Wintry Mix, Light Snow Possible


Thoughts from Day 2 of Titans Training Camp - 07/27/14

Today was supposed to be awful.  Miserable.  Hot.  Hotter.  Hottest.  But once again, Mother Nature cut everyone at St. Thomas Sports Park a break.  It was still warm.  It was also windy.  VERY WINDY.  And that made things very interesting, especially for the quarterbacks.  That being said...

1)  Jake Locker threw the ball well once again.  Especially the deep ball.  Locker showed great touch and accuracy, something he's been criticized for (and rightfully so) in the past.

2)  The rest of the quarterbacks DID NOT.  Charlie Whitehurst, Zach Mettenberger and Tyler Wilson all floated and sailed balls for most of practice.  Whitehurst in particular struggled.  His lack of arm strength caused big problems.  Whitehurst had a couple of  interceptions and should have had several more.

3)  Damian Stafford opened some eyes.  He had an interception and a nice pass break-up.  Stafford is a long-shot to make the team.  Days like this are huge for him.

4)  The Titans are eager to put on the pads.  Several guys, including Coach Ken Whisenhunt, talked about be anxious and excited to play what they call "real football."  And that means pads.  Tomorrow, they'll get their wish.  They will also have a short turn around (morning practice following an afternoon practice).  So that means tempers may flare up.  We just might have our first fight...

SUPER BOWL-FIRE ALARM

CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn't losing any sleep -- at least not when the fire alarm goes off. The New England Q-B says he didn't hear an alarm sounding for the second time in three nights at the team hotel. Brady adds that he slept through the false alarm yesterday morning. The Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa says the alarm was caused by a stairwell smoke head and was being investigated. There was another false alarm at the hotel on the team's first night there. The Patriots play the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

SUPER BOWL-NEW DAD

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Seahawks' Richard Sherman has more on his mind than the Super Bowl. He's about to become a father for the first time. The Seattle cornerback says he's thought about the possibility the baby could be born Sunday, the day of the Super Bowl. Sherman and his girlfriend know they're having a son. Sherman says the little guy will do his dad a favor and wait until after the big game to come into the world.

PUPPY BOWL-KITTIE BOWL

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sunday, you have your choice: Patriots versus Seahawks or kitties versus puppies. The Hallmark Channel will be presenting Kitten Bowl II. Aside from fulfilling the cute quotient, the Kitten Bowl promotes the adoption of shelter animals. Animal Planet has Puppy Bowl 11, the show that started the Super Bowl Sunday cute animal trend. Fish aren't being left out, either. Nat Geo WILD channel will have Fish Bowl II. Viewers can't enough of puppies, kitties and even fishies. Last year's Puppy Bowl drew 13.5 million viewers, while the Kitten Bowl was watched by a million.

SUPER BOWL-PROGNOSTICATING LION

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Lions aren't in the Super Bowl -- so the Utah lion shouldn't be biased. Vulcan is a lion at Salt Lake City's Hogle Zoo. He's picking the Patriots to win the Super Bowl. Vulcan is taking over the prognostication duties from the Utah ape who predicted seven straight Super Bowl winners. Eli the orangutan died in September. Zookeepers say Vulcan showed no hesitation in picking up a papier-mache helmet with the Patriots logo. He ignored the Seahawks helmet.
