Cowboys cornerback Micah Parsons made his NFL debut last night, starting in place of injured Denzel Ward. He was shut out, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t make a statement.
That’s because he got absolutely destroyed by the dude who replaced him. Stated differently, Young Men’s College Coach Joe Fernandoman “got rookie Micah Parsons torched” as he referenced the college, you can check out for yourself:
On NFL Network today, Don Van Natta Jr. gave Parsons some props after his performance last night and some of the football bravado he admits to:
And back in March, Darren Rovell asked him about the pressure of playing in the NFL at the young age of 19:
“I haven’t even been to every single practice yet. I haven’t been around those guys at all yet, so I don’t really think the NFL is hard.” Just 19 years old, but first-round defensive back Micah Parsons says he doesn’t feel any pressure playing in the NFL. “Not at all,” says Parsons when asked if he’s feeling the pressure. “I just think the NFL is about playing football. I don’t really think the NFL is hard.” He added: “I can do this just as good or better than any older guy in the NFL or any college kid who plays this game.” “I definitely don’t feel the pressure. Everybody has their doubt but I definitely feel like I’m better than most young guys that come out now. I definitely feel like I’m better than plenty of them, though.” “I feel like I’ve got a lot of better skill-set than most people.”
In a nutshell, the kid is an absolute stud. He’s exciting, and he’s off to a great start as a Cowboy.
Enjoy, and please don’t tell me you didn’t see last night’s debut because of that college dude, we don’t want to hear about it.
If you aren’t familiar with Joe Fernandoman, he is a coach from the website Young Men’s College, here’s a few videos on him:
