Earlier this week, Dallas Cowboys star linebacker Micah Parsons made some controversial comments about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, suggesting that the MVP-contending quarterback might only be having a dominant season because of his talented team. And now one Eagles player has a message for Parsons.
Eagles left tackle Jordan Mailata thinks that Micah Parsons should spend more time worrying about the team he’s facing this week.
“I’m going to worry about the Chicago Bears this week, mate, worry about this game. Micah should worry about his game this week, too. I don’t know who the f— they’re playing, pardon my language. Just worry about who you got this week,” Mailata said, according to Pro Football Talk. “That’s how we do it here. I’m not going to worry about any other comments anybody said. That’s just how we focus and run about our business. We’ve got the Chicago Bears, not the Chicago Micah Parsons.”
The Cowboys play the Jacksonville Jaguars this week. However, the Eagles and the Cowboys are less than two weeks away from a Christmas Eve showdown between the two NFC powerhouses. And after Parsons’ comments about Hurts and Mailata’s response, it’s safe to say that this game just got even more interesting.
