You better gobble this up because this is going to be the last on the field football news for about a month. Jim Wyatt has his practice observations from the final OTA up.
Here is some fantastic news:
Quarterback Vince Young went out with a bang during the team's last practice until training camp, and was praised by head coach Jeff Fisher for his work.
“Today really tells the whole story. His eyes downfield, picking up the deep receiver, his accuracy in the plus territory. His footwork today was excellent,’’ Fisher said of Young's improvement this offseason. “He had a great day.’’
Afterward, Young said he plans to take some time to get away from football, but not a lot.
He invited a group of receivers to work with him in Houston next week, something he also did last year. He hopes it will keep them stay in rhythm, and help their chemistry. Justin Gage and Biren Ealy are among those who’ve already committed to making the trip, while others were looking at their schedule. On the last look at the Titans before training camp, a pair of receivers named Williams stood out.
We are going to see Vince Young make a lot of progress under Mike Heimerdinger. I am really excited about the numbers he is going to put up this season.
Paul Williams made a pair of great catches, one in the end zone when he took the ball away from a defender. Later, he caught a touchdown pass from Kerry Collins. No doubt the guy is talented.
Mike Williams continues to travel down the right path. While his conditioning level remains an issue, he looks good and has been mostly consistent catching the ball. Williams went up high to get a ball on Friday, an athletic move he couldn’t have made when he was 30 pounds heavier last year.
There is life from the Paul Williams camp. I cannot wait to watch this receiver battle in camp.
As much as the Titans throw tight end Alge Crumpler in the red zone in practices, it’s looking like he could score a lot of touchdowns this fall.
The Titans were terrible in the red zone last season. The addition of Crumpler should change that.
