Even Micah Parsons knows refs are robbing Kayvon Thibodeaux of calls

How can this keep going on? Throughout his rookie season, NY Giants pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux can’t catch a break. Time and time again, Thibodeaux is assaulted in the trenches and has been held on countless plays. Yet, we never see the officials throw a flag on the field in his favor. It’s something that no question has Thibodeaux frustrated.

In the win over the Vikings, Thibodeaux was literally assaulted in the trenches by Vikings offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw on a Kirk Cousins touchdown pass. When Thibodeaux got up on his feet, he couldn’t believe holding wasn’t called.

Neither could Cowboys star Micah Parsons, who made it clear on Twitter that he thinks the refs are screwing Thibodeaux over.

Darrisaw’s play on Thibodeaux was textbook holding, yet nothing was called and Cousins was able to hit K.J. Osborn for the clutch score. This brought the Vikings within striking distance of the Giants, but thankfully New York was able to come out on top in the end, otherwise people all over New York would be more furious than they already are.

This was one of three embarrassing calls from the refs in the Giants win, as people also haven’t stopped talking about the Andrew Thomas false start and the absurd roughing the passer call against All-Pro defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence. All in all, it was a terrible day for the team in stripes.

With Thibodeaux in particular, this is nothing new for him. The rookie can’t buy a call and each blown call is worse than the one before. How in the heck can the poor kid keep having to go through this on a weekly basis?

Thibodeaux will want to put on a show vs. the Eagles on Saturday, but he’s probably got the lack of calls coming his way in the back of his mind. Let’s hope the officials can finally catch the blatant holds that are being performed on him. This nonsense must end soon.
