Although Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers haven’t lived up to their expectations, Micah Parsons still respects what the four-time MVP brings to the table.
Parsons, who was speaking to reporters four days before the Cowboys game against the Packers at Lambeau field, said that he was “super excited” about facing Rodgers for his first time in his professional career.
“He can make any throw. He’ll scramble. He moves the pockets,” Parsons said, via Yahoo’s Jori Epstein. You talk about the best of the best, he’s right up there with them.
“I know he’s going to make me a better player.”

Rodgers just came off a terrible three-interception performance last week against the Detroit Lions. Rodgers has seven interceptions so far this season, which is his highest single-year total since 2016.
The Packers average 17.1 points per match, which is 27th best in the league. They have also lost five consecutive games. All indications point to a difficult afternoon against Dallas’ strong defense.
It’s foolish to count Rodgers out. Parsons appears to be the one taking the right approach going into this weekend’s match.
The Cowboys vs. Packers will begin at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday on FOX
