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.
