Micah Parsons downplays comments on Jalen Hurts: I didn't mean disrespect
by | VIEW 273
Micah Parsons described himself as "probably the most hated man in Philadelphia" following his comments on Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. Earlier this week, Parsons appeared to throw shade when asked about the Hurts MVP talk, asking "is it Hurts or the Eagles?" After seeing the response from Philadelphia, Parsons insists he meant no disrespect to their star quarterback.
“No disrespect to Hurts. I think he’s doing great this year. But you know me. I’m a defensive guy, and I said the Eagles’ defense is the team to watch. The conversation was MVP, is it just quarterback? I was just having a good conversation with Von [Miller]," Parsons told David Moore of The Dallas Morning News.
Hurts on Parsons' comments
This week, the Eagles are playing the Chicago Bears. When Hurts was asked about Parsons' comments, he refused to get into a war of words as he simply said the Eagles are focused on the Bears. "We're worried about the Bears right now," Hurts said.
Meanwhile, Eagles left tackle Jordan Mailata told Parsons to mind his own business and be focused on the Cowboys' next game. "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. 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," Mailata said The Eagles own the league-best record with 11 wins and one loss. The Cowboys are also having a great season as they have 10 wins and three losses.
On Christmas, the Eagles will be facing the Cowboys. Hurts will certainly be motivated to prove something on Christmas after Parsons' comments.
