August 9, 2006 -- ALBANY - Jeremy Shockey yesterday called the way NFL teams run training camps a "debacle" and insists the rugged two-a-day practices serve mainly to get players worn down and injured. Shockey maintains that today's players do not need to be put through the rigors that are a part of the annual summer football ritual. "This whole debacle, this training camp was designed back in the day for players who weren't in shape, to get in shape," Shockey said. "Now they have the offseason program, you're in shape already and it's dangerous." Most coaches, including Tom Coughlin, have cut back on the traditional daily regime of double practice sessions in full pads. "I don't think it's changed enough," Shockey said. "I think it will change in the future." Tiki Barber yesterday called the length of training camp "massive stalling" and Shockey said it's impossible for coaches to have it both ways, with players competing at a high level yet asked to stay out of harm's way. "They always try to tell people to stay off the ground," Shockey said, "but they always try to tell people 'Up the pace, up the pace.' When you up the pace, someone's going to get hurt, that's just the nature of the sport." A management/player rift--in camp yet. Giants off to great start.
