three of us on this set are unqualified to speak on this topic and should shut our mouths because we are white. i am being serious. we couldn't know what it is like to grow up black in this country, we couldn't know what it is like to live as a african american in this country. i think we should all just watch, listen, learn, and that is why i let you speak first on this topic. >> just to have the right to speak as well. >> we do. >> freedom of speech. we are all given that. today on 9/11 teams chose the protest in different ways. that is also their right. it is a fascinating thing -- >> we have the right to speak but with no credibility is what i am saying. >> credible or not you are still given the right to speak.

send but when you do it with the national anthem the positive message of social injustice gets crushed by the negativity of disrespecting the national anthem. >> the national anthem does not and the flag doesn't just represent the military, it represents us all -- [ talking at the same time ] >> media people as well. to say while i disagree with your disagreement to say as if -- you know, it is sacred, a certain class can protest that -- >> the mood of the show is about to change after we come back. >> opportunity to show the world who we are. >> when broncos tonight continues, darian stuart tells us what kind of language was

[ music ] >> we have been waiting a long time so much hype for game one. this may have been better, especially the way it turned out at the end. >> i think so. it was a hard fought game. they had us on our heels after the first half, man. so we wanted to come out and be better than the first half. >> reporter: what changed? >> we tackled better. i thought we executed better. >> reporter: [ inaudible question ] >> a lot of bad words, man.
what time of team we have, man, just being accountable. so i think just that leadership stepping up and making sure we have it right. >> reporter: i remember talking to tj ward in the off season about the super bowl, he said the play that turned the game was your play. and then it happened again today. you blew him up -- he may never want to see 26 again. >> that is what they keep saying. that is what i do, man. my type of physical. you know, hate he had to get a piece twice. >> cam was tearing it up early but you started hitting him and things changed. >> yeah. absolutely. that second half we got after him. you know? the pressure picked up, man. i thought we covered better. >> reporter: looks like he is chirping out there. see? see? >> he is a great player.
from him. watch who you talk to. we got a bunch of just, like, just dolls, physical type players, will come hit you. you know, that is what happened tonight, man. we were after him. >> reporter: does it mean more because you beat the team, a really good team, first game of the season, there are a lot of guys that like to talk. >> yeah. just meant more to get the season started 1- last year was last year. we wanted to come out this year, man, and show them, man, we still here. you know, we are looking forward to doing the same this year. >> all right. the colts are next. broncos lost 8-9 to
them. he is terrific. >> very good quarterback last week, another good quarterback, strong, can run. andrew luck is a better passer than cam newton so the defensive backs will be tested more this week. but the broncos have shown they can lose to the colts and still be in the super bowl. >> the colts are built on speed. they play on the turf and indoors. they have been a fast team. receivers are fast. the broncos defense is built on speed. i think it is that type of match-up. colts match-up well against the broncos. they are beat up on the offensive line. the broncos are going to pound andrew luck andrew luck on sunday. >> colts lose to the lions. [ talking at the same time ] >> so they are -- i mean, you have two different scenarios coming in, luck had his way
set. this is a different quarterback. they are used to. turn the page, get a different guy. >> broncos-colts sunday at home, 2:15 p.m -- >> something like that. >> and then broncos tonight that night.
