Micah Parsons Thinks TJ Watt Sucks
Okay… maybe sucks isn’t the right word. Let’s go with overrated instead. Either way, you’re here for the Micah Parsons trash-talking session so let’s get right to it. It’s safe to say that the Cowboys pass rusher isn’t impressed by TJ Watt.
“I’m not a sore loser,” Parsons told Zach Gelb of CBS Sports. “I thought it should have went to Myles if not me, and I said that publicly, and it’s as simple as that. Myles, look at the Titans game alone. No offense, but T.J. played the Titans. Did you see two tight ends following T.J. Watt? Like they’re following him all across the line [like they did with Garrett]?
“People can say whatever they want, but the film does not lie. His presence is way more dominant than T.J. Watt, and that’s just the reality of it.”
“If you’re talking about best pure pass rusher, I would say if you look my win rate, I was the best one this year, so it would be me [No. 1],” Parsons said. “Then, I would say Myles. Then, I would say Maxx [Crosby]. Then, I would say Nick Bosa.
“I mean, look at the stats. The stats don’t lie. . . . I think [Watt] might have been fifth or sixth [in pass rush win rate and double team rate]. Alex Highsmith I think had a better pass rush rate and a more double team rate than T.J. Watt if you want to be statistical. This isn’t my stuff. I’m not just pulling this out of my hat. Like, look at the stats.”
According to Parsons, Alex Highsmith might be better than TJ Watt…
Feel free to comment below. Was Parsons being unreasonable or does he have a point? I’ll just leave this here to close out the post.
