You have a College-system back in Brown.
I agree about the dismal projection of performance from the Titans RB, and believe the loss of George is going to hurt them in more than just yards per carry that Titans fans keep alluding to. Eddie gave more than just 110% on the field. He gave 110% off of the field too. He was a great leader, and midway through the season when Brown is hobbling, and Smith is coming up short, and the crowd in the "Coliseum" is unusually quiet, when they had been chanting "Eddie, Eddie, Eddie.." seasons before - those big unfilled shoes will belong to #27 for Dallas.
The only RB situation worse to me in the NFL, would be Miami's because of Williams departure.
