Stephon Gilmore isn't THAT GUY any more.

Yeah, we said it! Again, you have to give credit where it's due. Stephon Gilmore is a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year (2019), a two-time First-Team All-Pro (2018, 2019), a five-time
Pro Bowler (2016, 2018–2021), and a member of the New England Patriots All-2010s Team, but he's also living more off of his reputation now than anything we have seen from him recently.

Gilmore has probably already punched his ticket to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as well. He's a deserving candidate, but he'll also turn 33 years old at the beginning of the coming NFL regular season.

He hasn't played a full season since winning that NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. He has played 14 games in the past two seasons. At this stage of his career, it's hard to fathom he'll be able to keep up with A.J. Brown or DeVonta Smith for four quarters. Again, Slay and Bradberry are a better duo than Diggs and Gilmore.

Micah Parsons wants to be a Philadelphia Eagle.

Okay, so this probably doesn't have anything to do with his talent on the football field or his tendency to wreck offensive game plans. We just thought we'd throw this one in there to irritate the Cowboys' contingent.

Micah Parsons wants to be a Philadelphia Eagle. We all know it, but if you're looking for some Xs and Os here, we can provide that as well.

If we look at Micah Parsons and Haason Reddick as two players on these rosters that we would compare, everyone with an opinion that we respect would tell you Reddick is the better player. How's this for some added fuel to the fire? When history is done being written, something tells us that Nolan Smith will be better than Parsons as well. Mark our words.
