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!

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION-POLL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis. The Washington Post survey finds District of Columbia residents favor legalizing pot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. The ballot issue is being put to voters in the November election. But even if it passes, Congress could block the pot initiative from taking effect.

CLEMSON-SEX SURVEY

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.

WHEEL OF FORTUNE WIN

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on "Wheel of Fortune." The episode aired earlier this week. She's just the third person to win more than a mil on the long-running game show. Manchester says she's "soaking in every minute" of the big win. She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.

VIDEO GAME MUSEUM

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
