The NFL owners spent $ 100 million to support the player’s social cause.

NFL owners seem poised to donate nearly $100 million (including some contributions from players) over seven years to support the favorite social justice causes of the players. But in a perfect show of how incompetent they are, the owners will get nothing from the players in return. No promise to stop disrespecting the national anthem or any other meaningful concessions.

Who taught these clowns to negotiate, Neville Chamberlain? Obviously, they are used to trying to buy their way out of problems. Can you even imagine the sum total spent bailing their pampered players out of legal beefs, domestic violence and sexual misconduct issues? It would likely dwarf even Congress and Hollywood. But do they really think this will solve their problem?

Now the owners have taught the players that disrupting the business that feeds them all will bring the players more satchels of cash to toss around to pet causes, in a frenzy of virtue signaling.

“That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld

You never get rid of the Dane.”

So the NFL owners look like they will cave in and hope, hopelessly, that this will buy them some good will. Sadly, it will simply embolden the modern-day Vikings and Raiders and Buccaneers to continue their blackmail, lest the looting of TV ratings commence again.

What the owners should have done is said quite simply and emphatically: “Stand for the anthem or sit for the game – period.”

There would almost certainly have been a revolt if players got an ultimatum like that, and some of these ill-mannered millionaires would have continued to kneel or sit as “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played.

So what? Let them sit out the game, and play their back ups. Most of these guys are too over-leveraged spending their newfound wealth to miss too many paychecks.

Even if you had to miss a week of football, you would not be giving away control of the league to a collection of grievance mongers. Better to have one fight on cheap nfl jerseys principle standing up for the national anthem and flag both literally and figuratively, then to set yourself up for a series of cringing capitulations week after week and year after year.

The victorious players will now see their ability to extract funds for any cause, even their own enrichment, to be greatly enhanced.

The league has plenty of problems, including the massive liability caused by years of ignoring the damage done to player’s brains. Maybe they don’t think they have the standing to stand on principle right now. But by kneeling themselves, the owners have simply ensured that they will feed a social justice crowd that knows no compromise.

They would have been much better off to read to the end of that Kipling poem on Dane-geld and do the hard thing now:

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,

No matter how trifling the cost;

For the end of that game is oppression and shame,

And the nation that pays it is lost!”

There are only a few perks that go with being a Green Bay Packer stockholder, but one is voting each year for the board of directors of the team. If the owners pay this bribe without securing an enforceable agreement that the players will not disrespect the national anthem and flag, then I will lead a stockholders revolt and run for the Packers Board on a promise to do just that.

These wannabe social justice warriors have plenty of their own cash and plenty of time outside the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” to pursue whatever causes they wish.

Americans should not stand for their disrespect, and I sure won’t.

Injuries played a part in Jake Matthews’ struggles as a rookie.

Most end up being like Jake Matthews, an above-average player who is improving but is still far from being a perennial All-Pro. And in today’s league, sometimes, that’s just fine. Line construction begins with and is dependent upon solidifying the left tackle position, but that’s only the beginning for franchises who take this approach.

I know, it sounds a little strange to me too. But Atlanta’s offense was high-flying because its offensive line became a cohesive unit that blocked well in run and cheap nfl jerseys free shipping pass situations. A two-headed rushing attack of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman thrived inside and outside the tackles because the line, anchored at the center by Alex Mack, managed to open lanes to run. Just look at the Falcons’ first two plays of Super Bowl LI: Atlanta ran the same toss sweep (pulling franchise tackle Jake Matthews out into the open field as a lead blocker) twice in a row and found itself on the edge of New England territory as a result.

While evaluating Matthews throughout the season, former Falcons offensive line coach Mike Tice believed Matthews’ sets were inconsistent. Tice constantly rode Matthews about his hand placement, telling him there was too much catching that led to being susceptible to bull rushes. Matthews’ run blocking was below average early in the season, but got better. And after a stretch of four or five strong games late in the season, Matthews bombed in the season finale against Carolina.

Atlanta Falcons starting left tackle Jake Matthews, who underwent surgery in January to repair a torn Lisfranc ligament in his foot, was back on the field for Tuesday’s session of organized team activities.

The Atlanta Falcons have lost starting left tackle Sam Baker for the season with a torn patellar tendon, and as a result rookie right tackle Jake Matthews said he is ready to switch to left tackle.

Matthews has started all 47 regular-season games and all three playoff games he has played with the Falcons, missing only one regular-season game due to a high ankle sprain. He is set to make $2,665,386 for the 2017 season, including a roster bonus of $1,970,386 due on the third day of training camp.

After Freeman lost a yard on his next run, disaster struck for Atlanta. Ryan was sacked, Jake Matthews committed a holding penalty and the Falcons were forced to punt the ball back to the Patriots. Although play-caller Kyle Shanahan came under heavy fire for that sequence, he wasn’t alone in his aggressive approach to the possession. Just before Ryan took the field, Quinn implored, “Let’s go attack, Matt. Do what we do.”

Injuries played a part in Jake Matthews’ struggles as a rookie. “The way they’re featuring Clay is back to his traditional role as a pass rusher, so there will be some family-on-family crime for sure there,” said Falcons coach Dan Quinn on the Packers’ Clay Matthews going up against cousin Jake Matthews come Sunday night.

But not so fast. Clay Matthews is the left outside linebacker, meaning he’s likely to face Ryan Schraeder more than Jake Matthews. And Jake Matthews is more likely to see Packers right outside linebacker Nick Perry.

Still, Jake Matthews obviously knows how to compete against his cousin. Jake Matthews did not return to the contest after suffering a knee injury in the second quarter. The game was tied at 13 when the Falcons offensive lineman made his early exit. He was later seen going to the locker room.

Matthews’ return wasn’t the Falcons’ only encouraging news on the injury front. Starting strong safety William Moore returned to practice for the first time since undergoing significant right shoulder surgery in the winter. Starting center Joe Hawley was back at practice for the first time since tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee. And rookie cornerback Jalen Collins, who underwent foot surgery prior to the draft, went through individual drills wearing a helmet.
