    very true, Titans had a good team, it is too bad that it took Eddie to get hurt before Fisher started to open up the offense and let McNair do some things, it might have prolonged Eddie's career.

    ***************************
    LA TIMES
    This well-written article exemplifies what a toll being a RB in the NFL can take on a body. A significant portion of this article includes Bush / George comparisons / contrasts. Certainly, no one expects Bush to be used in the same manner as George. At the same time, it is quite evident that George's comments and the meat of the article emphasize the importance of DURABILITY, and puts into question how and if Bush can sustain the "trauma" of the NFL which is brutal compared to the kid's pay that he has so far been exposed. When routinely playing against 250 to 350 pound strong, quick and powerful opponents, how long can even the best scheme alllow a RB to "avoid" the trauma............especially when comparing a 6'3" 240 pound bull with a 6'0" 200 pound tackling dummy?

    In my mind.
    Eddie was in an Eisen interview not too long ago and he said that his health was still good, he just lost some of his speed to be able to play in the NFL.
