The Washington Redskins Just Put on an Amazing Display of Respect for the Flag and National Anthem

On Sunday, seven different NFL players joined Kaepernick to protest the national anthem.

One day later, in the game between the Washington Redskins and Pittsburgh Steelers — players on both teams stood together.

Yet, they didn’t just stand, they went out to the field to help hold the American flag while the anthem was sung.

And to go the extra mile even more, a U.S. Army Staff Sergeant sang “The Star-Spangled Banner”:

The best ever pre-game and National Anthem ceremony ai have ever seen in my life gping to any pro evemt. My hats off to you Washington Redskins and Daniel Snyder. I never thought I would ever say that. Lol. Well done. I am certainly proud to be an American. Thoughts.

Support for the Redskins and Steelers poured out on Twitter:

When Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden was asked about the way his team handles the anthem, he said, via 247 Sports:

“We take very much pride in our relationship with the military. We went to Andrews Air Force Base the other day and everybody that was there stayed after, signed some autographs…

And added, “For three minutes, for us to take our helmet off and stand up and give respect is how we treat it here with the Washington Redskins.”
