Daniel Patrick Addresses Micah Parsons’ Frustration and Defensive Strategies After Dominant Cowboys Win…

Dan Quinn addresses Micah Parsons’ frustration after the Dallas Cowboys’ decisive 49-17 victory against the New York Giants.

Parsons, a standout edge rusher, expressed his feelings on social media, declaring his speechlessness and responding to a post by Sam Williams with a plea to “Free me then.” This reaction followed a game in which Parsons did not register a tackle or sack and swiftly left the postgame media availability.

Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn acknowledged Parsons’ competitive nature, stating that the linebacker’s desire to have a greater impact on the game fueled his emotions.

Quinn emphasized that such frustration is common among competitors who always seek to make a significant contribution. Despite Parsons coming off a stellar performance in Philadelphia with nine tackles and 1.5 sacks, the Giants focused on neutralizing him, resulting in his first game of the season without a tackle or sack.

Quinn empathized with Parsons, acknowledging the difficulty of being restrained when one’s capabilities are exceptional. He highlighted the challenge of opponents actively working to prevent Parsons from influencing the game and recognized that dealing with such situations can vary in difficulty. Quinn suggested that the game against the Giants was one of those instances where frustration might have been harder to handle.

Despite the defensive focus on Parsons, he found success in coverage during 10 snaps as a true linebacker. Quinn cited a notable play where Parsons intercepted an opening across the middle during a Jayron Kearse blitz, preventing Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito from making a throw on third down.

Quinn explained the strategic advantage of occasionally having Parsons drop into coverage to divert attention and protection away from him, emphasizing that while not always easy, it is ultimately in the best interest of the team.
