In the late 90s and early 2000s, Eddie George and Ray Lewis had some epic, physical battles. Those battles were well documented each and other every time the Titans and Ravens faced each other during that era, and If you remember, before NFL realignment, the Titans and Ravens used to play twice a year as both were in the AFC Central, which made these two teams huge rivals.
This weekend Ray Lewis, Randy Moss, and five others were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and one day both Lewis and Moss believe George and former Jaguars RB Fred Taylor will be joining them.
Lewis and Moss talked about George and Taylor’s candidacy for the Hall at the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Enshrinees’ Roundtable in Canton, Ohio on Sunday.
Taylor may have a better case than George. Taylor is the 17th all-time leading rusher. Also, of the 16 guys ahead of Taylor, 13 are already in the Hall of Fame. The only one that is eligible but currently not in the Hall is Edgerrin James, so Taylor has an exceptional case.
Concerning George, he is the 27th all-time leading rusher in NFL history. George had a great career and carried the load for those Titans’ teams in the late 90s and early 2000s. Considering that Terrell Davis(55th all-time leading rusher) recently got in the Hall with over 7k rushing yards, I think George has a great case, too.
