Cris Carter: The Eagles Fought So Much Under Buddy Ryan, One Guy Went to His Car for a Gun

Tempers flare as teams get deeper into training camp and the pre-season. Throughout the league, there have been near-daily reports of training camp fisticuffs. Some are intra-team, some spill over into squad vs. squad in joint practices. Generally, you’ll hear “football people” say the fighting in camp is nothing bad, and it might even be a good sign of competitiveness and heart.

Cris Carter disagrees.

Speaking on ESPN yesterday, Carter said that the teams that don’t fight are the real strong ones. And back in his day, under Buddy Ryan, there was an offense vs. defense mentality that was so severe, a defensive player once went to his car to get a gun in response to a fight with a guy on the offensive end. These days, that would lead to likely expulsion from the league [editor’s note: or a two-quarter suspension]. Back then, and especially under Buddy Ryan, it was no biggie.

I’d also bet some players went to their cars mid-practice to get their cocaine. Video after the jump.

    Hate listening to this pompous ass. Between him and Herm Edwards, I had to permanently shut down any chance of having Mike & Mike on the TV in the morning while getting ready for work.

    I’m not saying Mike & Mike was the best, but it was the best morning TV option. Have tried B.o.B and that is a complete snooze fest. And what’s up with Rob E constantly staring into the camera with those creepy beady eyes while the other 3 are having a conversation? Weird.

    Please don’t tell me this was Mike&Mike. Because Greenberg would have been talking about his “moist hands” and the “beautiful neckwear he wears”. Greenberg, nobody gives a fuck about what salad you eat. We are just glad you’re not on in the morning.
