"Of course, this isn’t the first time Leinart has proven to be clueless about the NFL. A few weeks ago, he didn’t kneel down the way a QB is expected to at the end of a victory over the Lions, and the Lions defenders gave him an earful. He apologized after the game and said that he hadn’t been in victory formation before in the NFL and thus didn’t know the proper way to kneel down (which does make sense)."

Something missing![edit]

Reference to 1982-83 NFC championship game has this: "Since the Cowboys had possession of the ball, and many of their players, including backup quarterback Gary Hogeboom (starting quarterback Danny White had been injured earlier in the game),". Something is missing just before the comma! Based on what I see in the rest of the sentence, maybe this is needed just before the comma: "had already left the field". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:09, 30 August 2011 (UTC)


From a UK perspective, "taking a knee" is a more widely recognised term.

Maybe it's different in the States? In which case I'll concede to my colonial friends. x ;-)

As a colloquial term "taking a knee" may or may not be more recognized, but I think the official term that would appear in textbooks on football tactics would more likely use "quarterback kneel". So I would say the title of the article is appropriate, with "taking a knee" identified as an alias in the first sentence. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 01:20, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation ?[edit]

something ab the political meaning of taking the knee. Trump says those players should be fired who take it during the national anthem. (talk) 16:14, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
