My Thoughts on Day 6 of Titans Training Camp - 08/01/14

The MVP of Titans Training Camp so far?  Mother Nature.  And it isn't close.  She has been fantastic.  Another pleasant day weather-wise at St. Thomas Sports Park.  Pleasant considering we're talking about Nashville, Tennessee on August 1st. Anywho, let's talk about Day 6...

1)  Justin Hunter continues to make big plays.  No, he isn't as consistent as his coaches or teammates would like.  Yes, he is electric about 4-6 plays every practice.  And that number is growing.  Today, he caught yet another deep ball in a 1-on-1 drill for a touchdown.  And made a sweet grab over a defender for another score.  One of the victims?

2)  Tommie Campbell.  He's been getting torched all of training camp, especially deep.  Coach Ken Whisenhunt tried to downplay it when asked in the post-practice press conference, saying "games are what matter."  Campbell better hope so, because at this point, I can't see him making the team.

3)  Guys are looking forward to practicing at LP Field.  It won't be open to the public.  So there won't be any fans.  It doesn't matter.  Nearly every man in two-toned blue is eager to play in their home stadium.  It may be as simple as getting away from St. Thomas Sports Park for a day.  It may be because it's a night practice.  Whatever.  They're pretty pumped about it.

4)  Bishop Sankey will be getting a majority of the touches in the Titans backfield sooner, rather than later.  He's already working with the starters at least 50% of the time.  My guess is that will only increase as the season goes on.  If you're looking for a sleeper running back in your fantasy football league, Sankey may be your guy. 

That's it for today.  I'll let you know what happens at LP Field tomorrow.

LENA DUNHAM WANTS PROPOSAL

NEW YORK (AP) -- "Girls" star Lena Dunham wants to be a married lady. The creator of the HBO comedy tweets to her boyfriend Jack Antonoff to, "Get on it, yo..." The New York Post reports the couple had pointedly said they wouldn't get married until everyone had the right to marry in the U.S. Dunham's public message to her main squeeze follows the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that same-sex couples can get hitched in all 50 states.

MILITARY FAMILIES-ZOO

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Members of the military and their families are getting a zoo thank-you. Columbus Zoo officials say active-duty service members and veterans will be able to visit the zoo in central Ohio for free this week. It's in recognition of their sacrifices in service to the country. The zoo freebie starts today and continues through the fifth. Spouses and kids of service members will get in free, too.

CONFEDERATE FLAG-ICE CREAM SHOP

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- It's not our flag. That's what the new owners of a South Carolina ice cream shop are saying. There's a Confederate battle flag in front of the Edisto River Creamery in Orangeburg. Owners Tommy and Debbie Daras tell the Times and Democrat, the flagpole sits on a tiny parcel of land deeded to the Sons of the Confederate Veterans. Now, the Daras say they are getting threats and angry messages, over a Confederate flag which they can't do anything about.

GUAM SEAL CHANGES

AGANA, Guam (AP) -- There's a goof on the flag of Guam. Jose Martinez is one of those pointing out a mistake on the flag and seal of the U.S territory. The flag depicts a flying proa, a type of outrigger canoe. Martinez is the secretary of Traditions Affirming our Seafaring Ancestry. He says the outrigger is on the wrong side. He adds if canoes were built that way they wouldn't sail and compares it to drawing a car with triangle wheels. Martinez tells the Pacific Daily News the flag should be fixed.
