As Together Again Saturday unfolds, one coach is already working to keep the guys apart.
Falcon coach Arthur Smith turned off in training after two fights, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
In the first post via ESPN.com’s Michael Rothstein, “big fighterupted, and Dalton was kicked out of practice. Smith “was not pleased. . . generally.”
Some coaches welcome the idea of a fight because the players need to have an advantage and an attitude. Many coaches prefer players to demonstrate the ability to know when to turn it off, as failure to do so will end up losing 15 yards of outfield position during a game.
Guys can also get injured during a fight – especially when someone inevitably decides to swing a gloved hand at a helmeted head.
