Another day, another fight at Eagles training camp


After a fight involving running back LeSean McCoy and defensive end Trent Cole on Sunday, another fight broke out in training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

According to Geoff Mosher of, a scuffle took place between receiver Jeremy Maclin and cornerback Bradley Fletcher during the team’s first full-padded practice of camp. The two players hooked up and exchanged blows after a physical play toward the end of practice.

One thing led to another,” Fletcher said. “It’s football. Emotions get going and things happen, but we’re all just working to get better.”

Head coach Chip Kelly didn’t seem to be overly concerned about the fight between McCoy and Cole on Sunday either.

“Yeah, their emotions got the better part of them. Those things happen. It’s no different than sometimes little kids don’t get along very well and throw Tonka trucks at each other,” Kelly said. “…That two kids push each other in practice somewhere. It’s not a real big deal.”

The Eagles had just two fights in all of training camp a season ago. Now they’ve had two fights in as many days.

    Sounds like the defense is getting tired of all the media attention…Thats a good thing for us eagle fans..bad news for the NFC East..the philly defense played better then the stats say the last half of the season. The differnce being. The Philly defense played more snaps then any other defense. Actually about 17 1/2 games worth compared to other defense’s playing less downs..thats why their stats are misleading.

    Somebody tell Richrad “big mouth” Sherman that brandon Boykins had 6 INTS to Shermans 8, with more return yardage and the same amount of TD’s and more passes broken up then Big Mouth sherman..oh half the playing time as Sherman..Sherman says Stats don’t lie..i agree

    What sucks is the eagles are a really good team, just not good enough. Not a single elite player on defense . The thing that really worries me are injuries. Aside from training camp (maclin Benn and Phillips) this team really escaped the injury bug last year.Chances are philly will not be so lucky this year. Division champs sure, win a home playoff game and maybe another ok, but going all the way? Not with that secondary.

    That’s actually a good sign

    Nick Foles’ career is in jeopardy after losing an eye to a thrown Tonka toy. He was trying to break up a fight.

    This (subtly orchestrating fights at practice) is something Bill Belichick has been notoriously known for.

    I’d be feisty too if every day I got up for work in Cracktown.

    Just wait til they start losing games, then they’re really gonna start fighting each other! #HTTR

    Hey, assault on the field or off the field, he’ll grab headlines anyway he can to attempt to feed the ego.

    Stay classy Eagles.

    Kelly is always good for a quote…Tonka trucks…

  12. staffordsyear says: Jul 29, 2014 6:36 AM

    Tonka Trucks?..those were quite heavy in my younger days.

    This team is far from dysfunctional.

    Just Chip encouraging competition to bring out the best in players.

    “Practice hard and the rest will be easy.”

    The Hanson brothers were fighting over their tonka trucks again!

  15. dcstinks says: Jul 29, 2014 7:14 AM

    Good to see that they are getting aggressive.

  16. rugermini14 says: Jul 29, 2014 7:28 AM

    Time to separate the men from the “kids”.

  17. mckaymatt says: Jul 29, 2014 7:35 AM

    I’d be a little more concerned if it was offense fighting offense or vice verse.

    NFL needs to check those “personal smoothies.”

    “little kids don’t get along very well and throw Tonka trucks at each other”

    Except the fact that these are grown men

    Chip must be playing D12 at camp this year. “This is fight music”

  23. 700levelvet says: Jul 29, 2014 9:22 AM

    Has this ever happened during any other teams training camp? In the history of the NFL.. It’s almost unprecedented… Drip

  24. upperdecker19 says: Jul 29, 2014 9:33 AM

    At least they’re not all going after Riley Cooper this year…….yet

    “The Philly defense played more snaps then any other defense. Actually about 17 1/2 games worth compared to other defense’s playing less downs..thats why their stats are misleading.”…. I guess the same can be said about your offense then, right?… you make no sense..

  26. mungman69 says: Jul 29, 2014 11:27 AM

    There is no crack in Pittsburg ? Then there must be no people there either.
    The Eagles have a tougher schedule this year so this defense will be extreamly more difficult. Huh?

  27. phillyjoe says: Jul 30, 2014 8:29 PM

    Tonka trucks!
    We’re not gonna fall for the banana in the tailpipe trick! Gotta love Chip Kelly. He’s the Yogi Berra of football.
