Parsons said 15 is the minimum. “15 is what I wanna hit,” Parsons said. But 23 is that goal for him.
Parsons finished an unbelievable rookie campaign with 84 total tackles, 13 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Voted into the Pro Bowl, was named first-team All-Pro by the AP, and was the unanimous Defensive Rookie of the Year. He even gathered five votes for Defensive Player of the Year.
I love that he speaks his mind. Parsons wants to become one of the greatest players ever. You can see it and hear it both on and off the field.
He set the bar even higher for himself entering his season. If he stays on the field, Parsons can hit the 15-sack mark. He might come close to tackling DeMarcus Ware single-season sack record of 20.
Parsons is the type of player every single team wants. He can single-handedly make the defense better. It’s so hard to ask a player of his caliber to put his hand in the ground every play. At the same time, you can’t just ask him to drop back in coverage either. He is just that good.
Parsons is a fun player to have around. Not just as a player but as a person. He was helping others on Twitter a few weeks ago he gave away gas money to fans. He has fun talking about his madden rating and messing around with other fans on Twitter.
I hope he stays healthy and is a force on the field next season (he should be). During his tenure with Dallas, Parsons very well could break the sack record.
Parsons is a special player, glad he is a Dallas Cowboy, and I hope he is around for a long time.
