    What the Titans asked Nash to do was pretty basic: show up for camp in shape and at the recommended weight.

    They didn't give up on him because they thought he had no talent; they cut him loose because they couldn't count on him mentally. Those issues dated back to last training camp.

    And he went to a team that was willing to use a third round pick on Clarett last year, convinced they could help him turn the corner mentally. Maybe they will fare better with Nash, especially after the Titans gave him a wake-up call that maybe he really needed to get it through his head that you do have to do your part to stay in this league.

    What did the Broncos have to lose? And why should the Titans keep trying when they had a pretty good stable of backs in camp (plus a second-round draft pick who was guaranteed to get a close look in camp even if he was off to a slow start in the spring) who had put in the work this offseason and deserved their shot at getting those reps?

    They got Nash, Bell, Bell, Dayne

    Good God Roll, do you want to sign Kevin Faulk to a multi year deal cos he tore us up?

    He's played one pre-season game....yes I know to some that defines a season of how bad or good a player/team will be...but sheesh, with Chris Brown, LenDale White and Henry, Nash is just as buried in the depth in Tennessee then in Denver.

    Gunny...

    Have a little vision will ya. In 2007 we will probably not have brown. We may no longer consider travis henry a reliable enough option behind white. Nash could have been that option.

    The future gunny the future!

    And gunny please tell your God reynaldo to grow a pair. Every WR over 200lbs abuse him as if he dropped the soap in a maximum security prison.

    You just made the argument against yourself. Nash won't run like that against teams in the reqular season when it counts. Why do you try to pretend we cut the second coming of Walter Payton, just because he had a good night against our 2nd and 3rd string team a mile high?

    I've seen players like this before, and as far as I'm concerned they can pack their bags and leave now. I don't want anybody on my team who isn't going to do what it takes to win. And that includes being in shape (i thought he looked heavy last saturday), getting to practice on time, and having a good attitude/work ethic. And I'm sure the coaches and players feel the same way.

    Hoffa get a clue...

    Second coming of walter payton? I suggested he might help as a backup. Can't you follow a simple concept?
