The debate for RB1 would have been close for Chris Johnson’s second best season, but obviously his historic 2009 campaign was too much for anyone in the NFL to compete with.
George was dominant in his time and managed to lead the league in both attempts and total touches from scrimmage in 2000, and played all 16 games and the playoffs. If that wasn’t enough of a feat in itself, this season paired with the 1999 season was the best two-year stretch in franchise history with 26 wins (and a Super Bowl appearance) in that time.
Much of that success gets attributed to Steve McNair, but it is easy to overlook just how important it was to have someone so effective and reliable running the ball.
This was a season to remember for the Titans for a number of reasons and easily stands out as the best season in Eddie George’s career.
