With apologies to John and Jim Harbaugh, we’re going to write about a training camp fight.

According to Darren Urban of the Arizona Cardinals’ official website, defensive tackle Darnell Dockett and offensive tackle Bradley Sowell got into a minor scuffle after the conclusion of a play.

The scrap was quickly broken up but head coach Bruce Arians made Dockett and Sowell run laps for the remainder of practice.

We were coming off a big win where obviously as a team we looked good and the message today was don’t be complacent,” Sowell said. “Me and Dockett had the same mindset, neither one of us were going to go there (and be complacent). It happened the way it happened.”

Sowell said he and Dockett briefly spoke while running laps and the incident is already behind them.

“We’re teammates,” Sowell said. “It’s done.”

    Battling the heat and chomping at the bit for the regular season, it’s understandable why scuffles occur during training camp.

    If the individuals agree to squash it immediately then no harm no foul.

    Cardinals think a preseason win is a big win. That about sums them up.

    I’d say that if any team excelled in all areas during the 1st preseason game, then you can chalk that up to a “big win”. The Cardinals looked good in every facet Saturday, so yes….big win considering they can build on all of that to improve vs. addressing things that didn’t go well.

    If this were the result after the 1st preseason game, then I understand the “big win” rhetoric from previous comments.

    Finally!! A coach who gets the importance of discipline and actually does something to instill it instead of enabling bad behavior by praising it as “spirit”.
