Many fans praised the Cowboys for the way they handled the pregame. This stems, of course, from Colin Kaepernick's controversial decision to kneel during the anthem because, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".
"We've always rallied together for good causes, and I just love it when they speak out because people listen when they speak", Jones said.
The message has been lost [of] some of the social injustices these players are protesting during the course of the anthem.
There were numerous boos from the Monday night crowd at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. You might think it's silly or wrong-headed, but it's not offensive and disrespectful the way kneeling during the anthem is.
According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, the regional and national Sunday NFL windows on CBS, Fox and NBC averaged 17.2 million overall viewers and a 10.0 household rating, down 4 percent in viewers and 1 percent in households from the Sunday prior, when just seven players declined to stand for the national anthem. "They did not seem distracted to me". Numerous e-mailers probably didn't realize that this occurred before the playing of the anthem. The first quarter looked like a flashback of the Broncos blowout as the Cowboys seemingly couldn't stop the Cardinals offense. They notched things up at seven before the half thanks to a lovely touchdown run from quarterback Dak Prescott.
Initially, it appeared the Cardinals had him stopped well short of the end zone, but Bryant kept moving the pile, and after a second, third and fourth effort, got the ball to cross the plane for the touchdown. The Cowboys then scored in four plays, capped off by an 8-yard touchdown run by Ezekiel Elliott to go up by two scores 28-17. We're against, and we need to do some things about unity and about equality.' I don't know why you have to create controversy, much less controversy regarding the flag. Could be. Jordin Sparks just proved that she didn't have to kneel to take a stand. I respectfully disagree, completely.
Garrett sidestepped a question on whether the Cowboys would do something similar Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams in their first home game since the display.
"He's exercising his freedom to speak", league spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call with reporters, "and I'm exercising my freedom not to react". "We did the things we needed to do to get the win tonight". "But we were real pleased with how our team fought and kept battling". And a near-repeat in the first half against the Cardinals. He said it was all Jones, who leaned on his long-standing relationships with his players and support in the face of criticism. You failed. You had a chance to turn this tide and you blew it.
