Frustration boils over at Saints practice as fight breaks out
1 Attachment(s)
The New Orleans Saints have endured a frustrating offseason for obvious reasons. The offense -- missing its quarterback and head coach -- had a particularly rough Wednesday morning.

Backup quarterback Chase Daniel was repeatedly picked off and his passes kept getting broken up. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that linebacker Curtis Lofton touched Daniel after one play, which touched off a fracas.

Daniel threw the ball at Lofton, someone yelled "stay off the quarterback!" and pushing and shoving commenced.

Practice fights are a rite of summer. Fights usually pick up in volume in training camp, when the hitting truly starts and the players are more ornery. But the Saints have plenty to be ornery about now so they got started early.

Rapoport tells us the fighting lasted a minute before everyone got back to work. Meanwhile, Drew Brees was somewhere filming a NyQuil ad.

Saints get testy, fight ensues during practice -

Whatever... :bng:

Daniels isn't looking good. Hmmm......
What should we do about that?
EDIT: What are we going to do about that?

Spag must have taken the training wheels off the defense, looks like they turned it up a notch

Dear Mickey Loomis,

Naw Chase had a flashback remembering how hard Lofton hit him in college when they played each other, flipped out for a second and his teammates on O came to his rescue cuz lets face it....Chase has no chance of taking Lofton in a fight. LOL. Its just a camp scuffle....least it wasn't on a suckerpunch level after the fact like Steve Smith or that guy from the Lions recently. It happens all the time...I found it funny & telling tho afterward when the media was in the locker room one of the reporters asked Malcom Jenkins if they ever got into like that with Drew. He said no nobody would touch Drew because Drew is our HOPE & DREAMS. LMAO.

LB Curtis Lofton, QB Chase Daniel instigate mini-fracas at Saints minicamp

METAIRIE, La. – Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton came through the offensive line untouched, sights set cleanly on quarterback Chase Daniel on Wednesday during New Orleans’ morning minicamp practice.

But Daniel, seeing no outs, all but gave up on the play and held onto the ball.

Lofton, however, expected a pass so he jumped up, coming down close enough to Daniel to brush the quarterback.

Seconds later, the first scrum of minicamp ensued.

“Quarterbacks, they’re a little touchy when it comes to stuff like that,” Lofton said. “I was walking away and he gave me the look and I was like, ‘He better not do that.’ He threw the ball but it bounced and it hit me and I had to have words after that.”

Milliseconds later, Pro Bowl right guard Jahri Evans came to Daniel’s defense and a more than minute-long fight broke out, one that ended with the quarterback back at the huddle and tight end Jimmy Graham on the bottom of the pile.

“Sooner or later, it was like 30 people,” said Daniel, the team’s No. 1 quarterback right now. “I just said, ‘Hey, I’m out of here. I’m going back to the huddle to get ready for the next play.”
