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.

JETS-REX-BUMGARNER

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're "gonna go with that Bumgarner guy." Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.

WHISKEY WAR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.

DALLAS ZOO-GIRAFFE

DALLAS (AP) -- He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.

COYOTES-QUEENS ZOO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
