    Sherman says McNair exposed his true feelings

    RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said Friday that Houston Texans owner Bob McNair exposed his true feelings with a recent comment in which he likened NFL players who protest during the national anthem to "inmates running the prison."

    Sherman expressed his appreciation for Seahawks owner Paul Allen and others throughout the NFL who believe in equality. But he said McNair's comments are representative of how some of the league's other owners feel.

    "I think there are very progressive owners in this league who don't feel that way," Sherman said. "But do I think there are some conservative owners who have Confederate flags at their homes and things like that? Yes, yes I do. I don't think that they feel like there's anything wrong with that ideology and that Southern heritage, in quotations. But do I think all owners think like that? No, I don't. I think there are some great owners in this league who have done everything they can to make this world a better place. But do I feel some have that old line of thinking? Yes, yes, and he's one of them."

    McNair was quoted in an ESPN The Magazine report as saying during last week's owners meetings, "We can't have the inmates running the prison," in reference to ongoing player demonstrations during the national anthem. He has since issued an apology.

    Asked if McNair's comment will be a setback in the progress that NFL players and the league have been making in working together to address social issues, Sherman said he doesn't think it will be.

    "I appreciate when people like that show who they are," he said. "More people in the world need to be that open and that candid about how they truly feel so you can identify them and make sure you stay away from those kinds of people and keep those kinds of people out of power. But, of course, they've got to sit back and apologize because it's politically correct to apologize, but eventually, you've got to take people for their word and for who they are. For most players, even once we apologize, they still take what we said and judge us by it, so you should do the same with him."

    Sherman took issue with McNair's choice of words in particular.

    "When you think of people in a certain way, then your analogies go along with that," he said. "If he was speaking about his family or anybody in that situation, and his kids were running rampant in his home, he wouldn't say, 'Man, I've got to put my foot down so the prisoners don't feel like they're running the asylum.' He wouldn't say that because he has love and adoration and thinks of them equally. He thinks of them as people, so he would never use an analogy or a phrase like that. But when you think about people in a certain way, then things like that roll off your tongue effortlessly like they did."

    A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins left practice Friday in response to McNair's comment. Sherman, who knows Hopkins well, said he hasn't spoken to the receiver recently because the Seahawks are hosting the Texans on Sunday, but he understands why Hopkins would walk out.

    "Obviously, if [McNair] was our owner, I'd feel strongly too, but our owner is awesome, and he feels like people should be treated equally and is all about civil rights and equality, and I think obviously he's done his part as a philanthropist," Sherman said. "So thank 🤬 we don't have to worry about our owner being involved in some of that, but some of these owners are showing their true colors."

    Seahawks middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said of Texans players: "It sucks that they have to deal with that. I wouldn't want to play for a guy like that."

    Sherman, the Seahawks' player representative for the NFLPA, said he thinks Texans players would sit out Sunday's game if NFL contracts were guaranteed.

    "I'm sure they'll show up and play as a hard as they can because they didn't work hard and do all that sacrificing in the offseason and put their bodies on the line for this owner," he said. "They're fighting for their teammates. They worked hard. They're going to put their hard work to use. But I think that they will make their point to him, and their points known, because obviously he does not value them in the same way they may have once thought."

    Texans will meet as a team in Seattle to discuss McNair comments further

    A day after word emerged that Texans owner Bob McNair said “[w]e can’t have the inmates running the prison” during last week’s ownership meeting, emotions remain raw for Texans left tackle Duane Brown.

    In a phone interview with PFT, Brown said that, after sleeping on it, “I still feel the same anger, disrespect from it. Yesterday was a tough day for me, for the whole team, for the coaching staff. Just a lot of emotions that ran through our minds.”

    The emotions resulted in a tense meeting with coach Bill O’Brien, during which players expressed a reluctance to participate in practice. Brown, who returned only five days ago from a lengthy holdout, emerged as the leading voice from the players’ side.

    “I was the first one ready to leave, but I wanted to talk to Coach about it,” Brown said. “After talking to him I was able to stay and practice. For me personally, it’s a little bit different since I was away from the team for so long.”

    Brown explained that, once he decided to stay, he didn’t try to persuade others to do the same. Eventually, only two players left: receiver DeAndre Hopkins (who according to Brown was the player most upset by the comments) and rookie running back D'Onta Foreman.

    Brown said that he currently believes the players will travel to Seattle, and that they will have a team meeting once they arrive there for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

    “Everyone is committed to playing tomorrow,” Brown said. “We made a pact that the game is bigger than [McNair]. It’s about us trying to win a game together and being there for each other.”

    Brown said players separately were concerned about the fact that McNair didn’t address them about the situation on Friday.

    “He still hasn’t been present,” Brown said. “We were hoping he would have been around yesterday to address it. His apology in a blanket statement doesn’t seem sincere.”

    G.M. Rick Smith also was present at Friday’s pre-practice meeting. Per Brown, Smith expressed disagreement with McNair’s comment, but he tried to downplay it as a figure of speech. Browns isn’t ready to accept that explanation.

    “The figure of speech is ‘inmates running the asylum,'” Brown said. “To use the word ‘prison,’ it makes everybody feel pretty bad.”

    The underlying message also troubled Brown and his teammates.

    “You don’t have any power,” he said of the message McNair was sending. “You don’t matter. A lot of us already feel that way anyway. You’re a jersey number, and we’ll replace you whenever we want. That kind of confirmed it.”

    Duane Brown recalls other quotes from Bob McNair that caused concern

    Texans tackle Duane Brown was upset when he saw owner Bob McNair’s remark that “[w]e can’t have the inmates running the prison.” But Brown wasn’t surprised, because it wasn’t the first time Brown believed he had witnessed McNair making curious word choices on matters of significant sensitivity and potential controversy.

    During a Saturday morning phone interview with PFT (which preceded the meeting between McNair and the team), Brown recalled an occasion during his rookie year of 2008, when Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first African-American president.

    “He came to talk to the team,” Brown said regarding the owner. “He was visibly upset about it. He said, ‘I know a lot of y’all are happy right now, but it’s not the outcome that some of us were looking for.’ That was very shocking to me.”

    Brown added that McNair also addressed the team after the scandal that forced Donald Sterling to sell the L.A. Clippers, when racist remarks Sterling made in private became very public.

    “The message was more to be careful who you have private conversations with, because things that you think are confidential can spread like wildfire,” Brown said. “In my mind, it would probably have been better if he said ‘don’t be a racist’ instead of ‘be a racist in private and make sure it doesn’t get out.'”


    Brown’s reference to Sterling comes at a time when some league insiders are wondering whether McNair ultimately may have to sell the Texans. I asked Brown if he thinks it would ever come to that.

    “I’m not sure, man,” Brown said. “In the climate we’re in right now, I’m not sure what could happen.”

    It’s unclear where Brown’s relationship with the Texans and McNair will go from here. Previously, however, the Brown-McNair relationship wasn’t great, apart from the player’s holdout.

    “I protested [during the national anthem] last year, and there was no backing of my character as a man as a leader or a player,” Brown said. “There was nothing said by [McNair] or the organization to back me at all. They just kind of sent me to the wolves.”

    Brown said that, after the protest, McNair “didn’t have anything to say to me.”


    The Texans had no comment on the quotes attributed by Brown to McNair.

    Although Brown can (and will) be accused of having an axe to grind because of a lengthy holdout that resulted not in a new contract but in Brown showing up this week under the terms of his prior deal, he publicly said nothing about his situation while he was away from the team, and he did nothing to agitate for a trade or a release. There were no shirtless driveway situps, no “next question” press conferences, no inflammatory comments about the quarterback situation or anything else relating to the team.

    While Brown suddenly has become very vocal with his criticism of McNair, it happened in direct response to the publication of McNair’s words, which upset plenty of other players. Indeed, as Brown stayed on Friday, two of his teammates (DeAndre Hopkins and D'Onta Foreman) left.

    What Dungy said is true, but he's missing the point. lol No one things McNair was literally calling the players inmates. People understand that it's a figure of speech and think even in context, it's out of line.

    Tony Dungy is a legitimately kind hearted man who wants to believe the best in people. Normally that’s a plus but here it’s a weakness.

    Like that old saying goes: when someone tells you who they really are... believe them.

    My question for people like Tony is: How many times Esau gotta tell you exactly who he is before you start to believe him?

    Hes a company man. and a van jones ass 🤬 though ill say that
