Training camp fight didn't surprise Garrett: 'Those things happen in football.'

The training camp fight between nosetackle Jay Ratliff and what seemed like the entire offensive line a day ago in camp didn’t surprise coach Jason Garrett.

In pads, everyone gets a little more revved up, he said.

“There’s always a fine line,” Garrett said. “You want to compete against each other and push the edge and push the limit of with competition and physicalness but still understand that we’re teammates. Those things happen in football. They’ve happened in football since the beginning of time, and I thought our guys handled it well.”

It looked like center Phil Costa was in the middle of everything.

“It was something between those two,” rookie guard Bill Nagy said with a smile. “They were just competing. They’re both competitors. They’re both tough guys. Sometimes that happens.”

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for this post. I definitely agree with what you are saying. I have been talking about this subject a lot lately with my father so maybe this will get him to see my point of view.

Holy God! Imagine a Cowboys team with a little bit of fight in them. Say it isn't so.

Jay Ratliff may have iniated it to welcome the kid to training camp. No harm, no foul..
