Eddie George 2003
2003 Tennessee Titans 16 Games 16 GS 312 Carries 1031 yds 3.3 ypc 27 Long 5 Td's 2 20+ 52 1st downs 22 rec. 163 yds

Emmitt Smith 2002
2002 Dallas Cowboys 16 Games 16 GS 254 Carries 975 yds 3.8 ypc 30 Long 5 TD's 5 20+yds 48 1st Downs 16 rec. 89 yds

So let me see, Emmitt had better ypc and was more of a threat to break longer runs--sure does make sense to me.
He's a great "safety net" so to speak for Julius Jones.
