The Dallas Cowboys have had a fantastic start to their 2022 NFL season.
They have won four straight games despite Dak Prescott‘s thumb injury.
Cooper Rush has done enough to lead Dallas victories, and their defense has been suffocating throughout their winning streak.
Without question, second-year player Micah Parsons is already the leader of this dominating squad.
But aside from finding ways to keep their good fortunes going, the former Penn State standout is also keeping an eye on what’s happening around the league.
In particular, he shared his take on the controversial roughing the passer calls in Week 5.
The nfl is terrible!!! Change the rules or just make the league 7 on 7!!

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Grady Jarrett was called for that violation during their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
That call was critical because it came on a third-and-five.
Had it not been called, the Falcons would have forced the Buccaneers on a three-and-out and have time to go for the victory.
Instead, the penalty prolonged Tampa Bay’s drive and ended the game via a Leonard Fournett run and a Mike Evans reception.
Luckily for the Chiefs, they returned from a 17-point deficit to win by one, 30-29.
The Rule Must Be Discussed
The NFL’s Competition Committee will look closely at the grievances of Parsons and other players who argue that the plays made by Jarrett and Jones were clean.
But then again, penalties remain subjective in the eyes of game officials.
They will still decide if the tackles made on quarterbacks are excessive.
Though more specific parameters can be defined, calls are still at the official’s discretion.
