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!

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.
