If youre planning to watch the Super Bowl but you cant stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit.
The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with 20.
Still, neither of the Super Bowl teams was in any danger of catching the leader: the Seattle Seahawks, which easily scored the most episodes of sitting or kneeling with 156, followed by the San Francisco 49ers with 110.
Both of those teams play in the NFC West. Oddly enough, the divisions other two teams the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams had zero take-a-knee protests.

A fitting end to the season.
Some of the Eagles did display black power clenched fist salutes during anthems, so they are not all clean on this.
The standers vs. the kneelers.
Maybe the Eagles took him aside when he arrived and "advised" him not to continue such shenanigans...
EXACTLY!!!! even more disrespectful!!!
The Eagles are going thru a revival of sorts. They have a Christian coach and several players have been converted this year. There was a story showing the baptism of a few players a few weeks ago. I was already for the Eagles because I’m always against the cheaters, but this time I’m FOR the Eagles and pray God continues to use them.
And the worst is it is all based on a lie (Like “Hands up, don’t shoot) that white police are gunning down innocent blacks every day. 2015 statistics* indicate that (in killings where the race of the killer is known) 97% of blacks are killed by other blacks, 1% by police. Of that 1% how many are innocent?. Of the police who do the killing, how many are white?

Guilt by association, I havent heard of any criticism by the IGGles of their fellow NFL bots. I’m thinking they maybe agree
No use for any of them anymore
Yeah. I refuse to watch this NFL crap. But Tom Brady is a patriot and a conservative. ( by the way Im a New York Yankees fan so I dont root for anything even near Boston in any sports league ).
I dont have a horse in this race nor do I intend to watch any NFL games ever since they came down with knee-monia. But I wish Tom Brady and Bill Belichick (apparently another conservative) the best in their endeavors.
Wonder how a white power salute would have gone over.
Malcolm Jenkins has been big on the Social Justice stuff, and maybe didn’t kneel but used the clenched fist for sure - the new guy Long said he wouldn’t go to the White House if they were invited in protest of something or other - they’re not all clean - the good thing is TV has downplayed the on-the-field antics and they haven’t distracted from the game, at least so far....
The only way the nfl will get anything from me but disrespect is if they steal it.
The game is meaningless. Trump won. NFL lost.
I remember despising one cat who did something like take a knee or raise the fist, whatever
I recall mocking him to my buddy who’s a huge iggles fan
And he wasn’t the only one. So the iggles are hardly Choir Boyz
I’m rooting for a boring azz game, so the fools who actually watch it are wasting their time, and hopefully turn it off early
