It hasn’t even been a week since the smoke cleared and the dust settled from the Philadelphia Eagles/Dallas Cowboys shootout on Christmas Eve, yet here we are in very familiar territory. Many members of the Dallas contingent are back to discussing whether or not Jalen Hurts is deserving of the NFL’s Most Valuable Player Award.

Cowboys Nation seemingly still hasn’t learned its lesson. Don’t they have a game on a short week that they’re supposed to be preparing for?

Then again, if their team shares their lack of focus, this could be a good thing. A loss by the Cowboys versus the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night would ensure Philadelphia of the NFC East’s crown, but here’s something worth noting if you missed the story. One member of the Blue and Grey appears to have seen the light.

Micah Parsons may question the legitimacy of Jalen Hurts’ MVP chances, but his teammate Trevon Diggs most certainly doesn’t.

Most of the story you’re very familiar with. Less than 14 days ago, Micah Parsons made an appearance on Von Miller’s Voncast, and rather than spend his time discussing his team’s Week 15 tussle with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he decided he’d throw a few darts as if he was already settled into Eagles Week.

Perhaps Trevor Lawerence should have been on his mind, especially seeing as how his team wound up flying to Duval County and blowing a big lead en route to an overtime loss, but here’s something for fodder in the break room or fuel for debate in the barber shops and beauty salons.

Trevon Diggs doesn’t seem to share Micah Parson’s concern over whether or not Jalen Hurts is the NFL’s MVP. As a matter of fact, he appears to be on board with a former teammate’s claim. Check out Jalen Hurts’ Instagram account when you have a moment. You’ll find a nice shot of the Eagles’ QB1 at Soldier Field and guys like Tabius, Carlos Boozer, and Trevon Diggs showing him some love in the comment section.

Diggs, a former teammate of Jalen’s at the collegiate level, replied with just three letters “MVP”… He didn’t do that for Dak Prescott, the QB1 on his own roster. He said that about Hurts. We’re talking about a Cowboy and an Eagle here. Read it and weep Cowboys fans.

Say what you will, but that’s probably a more interesting story than rehashing what Micah Parsons said (and what he may or may not have meant). The fact of the matter is Jalen Hurts is an MVP candidate, and regardless of what Cowboys Nation has to say about t, your guy, Trevon Diggs seems to have seen the light.

Now, come on, with the amount of mud that has been thrown back and forth by both sides of this rivalry, you have to admit that’s funny. What more needs to be said after that?
