While most around the NFL are banding together to bring attention to something outside of football, Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is not happy about what is going on around the league.

The hall of fame quarterback took issue with players kneeling and demonstrating during the playing of the national anthem. He made those feelings clear in a lengthy Instagram post he released on Sunday.

While most around the NFL are banding together for a bigger cause to bring attention to something outside of football, Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is not happy about what is going on around the league.
The hall of fame quarterback took issue with players kneeling and demonstrating during the playing of the national anthem, and he made those feelings clear in a lengthy Instagram post he put out on Sunday.

Even though I’m thankful the BILLS won today, I’m really upset and sad about what’s happening. And I imagine many of you are too. I love the game of football and all that it means to the players, fans and cities across THIS country…but with all that’s going on it’s hard. The only time I will ever take a knee is to pray and to thank the Good Lord for what he’s given me. We all have our issues. We all need to try and appreciate and understand each other and help each other and that goes for our PRESIDENT TOO. I don’t have all the answers. But I do know that we need to UNITE not SEPARATE. I hope next week we can STAND , LOCK ARMS and become ONE FAMILY. ❤️

He followed that up with a Monday morning interview where he took aim at Bills star running back LeSean McCoy, who decided to  continue stretching while most stood for the Anthem.

“I like LeSean McCoy, don’t get me wrong, but I totally, 100 percent I disagree with what he did,” Kelly said on 97 Rock radio, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN.

“You want to kneel? Fine. But when you go and do what he did yesterday, that sort of bummed me out. And I lost a lot of respect for him.

“You want to kneel? That’s your prerogative. I would never do that. I will always stand, thank the good Lord for everything I got. But when you disrespect the way he did and just go by his everyday duty in the national anthem being sung? Uh-uh. I won’t go for that.”
