Default Washington/Carter scuffle

I just wanted to let everyone know who didnt know already that Nate Washington and Tyrone Carter got into a scuffle at training camp today.

Its no big deal these things happen. I was there (with a V.I.P. field pass) so I saw everything happen, and its nothing major that the media is blowing it up to be. The players afterwards even made fun of the fight when Ben jokingly jumped on Farriors back and the two play fighted.

i was waiting for autographs by the locker room as always and both Nate and Tyrone had to sign autographs together. I asked Nate if everything was cool with him and TC and he said thier fine, and that Tomlin is making them sign a autograph together for every single person there.

I would not be surprised...

Wait until an 11 on 11 drill, when they do a draw play.. or short pass play... Ward is going to line up Anthony Smith... and crush him.

then again, Smith would probably pop up, say nice hit.. and continue on.

Just got through reading this article on Steelers.com and I love the fact that our defense is wanting to make a statement, but ya know what? I think that they are making it the wrong way.. they are hitting hard, but it sounds like they still cant cover anyone...
I dont think that Hines Ward would come out and say anything if it were not kind of bad. By the way it sounds... its just our defensive backs still cant cover our WR's little less anyone else's. It just seems to me that the DB's and S's need to work on their cover skills more. I love the fact that our secondary is probablly 2nd to none in tackling ability, but you must cover a little bit also.

I can't wait until we get there!!!

Remember Tomlin saying that he would be watching and the new team captains would reveal themselves as camp goes on?? I think he is letting the guys work these things out themselves and watching who steps up as leaders. I love how hungry and energized they are.......but take in easy on each other, guys!! Save it for the enemies!

I have to agree with ward on this one you don't want to hurt somebody before the season starts.

Wow. A genuinely interesting article based on training camp!

I'd love to know whether Ward thinks that the DB's have got together and decided to take no prisoners, or whether its something that has come down from Tomlin.

It seems like there are some running battles between offense and defense - is it a coincidence that Smith has picked Reid out for special attention each time, or is he just the guy that he is expected to cover.

Anyone know why Washington threw the ball in Carters face?

I know Len Pasquerelli tried to hint that Steelers practices have been bordering on blood lust (before he retracted the article) with the big hits and the appearance of the 'Oklahoma drill'.

This sounds like an army camp.

There is an article about this on SteelsersLive.com. It's from Peter King and it is about Hines Ward's comments about the hard hitting that's going on, and it makes an allegation that he is not drinking Tomlin's Koolaide.
