Players on the Houston Texans have voiced their distaste with the comments of owner Bob McNair by taking a knee during the National Anthem, prior to Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Out of respect for Houston Texans’ owner Bob McNair, players on the Texans haven’t kneeled in protest through their first six games of the season.

Well, that has now changed.

Over the past two days there have been reports that players on the Texans will protest McNair’s “inmate” comment by taking a knee. And that’s exactly what they did before Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Josina Anderson of ESPN posted a photo of players on the Texans kneeling on her Twitter account.

Some players decided to sit rather than kneel. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting last season by sitting on the bench.

Then after talking with former Green Beret and former Seattle Seahawks’ long snapper Nate Boyer, he decided to kneel, since it would be more respectful for military veterans.

There was also talk of players on the Texans possibly not even coming out for the anthem or removing the decals from their helmets. But they ultimately decided to sit or kneel during the anthem.

I would love to know what’s going through McNair’s head right about now. Is he cursing out his players, or is he humble while understanding why they’re upset at him?

I wonder if some players will kneel or sit next week as well.
