Dallas Cowboys rookie Micah Parsons has developed quite the propensity for attention grabbing quotes.
This weekend, the rookie linebacker and his squad will go up against the San Francisco 49ers. When asked about the Niners’ particular brand of “bully ball” on Wednesday, Parsons gave one of his classic headline inducing soundbites.
“I’m from Harrisburg where the bullies get bullied. There’s a bully in every gym… At one point, it’s going to take somebody to stand up and fight. I ain’t ever back down from a challenge,” he said, per Cowboys insider Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Others feel Parsons may be a little too confident as he prepares to go up against an offensive line led by nine-time Pro Bowler Trent Williams.
“I like Parsons, but playoffs are different. Regular season they run plays away from you. Playoffs they run it right at you!” one fan wrote.
“Man…it would be a crying shame if @TrentW71 got a hold of this,” another said.
