Buffalo Bills DE Jerry Hughes 'very disappointed' in Jim Kelly comments

Buffalo Bills DE Jerry Hughes 'very disappointed' in Jim Kelly comments

And I'm trying to hope the president understands. You made your point.

"So for him to carry on in this manner, I'm really confused and I'm really upset, because if this is something how he felt and if this is truly what he felt and what was on his heart, he should have came to the team and he should have approached that, instead of making this a public matter, and doing that on his social page". You know, you're supposed to lead this country.

Buffalo Bills star running back LeSean McCoy took a different approach as "The Star-Spangled Banner" sounded at New Era Field by continuing to go through his pre-game stretches.

After the game, McCoy told reporters he was very bothered by Trump's comments Friday night. But we're trying to bring the team together, we're trying to bring the community together, we're trying to bring a nation together. "I can't stand or support something when our leader of this country is acting like a jerk", McCoy said.

"I am so sick and exhausted of what's going on in this country", Kelly told Buffalo's 97 Rock, via ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.

Kelly said during a radio appearance on 97 Rock he "lost respect" for McCoy. If you want to kneel, fine.

Sean McDermott was asked whether Kelly would still be welcomed on the Bills sideline after Monday's comments. That's your prerogative. I would never do that. I can't stand and support something where our leader of this country is acting like a jerk, angry and upset about National Football League players protesting in a peaceful manner.

"I think obviously if you look around the landscape, not just in football but around the country, there is a lot of opinions getting thrown around in a lot of different directions".

A message left with Kelly's publicist was not returned. McDermott has not talked with Kelly about his comments and does not plan to.

Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico on Wednesday with heavy winds and rain, knocking out all power to the island. The destruction of properties, of flattened structures, of families without homes, of debris everywhere.

"Jim Kelly is one of the hallmarks of this organization", McDermott said.

McDermott doesn't know what protests may happen in the future. I don't have a crystal ball, unfortunately.

The Bills head coach often referenced Sunday's game in Atlanta, using the Bill Belichick strategy when answering questions about anthem protests.

He did say, however, that he and his teammates had a long meeting on Saturday about what to do during Sunday's pregame performance. "Great communication. Good first step". According to Kelly, it wasn't expected. "I was very disappointing in how he approached the whole situation". That's the biggest thing, man, and it showed today from guys taking knees, from guys touching shoulders show him that we're all in this together'.

"If Jim was going to do what he did, he should have come to the team and let us know his feeling", Hughes said.

That doesn't sit well with me. Do the right thing. It's having players do things that I feel is unacceptable. "Them talking about it is the best thing for them and for the team".

On Sunday evening, Kelly had posted on Instagram that "I hope next week we can STAND, LOCK ARMS and become ONE FAMILY".

He echoed similar sentiments on the radio.

Hughes called Kelly's actions "not cool", and "very unacceptable".
