    Is it just me, or do you all think Nate needs to be a bigger part of our passing game?

    For the last 3 years he has been a consistent player, making clutch catches when it counts.

    He is a classy proven vet and leader, who never really got his chance in Pittsburgh or Tennessee to be a #1 or even a #2 WR. Sure we have loads of 1, 2, & 3 year old rooks with loads of potential, but maybe Nate can show them how its done with class.

    What do you all think here?

    He had 1/3 of Lockers completed passes. He's clutch, but it can also make us more one-dimensional to focus more on him.

    I'd rather target Walker, Wright and Hunter a tad more, make us more unpredictable.

    Absolutely. Ol Mr. reliable. All he does is catch first downs, and keep drives alive with massive consistency. Also one of the best deep threats on the team. Lock him up until he is too old to produce. Jmo.

    I think nate may be our most solid free agent signing at least that I could think of since coming to Tennessee...but I like his role how it is...spread the wealth, look to him for sure first downs, get youngins involved.

    Nate is a tad inconsistent, its best to not force the ball to him.

    Nah, spread the ball around.

    If Jake focuses on Nate and throws to him exclusively, I fear Nate will lose his "bail-out" WR status. Defenses would cover him more and Jake would need to find another to bail him out.

    a tad inconsistent Is much better than mr. dropsies #18, and Kendall wright who never catches a ball more than 5 yards past the LOS.

    Nope. I think it is about right. Not too much and not too little. What needs to happen is getting Kenny out of the starting lineup.

    Yeah I understand them thinking Kenny will break out of this funk, but if it doesn't happen REAL soon, they should sit him imo. I'm with the coaches though. If they keep putting him out there as often as they have been, they must believe he'll play better. Munch knows how important this season is to Bud.
