United State President Donald Trump took center stage on Friday night, speaking out about NFL players who protest during the pregame national anthem, stating that it’s hurting the game.
The President spoke at a political rally in Huntsville, Alabama.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!” Trump said the protests are “hurting the game.”
Of course Trump might have been directing his comments at the first player to start those protests, that being former 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but on Friday Trump didn’t mention Kaepernick or any other NFL player specifically.
“The only thing you could do better,” Trump said, “is if you see it, even if it’s just one player, leave the stadium. I guarantee things will stop. Things will stop. Just pick up and leave. Pick up and leave. Not the same game anymore, anyway.”
The NFL has yet to make any formal comment about the President’s speech.

Well, now that I have finally settled on a title for this thing I think this will be easier to find.
Week Two in the NFL was an exciting week as several teams we didn’t think would win won their games. We know that some people thought that Dallas would beat the Broncos but the Broncos stuck it to the Cowboys. And how about the Falcons and what they did to last week’s number one team the Green Bay Packers? They rise to the top of this week’s poll in convincing fashion.
There was a lot of movement in the poll for Week Three. Who moved where and why? Let’s find out as we dive into my sometimes late but always consistent Week Three NFL power poll.

Get excited sports fans, because football season is finally here! And while there are plenty of places to catch all the great action this weekend, there’s only one place to keep track of all the great action this Sunday when it happens – and that’s the CBS Sports App.
Sunday will have 14 games in the NFL, with 8 games kicking off at 1PM EST, and 5 games at 4PM EST. The premiere game in the early kickoffs has to be the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots as they look to rebound after their stunning week one loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Pats will be in New Orleans to take on a Saints team that did not play well against the Minnesota Vikings. Speaking of which the Vikings will look to get to 2-0 as they will head to Pittsburgh to play the team that the Pats beat in last seasons AFC Title game to reach the Super Bowl – the Steelers.
If you have a fantasy team (and who doesn’t), you need to have the CBS Football app at your disposal on Sunday’s to keep track not only of your favorite team and all their stats, but also all the players on your fantasy team.
Week Two has four solid 4PM Eastern games, with the biggest on the docket being Zeke Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys in action on the road against the Denver Broncos.
Both teams were winners last week, with the Broncos winning their opener at home on MNF against the new look Los Angeles Chargers, who will play in their new stadium at home against the Miami Dolphins.
Dallas was a winner against one of their rivals Sunday night at home against the New York Giants, with the story line being the huge game that the Cowboys defense had holding Eli Manning and the Giants offense to three points and 225 yards.
Make sure you have the CBS Sports App, sponsored by CBS Sports ready to go on Sunday, as you will need to keep track all day of all 14 games on the Week Two schedule.
Don’t forget about the two primetime games this week, as the Green Bay Packers will look for revenge after last years NFC Title Game loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the Sunday night showcase game kicking off at 8:30PM Eastern.
Monday night the high powered Detroit Lions with Matthew Stafford coming off a four TD outing in week one will take on a Giants team that will look to get on track offensively after their poor outing against the Cowboys.
Don’t miss a minute of any of the great NFL action this weekend with the great CBS Sports App!

The first week of the 2017 NFL season has come and gone and it was one of the most exciting that we have seen in a long time. There is a new leader at the top of the poll while there is plenty of shifting going on in the middle of it. The Jets remain at the bottom after a tough first game while some of the teams that I had originally thought would remain at the bottom surprised me.
So how did things shake out this week? Let’s find out as we take a look at my week two NFL Power Poll right here on NFLGridirongab. Comments are more than welcome.
