Dallas Cowboys defensive star Micah Parsons could not be reached for his weekly segment on FOX Sports’ Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe. It appears as if he ghosted the network.
Bayless spoke on air that the Undisputed team tried to contact the Cowboys player but received no response. Parsons’ management was then called but also didn’t respond. This has sent social media into meltdown as NFL fans have roasted Bayless over the defender’s no-show.
One fan posted that the linebacker wants nothing to do with the show.
“Or he wants nothing to do with clowns.”
Another fan posted and said that maybe the linebacker didn’t want to do trash television.
“Maybe he decided he ain’t doing trash television.”
Other NFL fans gave their thoughts on the second-year player’s no-show.
It remains to be seen if the 23-year-old will answer the call next Tuesday, but it does seem odd for a professional athlete to ghost a national network like that.
Parsons shining light in Cowboys Week 1 stumble
The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year started the season like he ended the last – bagging sacks. While the Cowboys were ultimately put to the sword by Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, Parsons was the only shining light.
The 23-year-old wrecked two redzone drives for Tampa as he sacked Tom Brady twice on third downs to force the Buccaneers to settle for field goals.
Parsons was one of five players to register 15 sacks in 17 games last season, joining John Abraham, Joey Bosa, Jevon Kearse and Aldon Smith.
There wasn’t much to get excited about for Cowboys fans on Sunday night, but number 11 was definitely up for the task. He finished with four tackles, two sacks, two tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits.
Rookie Tyler Smith also impressed at left tackle as his name was barely mentioned during the telecast (a surefire way to know if a tackle is doing his job).
With Dak Prescott having injured his thumb, the Cowboys’ job just got even tougher as Cooper Rush will now need to keep the team afloat.
Given their offensive struggles, Dan Quinn’s defense is going to need to take over games for Dallas and a big part of that is number 11.
