Atlanta Falcons: A couple of fights breakout

FLOWERY BRANCH — There were two fights during practice on Monday after the team went all of training camp with only one minor scuffle.

On consecutive plays wide receiver Tim Toone and cornerback Peyton Thompson came to blows followed by a fight between offensive tackle Tyson Clabo and defensive tackle Micanor Regis. Toone lost his helmet in the tussle.

“We broke camp yesterday and I don’t know but everyone went home and came back in a bad mood,” Smith joked about the incidents.

Coach needs to set some rules or drop the hammer down, getting mad at practice ? 15 yard penalties and getting tossed out the game wont win games either if they made the team

Chris, keep working hard you’re getting there buddy. My personal best is 20 yards, but I had to put a lot of work in the weight room this offseason to get there. See ya at practice.

For some reason, the other quarterbacks won’t let me get into their football throwing contests . . . I hope this isn’t a black thing . . .

Domonique, no offense man, but I’m the franchise QB….It’s best that you don’t get into our competition. I’ll even put a good word in for you so the brass keep you in the practice squad.

None of you QBs better expect me to run down the field 20 yards, it’s enough that I came back one more year, I can start to collect Socal Security next year.

My beloved Taints never fight. They usually sit around and make gumbo during training camp. Who could fight over gumbo?

A little fighting on the practice field shows they are fired up. That’s a good thing. If I lost my last playoff game without scoring an offensive point, I’d be fired up too and ready to start the new season. Let’s hope they take that fight to the field.

People think fighting in camp is a bad thing…not in football in most case’s one of you is going to get good and the other is is going to get better anger show’s your weakness and that’s what coaches watch for in most fights.The point is if you can carry that anger that with after practice and pit it back up with the same intensity where you left off …you’re first string but if you’re fighting because you got beat than you’re a waste of time in football everybody get beat some time. Keep on fighting but fight to be a winner.

usually I just read but...

I would rather banter with the aints trolls than have this idiot try to hijack the thread. People have been banned for lesser foolish commentary. And it’s a good bet that Chris doesn’t have access to DLed’s mute button.

All these impersonations are whack. Leave it be Saints troll. I mean look at who are fighting. ROOKIES. The only one who is valid is Clabo, and let’s just face the facts, he is a Dirty Bird (one of the few) Olinemen.

And hiram, Curtis Lofton was in a scuffle his first week during OTA’s da hell you talking about.

Translation of Coach Smith’s reaction quote- “I’m not at all worried about the incidents because Toone, Thompson, and Regis aren’t making this team anyway. It was amusing to see them tussle a little bit though.”
