Most the posters on this board without arguement are 18 years old and even though George retired recently (2 or 3 years ago) they dont have a clue how he played outside of a stat sheet or highlight clips. George carried them to the playoffs alot of years in a row. He was a beast and noone liked to tackle him. 6'3 230 should not have the running back skills he had.

I easily take Eddie George, Tiki barely ever had his team in the playoffs.

But I also agree that neither should be in the Hall. If one goes it should be Eddie.

As running backs in their primes, I would take Eddie George over Tiki Barber.

Take Tiki Barber in his prime. Look at his stats for the years 2004, 2005, 2006. I'm not typing them. Take Eddie George's stats for his prime years 1998, 1999, 2000. I'm not typing them.

Eddie George was a BETTER RUNNING BACK for that teams style. Tiki was just a stat compiler like Dave Kreig/Drew Bledsoe. Eddie George got thrown under the bus.

If Eddie George started off his career as TERRRRIBLE as TIKI did instead of comming in getting 1300 yards, 340 carries a season he would have lasted longer and would have had a great top 10 running back type career.

He carried the Titans was their engine that could, then engine they road to the Super Bowl.

Tiki was good for a stretch of 5 years. Eddie George was a FORCE for 7. Eddie didnt score much..but score much more often that Tiki. Tiki was a great out of the backfield receiver Eddie was more than adequate.

I really think as someone said that style of offense needs to be determined before chosing.

But I like Eddie's style, leadership, thunderous style more than Tiki's somethin style.

Tiki Barber is way better. Eddie George only averaged like 3.5 ypc for his career. Sure he could yet 100 yards in a game, but it would take him like 30 carries. He really went downhill in his ypc average after having over 400 attempts in 2000.

You know how hard it is to be able to carry the ball 30 times in a game week after week? That's durability that rarely comes around.

Yeah, but by the time he was 28, he was washed up. And as history indicates, guys have over 400 carries in a season severely decline. So don't be surprised if and when Larry Johnson starts to go downhill severely fast. He was already 24 when he got to the NFL.

Eddie was better. Tiki was awesome those last 3 or 4 years though. Neither should be in the hall. What's my reasoning? Go loo at the list of all the hall of fame RBs so far and you'll agree.

i think tiki has a better shot at the hall just because of the way each ended their careers. George faded at the end of his career, while tiki had his best years at the end of his.

Not sure what George brings to the table that Tiki doesn't. I mean, George did not have one season with over 4 YPC.....and he is in a hall of fame discussion?

Tiki can be debated and as of right now I don't think he should be in, but he was a much better back than George.

Tiki isnt a winner. He never got the Giants anywhere and didnt really imerge as a RB until the end of his career.

Neither make the Hall of Fame. Its not baseball where everyone to ever make an all-star game seems to get in eventually.

Um, the hardest HOF to get into is the baseball HOF, what are you talkin about?

Tiki carried us to the playoffs in Eli's 2nd year.

And he was our offense the year we went to the SB in 2000. He's done his part, he's definately a winner.

Since when do we argue about the overall quality of borderline HOF players? How is this really relevant to anything? These guys aren't the same type of back, so comparisons in terms of yards per touch and such are skewed. The whole topic makes little sense to me.

That was a joke, PACK. Unfortunately, the debate between McNown and Couch is as relevant as the Eddie George/Tiki discussion.

Yeah, they won it last in 1908. The reason I say 100 is because if they don't win this year, it will be 99. Then, the earliest they can win is 2008. If and when they win in 08, it will be 100 years since the last time I won. So that's why I say that.

eddie george is way better. the first eight years of Teek slice's career were terrible and he had like 15-20 fumbles a year. eddi was solid for a career and was really the titans only weapon for most of his career.
