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.

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) -- Dan Crossley has the "Best Cruiser on the Beach." And that's from a guy who knows. Crossley's 1957 Ford Ranchero wins a vintage car contest in Biloxi, Mississippi. One of the judges was Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys. Johnston jokes he might have been a bit biased. He tells The Sun Herald he used to have a Ford Ranchero when he was first learning how to surf. The car contest was part of the "Cruisin' the Coast" festival.


DALLAS (AP) -- Remember the Alamo -- because it's going to change. The Texas landmark is getting a makeover that will cost at least $48 million. The 18th-century former Spanish mission was the centerpiece in the battle for Texas independence from Mexico. The state is buying nearby commercial buildings and hiring a firm to develop a master plan for the area. Tourist draws like Ripley's Haunted Adventure may have to relocate. Critics say Alamo-related attractions need to focus more on San Antonio as a cultural and commercial gateway.


LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Two Las Vegas women could find themselves in the doghouse -- for swiping dog food. Michael Perez says thieves took dog food that had been meant for needy pups. Perez says he volunteers at animal shelters so people often leave donations on his porch. KTNV-TV reports Perez posted video on Facebook that shows two women taking the dog food and pet toys. He hasn't filed a police report. But the video has been viewed more than 27,000 times and shared nearly 600 times on Facebook.


HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) -- Three alligators and 8 turtles. That's the take as authorities on New York's Long Island held an amnesty event for people who own illegal exotic animals. The creatures were turned over to the Suffolk County SPCA. The people who turned them in won't be prosecuted. Chief Roy Gross of the local SPCA says the three alligators were all about three feet long and healthy.
