Micah Parsons has been calling out the media for discriminating against the Dallas Cowboys. The linebacker for America’s team believes that other teams do not get half the hate and criticism when they suffer a loss when compared to the Cowboys. 

He went on to call out Emmanuel Acho of Fox Sports for making excuses for the San Francisco 49ers when they lost due to a missed field goal against the Cleveland Browns. Acho stated that the San Francisco 49ers were missing Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey, which had a huge impact on turning the game in favor of Cleveland.

Micah Parsons believes that the analyst was making excuses for the 49ers and called him out for that. Emmanuel Acho decided to respond and had this to say,“Hold on now, Micah; congrats on the dub yesterday; however, the 49ers were without McCaffrey and Deebo in the middle of the game; we know Nick Chubb is not returning this season, so I no longer factored him on the Cleveland Browns roster because he is actually not on the roster.”

Acho was responding to Parsons’s statement that he had predicted this Cleveland Browns defense was legit.

Emmanuel Acho believes there is a huge difference between the losses of the 49ers and the Cowboys

Parsons stated that a lot of people had counted out the Browns’ defense and had made excuses for Cleveland that they were heading into the game against the 49ers without Nick Chubb and Deshaun Watson.

Acho said, “Deshaun, he is not playing as great as we expect Deshaun to play this year, so has Deshaun been present? I don’t know if that’s as big a deal as Deebo Samuel’s absence, All-Pro, hard to do, or Christian McCaffrey’s absence, hard to do.” Acho’s point is that Deshaun Watson has not had the impact that he was expected to have as a part of the Browns roster. When one compares CMac and Deebo’s impact on the 49ers to that of Watson, it is not even close.

Acho concludes by stating that the 49ers almost won the game if not for a missed FG. “I’m not mad at the 49ers for losing because they still won the game if not for a 41-yard field goal, sir.” The 49ers lost because of bad luck. That field goal could have turned the tables in their favor, but it did not go that way.

Micah Parsons was mad that when his team loses, there is just hate, but when other teams lose, there are a hundred excuses as to why that happened. However, remember that the Cowboys did not lose to the 49ers or the Arizona Cardinals.

They got blown out by them; both losses saw the Cowboys lose by double-digit scores, which did not happen with the 49ers. So while the Cowboys do get hated and critiqued when they lose a game, it is not for nothing; it is not because the media hates them. It is because they talk a big game and go on to lose by 12 points to the Arizona Cardinals, who have been terrible this year. 

The game against San Francisco was a nightmare for Dak Prescott, who ended up throwing three interceptions. The Cowboys will face the Los Angeles Rams on the 29th of October and hope to have beaten both LA teams back to back.
