Comment below and give us your thoughts on players from the Texans kneeling and sitting during the anthem in protest of McNair.

The comment was not well-received in the room (it was said during an owners meeting), and McNair apologized to National Football League executive and former National Football League player Troy Vincent after the meeting - saying he felt disgusting and this his words weren't to be taken literally. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting last season by sitting on the bench. Several players publicly came out against the owner's comments, including veteran Duane Brown. But the network's "Post Game Show" aired a brief clip of Houston's players collectively taking a knee with arms linked along the sideline during the national anthem.
