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...

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.
