Speaking at a political rally in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump said: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!
On Sunday, Trump tweeted he was pleased to see so many NFL players locking arms while also decrying those who knelt. He later tweeted the NFL needed to change its policy concerning anthem protests.
Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!
Lemon threw the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime against Baltimore to help Miami avoid a winless season following an 0-13 start.
Pressed into action in 2007 when Trent Green suffered a career-ending concussion, Lemon was squeezed out the following season when Bill Parcells took over football operations. Lemon ended his playing career in the CFL.
After his Dolphins starting debut in 2002 replacing an injured Jay Fielder, Lucas described his performance as probably the worst a quarterback has ever played in the history of the NFL. He wasn’t far off, having committed six turnovers and completing just 13 of 33 passes for 165 yards in a loss to Buffalo.
Entering the 2002 campaign, there was some thought Lucas might be a better option than Fiedler. Not even close. Lucas didn’t play in the NFL again after the season ended.
