Micah Parsons is confused why Daniel Jones wasn’t pulled for his own protection from the Giants’ season-opening loss to the Cowboys.
With Parsons leading the charge, Dallas sacked Jones seven times and constantly pressured the New York quarterback in Sunday night’s 40-0 blowout.
But despite the lopsided score and their inability to handle the Cowboys’ pass rush, the Giants kept Jones in the game until their final possession — a decision that drew widespread criticism.
“It’s called protecting your guy — something I thought the Giants should have done,” Parsons said Tuesday on his “The Edge with Micah Parsons” podcast. “I don’t think Daniel Jones should have been in that game in the fourth quarter.
“I thought they should have protected him and pulled him out. Barring injury, their season would be over without Daniel Jones.”
