There is some in-house drama with the Dallas Cowboys right now, and a former legend of the Pittsburgh Steelers is calling it out. 

In case you missed it, Cowboys safety Malik Hooker called out defensive stalwart Micah Parsons for seemingly focusing more on his podcast rather than his work on the field: 

"My advice for Micah would be just make sure we're alright and being where you're feet are," Hooker said. "Because if we're at work and, you know, the run game's terrible but you're doing a podcast every week and you know the run game is terrible then what are you really caring about? Are you caring about the crowd that was watching the podcast or are you caring about the success of our team and the Super Bowl that we're trying to reach?"

Parsons immediately fired back at Hooker, saying he should have called him personally rather than called him out publicly: 

"Just wish you said this to me but instead on some podcast! And you got my number family! @MalikHooker24 and you my locker mate!" Parsons tweeted. "So you coulda said this any day! And you do realize I shoot the podcast on our off day! I why ain't we talking about everyone preparations and focus."

Enter Plaxico Burress, who played five season for the Steelers before joining the New York Giants. Essentially, Burress said that this kind of in-house drama doesn't happen in Pittsburgh: 

"This would never happen in the Pittsburgh Steelers locker room. These things would never happen because everyone is their own leader," Burress said. "If you've got a problem with somebody, it's gonna get addressed. This is how we governed our football team. You got a problem with somebody, whatever they're doing, if they ain't out there giving effort that you think they should be playing with, we address you to your face like a grown man in Pittsburgh. That's the difference between playing in a locker room with the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants versus the Dallas Cowboys."
