Micah Parsons took a shot at Jalen Hurts being a system QB on Von Miller’s podcast a couple weeks back. After the game it looked like he tried to clarify his comments to Jordan Mailata:
A couple of weeks ago, the media took a small portion of @MicahhParsons11 praising the #Eagles team out of context and made it seem like he was taking a shot at @JalenHurts being the 2022 MVP.

Dov Kleiman is a great follow on Twitter, but I’m not seeing an apology or a clarification here. Maybe the inside the NFL episode tonight will show more, but doesn’t it still sound like he’s giving credit to the OLine and defense and not Jalen?
