In a post-training meeting with reporters, Washington Leaders Defense Coordinator Jack Del Rio downplayed the January 6 storming of the Capitol by calling it a “flick” compared to the racial justice protests that followed the death of George Floyd in 2020.

I can see pictures on TV [of the Floyd protests] Destroying people’s livelihoods. Business is burned. No problem,” he said. “And then we have dust in the Capitol, nothing burned, and we’re going to make this a big deal. I think it’s kind of a two-criterion, and if we apply the same criterion and we’re going to make sense to each other, let’s discuss it. That’s all it was [on Twitter]. Let’s have a discussion. We are Americans.”

Del Rio, 59, has been outspoken on Twitter in each of the three seasons he has coached the leaders, often relating to conservative political issues.

The most recent one came Monday night in response to an article by the Brookings Institution on Research on the House committee investigating the January 6 attack. del rio books“I would like to understand the ‘full story’ of why a summer of rioting, looting, arson, and destruction of personal property is never discussed but this ??? #common sense.”

His comments angered some fans and commentators, with former corner back DeAngelo Hall Tweet clown emoji In the veteran coach, leaders coach Brian Mitchell called Ron Rivera to handle the situation.

“How [you] You expect anyone on this team to be upfront when you have a guy like that in the defensive coordinator position? ” Mitchell said on his radio show 106.7 The Fan Wednesday.

Del Rio said he is not concerned that his players might criticize his comments.

“Anything I say or write, I will be comfortable saying or writing in front of everyone I work with, players and coaches,” Del Rio told reporters on Wednesday. “I express myself as an American. We have this ability. I love this country, I believe what I believe in, and I’ve said what I want to say. Every now and then, there are some people who are offended by it.”

After the exercise, Rivera declined to discuss del Rio’s tweets and whether he had discussed them with his defensive coordinator. Rivera said he was “not necessarily” concerned that Del Rio’s comments would affect the locker room, which is predominantly black and has many players who supported Floyd’s protests with words and social media posts two years ago. If it becomes a problem, Rivera said, he will deal with it.

“How do I deal with it, I won’t share with you guys because it will be a private matter,” he added.

Some of the more outspoken defense leaders, including defensive tackle Jonathan Allen and defensive end Chase Young, were not available for comment on Wednesday. Cornerback Kendall Fuller said he hadn’t seen Del Rio’s tweet, and after reading it, said he had no reaction. He said that if he changed his mind, he would bring it up with his coordinator.

Fuller was asked if the team has had ongoing discussions about the race since the summer 2020 demonstrations.

“It’s definitely something men still have,” he said. “It may not be as extensive as it was when it all happened. But it’s something you still see, conversations you guys still have. Just like everything in the locker room. I love the NFL locker rooms because everyone is comfortable.” We all know each other; we’re all comfortable with each other. Everyone is open to listening and listening to everyone. Everyone kind of just puts their opinions and pride aside and just listens to everyone’s opinions. I think that’s how we grow.”
