How does any Tennessee Titans fan describe Eddie George? Resilient? Tough? Classy? Heisman Trophy winner? Sure, all of those things apply, but as another week passes, and fans of this great team and fans of the Tennessee State Tigers celebrate his latest achievement (he’s now the head coach of the latter), football fans from The Volunteer State have George on their minds a lot these days.

It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old. Eddie still puts a smile on everyone’s face, and now, if you’re wanting to get a look at him, you need only head to another part of the great city of Nashville to see one of the greatest players and men to ever wear Tennessee’s jersey.

Okay Tennessee Titans fans, let’s talk numbers.

George’s career is about more than just statistical data. Still, we live in a world where people love numbers and play Fantasy football, so here are a few that might tickle the fancy. George won the Heisman Trophy, the Maxwell Award, the Doak Walker Award among other honors, and was named a Unanimous All-American after being named the Big Ten’s Most Valuable Player and the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year in 1995.

The Houston Oilers drafted him 14th-overall in 1996 before eventually becoming the Tennessee Oilers and, of course, the Tennessee Titans. That worked out pretty well for them as George went on to play in 137 games with 137 starts, tallying 10,785 yards on 2,939 carries, 2,293 receiving yards on 282 receptions, and 79 total touchdowns.

Those numbers include the nine playoff game appearances, but talking about George’s career doesn’t do it enough justice. You have to see this for yourself. Here’s his feature on NFL Network’s A Football Life. The clip is courtesy of NFL Films’ official YouTube channel. Watch and learn what being a true professional is all about guys and gals!

George left a mark on Tennessee Titans football that will never be forgotten.

Eddie’s last game in a Titans uniform was played on January 10th of 2004 during a playoff loss to the New England Patriots, but his fingerprints are still all over this franchise as he’s the owner of almost 30 franchise records including career rushing yards and attempts, the most 1,000 yard rushing seasons, and total touchdowns. He’s the reason no Titan or any member of the Ohio State Buckeyes will ever wear the number 27 again.

Before there was “King Henry”, there was Eddie George. He’s already in the Titans/Oilers Ring of Honor. Canton, Ohio will be calling soon. There’s no doubt about that one.
