Micah Parson Doesn’t Think the NFL is Very Hard

Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons is one of the best, if not the very best defensive rookie in the league. The Cowboys star is playing some unbelievable defense in his rookie year. In 13 games Parson has totaled 75 tackles, 12 sacks and he’s also forced three fumbles.

Pretty great numbers, and the dude is just a rookie. Parsons spoke about his transition into the NFL, and he’s not finding it very difficult.

Via 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.”

You can’t argue with Parsons numbers this season, they’re phenomenal. Of course he’s stayed healthy, which is really the key to being a great football player.

That being said, when you start spouting out stuff like this, you become a target.

Let’s hope his NFL road continues to not be Hard.
