Eli Manning makes light of heated Giants ‘fight’

Looks like those Eli Manning bobbleheads are worth fighting for, at least according to the Giants great.

After an all-out brawl involving almost the entire 91-man roster broke out at the first day of Giants padded practice on Tuesday, the 40-year-old, two-time Super Bowl winner tried to make light of the situation.

Manning — who played for 16 seasons with the Giants before joining the front office — responded to a Twitter contest to win one of his bobbleheads with the caption: “Now we know why the fight broke out at practice today!! The players are trying to get [their] hands on this bobblehead.”

The fight started when Corey Clement was hit by Xavier McKinney, with Evan Engram later pushing Jabrill Peppers. Soon the entire team was involved in the scrum with starting quarterback Daniel Jones pinned to the bottom of the pile.

During the scuffle, head coach Joe Judge could be heard dropping F-bombs and other expletives as he screamed for the madness to stop.

When the players broke away from one another, Judge dealt out his punishment: pushups and running laps from one end of the field to the other for 10 minutes. Judge then had the players come into a semicircle for one final lecture and practice was abruptly finished after that.
