Trump's controversial comments came days earlier at an Alabama campaign rally and on Twitter and inflamed a situation that began a year ago when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt as the national anthem was played to bring attention to police brutality against minorities.
UNDISCIPLINED GIANTS: Beckham took an unsportsmanlike penalty for pretending to urinate like a dog.
No, I really doubt if either will be able to run the ball effectively.
Matthew Stafford's pass to Golden Tate was ruled to be just short of the end zone in the final seconds after a review, allowing Atlanta to beat the Lions 30-26 on Sunday.
After Giants punter Brad Wing shanked a punt at the Eagles' 38-yard line, Philadelphia had only 13 seconds on the clock. Asked if he is bothered by that lack of regret from Beckham, McAdoo said, "I gave you my response". He said I peed on somebody, so I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on.
"I was fine with it because it shows that we're together no matter what", Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson said.
A fifth-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, he was 12 when he saw the first NFL game played in London on television and decided he wanted to play football. I wear red and white, I don't wear black and white. They call it "Orbit Y Bingo" with a progression they refer to as "Mardi Gras" because it's from the top-down.
"I believe in it and I'm not sure how much the President can empathize with our players and the way they grew up".
Beckham was beyond unapologetic.
"I'm so proud of him, man", receiver Torrey Smith said. They have guys on their team.

He relied heavily on his previous stint on "The Apprentice", in which he told participants they had been eliminated from the competition by telling them, "You're fired". He promptly sent a message by raising his fist in the air as his show of protest to the words of the POTUS last week.
The Eagles held a firm grip of the game leading 14-0 through three quarters. Beckham had some outburst during or after five of them.
Still: This was a different level, and the Giants shoulder some blame for enabling this behavior. You've just got to believe that going through tough times will make you stronger. "We're not asking him to prove anything at this point". "A team is not going to go down 100 yards throwing slants every play".
Trump, who owned the New Jersey Generals of the defunct United States Football League, lashed out against NFL players who have chose to kneel during the anthem at games. "He's somebody that we want here for a long time".
After running out of gas in a winnable game last week, Pederson and the Eagles need a victory nearly as desperately as counterpart Ben McAdoo and the football-challenged New York Giants, their opponent Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field (1 p.m., Channel 29, WIP 94.1-FM). That was more than enough.
