Eddie George

Is anyone else keeping their fingers crossed that he doesn't sign with the cowboys or eagles? I know he's got a lot of mileage on his wheels, but I know I sure as heck wouldn't count him out just yet.

he was the sole offensive weapon for his first four or five seasons when the Titans didn't have anyone to throw to... he would carry upwards of 35+ every game where defenses knew he was getting the rock. his shelf life was considerably shortened after his first couple of seasons.

I hope he signs with the Cowboys or Eagles!! George's best years are behind him!! He would only eat up cap space!!!

I love Eddie George, he's a warrior. But the name Emmitt Smith comes to mind when I think of George now and I'm talking about Arizona Emmitt not Cowboy Emmitt

Eddie George IMO is the most overrated player in the NFL. He'll carry the ball 350 times a year and get about 1040 yards. I know he's getting older and has lost a few steps, but I still can't stand him.

In the first few years Stephen Davis was the starter for the Skins the top 3 rushers were Stephen Davis, Eddie George, and Edgerrin James (for yards over 3 seasons). He used to be a great back, but the Titans used him up.

that's why champ decided to go the CB route i guess... he said the RBs burn out way too fast. He also said jacobs was the best skins WR... I'm hoping thats true too.

I hope u guys r right, but we've heard about other guys being washed up before and they go to the right situation and they're top quality performers again. Plus for a guy who is "overrated" and "washed up" he sure did a hell of a job last year, especially in the playoffs against the ravens with a seperated shoulder I believe it was. He may not be the back he was 5-6 years ago, but I still sure as hell would rather not see him in an eagles or cowboys jersey.

maybe champ just didn't want to worry about all the extra weights and workouts required to bulk up enough to consistently play rb.

I hope he doesn't sign within the NFC east. Although I agree that his best years are behind him I do think he could go somewhere with another good back where he wouldn't have to carry 30+and do some serious damage, similar to the Davis with Foster in Carolina. Plus I still can't get the image of him trucking Ray Ray when they played the Ravens last year. I think with the motivation he has now he will create some problems if teamed with a young solid back like Westbrook or Jones.

I think thats a little bit different because emmit has been in the nfl 6 more years than george and smith went from playing behind once of the best offensive lines(I hate having to admit that), to playing behind a line that seemed to make last years blocking by the skins look like it was all-pro quality,lol.

Did you guys watch George in that crucial playoff game last year? Can't remember which one, but he showed real heart. I love the guy, but he's about done.

he's been released (asked to be cut loose and the titans agreed). he would like to be picked up by tampa, dallas, or philly.

heard this on comcast sports night a few minutes ago... also we've picked up something brewer, TE that played on the falcons... sorry i can't remember the specifics, I wasn't paing attention... do we really need another TE???
