"I was referring to the relationship between the league office and team owners and how they have been making significant strategic decisions affecting our league without adequate input from ownership over the past few years", McNair said in a news release. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself. But our owner is awesome. "So much so. that head coach Bill O'Brien said he didn't know what his players were doing but he is 100 percent behind them". To use an analogy of inmates in a prison; I would say they're disrespectful.
McNair issued an apology on Friday morning via the Texans' official public relations account on Twitter, but players around the National Football League, including several Seattle Seahawks players, weren't so quick to forgive. Left tackle Duane Brown told ESPN that "up to 65 to 70 percent" of the team's players could kneel; an initial idea to remove the team's decals from their helmets has been shelved.
Whatever happens, players on teams in the rest of the league also took notice of McNair's remarks, with some calling him akin to Donald Sterling, the former Los Angeles Clippers owner who was suspended and forced to sell his team by the National Basketball Association after racially charged remarks that were recorded came to light.
But Sherman said he didn't anticipate a possible boycott by any players or any real change in Houston's approach to the game. "I think that's what our team is trying to do".
Sherman criticized McNair's apology, saying, "You meant what you said", and adding that he wished more people would reveal their true colors.
Uh, well, let's just say I strongly disagree with the tone in which Gottlieb judges someone as unintelligent. "It's something that we'll reconvene and talk about again, but we had practice today". "We'll see what that means".
Prosise initially sprained his ankle against Tennessee on September 24 and sat out the next two games.
If Britt can't play then rookie Ethan Pocic would be the center. He said there will also be a pregame demonstration by the team before Sunday's game.
"He's picked stuff up immediately", Carroll said. "He has great feel for it".
