    1. Parsons was solid in coverage. Especially considering his competition. He will get better.

    2. Parsons was dominant in run defense.

    3. Parsons had a couple of pressures on pass rushes. That would have been hits or sacks if it weren’t Brady getting rid of the ball laser quick.

    Parsons is going to be just fine.

    Notice those 1st 2 catches, 2 defenders 1 gronk and a heck of a good pass. Gronk's been doing this a long time. Can't fault a rookie for getting beat even when he had safety or other help.

    Agreed.

    Gronk and Brady are going to be first ballot hall of famers.

    they’re going to beat guys. Even when the defender plays well.

    That is how an elite duo functions. We are not on that level

    perhaps he is. but he is a rookie LB, having missed a year of college football. to expect him to come in and know how to play in coverage against Brady, Gronk and one of the best offenses in the league in his very first NFL game...that's the wrong expectations....lets see where he is 5, 6, 8, 12 games from now...look for improvements....you expected dominance against two HOFers....that's not fair to Parsons

    He looked pretty good for a guy who took a year off.

    I wonder why the Browns didnt cover Kelce, I mean everyone knew he was getting the ball.
    I wonder why the Ravens werent covering Waller... I mean maybe after target 15 in the 1st half they could figure it out???

    HOF players are HOF for a reason. You think teams didnt know they needed to stop Jerry Rice? You dont think teams didnt design their entire defense around stopping Jerry Rice??? and the game would end and they would look up and see he had 10 catches, 175 yards and 2 Tds. Damn, if only they tried harder to stop Rice.....smh

    Yup.

    hard to believe too.

    He would have been an instant upgrade at RT.

    It’s not that they made the play. It’s that he’s stumbling around and doesn’t look natural at all trying to cover.

    Which is fine if he can hit the QB but he has to do something when QBs drop back to throw.


    He has the upside to do whatever he wants with his speed and athleticism but for now Micah Parsons is just an athlete that hopefully develops into something more then just a linebacker.

    Dallas passed on a franchise tackle. Hopefully it works out for us.

    I am usually a defender of posts and OPs. Everyone can have an opinion. That said this guy writes the dumbest things. Always.

    maybe. Slater hasn't accomplished much yet either and will have growing pains as well. I agree though there were a few plays that Parsons looked lost and bit on the play fake but Brady is a master Ill give him a pass game 1. I didn't expect it to be flawless especially against the Goat

    Parsons is just so athletic that it would be shocking if he isn’t eventually good at covering.


    He should’ve had a pick 6 to win us the game. Imagine the vibe right now had he made a fairly easy read and pick.

    :lmao2:

    That's pretty funny - a bust pick because he struggled covering a HoF TE in his first game.

    Besides, I want Parsons playing close to the LOS. I want him chasing QBs and making tackles behind the LOS. Every time he goes out in coverage it is a negative for Dallas's front line defense.

    " An argument can be made that he was the Cowboys' best defender in the season opener against Tampa Bay. He had seven tackles and a pass deflection and did not look out of place when lining up in different positions. There were a couple welcome-to-the-NFL moments, like when Tom Brady threaded a pass to Rob Gronkowski despite sticky coverage. All in all it was a solid debut for Parsons, and the expectations will only continue to grow. -- Todd Archer

    This is about as well worded (and as nice) as it can be put.
