Micah Parsons has broken his silence on the criticisms surrounding the Cowboys recent performances and the rollercoaster play of quarterback Dak Prescott.
After their nail-biting victory against the Chargers on Monday night, Parsons took a stand against the perceived bias and double standards in the media’s coverage of “America’s Team.”
“I don’t condone the bashing of Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys,” Parsons firmly stated.

Prescott’s recent performance showed improvement from earlier in the season, with a solid outing against the Chargers (21-30, 272 yards, TD).
However, it’s been a reoccurring theme with Dak – He’ll string together a few good performances only to crap the bed when the stage is biggest.
Expressing solidarity with his quarterback and team, Parsons highlighted what he viewed as a discrepancy in media treatment between the Cowboys and other prominent clubs such as the Eagles and 49ers.
“I just don’t condone the bashing of Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys … Have the same energy for the Eagles. We want the same energy for everybody. Cause there’s a whole bunch of bashing when it’s Dak Prescott, but not the same when it’s the Eagles,” Parsons said on his podcast.
“Why is it that we are just scrubs and we’re nobodies that don’t deserve to be on the field and we’re just all talk. But there’s a hundred excuses for these other teams.”
“I’m tired of people trashing my quarterback. I’m tired of people trashing my team and that’s why I had nothing to say to the media this week.

Parsons pointed out specific instances of media bias, referencing FOX Sports’ Joy Taylor and Emmanuel Acho for their recent comments that he perceived as disparaging toward the Cowboys.

Parsons concluded with a strong message, saying: “If y’all just want to hate Cowboys nation, just say y’all hate Cowboys nation … But don’t sit here and throw shade on us. Keep the same energy for everybody.”
Currently sitting with a 4-2 record, all of Dallas’ goals are still within reach.
As one of the leaders on the team, you have to admire Parsons protecting his quarterback and team.
Although, it’s no secret that “America’s Team” brings the pressure on themselves. That’s always been the case under Jerry Jones – and it always will be.
Perhaps it’s best for Parsons to just block out the outside noise and focus on getting better.
What is your take on the Cowboys?
Are they legitimate Super Bowl contenders this season?
Is there a double-standard surrounding Dallas? … If so, is it fair or unfair???
