Default Nate Washington

I am really pulling for Nate Washington, I hope he makes the team.... at least the practice squad. He looked good in camp when I was there, and he obviously looked good last night.

Washington is from a small school near where I live called Tiffin. and a lot of my high schools best athletes go to play there. Nate owns nearly every team record, and many conference and division recieving records. He rewrote the Dragon's receiving record book.....

Washington is the record-holder for receiving yards in a career (4,214), touchdown receptions in a career (47), receptions in a career (212), receptions in a game (13), receiving yards in a game (299), receptions in a season (70), receiving yards in a season (1,428) and touchdown receptions in a season (16).

"He's the best player to ever play at Tiffin University," Dragons coach Nate Cole told the Toledo Blade. "He's probably one of the best wide receivers ever to play at the Division II level. He was just unbelievable as far as playing at this level."

Cowher had good things to say about him, but I just dont know if he can make more than the practice squad, unless he shines on special teams....I really think they'll keep morey on the team for that. That leaves Cobb and Washington to choose for a 6th WR. You know Ward, Randle El, Wilson, Gibson, should be the four WR's, then I feel Morey gets a spot based on Special Teams alone...so between Cobb and Washington I think, its nice to have competition like that.

Washington did look good when I was at camp as well. I would like to see him stay around. I think for this year he could make the practice squad. I don't think he will break any higher or atleast not for right now.

Walter Young is in the mix at WR as well. He has had a good camp and is the biggest receiver on the team.

I am sick of all the specialists on our roster. It is always like this.... I think Cowher just likes these guys and thinks they are valuable because that is all his NFL career amounted too, was a good special teamer. it is a joke, does any other team have 4 specialist not including kickers or punters (Chidi, Morey, Kriewaldt, Schneck). This is ridiculous he might as well bring in a fifth QB that cant play lick, but is a great holder.

Do you guys think that Ike, McFadden, and Rian Wallace for example, couldn't run down the feild and hit, or tackle someone just as well if not better than these specialists?

I think it is a wasted spot.... I relize that a guy playing in Morey's #5 WR spot, or Chidi's #5 CB spot would make little impact and barely see the feild in 2006. Cowher is getting more out of the roster spot in 06 by using Morey, but I think we lose out on guys that could be special, but need a few seasons to blossom.

A guy I work with played with him in college and he told us to watch out for him. I was very impressed with what I saw from him last night.

i would cut schneck to be able to keep an extra WR this year. he is by far the biggest waste of a roster spot for the team.

Ya know, when you start picking out which player has to go, and you hate to part with any of them (Alonzo the main exception), that means your scouting department and team executives (Collbert) are doing a pretty good job.

As I was watching the game last night I kept thinking this team has a boatload of young talent developing that's going to to keep us very competitive for years to come. I haven't been this impressed since the 70's.

You`ve got to be joking. A long snapper is a must. And he is a damn good one.
