Colin Kaepernick called them his brothers.Dolphins teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson were the only two players to kneel during the national anthem on the NFL's opening Sunday Lamarcus Joyner Jersey , and Kaepernick, who is no longer welcome on an NFL sideline, made sure to offer his thanks to them via social media ."My Brothers (Stills) and (Wilson) continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed," Kapernick said in his tweet. "They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. ... Love is at the root of our resistance."It was Kaepernick, then with the 49ers, who sparked the anthem controversy by kneeling during the pregame ritual in 2016 — his way of protesting policy brutality and social injustice in America.Since opting out of his contract after that season, Kaepernick has been unable to land a job with an NFL team and is suing the league for collusion.But his voice is still being heard. Last week, Nike introduced an ad featuring the quarterback and his message: "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything."On Sunday, Kaepernick's message got through to his friends in Miami."I know he has our back," Stills said. "Really, there has been a huge difference between when we first started protesting and now. A lot of people are reaching out and supporting us, so I really appreciate that. To everybody out there ... let's keep doing our best to make positive change and have these conversations and make our country a better place."While Stills and Wilson were kneeling during the anthem Authentic Rodger Saffold Jersey , teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist. Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same at San Francisco's game at Minnesota. In Los Angeles, Chargers left tackle Russell Okung raised his fist. Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Brandon Marshall, and Seahawks linemen Duane Brown and Quinton Jefferson, retreated to their respective tunnels while the anthem played.At the peak of the anthem protests, as many as 200 players would partake. On most weeks last year, the Seahawks led the way with the most players doing something to make a statement. Though that number had fallen to 2 to start 2018, Brown wasn't worried."I made my decision. That was my decision," he said. "I wasn't paying attention to see what other teams or other players are doing."The NFL briefly had a policy in place in May regarding the anthem, but rescinded it after the players union filed a grievance, which sent the league to the negotiating table with the union. Those talks are ongoing. Brown said he hasn't heard any word from the union dissuading player protests during the anthem."I don't think that would be the best idea to try to get people to move on from it," he said. "The country hasn't moved on from it, so I'm not going to move on from it, either."Among those keeping the issue front and center is President Donald Trump, who sent a tweet of his own several hours before Kaepernick's Youth Rob Havenstein Jersey , taking digs at the NFL, and linking low ratings for Thursday night's opener between Atlanta and Philadelphia (lowest for an opener since 2008) to players who refuse to stand for the anthem."If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!" he tweeted.CBS and Fox, which carried Sunday afternoon's games, have said they did not plan on televising the anthem.However, NBC did show the anthem on Thursday night (but not before Sunday night's Bears-Packers game), and no players kneeled or protested in other ways.That included Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles, who raised his fist during the anthem last season but did not for the opener. During pregame warmups, he wore a shirt that read "Ca$h bail = poverty trap."Jenkins, a founder of the Players Coalition which was formed to tackle issues similar to those Kaepernick is concerned about, said he would like to move the focus away from the anthem."I think there's a huge need for us to turn the attention to not only the issues, but what players are actually doing in their communities to promote change," he said. "We're trying to move past the rhetoric of what's right or what's wrong in terms of the anthem … van-jersey , and really focus on the systematic issues that are plaguing our communities."Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders: Five opponents to watch DE Bruce IrvinSergio Estrada-USA TODAY SportsWith the departure of Khalil Mack, the big dog of the Oakland Raiders defense is now Irvin. New defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is going to utilize the 30 year-old pass rusher to maximum effect, so look for LT Andrew Whitworth to have his hands full on the offensive line. And if QB Jared Goff has a rough night, it would make sense to assume that Bruce Irvin had something to do with it.WR Amari CooperKyle Terada-USA TODAY SportsPencil it in: WR Amari Cooper vs. CB Marcus Peters. Both players have a lot to prove this season. Cooper needs to rebound after a lackluster season last year and Peters wants to prove that he deserves a big contract and that the Kansas City Chiefs made a big mistake in trading him. WR Jordy Nelson was brought into the Raiders organization to mentor Cooper, so secondtime first-year Head Coach Jon Gruden and his staff obviously have big plans for the star wideout — he just needs to fulfill his potential and that starts on Monday night. CB Gareon ConleyStan Szeto-USA TODAY SportsA first-round pick in 2017, Conley has been limited by injuries during rookie season.However, it appears that standout Ohio Stateproduct is ready to roll against the Los Angeles Rams. With elite speed, Conley will be able to chase after guys like WR Brandin Cooks and WR Robert Woods with little difficulty. It may make sense for Goff to stay away from him if it appears that he’s healthy and locked in.DE Arden KeyCary Edmondson-USA TODAY SportsThe third-round pick from LSU assumed that he was going to learn from his veteran teammates during his rookie year, but with the recent trade that send Mack to the Chicago Bears, DE Arden Key has been presented with the opportunity to provide solid run defense, which will be needed with RB Todd Gurley II on the field. The early hype on Key is that he has Aldon Smith skills with career trajectory of Danielle Hunter. QB Derek CarrCary Edmondson-USA TODAY SportsCarr and Cooper’s successes in the NFL are linked; their conjoined decline last year in production was obviously no coincidence. If Carr can stay healthy and play at the level his did two years ago, then Cooper will also be a threat in the open field once again. Carr’s biggest flaw is his pocket presence. That’s great news for the Rams’ defensive line which will be swarming all around him on Monday night. Carr excels when he’s not under pressure, so Rams Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips needs to consistently bring the heat in order to keep Carr off his game.
