The message was simple, defiant and express-delivered to an orange-tinged septuagenarian living 3,600 miles away in Washington DC. As the Star Spangled Banner Chance Warmack Authentic Jersey rang out across Wembley, 27 players and staff of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens dropped to one knee to protest against President Donald Trump – the largest number at an NFL game. Dozens more on the Jaguars staff, including their owner, Shahid Khan, linked hands on the touchline in support.Some say sport and politics should not mix. But after Trump’s explosive tweets over the weekend, during which he suggested Packers Jersey that Panthers Authentic Jersey players Eagles Jersey who Eagles Authentic Jersey refused to stand for the national anthem should be fired and called on owners to “get that son of a bitch off the field” if they disrespected the flag, it was impossible to see how the two were not conjoined.
And just as the Jaguars came together off the pitch, they quickly did so on it as they produced a complete performance to blunt and then skewer the Ravens 44-7. Really, though, the result was secondary to the protests. As AJ Bouye, the Jaguars’ cornerback, put it powerfully: “I’m not going to lie. I was pissed off. I don’t know the president as a man but what he’s saying about us, he’s disrespecting our mums.
“And when you’re five years old and you’re seeing your dad have a gun pointed at his head because he looks suspicious in a neighbourhood at 6am because he’s dropping his http://www.nfleaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_CHRIS_LONG_JERSEY.html son off at a babysitter. It’s not about race, it’s not about black and white, it’s about right and wrong. I’m tired of it, I’m really tired of it.”The wide receiver Marcedes Lewis, who caught three touchdowns for the Jaguars, was also eloquent. “My stepfather is a purple heart, so part of me is torn and, with the social injustices going on right now in the country, you can pull from both sides,” he said. “You have got people scared to go outside, scared to be in certain places. What’s wrong is wrong.
“Man to man, you can’t tell another grown man, ‘Hey, you need to stand up’ or ‘You need to kneel’. You are going to do what you need Meanwhile Khan – the only non-white and only Muslim owner in the NFL – said that he fully supported his players, too. “We have a lot of work to do but the comments by the president make it harder,” he said. “That’s why it was important for us, and personally for me, to show the world that, even if we differ at times, we can and should be united in an effort to be better as people and as a nation.”
It is now a decade since Jonathan Stewart Youth Jersey the first regular season NFL game was held in London, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins. Since then it is the Jaguars, who have signed a deal to play at Wembley until 2020, who have crossed the pond most often. And increasingly they seem to be getting a thirst for it, given this was their third straight win here.After opening the scoring when Jason Myers hit an early 23-yard field goal the Jaguars quickly increased their lead when their quarterback Blake Bortles faked a hand-off to the running back Chris Ivory, faked a reverse to the wide receiver Marqise Lee and then found Lewis for the touchdown. That put them 10-0 up at the end of the first quarter. And while they had made 169 total yards in the opening 15 minutes, the Ravens’ net yardage was minus one.
It got even better for the Jaguars in the second quarter, as two more field goals and another Bortles touchdown pass, this time to Allen Hurns, left them 23-0 up at half-time. The Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who led his team to the Super Bowl in 2013, could only bang his foot in frustration as his team managed just one first down and 15 total yards in the entire first half.It was threatening to become a blowout. And soon it was http://www.officialpanthersnflauthentic.com/Nike-Kawann-Short-Jersey.html thanks to two touchdown passes from Bortles to Lewes early in the third quarter that put the Jaguars 37-0 up.The Jaguars’ coach, Doug Marrone, later expressed his delight and said it was the second-best experience in his life at Wembley behind coming to watch a Freddie Mercury tribute concert in 1992. “It is always outstanding in London,” he said. “I don’t know if I have lost in this stadium and the fans were outstanding, too.”
