The most anticipated fight of the offseason besides me vs. Falcons fans is new Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree vs. new Los Angeles Rams CB Aqib Talib. The two have a history of ruffling each others' feathers (I can use this pun now because Crabtree is a Raven). Both players went at it last November, resulting in an ejection and a one-game suspension for both.
In Monday's joint practice -- the first of two before Thursday's preseason game -- there was no chain snatching, no curse words (that I've heard of) and both Talib and Crabtree were on their best behavior. The Ravens offense struggled, but Talib did manage to break up the only pass thrown at Crabtree all day, so he's got that going for him.
Sounds like they've either put it behind them (hope not) or they've gotten some warnings from their new coaches who are capable of actual leadership. Both Sean McVay and John Harbaugh made sure to say they have "no tolerance" towards fighting before both teams practiced.
