Philly is his home town and they have picked up all the pieces they believe are missing to make a super bowl run so maybe since he doesn't have much left he would go there and sign for a few years at a low money contract with alot of incentives similar to what the Titans wanted to give him.

If he's used correctly I think he can still be a valuable contributor for someone.

He's not an every down back anymore, but if he's used in a limited role and sees 10-15 touches per game he can still be effective. I wouldn't want to face him simply because the guy is a warrior and always comes to play.

You can bet he's going to play this season with a chip on his shoulder too.

I'm just glad that we're not the kind of team who would ever invest a lot of money into an over the hill former pro bowler based solely on name recognition.*

I'm in favor of him signing with PHI or DAL. He's on the downslide.

I just read that Dallas would not be interested in George. I think he's going end up in Philly.....

I heard Ed Werder on ESPN radio a little while ago saying that a deal with George and the Cowboys is very close to being done.

I know a lot of people want to write him off, but I'm tellin' ya, George is going to be out to prove the Titans wrong. In a platoon type situation I think he can still be very valuable, especially when your only other option is an unproven rookie.

i don't think he'll prove the titan's wrong. They know he can still help win games, they just don't think his production met his salary expectations. And I bet he'll get less money in dallas than he could has with the titans...

he's gonna get the same base salary but there will also be incentives in the contract to possibly bump it up. plus tennessee's offer was essentially a one year offer and he wanted atleast a 2-3 year deal.
I hope all u eddie george-doubters r right, but I have a pretty strong feeling u'll all be eating some crow come the end of this season. plus what better rb on the market could the cowboys find to help tutor their rookie jones? this could help out the cowboys in multiple ways and this would definitely help their main weakness.

I have to admit that the people who post here confuse me more than once in a while.

George is "over the hill" and will "eat up cap space" and isn't worth the time of day. FYI, one reported offer to him is a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with incentives that might take the contract value up to $1M

On the other hand, Rock Cartwright is a valuable commodity.

Assuming that Cartwright and George will both be "fill-ins" this year - and remember we are only talking about "this year" because it is unlikely that any team will give George a long term deal with a big signing bonus that would have any cap implications - why is Rock the better running back?

Should the Skins sign George? No. They are already well stocked with people who can give Clinton Portis a rest for a series or two a game.

Is George the same back he has been for the past 5 seasons? Not even close.

Is George such a ridiculous signing by an NFL team that they should worry that they will be compared to the Skins for signing Deion or Jeff George? I doubt it.

Just a GUESS, but I THINK he'll wind up in Dallas when all is said and dong.

I don't know if anyone is necessarily saying that Rock is the better back. I think what is being said is that George's best days are behind him and what Rock has is upside and the promise of a solid future in the NFL

I wouldn't like going against Eddie for two games a year. He is old and probably way past his prime but he is a warrior. The postseason game against Baltimore he had a good game against a team who probably has the best defense in the league. He would get drilled and come back and destroy someone else or get drilled again. I just remember the times he and Ray Ray would collide and they would get up and start yelling at each other. There aren't too many players who don't get flustered after getting hit by Ray Ray.

latest news is he's going to dallas for the same offer he refused to accept from the titans, but it'll probably end up as two years instead of one... so, we'll see exactly how good he is twice this year i guess...

The impending Eddie George signing by Dallas reminds me of another (more expensive) signing a few years ago.

Deion Sanders.

One of the stated reasons we went so hard after Deion was that we didn't wan't to see him with a division rival. If Dallas signed him we would face him twice a year again, and that was too much.

With Dallas "on the rise", I think they can't stand to see Philadelphia improve - which the George signing would do for that team. I think George helps the Cowboys (who need to work their rookie) less than it helps the Eagles (who would complete their backfield committee), but the Cowboys don't want the Eagles any better, so they are paying.

Either way, if our defense is up to par, the signing shouldn't hurt us too badly. George is a three yard per carry back, who has durability concerns.
