Jessie James Decker Said Eric Decker Wasn't Told That The Titans Weren't Going Out For The National Anthem

The Tennessee Titans were one of the teams who stayed in the locker room for the National Anthem.  According to Titans WR Eric Decker's wife, Jessie James Decker, the players weren't aware that they were staying in the locker room.

She then took to Instagram to stand up for the National Anthem and added a video of herself singing it.

One of my favorite things to do is sing the national anthem. I think about my dad, my uncles, my cousins, both grandfathers who fought in the Vietnam war. I think about how my grandfather paw paw Tim would ask me to sing this song for him every time I saw him and how he would make me turn the other way to sing it so he could just weep and cry as hard as he wanted because it meant so much to him. I think about all of our troops I got to visit with and spend time with in the Middle East when I went over seas to sing for them. I think about all of the men crying because they missed their wives so much, or the man telling me he hadn't seen his baby girl yet since she was born. When I sing this song I think about them. This song is about them. It's not about me. That's what I think about every time I sing it. I love our country so much. And we should all love and respect each other because this is the greatest country in the world. I see the love. I see the unity in all walks of life on a daily basis and It makes me so proud to be an American..... so In the words of Forrest Gump. That's all I have to say about that.

People throw around the word hero far too often, but posting a video of yourself singing the National Anthem with a long caption has to be right up there.  Am I right?
