Hell I wish Nate well (except against us)....lol I don't blame him for seeking the pay day he wants....He was solid WR for the Steelers but his loss only hurts the depth......Sweed needs to step up and feel the third WR role anyways.....I'm excited to see Sweed development....The Steelers still should draft a WR or maybe bring in a cheap vet......
I wish Nate well. im just glad i dont have to scream at the tv "CATCH THE FU*KIN BALL NATE" ever again!!! I have to agree with Ktrain, nates gonna get lost in the shuffle in TEN. He isnt a game changer by any means, and they didnt have a phenominal passing game either. I see a very Randle-El-esk career in his future... minus the return yards!!!

Here's to us drafting Derrick Williams in the second round to immediately be head and shoulders better than nate ever was with us!!! Not to mention the stage being set for Limas
It will be fun smacking Nate around on opening night at Heinz Field during the Super Bowl celebration if the Titans are indeed the week 1 opening night opponent here.

two words: RYAN CLARK!!! God what i would give to see a Wes Welker type hit on Nate!!!
If you read the transcript from the Nate Washington press conference toward the middle of the link posted above he was quoted as saying he was pretty much leaving Pittsburgh to come to Pittsburgh since the situation in Tennessee is pretty much the same thing as Pittsburgh. Well there are a few differences Nate. You signed with Tennessee for 4 years 16 million because the Steelers wouldnt give you a sniff of that kind of money. Also, the Steelers have a legit chance to win a Super Bowl in 2009. The Titans despite their great run of 13-3 this past season I believe has no chance to win the Super Bowl in 2009

Teams just never learn do they. Super Bowl champ ARE went to Redskins, what has he done..nothing. Thigpen before that like BR7 said. Now Nate...the Steelers are the premier front office in the league. They know when a player is or isn't worth the money and if he is they are willing to pony up the dough. If the Steelers don't think Nate is worth 16m then sure go ahead TN, overpay him and you'll find out!
