I read the article about how the jets went full speed against the giants and how they were objective to it. does anyone think it would be wise for the texans to practice that speed with the broncos or should we go half speed. i just thought that Tom coughlins fiew on how the jets "played to hard" was kind of weak. I would rather we treated it as a real game to prepare us for real games.

I think you have that wrong. They (the teams) agreed not to hit the backs and Coughlin called them on not honoring the agreement.

Sounds like to parties agreeing to a limited war. It never seems to work very well.

If you agree not to hit the QB's you don't hit the QB's. Same for the backs. Football isn't war.

No, but it is competition and everyone wants to win and seems like if someone is getting the best of you you try to change what you are doing. I would agree Vinny that its suppose to be a gentleman's agreement, but in the heat of battle things change.

Im just saying i think it would be better if we were to be the aggressor in the scrimmage as opposed to being the ones getting rolled over going half speed and complaining about the broncos hitting to hard or breaking rules. From how the article read, the Giants were getting rolled over. in many games, players get away with cheating or bending rules or even the occassional rough housing. fact is on game day you can complain all you want, but its not gonna help.

If you can't honor rules then you shouldn't agree to them in the first place. Nothing changes except it makes the one breaking the agreement a liar or untrustworthy.

Later in the morning practice session, Coughlin got into an argument with Henderson after several plays in which the Jets appeared to go beyond the prescribed rules of the practice, which allow defensive players to bump or slow down ball carriers as they go by, without tackling them.

When teams go half speed, people get hurt. Not what we want this early in the season. Wasn't there and agreement in the Tokyo Bowl, not blitzing while first team Offense was out, that seemed to work out fine. Starters got their reps in, backups saw full action. Kept Manning and Vick from being hurt.

I didn't catch if NY/NY was a scrimmage or preseason game...

If preseason game, it should be full speed, and do what LCROD said. No one bought tickets to watch a practice.

If it's a scrimmage, I don't think it should be full speed or 100% contacnt.

IMO.

I think it was during the '03 camp, right? I remember some Bronco players complaining that the Texans practiced at a slower tempo. Then the heat got to them the next day, & the grumbling about tempo stopped. Capers & Shanahan have a lot of respect for each other. Shanahan raved about the Texans facility & said he'd like to come back. He wasn't flapping his gums, they're back.

I don't remember if I heard it pre-game or on NFL Network, but the coaches had a gentlemen's agreement to not blitz 1st teams. Hopefully it catches on league wide.

I mean, does this agreement apply to practices/scrimmages, or pre season games?

It was a scrimmage/practice, similar to the one that the Texans will have with the Broncos during the week.
