The Angels – Let’s start with the facts here. Sure, technically they are opinions, but next he wants to find someone to argue with either of the two statements.
The Cowboys have the best defense in the NFL.
Micah Parsons is the best defensive player in the NFL.
The first one seems easy. No other team in the league has been able to play better week after week, let alone the starting quarterback down on his four-game winning streak. Yeah, relying on defense is one thing, but this one is incredibly borderline.
They gave the Buccaneers 19 points in Week 1. But since then it’s been 17, 16, 10 and now 10. 10 points for the Rams, who have Matthew Stafford, Cooper Cup and Sean McVay. A week with the cowboys in town.
and they tried. But the Cowboys’ defense is playing on another level now.
No, it’s not a solo show over there, but Parsons is definitely the leader of this group. He’s the clear MVP of this defense, which is his best in the NFL.
So I think you can call him the best defender in football right now.
Aaron Donald, who definitely hasn’t lost a step, is definitely not to be underestimated.
In a chat with right guard Zach Martin, he said, “99 is unbelievable,” referring to Donald of course.
This is what’s crazy about Donald. His versatility makes him the best player in the NFL for years as he has the ability to charge from all four of his positions on the line. And on Sundays, they moved him around to find mismatches – and often it was against rookie left tackle Tyler Smith.
But the crazy part is… Parsons is even more versatile. He can rush from all his four spots on the line and can also play linebacker.linebacker, his natural position.
Parsons refers to himself as “The Lion”, who was clearly injured on this day. He survived a left groin injury throughout the second half and came out of the game a little more than usual. But, as he explained, “Sometimes I had to step away from my pure heart.”
Parsons had a bad foot, but still got two sacks and a forced fumble.
But in reality, Parsons’ play goes much deeper than just statistics. If you’re really looking at him on every play, why not, I don’t know at this point, but you can clearly see how often he changes from snap to snap. side-steps, he steps up into the pocket, or a running back who chips Parsons off the edge before going on the pass, but the quarterback never gets there anyway because he’s rushing.
And the biggest thing you’ll see is Parsons battling two or three defenders while DeMarcus Lawrence or Dorrance Armstrong head home. The rookie had the best match of his young career.
But it all starts and ends with Parsons. He’s the one who doesn’t just line up in another place, he rules from there.
After the match, I asked Parsons how it felt to play a match like this against Donald.
“Yeah, I think it’s a fight. You want to be the best rusher. There’s only one best rusher in the league,” Parsons said of Donald. No matter what, no matter how respectful I am, I want to be the best player in this league.Push me, I’m climbing.”
Even better, Mika. You don’t have to go out and say you’re better. Keep “pushing” and “climbing” and let others say what seems pretty obvious right now.
Myka Parsons is the best defensive player in football. And he leads the best defense as well.
