    The weight issue kind of makes this comment from his Titans Online profile seem funny...

    "The compact, shifty runner possesses excellent balance and good field vision, allowing him to slice through tight rushing lanes"

    Hit it while you can!

    Weight problem is a joke. I mean an NFL player can lose almost 5 pounds either way every day. So that's just an excuse to unload him. Like someone said, White played his rose bowl overweight, and then everyone says maybe that is his best playing weight. Oh he lost weight. Oh he gained weight. It's all kind of a joke to me. Chris Browns weight gain is ok. But Nash is detrimental. Good or bad weight gain is a joke at this level. 15 pounds is nothing. It would be gone before 2-3 weeks if not less. Maybe 20-30 lbs you say ok I've got a problem because he won't be ready for the season opener. I think he got cut for other reasons.

    How telling...

    "As players make their way to and from the cafeteria for lunch during summer practice, they wear shirts featuring the word TEAM in large print, with a conspicuously smaller ME below it. Nash is gone..."

    And another from that article...

    “People have begun to kind of pick up on the program, accepting it and embracing it,” Simpson said. “We got rid of a few of our problem childs, and it’s pretty much good now. Attitudes have changed around here.”

    The issue here is the attitude not the weight. How can u show up to camp out of shape and overweight, knowing that there are 3 rb´s fighting for the starting spot and 3 more to make the team. :irked:

    Nash had no chance but....

    He could have done some things that would have given other teams a reason to consider him. Showing up 20lbs overweight with poor aerobic conditioning won't impress anyone. What if we end up trading brown after?

    For the titans it is a nice message.


    The difference between an average paycheck vs the nfl minimum is pretty significant. Even for a college graduate which nash is not. It says a lot about him and none of it good...
