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.

POT IN DC

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Pot becomes legal in the nation's capital tomorrow. District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser says the city will go ahead with a voter passed initiative to legalize the illegal weed. The move comes despite congressional attempts to block it. It will be legal for people 21 or older to possess up to 2 ounces of pot and grow up to three mature plants at home for personal use. But pot can't be legally sold in D-C. The city will not tax or regulate pot, steps that were explicitly banned by Congress. But the city could still face a legal challenge from Capitol Hill.

FIRE STATION WEDDING

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Captain Chuck Kramaric says his firefighters are a bunch of romantics. The crew at his suburban Washington firehouse came to the rescue -- when a couple needed to get hitched. Marc and Camille Bethea's wedding plans were snowed under over the weekend. He's a Marine Corps reservist about to be deployed. The venue where they were to be married had a roof collapse. A second venue canceled because the parking lot was snowed in and the pastor bowed out, too. A new pastor was lined up, who suggested the couple call area fire and police stations. Fire Station 105 in Arlington County agreed to host the wedding. One firefighter even hummed the wedding march. The new bride says the firefighters are her heroes.

OFFICIAL PET-UTAH

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Thanks to some fourth-graders, the golden retriever is a step closer to being Utah's official state pet. The Utah Senate approved the pet bill yesterday, which now goes to the state House. Students at South Jordan Daybreak Elementary learned the golden retriever was the most popular pet in Utah during a research assignment. The kids then prepared a list of reasons why the dog should be recognized. The list as given to their state representative.

BROWNS-NEW LOGO

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Orange is the new Browns -- and the old one too. The Cleveland Browns have updated their iconic logo, their orange helmets. The Browns are sticking with tradition, another orange helmet, but a little bolder than the old one. Some fans are expressing their disappointment on social media. But the team says fans looking for change should wait for the Browns new uniforms, to be unveiled April 14.
