Nate Washington Likes what Ken Whisenhunt Brings to Titans

Posted by Gary Glenn on June 12, 2014 – 3:00 pm

Nate WashingtonNate Washington knows head coach Ken Whisenhunt better than anyone in the Titans’ locker room. The veteran wide receiver began his first four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2005-08), spending two seasons with Whisenhunt, who served as Pittsburgh’s offensive coordinator from 2004-06.

The pair was together when the Steelers won Super Bowl XL against the Seattle Seahawks.

So when asked Thursday about the style and approach Whisenhunt has brought the Titans, Washington didn’t hesitate.

“He understands what perfection looks like. He understands what a Super Bowl looks like. He understands what it’s going to take to move into the top tier of the NFL. He understands what it’s going to take for us to get to where we want to be, and that’s hoisting the Lombardi trophy at the end of the day.

“The requirements from him are going to be tough at times, but he will pat you on the back when you’ve done something well. He definitely has an expectation that’s going to be required of every guy in this locker room from the oldest to the youngest. Everyone has their weight to pull and he expects that to happen.

“He’s a guy that’s been there, done that. He’s played in this league, been a player that’s done some tremendous things in this league and also been a coach that’s made it to that top tier and hoisted the Lombardi and been there again as a head coach of a team. His expectation right now is much needed. There’s a lot of good feelings around this locker room right now and I’m excited about the opportunity we have this year to play under him.”
