Emmit Smith makes over 4 million a year as an old back past his prime. George will get his money from somewhere, his agent will convince someone he is worth it. And you coudlnt sign anyone for less that 3 times Rock and Ladells salary, they are on rookie onctracts and were late round picks, thats as low as your going to get.

Curmudgeon, you say the issue is Cost. True, but I would also argue that another issue is pride. I don't think Eddie George is ready to be a short-yardage, specialty back. At least I don't think he feels that way.

Eddie George is a class act. He should retire as a Titan.

I hope he takes a paycut to stay with them, or just retire. He was a class act and after so many years with that team why would he want to go somewhere else for a year or two.

George can still be an effective back in a limited role, I don't think he needs to retire just yet unlike someone like Emmitt who is clearly just hanging on, why I don't know.

The question is not cost, because Eddie George is not delusional. He knows he's not going to sign a big money contract this year, but he just is playing the game with the Titans. Last year the Titans asked a LB to restructure his contract, then proceeded to cut him. Eddie is taking a stand, he's not saying he's worth all this money but he is saying that he wants to be dealt with fairly. Whatever.

At the vet minimum, I'd love to see Eddie George in DC. He'd be like George Rogers, and it wouldn't matter if he only averaged 3.4 yds per carry because he'd only be in on 3rd and short anyway. Portis is the workhorse, EG would just be a veteran warrior to plug in while Portis catches a breather. At 6'3" and 240 he's a load and I'd love to see him running the 50 gut for us this fall.

I hope Sultan McCullah wins out as backup. He was one of the greatest running backs in college history yardage wise. And I thought he looked great last year. Hes cheap and on the roster. Either way we are all praying Portis stays healthy

I suspect that the odds are 50/50 that Sultan McGillicudy is one of the top ten running backs in the history of his school.

Quote:
CAREER: McCullough's 2,800 career yards put him eighth on USC's career rushing list (33rd on the Pac-10 list). He rushed for 100 yards 11 times in his career. He became the first Trojan since Charles White in 1977-79 to lead USC in rushing for 3 consecutive seasons.
So, not sucky, but not a college football history benchmark either.

Seriously, though. http://sultanmccullough.com?!?

I think Ron Dayne is somewhere near the top of the list for all-time college rushing yards and he's not exactly striking fear in any opponents at the NFL level

Barry Sanders im pretty sure averaged around 218 per game, not sure why that isnt up there.

Not to take away from LT though, I mean anyone that can rush for 400 yds at any level deserves some credit. Thats even impressive for Madden numbers

Actually, these numbers are for the year 2000, not all time.
