National Football League players made themselves look bad

National Football League players made themselves look bad”

Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva is not happy with all of the attention that he has received lately.

"To wake up in the morning and see the face of Coach (Mike) Tomlin and the face of a soldier pitted against each other is completely unacceptable from the media", Villanueva said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Also, many Steelers players are still very uncomfortable about what happened last Sunday, and now, Pittsburgh's players and coaches plan to stand arm-in-arm before this Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

"We're trying to get everything right, we're trying to honor our fans, we're trying to honor every single person who loves the Steelers, and today I think we got a step closer to that".

Villanueva was the only player to come out and stand for the anthem last week prior to the Steelers' game at Chicago last weekend.

He later explained that a communication mix-up separated him from the team, but he surely has nothing to explain.

"I made Coach Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only".

"To use me as a tool to push an agenda and push message is completely unacceptable", he said.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are still upset over how last weekend's national anthem protest unfolded, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. There's a lot of miscommunication from the media and with the players here. I made my teammates look bad, and that is my fault. I love the organization, coach Tomlin, and the offensive line. "We did the best we could".

"At this point, the whole kneeling or standing up is a much bigger issue than what we're asking for as a league", he said. We're not letting anything outside of this locker room distract us from what it is that we're trying to accomplish. "It's different, I'm sure, for some players because they have certain feelings". Every single citizen has their rights.
