Cleveland Browns Should Protest Their Garbage Play Instead Of The National Anthem

Several Cleveland Browns players made the decision to kneel during the national anthem.

Twelve players from the organization kneeled and prayed during the anthem Monday night against the New York Giants, according to ESPN.

Safety Jabrill Peppers told the media, “There’s a lot of racial and social injustices in the world that are going on right now.¬†We just decided to take a knee and pray for the people who have been affected and just pray for the world in general.”

Protesting is the hottest thing in the streets these days, but perhaps the Browns players should spend a shade more time protesting their pathetic performance on the field. Why is Peppers even protesting at all? He’s a rookie hasn’t done a single thing of note in the NFL, and has yet to play a meaningful second.

The Browns can’t find time to study the playbook or figure out a way to score touchdowns, but they have no problem taking a knee for the national anthem.

I’m really getting sick and tired of these national anthem protests. Colin Kaepernick is out of the league, likely for good, but his cancerous actions are spreading like a disease. The Browns won’t win a Super Bowl, but now they can at least take home a participation trophy for dumb protests.
