Joe Judge had every right to be upset on Tuesday after his team got into a massive brawl that had the team’s starting quarterback pinned at the bottom of a pile.
The New York Giants’ first day of padded practice at training camp ended abruptly Tuesday when coach Joe Judge punished his players for a teamwide brawl. He had them alternate running laps and doing pushups as punishment.
Soon video would surface showing the standard looking tackle that caused the brawl to even happen in the first place.
It started with an unexpected hit on running back Corey Clement and escalated when tight end Evan Engram shoved safety Jabrill Peppers. CB Logan Ryan was said to have came flying in to push Engram in the back, which turn things drastically.
“There are consequences for that kind of stuff in a game,” Jones said. “That was the message.”
Of joining the fight, the quarterback said “I’m a part of the team, part of the offense, and I don’t see myself any different.”
