Cowboys Rookie Micah Parsons Doesn’t Think the NFL is Hard

SJ - December 15, 2021

Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons is having an incredible first year in the NFL.  Through his first 13 games he has 75 tackles, 12 sacks and three forced fumbles.

That sounds like the stats of a guy who isn't having a hard time transitioning to the NFL.  In fact Parsons admitted it, he doesn't think the NFL is hard.

From Sports Illustrated:

“Yeah, for sure,” he said. “I don’t really think the NFL is hard. I think they got some really great players around here. But I just think it’s a bunch of players that work really hard, and I think it rubs off whenever you play guys like La’el [Collins in practice]. When I’m going against La’el and I’m challenging him every down, saying, What could I do there? How can I make this better? Or I’m going against Zack [Martin], and I’m just getting those opportunities, it really just makes those guys [on other teams] not look as good.”

It's hard to argue with Parsons when you see his insane numbers.  I wouldn't get too cocky though.  This sounds like something that is said before a devastating injury ends a guy's season.

I'm not rooting for that, I'm just pointing out that when you stop being humble the game finds a way to humble you.
