Right now not much is going right, said Justin Pugh, normally a guard for the Giants line who was shifted to right tackle after Bobby Hart was lost in the first quarter due to a right ankle injury. We’re not running the ball well, we’re not protecting the quarterback well �� we’re not good overall.
So while the Giants sent reinforcements to Pugh’s side, trying to patch up a paper mache line that was already struggling to begin with, the Lions ran right past the Giants’ left, through tackle Ereck Flowers.
Taken ninth by the Giants in the 2015 draft, Flowers was uprooted by Ezekiel Ansah on multiple occasions Monday; Ansah accounted for three of Detroit’s sacks.
We tried to give [Flowers] some help as the game went on, McAdoo said. It’s more than one player.
Kickoff. The Packers won the toss and elected to defer to the second half. Andre Roberts returned the kickoff to his own 14-yard line.
The announcement was made that kickoff would be delayed five minutes due to the Cowboys-Broncos game being pushed back with a weather delay.
I was very disappointed in him, Hughes said of Kelly. I was very disappointed in how he approached the whole situation. Our team came together and we united as a front, as an organization on how we were going to approach the national anthem. If Jim was going to do what he did, then he should have came to the team and let us know his feelings. He should have let us know how he was going to do the national anthem. Because we didn’t know he was going to be there from a team perspective.
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 was something that truly was how he felt and 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. It was not cool, very unacceptable, and if he has things to say about us as a team, come talk to us.
