The New York Giants hold their first joint practice with the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday afternoon at Paul Brown Stadium. Seems like the question on the mind of many Giants' fans is simply this -- are these practices a good idea?
The last time the Giants tried this, against the New York Jets back in 2005, Jeremy Shockey turned them into a disaster. The series of ugly fights during a recent joint practice between the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans heightened the concern. Paul Schwartz of the New York Post believes the joint practices are a mistake. What do you think? Vote in the poll and let us know if you think these are a good or bad idea.
