    "I’m more excited about the World Cup right now than anything else.”

    that kind of attitude will get you on the roster. :suspect:

    that kinda says he's not excited enough at the prospect of getting a real roster spot and not some practice squad gig again. he only has seen action in preseason and by being activated from the practice squad. With that #2 draft pick coming in and Brown/Henry/Fleming/Nash/others?... there is a whole thread about how thick the Titans are at RB ... I don't know, that's just a goofy thing to say, that World Cup is the biggest thing for him right now, since he's not really a legitimate NFL player ... saying things like that can lead to getting cut. There is nothing wrong with what he said, but as a coach you don't want to hear that from a fringe player, and that is what he is... It doesn't matter how long Jeff Fisher spent in a Bears uni. His favortism only goes so far and it's not like Payton hasn't had his opportunities. If I were Jeff Fisher I would want to hear that the #1 thing that Jared Payton is excited about is the prospect of winning a real roster spot. I'm sure Nash was pleased when he read this.

    Someone said that if you've been on the regular roster for 8 games or something like that you can't go back to the practice squad. If so, I think he was on the roster for close to that, and I don't think there's any way he makes the 53 this year...

    paraconspiracy -> No offense taken! You noticed how i didn't comment on the story myself?

    I actually agree with you 100%. We are bored! Personally I have no problem whatsoever with Payton being excited about the World Cup. I was too!
