It sounds like the Titans had a productive day of work against the Falcons today. Jim Wyatt and John Glennon, the real reporters from The Tennessean, wrote about it extensively here. Some of the high points included:
- Chris Johnson had a big day. Mike Munchak seems to be impressed with what he has seen from CJ so far in camp. Here is what he told Wyatt:
"There were some good lanes, and I think there has been the last three or four days," Munchak said. "It is still encouraging to see some guys staying on the blocks, and Chris had some great reads. The way he was hitting things, you don’t see hesitation. C.J. looked quick, he was hitting things decisively. When he decided to go outside he hit it hard and showed some speed around the edge. … I thought all the backs looked like they ran well."-It sounds like both quarterbacks had a pretty good day. Lavelle Hawkins told Wyatt that the offense will be really scary when they start showing what they can really do:
"We won," Hawkins said with a smile. "We put a whipping on those boys, and we did basic stuff. Imagine when we put our real stuff in."
-There isn't anything about Mike Martin in the write up from the real reporters at The Tennessean, but Mike Keith and the 3HL guys were raving about Mike Martin on the radio when I was driving home this afternoon. I am really excited to see what he does in a real game.
-Keith also talked about how good Sen'Derrick Marks has been in camp. It sounds like he is pretty much a lock to make this roster, which means Shaun Smith is probably gone.
-Colin McCarthy is a stud, but you already knew that.
