There isn’t much that Dallas Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons is afraid of. He wasn’t scared to take on the best in the league as a rookie. He isn’t afraid to take on a teammate or opponent in any type of challenge. And, apparently, he isn’t afraid to ask Rich Eisen to take over his show.
Last week, Parsons paid a visit to Rich Eisen to be on his show/podcast in person. They talked about his mindset as an athlete, his great relationship with Dan Quinn, and many other things. At one point in the interview, Parsons said he wanted to sit at Eisen’s desk. Eisen agreed and had the rookie take over his “What’s More Likely” game where Eisen usually answers questions about things set to happen in the world of sports.
The Cowboy brought his Pizza Hut pizza (if you have seen anything about the young player lately you know he’s obsessed with his Pizza Hut sponsorship) over to Eisen’s desk and went for it. Both men answered all of the questions, so Parsons makes sure to ask the co-hosts to save all the answers so that they can look back on them… a true competitor.
Even though he attended a Dallas Mavericks game during the season, the Penn State product said he’s a Golden State Warriors fan, so he unsurprisingly picked the Warriors to come out on top on the West over the Arizona Suns. You can see watch the full segment in the Tweet below.
Cowboys Micah Parsons takes over Rich Eisen’s desk to host the show and answers questions about the NBA and NFL on the “What’s More Likely?” segment. He talks about Tom Brady, Kyler Murray, and Dallas’s future
The rookie also second-handedly threw shots at the Los Angeles Lakers. When asked if James Harden would get a win in his debut with the 76ers, Parsons sided with Harden saying that he had a lot to prove and he will. Eisen asked Parsons how many chances Harden gets to prove himself, and Parsons said that he had no help at previous teams. Eisen asked about Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook in Houston. The Cowboy said, “That’s it? Do you see what’s happening in LA right now?”
So the 22-year-old asked Eisen if he was just going to go against him for every answer. Eisen hilariously replied that since the Cowboy is trying to do good TV (by taking over at his desk), he should know that that’s what makes good TV. Then, the two switched to NFL topics. According to Parsons, Tom Brady is “done done” with the NFL and is more likely to join a broadcast team than unretiring. Eisen said no way and the two laughed about their constant conflicting answers.
The next question was about Kyler Murray’s future with the Arizona Cardinals. Parsons has already admitted in the past how much he respects Murray and how he longs to one day be able to sack the elusive QB. Parsons said there is “no way in their right minds” the Cardinals can let a “Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback” walk away.
The last question was whether Parsons would break the single-season sack record or the Cowboys would win the Super Bowl. Parsons took a Cowboys championship, and Eisen (who refused to look Parsons in the eye during his answer) took the other option. The rookie, to no shock, said “that’s okay, they’re both likely.” The confidence never stops with this Cowboy.
