Temperatures Reach Hottest of Summer Tuesday

Temperatures Reach Hottest of Summer Tuesday

Temperatures reached into the low 90's and with high humidity the Titans had their hottest practice of camp on Tuesday.

As the Titans prepare for their third preseason contest, the one that will have the starters playing their most snaps of the preseason, the temperature and humidity did their part to help the team prepare.

"This is what camp should have been like the whole time," said Ken Whisenhunt. "It wasn't, but it was nice to get one of these days and work through it."

Some of the players might not agree with that comment.

Brian Schwenke, who is from Oceanside, California, and in his second season with the Titans was somewhat humorous about the heat.

"It was rough but it was really good for us to go out there like this," said Schwenke. "The defense did a great job of showing up and working through the heat. The offense, we had some mental mistakes and that is what you want to fight through, you want to go out there and even when you are tired to do what you are supposed to do and play with good technique.

I think it's a good challenge for us as much as I didn't enjoy it, I'm glad we went through it," concluded Schwenke.

Michael Oher, who is from Tennessee and played at Ole Miss was used to this.

"It was kind of humid outside but I'm used to hot, humid days," said Oher. "Growing up in Tennessee and going to Ole Miss this is nothing new.

For his part defensive tackle Al Woods though today was pleasant.

"I'm from Louisiana," said Woods. "Today was technically a cool day for me. I'm used to 99 degrees with a hundred percent humidity and no wind to move the air so you are just sitting there.

"It was definitely a good indicator to find out if you could handle the heat," continued Woods. "If you can sustain mental capacity in tough situations like this, it was a good test today." The Titans will face the continued heat as the forecast for the remainder of the weeks looks like the heat and humidity are going to be here for a while longer.
