We’ve got such a special

Postautor: chenyan94 » 13 wrz 2018, 10:26

The national anthem is going to be a hot topic at the NFL owners meetings.

Just don’t expect any far-ranging decisions to be made.

Judging by the comments Sunday from the Texans’ Robert McNair and the Jets‘ Christopher Johnson Danny Etling Jersey , the debate among the 32 owners could be confrontational.

McNair, who last year made an analogy of inmates running the prison about players’ demonstrations during the anthem, remains adamant that everyone should stand for the ”The Star-Spangled Banner.”

”Our playing field is not the place for political statements, not the place for religious statements,” McNair said. ”It’s the place for football.”

Johnson, acting owner of the Jets with his brother, Woody, serving as ambassador to the United Kingdom, took a far different tack.

”I have immense respect for the players and their efforts,” Christopher Johnson said. ”I think if other teams approached it like that, it would not be such a problem in the NFL.

”I can’t speak to how other people run their teams, but I just think that trying to forcibly get the players to shut up is a fantastically bad idea.”

While the social protests players made last season will be a topic here, reaching an agreement on language in the league’s policy regarding behavior during the anthem is highly unlikely. Owners will meet again in May in Atlanta, and with so much other business to attend in the next three days, the anthem issue figures to extend until then.

”I don’t know if it’ll be a vote or just a new policy coming out Tre Madden Jersey ,” Giants owner John Mara said. ”I think we can’t go much beyond the May meeting before coming up with some sort of resolution to that.”

McNair and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones are among the leaders of the move to ban any demonstrations during the anthem. McNair drew strong criticism from a variety of players after making his ”inmates” comment last fall.

”We’re going to deal with it in such a way, I think, that people will understand that we want everybody to respect our country, respect our flag,” McNair said Sunday. ”And our playing fields, that’s not the place for political statements.

”Fans are upset about it. The fans are our customers. You can replace the owners and the league would survive. You can replace the players, although the game won’t be as good. You can’t replace the fans. If you don’t have the fans, you’re dead.”

Johnson was more willing to search for answers to the anthem issue while also not wanting the players’ messages to be lost. He doesn’t favor seeing the policy changed to having the players remain in the locker room until after the anthem is played, which has been discussed.

”I think that’s a particularly bad idea,” Johnson said.

What about changing the language to the players must stand?

”I don’t agree with that either, but I’m only one of 32 owners,” he added. ”I think that the Jets had a pretty great thing happen last year around the anthem. I think there was an understanding between me and the players that we could use our position – rightly or wrongly, people pay attention to teams and athletes – but we could use our position to get some great stuff done off the field. I think we have done some great things off the field.”

Another off-field topic is the sale of the Carolina Panthers. Jerry Richardson announced in December that he was selling following allegations of workplace misconduct.

”He’s going to sell the team,” McNair said of the 81-year-old Richardson. ”He’s had all kinds of health problems. … I don’t know all the details, but I know he has some good prospective buyers that appear to be qualified.”

As for investigations into Richardson’s behavior Daniel Kilgore Jersey , McNair defended his fellow owner, also citing instances when the Texans faced similar accusations.

”I understand what he’s saying,” McNair said. ”Sometimes people choose to try to make something go away rather than fighting. I think his regret is he didn’t fight some of these things.

”We got confronted with it, too, where people will allege something, they get a lawyer, and what they do is come out and threaten you. And your legal counsel and your insurance people say, `Well, it’s going to cost you X number millions of dollars’ to defend this. And if we can settle it for this.’

”Well, wait a minute. We’re not guilty. Why would we do that?’ That’s the question. Sometimes just to get rid of it, if you can get rid of it, (you) – do it.”



Well, that didn’t last long.

The Los Angeles Rams’ first playoff appearance in 13 seasons came to a quick end Saturday night when the young, upstart team led by the NFL’s youngest coach was schooled by Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons, who won the wild-card game 26-13.

It was the Rams’ first playoff game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since 1979 and their first in Southern California since 1986.

Only six Rams players had playoff experience Star Lotulelei Jersey , including left tackle Andrew Whitworth, who went 0-6 with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Whitworth said it was natural that players would be nervous in their first playoff appearance.

However, second-year quarterback Jared Goff downplayed the team’s lack of postseason experience.

”I think they played better than we did,” Goff said. ”Playoff inexperience, I don’t know what that means. Each game’s the same. This one has a little bit more meaning to it, of course. But we did not play well. And if we played like this two weeks ago against the same team, we would have lost as well.”

The Rams fell behind 13-0 thanks to two special teams gaffes by Pro Bowler Pharoh Cooper. Todd Gurley got going too late to help, although he did finish with 101 yards rushing. Goff made some nice passes, but also had some misses and watched his teammates make some drops.

Cooper fumbled on a kickoff return late in the first quarter when he was hit by Damontae Kazee, with Kemal Ishmael recovering at the Rams 32.

Devonta Freeman capped the short drive with a 3-yard scoring run to give the Falcons a 13-0 lead.

Matt Bryant kicked field goals of 29 and 51 yards in the first quarter.

The Falcons, who blew a 28-3 lead in last season’s Super Bowl, had their first score set up by a special teams blunder by the Rams that allowed Atlanta to almost completely flip the field.

With the Falcons forced to punt from their 14, Cooper was indecisive and let the ball bounce at about the L.A. 40. It hit off Blake Countess’ foot during a wild scramble that ended with LaRoy Reynolds recovering at the Rams 17.

The Falcons had to settle for Bryant’s 29-yarder. He kicked a 51-yarder on Atlanta’s next possession.

Cooper took the blame for the miscues. He said he should have protected the ball better on the kickoff return. On the punt, he said he needed to take control of the situation by yelling ”Poison,” as in Eric Rowe Jersey , get away from the ball.

”They’ve been so good for us all year,” Goff said. ”They’ve won so many games for us. You can go look throughout the whole season how many games those guys, in particular Pharoh, have contributed to and put us in good field position. The first one was a freak one and the second one I know he’d like to have back. He’s a Pro Bowl returner and has done such a good job this year. I know we wouldn’t want anyone (else) back there.”

The Rams had gone from 4-12 in 2016, their first season back in Los Angeles after 22 years in St. Louis, to 11-5 and the NFC West championship under first-year coach Sean McVay.

The Rams were hosting their first playoff game in the Coliseum since Jan. 7, 1979, when they lost 28-0 to the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC championship game. It was their first playoff game in Southern California since Jan. 4, 1986, when they beat the Cowboys 20-0 at Anaheim Stadium.

McVay was born 20 days after that game.

The Rams moved to St. Louis after the 1994 season and won their only Super Bowl after the 1999 season.

They moved back to L.A. prior to the 2016 season.

”It’s hard,” Goff said. ”We didn’t want this to end at all. We’ve got such a special group of dudes in there, coaches and everybody. It’s such a special group. You don’t want it to end this early by any means. But I think we have a good, strong core group we’ve built this year.”
