for Micah Parsons’ comments about Jalen Hurts.
Parsons took offense at the fact that no one seemed to criticize Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles for losing to the New York Jets the same way they criticized Dak Prescott and the Cowboys.

Martin reminded him that he was at his house watching the Eagles play in the Super Bowl in February, so as much as he should defend his teammate, there are also levels to everything.
She reminded him that wearing that star on his helmet comes with different expectations, yet the Cowboys have often fallen short of those.
Parsons is a vocal leader and he’s constantly trying to uplift his teammates, but he should also read the room every now and then.
For starters, the Eagles lost one game to one of the best defenses in the league, and they were close to beating them.
The Eagles are 5-1, not 4-2 like the Cowboys, who lost to the Arizona Cardinals before being demolished by the San Francisco 49ers.
Also, Prescott’s struggles date back two years, so it’s not like people are calling him out after just a couple of bad performances.
At the end of the day, the only way to stop people from bashing you is by winning football games, and that’s what Parsons and the Cowboys oughta do.NEXT: Analyst Reacts To Micah Parsons' Rant About Dak Prescott
