“Massive fight” at Giants camp

It’s about that time for teammates to get sick of hitting each other, and to start punching each other.

The Giants had a “massive fight” on Tuesday, via Matt Lombardo of FanSided. According to Lombardo, running back Corey Clement broke free for a big gain. Defensive back Logan Ryan “leveled” tight end Evan Engram after the play ended.

“Somehow Daniel Jones ended up on the bottom of the pile,” Lombardo writes.

The entire team ended up running 100-yard sprints because of it and multiple rounds of push-ups because of it. He then gathered the players and ripped them for what had transpired.

“There are consequences for things like that in the game,” Jones told reporters. “We certainly got that message [from Joe Judge] today.”

Some coaches like to see that kind of fire. However, it also creates an unnecessary injury risk. Especially if the starting quarterback ends up in the middle of the fray.

  1. Don’t care what anyone says. Joe Judge is cringey and a joke of a coach and will be fired after this season if not next.

  2. Would be unfortunate but also very funny if the next QB training camp injury happened this way. They’re getting more creative: Dak, Wentz, Stafford,….?

  3. The level of play at MetLife stadium between it’s two tenants suits the surrounding area quite well. it STINKS

  4. It’s all about the atmosphere created and nurtured by the head coach. And Judge seems cranky.

  5. Shows a lack of discipline. Don’t know why Ryan felt the need to do this, it doesn’t make him a better football player.

  6. “Somehow Daniel Jones ended up on the bottom of the pile,”

    Gee, I thought guys who went to Duke were smarter than that

  7. Joe Judge is going to wear on these guys quickly. They’re professionals. Not High School kids.

  8. Pushups and gassers. I get it is punishment, but it didn’t work out well for Matt Patricia. If the players sense a bit of BS from Judge, he will lose them and join the list of broken limbs on the Bellechick coaching tree.

  9. Joe Judge is going to wear on these guys quickly. They’re professionals. Not High School kids.

    *****Act like high school kids, get treated as such. That’s what 4 win teams do in preseason.

  10. Can we please stop calling men in full body armor pushing each other around or grabbing onto each other “fights”?

  11. I see a lot of 4 win predictions for the Giant’s season.
    I guess the real question is, will that be enough to win the NFC East. 😉

  12. Anybody that has played football at any level knows from experience,that fighting on the practice field is nothing unusual and especially during summer camp before the season starts. Not the first time…won’t be the last. Nothing to see here.

  13. Latest attempt to import “The Patriot Way” via some scrub assistant coach sure is paying off.

    When are the owners going to figure out it was just a combination of a great QB and cheating, and nothing to do with these dime a dozen coaches?

  14. Joe Judge will become the next Tom Coughlin the way things are going. He’s bringing discipline and the players are going to end up hating it…

  15. It seems as if the offense had a great day today and that is likely the reason why Logan Ryan and the defense got frustrated. So far it has been the Giants D that was playing better than the offense. Today the tables turned and things got chippy.

    And that wouldn’t be a bad thing. They used to talk about Scotty Bowman (the winningest coach in NHL history, with 9 rings as a coach) in Montreal (where he won 6 rings) as follows: “for 364 days, the players hated him. On the 365th day, they collected their Stanley Cup rings”
