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.

ESCALATOR-PANTS

SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) -- It's awfully cold in the Boston area to go without pants. Transit officials say a commuter riding the "T" lost his trousers to an escalator. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority tells the Boston Herald the man's pants got caught in the escalator. The commuter wasn't hurt, but he was left standing in his shorts while his trousers were stuck at the bottom of the escalator. Transit officials are urging commuters to be mindful of loose clothing.

DOG BREEDS-NYC

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Big Apple is giving little Frenchies some love. The French bulldog is now the most popular breed in New York City. The American Kennel Club says the flat-faced, bat-eared little dogs move past the bulldog to the top spot. The AKC says the rest of the top five in NYC are Labrador retrievers, German shepherds and golden retrievers. Nationally, Labs stay number-one for a record 24th year.

COCA-COLA BOTTLE

ATLANTA (AP) -- It's the real thing -- but is it real art? The curvy Coca-Cola bottle is being celebrated by an Atlanta art museum. The High Museum is opening an exhibit tomorrow to mark the 100th anniversary of the iconic Coke bottle. Visitors will be able to see original designs, a prototype of the 1915 bottle and the work of artists who have been inspired by the now-classic bottle. "The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100" runs through October 4.

NEW BABY ORCA

SEATTLE (AP) -- Scientists are seeing the splash of little whale fins. A third baby orca has been spotted off the coast of Washington state. Brad Hanson, a biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says the baby killer whale looks great and is very active. It's the third baby born to whale pods in recent months in the area. But the experts warn the orca population is still dangerously low.
