Will Panthers DB Eric Reid protest during national anthem?

Marcus Newton
October 8, 2018

The team was up by a point after a clutch touchdown by rookie Saquon Barkley in the last minute of the game - but Cam and co. came charging back up the field.

Colin Kaepernick #7 and Eric Reid #35 of the San Francisco 49ers kneel during the national anthem before their game against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium on September 18, 2016. Let me just say this game was pressure packed.

He added: "He's a great player. He's really smart with those kinds of things and they do a nice job putting him in some of those kinds of situations".

Prior to Sunday's game, Reid said he was "still considering" whether he will continue the protest.

But instead, Newton dropped back and quickly threw to Wright, who took it 27 yards, breaking a tackle before getting brought down at the 17.

Reid said he is hesitant to express optimism that his signing will open the door for Kaepernick, but added "we'll see what happens". "I don't get 20 targets like some other receivers, you know". "I'm trying to grow, I'm learning on the way, on the fly, but I'm proud of where we went today". That is the longest such drought in the league. I'm a football player.

Trump to buzz American phones with presidential alert test on Wednesday
How do I block these? FEMA invites the public to send comments on the nationwide EAS-WEA test to FEMA-National-Test@fema.dhs.gov. On Wednesday, the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System sent a test message to nearly every cellphone user in the US.

With a large American flag in the middle of the field, Reid went to his right knee as the "The Star-Spangled Banner" was sung by Marc Martel. "I don't know", came Beckham's response during a sit-down with Lil Wayne and Josina Anderson.

"Hey, no one cares", wide receiver Torrey Smith said last week.

Reid did tell coach Ron Rivera before the game that he was going to kneel, but also said he didn't believe he needed anyone's approval to do so. If that was the issue, it would be a problem. But that's not the way it works.

"Eric knows what's best for Eric and what Eric needs to do". We kept fighting, kept fighting, and kept fighting. So if that's something he decides to do, it's what he decides to do. "But we're going to keep pushing toward that".

That was just one of the backbreaking calls that went against NY in the game, as the Giants were called for eight penalties for a total of 62 yards, while Carolina committed just four penalties for 22 yards.

"I didn't have any cool "Superman" celebration like Cam", Gano said of Newton, who celebrates touchdowns by pretending to reveal the "S" on his chest. "Simply nothing more, nothing less".
