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.

JETS-REX-BUMGARNER

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're "gonna go with that Bumgarner guy." Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.

WHISKEY WAR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.

DALLAS ZOO-GIRAFFE

DALLAS (AP) -- He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.

COYOTES-QUEENS ZOO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
