Del Rio has gone on record with his thoughts about Lynch and sitting for the anthem - it's not what he would prefer but he'll respect him as a man. Del Rio wasn't interested in revisiting the issue Saturday night. And that's what me and Khalil are, we're best friends and we love one another. "I think he's able to take it for what it is and learn from it moving forward but I think it's also our job as coaches to put him in situations that are conducive to making good decisions consistently".

And to think, all of this after Goff opened this week in practice getting bitten by the interception bug, including three on Monday that, had the ball bounced differently could have been five. On 2nd-and-1, the Los Angeles offensive line moved the entire Oakland defensive line back nine yards. Those two guys flashed.
