Remember what the Patriots and other NFL players are actually protesting More than half of the New England Patriots roster participated in the league-wide protest on Sunday, with players from Devin McCourty and Brandin Cooks to Tom Brady and Malcolm Butler coming together in a sign of unity and solidarity against racism Rob Gronkowski Jersey, a decision spurred by divisive comments made by the President on Friday.“Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say 'get that son of a bitch off the field right now? Out! He's fired!" - President Donald Trump“We were obviously very conflicted,” McCourty said after the game. “We knew our message would be perceived by a lot of people in a way that wasn’t what we were trying to put out. A lot of guys felt, I mean, all over the place about the comments by the President Friday night. “As a leader on the team, a lot of guys came to me and they didn’t know what to do. They just were kind of angry. It was good Saturday. We all kind of talked as a group of releasing that anger and not being angry. We were in chapel and a lot of guys talked about that in our faith, God is first. We wanted to come together.”After the game, Patriots players discussed “brotherhood,” “fraternity,” “unity,” and “love” and how they were collectively coming together, “trying to do the right thing,” as McCourty put it, while his shirt spoke additional volumes https://www.shoppatriotsapparel.com/Austin_Carr_Jersey.
The Minnesota Vikings are no strangers to injuries. Since the start of training camp and now into the first preseason game they have had to sit Latavius Murray, Laquon Treadwell, Riley Reiff, Everson Griffen, Bishop Sankey, Trae Waynes and the most recent Alex Boone. And Sankey is gone for the season with a torn ACL Tom Johnson Jersey.With three preseason games still approaching it is not a fair stretch to say that they need to sit their starters. This may seem obvious to some, but there is still a chance that head coach Mike Zimmer could give some playing time to the likes of Sam Bradford or Harrison Smith. But the risk to rewards ratio is too high for this team who already has a questionable offensive line and seven players injured https://www.minvikingsfanshop.com/Stacy_Coley_Jersey.The preseason games are a great showcase for rookies fighting for a starting position or for players who want a spot on the team. It gives the coaches and fans a chance to see what they can do under the spotlight. But giving that same spotlight to the veteran players is something the Zimmer doesn need to do right now. Keeping these players healthy should be priority number one.Zimmer spoke with Andrew Krammer about the potential for starting the starters, t a really fine line. My concern is all right, how much do we weigh the guys that I really know I have an idea if they can play just getting them in there to play and the backfire to that is really, are they going to be in shape for Sept. 11? That something I contemplating right now.”While it sounds like he is leaning towards a no, that isn a 100 vote of confidence either. But if the Vikings are already losing these many players this early, it is imperative to keep them and the remainder of this team as healthy as possible. If youe damned if you and damned if you don, you might as well be damned and sit them. That way when September 11 rolls around it is all systems go for them.
