Wished someone would release an interesting ILB.

Much respect for Willis McGahee. Even if he can't find another gig, he's done what many thought was impossible. Ten years, 4 thousand yard seasons, basically trouble free.

This was a guy who could have collected a million dollar insurance check & never played a down.

Man.

When I saw that hit on his knee in college, I never thought he'd play another down. I never thought he'd walk right after that. For him to have the career he's had is a helluva testament to his intestinal fortitude.

Exactly. That's a man not looking for a handout, determined to be somebody (didn't happen, but good try), wanting to earn everything he gets.

Whuuut? Dadgum TK, what does it take? The man did well. VERY, VERY WELL! I can't recall how many times I heard his name called on the play by play announcers. And that's not for screwin' the pooch. In my book, you're correct, he wasn't looking for a handout. But not being a "somebody"? I guess that's where I have a disconnect.

Please explain how he failed at being an NFL "somebody". idonno:

Like I said, very nice career. Only 2 pro bowls, no all pros, no championship, never led the league rushing... no way will he be in the HoF discussion, ever.. never thought of as a top back, maybe not even top 10 (could've been, don't remember).

MjD has done more than McGahee & he'll probably be forgotten soon. No disrespect to McGahee, like I said, he's done more than most.

He broke the top 10 3x but I don't disagree with your point. His best finish was 8th (twice).

he will be known for having a solid career.
If I remember right, the last few years he's been a big redzone back and short yardage guy and has the occasional long run.

I still remember watching that game in college ....*cringes*
