    The guy has become a legitimate starting receiver in this league. Every time we think he's too hurt to play, he's still out there giving it his all.

    He's a warrior and has become one of my favorite Titans.

    Congrats on a 1,000 yard season, Nate!

    Proud to say I've always liked him even when everyone didn't. Welcome to the bandwagon lol. Only wish I had gotten his jersey this year when I was shopping for a new one. I couldn't pass up a Hasselbeck jersey with the price I got it for. Eh, oh well.

    Nate coming back,Britt is healthy again and we draft or bring in another WR in free agency we could look really good at that position next season.

    No!!!! I have always liked him too.

    I was always the one confused when everyone continuously bashed him. He made one terrible drop against the Colts two seasons ago... and that's all people remember.

    I wanted us to sign him in the 2009 offseason, and no one even knew who he was... I was stoked when we got him.

    Yeah, I was defending him going into the season and was happy to see him seriously step up his game. The team had a lot of guys to be happy about this season...

    I remember shaking his hand at the Hall of Fame game. It was like putting your hand in a bear trap.

    Funny story though. I have a friend who played DB for Ohio Dominican which is in the same division as Tiffin. He actually lined up against Washington and keep in mind Ohio Dominican had won a championship so he and the team was really good. Anyway he lined up against Washington and said he got burnt every time. He was lining 10 yards off the line and still getting beat deep. He went to the sidelines and told his team, "Sorry guys I'm trying my best but I can't keep up with this guy." Funny stuff.

    Man, you're getting all the high 5's today..

    Reason being, is because you know what you're talking about.

    I really wish I had Nate's number right now, because I would personally let him know that he played awesome this year, and he literally put the Titans on his back this year.

    Huge props to Nate, and I can't wait to see him get even better next year.

    I agree, he has proven himself this year. I was at that Colts game when he had the horrible drop so that's what I thought of him for a long time. But this year, he hasn't played great every game but he has consistently been out best receiver and has kept going back into the game while visibly injured. If we ever get a full season out of Britt, he and Washington could be a pretty great 1 - 2 combo.

    Agreed. Nate Washington really stepped up this season, and I'll be proud to cheer for him as a starter next season.

    Hopefully Britt stays healthy to compliment him.
