    Wow didn't think I would have to clear this up...

    Nate's best season IS a good season for a #1 on any team. It was referred to as "decent"... but no it's actually a damn great season.

    His other seasons statistically place him between 32-64 (I think 2009 might've been 70 but it was close) which places him as a legit #2 WR.

    If a WR puts up numbers for 4 consecutive seasons that would place him in the top 60 WRs, why can't we just call him a #2 WR? What is wrong with that and what is wrong with giving him his fair due for his great season?


    Just telling it like it is.

    that's literally what I said in my post. I'm just not glorifying him as a could be #1 WR because of 1 good season.

    he's solid, consistent, and fine until the younger guys step up

    I'm not saying let's dump him (especially now considering we probably wouldn't use the money to sign someone else anyway) he's just a tad bit overrated on here. In his "great season" he didn't finish in the top 17 in any major category. Also I believe that's the year Britt went down for basically the year, someone had to catch the ball. Hell, Damian Williams actually contributed for the one year in his career.

    Yeah he's a solid WR, not sure what's being discussed at this point. I guess it's just the off season.

    i dont think he is overrated, he is a decent 1 that needs to be a 2 for sure. but since we dont have a great number one or 2 we should probably hold on to Nate

    All of this started when, and only when, it was reported that the team was shopping him. That sort of told us that the team thought that in some way, shape, or form he was expendable. None of this talk would have started had the trade rumblings never surfaced.

    Nobody was considering dumping Washington until the Titans told us they were. So we then begin to question why he's expendable, according to the organization. It comes out that the coaches weren't happy with his lack of effort, and we then think it safe to analyze and pick apart his play as a Titan. And some think he is in fact expendable, while others don't. But the fact is, the organization brought this debate on, not one segment of fans that have something against Nate Washington.

    And yes, I do believe the reports were accurate, but Ruston didn't get any interest, so he's still here. Even Jim Wyatt conceded that Nate was indeed available.

    I'm of the opinion that, if he keeps Damian Williams off the field, I'm for Nate staying this year. However next year, I believe they can let him go without owing him anything, so that may be when his time comes. His contract is not very favorable to the organization, but neither are CJ's, Griffin's, Wimbley's, or half of the free agents we signed this offseason.

    Re-read my initial post then because neither was I.

    All I said was that his best season is good enough season for a #1 WR on any team. What is wrong with that statement?

    Nate is not a No.1 WR

    and if he is, we got problems.
