Micah Parsons calls for NFL rule change after Thibodeau injury

Cowboys star Micah Parsons calls NFL over Giants rookie Kevon Thibodeau on Sunday night ‘s preseason.

The second-year linebacker took issue with a block in the game by Bengals tight end Thaddeus Moss that led to a defensive exit in the second quarter. Thibodeau, the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s draft, was later diagnosed with an MCL sprain and is expected to miss up to four weeks.

Parsons, the defending rookie year, enthusiastically tweeted about the show.

“I don’t understand why the NFL still allows cutting!! We grew up –f—— men! Come and play bro! I hate to see that guy– Man!”

While Parsons clearly believes that the block and others like it should be completely illegal, his views may not be shared by other prominent figures, namely the Giants Team coach Brian Dabor. After the news of Thibodeau’s diagnosis became public, Dabol told reporters that he felt the play was in line with the rules after being asked if Moss’ block was dirty.

“That’s the rule,” Dabor said. “You know, if they can…if they allow it, you know we can do it too, tight ends and full-backs back in the scrimmage, so we have to play well. It’s a tough limit, but regardless of the rules What, those are the rules.”

The NFL’s low-restriction rules have been the subject of debate for decades, most recently this past year. Last May, the league expanded its ban on blocking below the waist to include “blocking in a scrimmage when an offensive and defensive player exceeds 5 yards on either side of the line of scrimmage and more than 2 yards beyond any offensive tackle.” “
