DeCamara: 'Micah Parsons might be best defensive player since Lawrence Taylor'


Micah Parsons continues to dominate and, to the dismay of Eagles fans, is starting to cement himself as one of the best defensive players in the history of the NFL.

Parsons comment begins at 26:13 mark

"I thought of something watching the game yesterday regarding Micah Parsons that I had never thought I'd get to the point of with him or—I don't know," Joe DeCamara said on Monday's 94WIP Morning Show. "I thought this weekend, for the first time I thought, he might be or become the best defensive player since Lawrence Taylor in pro football."

Parsons had 2.0 sacks, 3 TFL, 4 QB hits, 1 PD, 1 FF, and 1 FR in Sunday's 30-10 Cowboys win over the Jets. Already, the 24-year-old Harrisburg native has 3.0 sacks and 6 QB hits in two games this season.

"Let me put into context what that means," DeCamara continued. "That means he'd be above—and I'm not saying he's definitively there yet, but he's rocking and rolling man. We're talking Reggie [White], we're talking Ray Lewis, we're talking Deion Sanders. When you talk about the most impactful defensive players in pro football over the last 40 years. This guy is a freakin' game wrecker!

"Watching this guy play, there's a chance he's the best since Lawrence Taylor. Rod Woodson, Charles Woodson, Brian Dawkins, Troy Polamalu, Ed Reed. All of them."

Parsons was the 12th overall pick of the Cowboys out of Penn State in 2021 and recorded 13.0 and 13.5 sacks, respectively, in his first two NFL seasons earning first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors in both campaigns.
