My Thoughts From Day 10 of Titans Training Camp - 08/06/14

Today is the first day I've worked that actually felt like Training Camp.  In other words, IT WAS HOT!  The only reprieve?  An early morning practice.  Not only is today the hottest practice so far, but according to Coach Ken Whisenhunt, it was also the most physical.  The big news coming out of St. Thomas Sports Park is the fact that the Titans FINALLY have released a depth chart.  Whisenhunt made it crystal clear that it wasn't because he wanted to, but that it was MANDATED by the NFL.  And that nothing is set in stone.  With that in mind, here are some thoughts and observations...

1)  Coty Sensabaugh is listed as the starter as the cornerback opposite Jason McCourty.  This doesn't surprise me.  I've thought Sensabaugh's been better for a majority of camp.  Whisenhunt attributed it more to seniority than performance.

2)  Shonn Greene is the starter at running back.  Dexter McCluster is the backup, followed by Bishop Sankey.  All three backs, as well as Whisenhunt downplayed this.  Whiz said this had as much to do with seniority as anything too.  In my opinion, all three will get plenty of work not only in the pre-season, but the regular season.  And by the time the season's over, don't be the least bit surprised to see Sankey getting a majority of the snaps.

3)  Tommie Campbell came to play.  He made a couple of nice plays this morning.  He needed to.  Desperately.  Number-37 has been beat deep about that many times during camp.  We'll see if that's enough to make the team.  My guess is he'll need to continue to step up during games to earn a roster spot.

4)  Craig Stevens can catch the ball.  For the first few years of his career, I had my doubts.  But Stevens made a sweet grab off a deflected pass in the back of the endzone.  If Number-88 can provide a consistent #2 Tight End target, that will be big for the Titans offense moving forward. 

That's what stood out to me.  That, and guys are already looking forward to facing the Packers on Saturday.  I don't blame them.  Practice is starting to get pretty monotonous.

GRANDMOTHER-GETAWAY DRIVER

ROCKAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- It's not exactly quality time with grandma. Police in northern New Jersey report busting a grandmother they say was the getaway driver for her grandson and his friends. According to authorities, a tip after a home rip-off led them to stop the car driven by 78-year-old Vera Buniak. She's been charged with possession of stolen property. Her grandson, 18-year-old Timothy Buniak, faces burglary and other charges. Police tell the Daily Record she may not have known a crime was being committed, but she was part of the process.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA-PRICES

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Medicinal marijuana users in Minnesota are in for some sticker shock. One of the state's legal pot producers is raising prices after less than a month in business. Dr. Kyle Kingsley of Minnesota Medical Solutions tells the AP prices on pills, vapors and liquids are up by as much as 20 percent. The company is also reducing the discount for low-income users. Kingsley says low demand is one factor in driving up their pot prices.

TAXIDERMY RIVALRY

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- It's Michigan State versus the University of Michigan -- as played by stuffed chipmunks. Lansing-based taxidermist Nick Saade has created a football display with 22 stuffed chipmunks wearing little Spartan or Wolverine helmets. The chipmunks are in passing, throwing, catching and tackling positions. Saade tells the Lansing State Journal the chipmunk Spartans are about to score the winning touchdown. He adds, "everybody knows MSU is better -- even the chipmunks."

HOT WORK

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Think you're hot? Don't trade places with Robert Carpenter. He's the pit master at The Grille, a Memphis restaurant. His day starts at 6 when it's relatively cool. But he can't stop grilling as the day heats up. Every time he opens the outdoor barbecue pit, the temperature spikes. Carpenter says a wet towel and an industrial fan help a bit. But he tells the Commercial Appeal newspaper, the real key is, "Water, water and more water."
