Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons made headlines for voicing critical opinions of the media prior to the team’s bye week.

The former Penn State linebacker disparaged the media’s coverage of quarterback Dak Prescott and the team following the Cowboys 20-17 win on the road against the Chargers.

Despite the win, Micah Parsons said Dallas receives more criticism from the media than the other three teams in the NFC East.

“Nah. I’m the face,” he said. “I’m giving them their content. They’re basically stealing my content. They’re wrong. They’re doing exactly what I say they’re going to do. Whether we win or lose, they’re going to have something to say.”

On Wednesday, Parsons again ripped the media, saying they are “big bullies” that will have “something to say” no matter if the Cowboys win or lose, as reported by Clarence Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“People think I’m shying from criticism,” Parsons said. “No. Criticism is not the problem. Just criticize everyone with the same energy. They’re just as a big a bullies as these other guys. People decide who wants to give breaks to. I wasn’t raised like that.

“I treat everybody the same. I talk about everybody the same, give everyone the same benefit of the doubt. That’s the type of real person that I stand on. A lot of these dudes ain’t real.”

Dallas returns to action on Sunday with a 1 p.m. matchup against the Rams (3-3).

The Cowboys rebounded from a 32-point loss to San Francisco with their victory over the Chargers last week.

As for Parsons’s alma mater, PSU will take on Indiana Saturday, with a noon kick scheduled for CBS.
