Dallas Cowboys star Micah Parsons made the headlines recently, not just because of his spectacular play but also because of a statement that didn’t rub some people the right way.
The Penn State product called out New York Giants HC Brian Daboll for not taking Daniel Jones out of the game during a blowout, which made some people think he was bragging.
Unsurprisingly, that’s not what Cowboys legend Michael Irvin thought.
Instead, the legendary wide receiver stated that he saw that as a gesture of great sportsmanship, stating that they don’t want to hurt the rival quarterback, but making it clear that it’s most likely to happen if they keep him on the field.
“This is great sportsmanship and a fair warning from Micah Parsons that Dallas is coming.”

Truth be told, it’s hard to think of that statement as bragging.
Parsons has been quite outspoken since he entered the league; he’s gonna call it as he sees it, and he’ll brag if he wants to brag without sugarcoating anything.
If anything, he may have a valid point, and Daboll waited for too long before sending Tyrod Taylor on the field.
The fact of the matter is that the Cowboys’ front seven manhandled the Giants’ offensive line, and it was just a matter of time before someone got hurt.
The Cowboys got to Jones a whopping seven times, and we know how a single play can change a player’s career for good.NEXT: Darren Waller Still Dealing With Injury Ahead Of Week 2
