Watt indeed harder Friday for his negative response to Myles Garrett winning NFL Protective Player of the Year, going so distant as to recommend that Watt could be a sore failure and not a beat five pass rusher.

“I’m not a sore loser,” Parsons told Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Friday on radio push at the Super Bowl. “I thought it ought to have went to Myles in the event that not me, and I said that freely, and it’s as straightforward as that. Myles, see at the Titans diversion alone. No offense, but T.J. played the Titans. Did you see two tight closes taking after T.J. Watt? Like they’re taking after him all over the line [like they did with Garrett]?

“People can say anything they need, but the film does not lie. His nearness is way more prevailing than T.J. Watt, and that’s fair the reality of it.”

Numerous fans and sports figures railed against Garrett beating out Watt, who driven the NFL with 19 sacks whereas Garrett tied for seventh with Parsons at 14.

“I cruel, see at the stats. The stats do not lie … I think [Watt] might have been fifth or 6th [in pass-rush win-rate and double-team rate]. Alex Highsmith I think had distant better;a much better;a higher;a stronger;an improved”>a stronger pass-rush rate and a more double-team rate than T.J. Watt in case you need to be factual. This isn’t my stuff. I’m not fair pulling this out of my cap. Like, see at the stats.”

“There’s no meat at all,” Parsons said. “One thing I despise around the NFL community and NBA community, we fair despise when somebody else wins. When I misplaced to T.J., I did not go in and say, ‘I got snubbed.’ I fair said, ‘I’m progressing to go to work.’ When I lost to Scratch Bosa the year after that, I did not say, ‘I got snubbed.’ I fair said, ‘I’m planning to work.’ The greatest botch in individuals is saying that somebody isn’t meriting. Who are you to say somebody isn’t meriting of an grant of that magnitude?”

I’m upbeat for him, and after you see at the way he influences the diversion pre-snap, on the off chance that you see at the stats that’s fine, but it’s difficult for individuals to overestimate how much he influences diversion arranging amid the week. Like they’re investing hours talking approximately the fellow, so I’ve seen individuals movement and allow him the Calvin Johnson (treatment) because it would be for a cautious conclusion. He fair changes the diversion. There are so numerous awesome players. I love T.J., I cherish Micah, and they tell you, I think they as of now have. He merits it.”

Browns protective handle Maurice Hurst, who also made the rounds on radio push on Friday, understands how T.J. feels, indeed in spite of the fact that he’s 100% on Group Garrett.

“I feel like that’s fair our competitive spirit,” Hurst told cleveland.com. “As an competitor, everybody needs to win the grants, everybody needs to have that sort of acknowledgment after you feel that you’re the finest within the alliance and I feel like that’s fair a reaction to that competitive nature that he has because he’s a amazing player.
