Dallas Cowboys Linebacker Micah Parsons Gives Graphic Description of Tom Brady’s Legendary Competitiveness

Tom Brady is the GOAT for good reason.

No player in sports breathes more fire than Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. The seven-time Super Bowl champion is not only demanding of himself, but also his teammates and coaches. In fact, one of the reasons why Tom Brady is still playing in the NFL despite being 45 years old with an unmatched Hall of Fame resume is that ultra competitiveness. This separates him from the rest of the players, which makes sense considering he’s 45 years old.


So the big question is, what’s it like to play against someone who competes with that level of intensity?

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons gave a graphic description of what it’s like to line up against Tom.

“You just see his competitive nature. He has that fire inside of him. I mean, he looks to kill you,” Parsons told reporters.

“He wants to step on your throat like you’re a roach. And that’s what you look for in competitors. I think that’s why if you’re a real competitor, you look up to Tom Brady. You look up to Kobe [Bryant], that Mamba mentality. You look up to Michael Jordan, I wouldn’t ask you to do anything I wouldn’t do. You love those types of mentalities.”

Parsons and the Cowboys defense have a tough challenge in front of them trying to slow down Brady and the Bucs’ high-scoring offense.

Brady is 6-0 against the Dallas Cowboys in his career, including a 31-29 win over Dallas in last season’s Week 1 showdown.
