Thoughts from Day 5 of Titans Training Camp - 07/31/14

Like the Titans, I had a day off (actually two) so I missed a couple of practices.  And like the Titans, I'm back with my observations from training camp.  Here's what I noticed today:

1)  The guys really needed that day off.  Several players talked about being refreshed and rejuvenated following their first day off.  It didn't sound like many of them did a whole lot either.  Plenty of sleeping and off their feet.  Which brings me to my next observation...

2)  "Camp Legs" are starting to set in.  Coach Ken Whisenhunt talked about it in his post-practice press conference.  Players are getting rubber legs at this point.  Fatigue and exhaustion are beginning to take a toll.  It will be interesting to see when the Titans push past that stage, which is common in training camps at all levels.

3)  Players are getting feisty.  We're now in Day 3 of pads.  Guys are sick of hitting and getting hit.  This morning, Derel Walker and Bernard Pollard got into it.  My guess is you'll see more fights in upcoming days.  Especially if the temperature heats up.

4)  The Titans can't wait to hit someone in another color jersey.  The practice with the Atlanta Falcons in Georgia cannot come soon enough.  It's actually Monday.  The players are counting down the days.

5)  The Titans continue to take their shots down the field.  It almost seems like all the QB's have been given instructions that if the first read isn't there, throw it deep. It seems to be working.  There were numerous long completions this morning, from guys at all levels of the depth chart. 

That's what stood out to me today.  Back at it tomorrow at 2:50!

CHRIS CHRISTIE

LIVINGSTON, NJ (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is going back to his old high school gym today. It's for a political workout. Christie is officially entering a crowded Republican field for the presidential nomination. He'll be the 14th candidate to announce, with at least two more expected to join. Chistie will make his announcement at Livingston High School, where he once won a presidential election. But that was for class president.

PRE-CIVIL WAR BASEBALL CARD

NEW YORK (AP) -- It's worth a lot more than your old baseball cards. A card from the 1860s is going up for auction in a month. The pre-Civil War Brooklyn Atlantics team card has been in the same family for over 150 years. The seller is Florence Sasso, of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Her great-great-uncle, Archibald McMahon, was an outfielder for the squad. He's pictured in the photo with eight teammates. Heritage Auctions estimates it could go for $50,000.

CALIFORNIA CHEERLEADERS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Pro cheerleaders are professionals. That's the gist of legislation passed by California lawmakers. The measure makes it clear that cheerleaders are employees of sports teams. It would require the teams to pay their cheerleaders at least the minimum wage. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez says many teams treat their cheerleaders like glorified volunteers. The San Diego Democrat adds that cheerleaders deserve the same level of respect and dignity as other team employees. The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature.

GREEK YOGURT-SCHOOLS

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- School kids will have a yogurt option beginning this fall. Chobani says its Greek yogurt has been tapped by the feds as a meat substitute for school lunches. The U.S. Department of Agriculture selected Chobani after a successfull pilot program. Greek yogurt is a thicker style yogurt that has twice the protein of traditional yogurts and uses hormone-free milk.
