Micah Parsons is not afraid of anyone

Justin Fields (QB, Bears) runs fast? Jalen Hurts (QB, Eagles) too? Not really a problem for Micah Parsons.

Faster than Fields, really?

” Yes. And he knows it. We raced several times. We even compared our 40-yard times when he came out of college, and I beat him. There wasn’t even a match. »

Parsons is absolutely right. He ran 40 yards in 4.39 seconds at the Combine. Fields’ time on his Pro Day was 4.44.

The main cuts of the day:

Not happy ? Just go talk to Aaron Rodgers

The soap opera Aaron Rodgers becomes a daily soap. On Tuesday, the quarterback explained that players who made mistakes should have less playing time. What upset teammates?

“If any of these guys have a problem with it, I’m here, and I’d love to discuss it,” Rodgers told reporters Wednesday. “I like these conversations. I like these kinds of conflicts because I know that the resolution will make us a better group, a better friendship, a better cohesion on the ground. But nobody came to me to say, “I have a problem with what you said. “I think everyone knows, including Matt (LaFleur), that everything has to be a little bit better, progress a little bit. »

So just go and confront the franchise quarterback, and everything will be better.

And there is no question of calming things down.

“I don’t understand why people have a problem with things that are sincere. I say things as I see them. People think I shouldn’t say that in public. But I’m doing what I think is in the best interest of our guys, and I’ve tried a lot of different things in terms of leadership this year, and I was just giving my personal opinion on the situation. I did not give names. I think we all have to focus on the details, including me. »

Tua Tagovailoa does not spare

Against the Steelers on Sunday, Tua Tagovailoa (QB, Dolphins) preferred to go into contact with the defender rather than sliding on the ground, in order to get the first attempt. If this action is commendable and should please his teammates, it remains very risky for a quarterback who has already missed two games this season due to injury. At a press conference this Wednesday, Tagovailoa returned to this situation which did not please everyone.

“My coaches told me, ‘we don’t want you to do this anymore. I understand them, I’m coming back from a concussion. But for me, that’s football. If I see that the first attempt is reachable, I will do everything to get it. I want to be able to be able to continue making games that will move the chains and help the team. I’ll tell you, I should slide, protect myself. But instinctively, I don’t know… It’s a weird competitive feeling. »

While it’s entirely commendable to see Tagovailoa ready to do anything to help his team, he’d better think about taking care of his body, if he doesn’t want to end his career early.

Dan Campbell hopes to see Jameson Williams this season

By selecting Jameson Williams (WR) in the first round of the draft, the Lions knew that they would have to be patient, knowing that the rookie is treating a rupture of the cruciate ligaments, suffered last January. In a press conference, Dan Campbell was asked if Williams was going to spend the whole season on the injured list.

“No, there is always hope. We have the feeling that we will recover it before the end of the season. It’s hard to say when. I would say not before next month, but I have a feeling it will be before the end of the year. »

Oli Udoh’s lawyer denies accusations against his client

Without too much surprise, Brian Bieber (no relation, only son) the lawyer ofOli Udoh (OG, Vikings) defends his client. Accused of having followed a woman into the toilet without her consent, the player is currently being prosecuted for having resisted without violence during his arrest by the police. Asked by PFT, his lawyer wanted to make things clear, his client is innocent.

“Oli has never followed a woman into the bathroom and has never stopped a woman from going where she wants. In fact, the woman approached Oli that night and they had a cordial conversation that ended with an exchange of phone numbers. She has since come back to us to confirm that these allegations are completely false. Oli has committed no crime under Florida law and we hope for a speedy resolution to this case, in which he should never have been arrested. »

Let the police do their job. As soon as we have more information, believe that you will be the first informed.

Taylor Heinicke (Commanders) celebrated

Wednesday, Taylor Heinicke (QB, Commanders) showed off his new Jordans to the press. Why ? Because he beat the Packers. And when he beats a team, the quarterback celebrates it by buying himself a pair of Jordans in the colors of his defeated enemy.
