Normally, we’d never venture into attempting to make guesses about what another man is thinking. More often than not, we’d let a man speak for himself. We’re going to break that rule here, and we’re going to do so for a very specific reason. He’d probably never admit to this publicly, but you aren’t going to convince us that Micah Parsons doesn’t wish he was a member of this Philadelphia Eagles organization.

We rewind the tape just two years to the 2021 NFL Draft. Philly was on the clock with the tenth overall selection. Most of us were certain that DeVonta Smith would be the choice, but there was a thought in the back of all of our minds that, with quarterback Justin Fields and linebacker Micah Parsons also on the board, the Birds still might throw us a curveball.

We all know how things turned out. Philadelphia indeed took DeVonta. The Chicago Bears landed Fields, and the so-called ‘America’s Team’, those disgusting Dallas Cowboys landed Micah two spots after DeVonta’s addition at 12.

Have you been paying attention to Micah since that happened? Sure, in the end, each team’s selection turned out to be exactly what they needed. Micah’s addition has worked out well for Dallas, but the former Penn State star always seems to have his eyes on what the Birds are doing. Don’t look now, but he’s at it again.

Micah Parson’s mini-tantrum following the announcement of each of the Eagles’ first two picks in the 2023 NFL Draft is must-see television.

It doesn’t get any better than seeing the Eagles win and the New York Giants or Dallas Cowboys suffer as a result. We’ve seen Micah Parson question the validity of Jalen Hurts’ ascension after Philly got off to a torrid start last season. We have seen Micah dedicate large amounts of his free time to giving us his takes on what the Birds are doing.

Recently, while watching the first round of the NFL Draft he came within inches of having a mini-tantrum, and if we’re being honest, we couldn’t be any happier.

A.J. Brown is right. Do the right thing when contract time comes around Micah. Free yourself from this burden. Everyone knows Philly is where you want to be. It’s obvious. Hey, they say you can never have too many pass rushers, right? We’ll let Howie Roseman work out the financial details.
