Love tells Parsons how the Packers beat the Cowboys in playoffs

Credit to Dallas Cowboys pass-rusher Micah Parsons. He didn’t have to go back and trudge up bad memories. 

Speaking with Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love this past week, Parson could have asked Love about anything other than the Packers’ 48-32 upset win over the Cowboys in Dallas. He could have discussed what it’s like to live in Green Bay, or how Love liked backing up future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers for the first few years of his career. Those are easy questions. 

That’s not what Parsons wanted to know, though. He wanted to know how Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur was able to scheme up what ended up being total demolition of what was one of the best defenses in the NFL during the regular season. 

“I’m not trying to talk (smack),” Love said, prefacing his answer (h/t Sports Illustrated), “but y’all linebackers — I think you had a DB playing linebacker.”
