Nate Jackson on Vic & Gary right now, providing a little insight into McDaniels the person. Said he was told he was cut by someone else in the organization, when he called McD for clarification he never returned his calls. Also said he's not the only former Bronco with the same story.

"Josh is a douche" was the first thing out of his mouth

Josh was worried Nate would suffer a season ending injury answering the phone

NFL teams bring 80 some odd players into camp every year. I doubt the HC personally notifies every single one who gets released. Maybe an old vet being put out to pasture. Just because Shanny inexplicably let Nate "Hamstring" Jackson's useless ass stay on the roster for years does not mean he was an important enough player that he should have given the red carpet trreatment out of town.

He's going into the Hillis & Cutler debacles after the break. This has been pretty interesting to listen to.

I agree with this....

Nate always seems whiney....still enjoying this though.

The guy was on the team for years, whether he was a star or not, the head coach needs to man up and tell him why he was released. Other Broncos got the exact same treatment from McD.

No he doesn't. Its a business. If Nate Jackson seriously doesn't know why he was released he's an idiot.

Its the NFL, not pee wee football. You don't get a hug and sunshine blown up your ass for losing a job in any competitive industry, why should you in the NFL?

Nate's lucky he's never had to work a real job and Shanny carried him long enough to get into the NFL's pension program.

Nate first started telling this story around the sports radio circuit 2 years ago. I'm sure there are probably 2 other threads about it.

Who cares what happened to Nate Jackson. If Shanny wouldn't have been so loyal to ****ty players it wouldn't even matter.

How about an update as to what he is saying or better yet a link to the interview.

My wife used to work at a company, which I won't name, and one day one of her co-workers found out she had been laid off when two security guards came to her desk, gave her ten minutes to gather her things, logged her off her computer, and then escorted her out of the building. And that was just a lay off. I guess if they fire you it's samurai swords or something.

It's pretty standard practice in the NFL, Tony Dungy is the only coach that I know of that personally let every player go. He's the exception, not the rule.

Anyone ask Nate if Shanahan personally cut Mustard every week? Or did he just tell him at the beginning of the season "Hey Chad, we're going to cut you about 8 times this year, but don't worry about it, we'll resign you each time."

I wouldn't bother calling Nate Jackson either. How did that guy ever collect an NFL paycheck?

Because Bill Walsh once made the off-hand comment that Jackson would be a good NFL player.

A lot of people are making a lot of assertions here, but my understanding - and backup'd by documentary evidence - is that even when scrubs are cut at the end of camp, they typically get a quick meet and fire from the coach.

Billick always told them personally on Hard Knocks. I think I remember Herm doing the same.

It probably wouldn't matter much if Nate chose to take the high road. Instead he chooses to talk about these things and grind his axe.

He seems to love controversy.

Sure, in camp. Where that coaching staff picked you, signed you, has been working with you, and might be calling you up again in a few weeks or months if someone gets injured.

Nate Jackson never met Josh McDaniels or any of the new coaches we had working with his position in '09. No connections were there, he didn't know the system and he didn't fit the system.

This is the equivalent of a sales rep throwing a fit when his company is bought out and the new company president doesn't personally notify him that he's done.

Rub the two brain cells you have together. I'm sure the answer will be obvious to you like it is to everyone else.
