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.
