The Dallas Cowboys’ playoff run quickly ended in the Super Wild Card round as the No. 2 seed in the NFC lost at home to the No. 7 seed Green Bay Packers. 

It was a humiliating loss for the Cowboys, who had a great shot of making it to the Super Bowl this season with the talent they have on both sides of the ball. Dallas’ defense got dismantled by the Packers as Packers QB Jordan Love threw for 272 yards and three touchdowns.

Cowboys superstar linebacker Micah Parsons finally spoke about the loss on The Edge podcast and didn’t mince words about how he felt and the road going forward.

“Completely embarrassing and unacceptable,” Parsons said (h/t Jon Machota of The Athletic). “It took me a while to even show my face in public.” 

As for the offseason, the former Penn State star mentioned that he’s hopeful Dallas “will be all in.” “I hope that we go out and get the players we’re missing because we didn’t do that this year. I hope that we challenge ourselves, become better, and become greater.”

Coincidentally, Dallas owner Jerry Jones said something similar to Parsons on Tuesday, which should be a good thing to hear if you are a Cowboys fan. 

However, fans are tired of hearing the talk and want to see this team get to the NFC Championship Game for the first time since 1995. If the Cowboys are going to go all in, it starts with head coach Mike McCarthy, but star players such as Parsons will also need to execute and play at a high level.
