Eddie George's résumé is loaded. At Ohio State, he won a Heisman Trophy, Walter Camp Award, Maxwell Award, Doak Walker Award and was an All-American, among other things. In the NFL, he won an Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, made four Pro Bowls and made an All-Pro Team, among other things.
But the two plays that will always be at the top of George's mind did not even involve him touching the ball. With that said, the "Music City Miracle," the Titans' last-second lateral play that won a 2000 wild-card playoff game against the Bills, and "The Tackle," Rams linebacker Mike Jones' stop of Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson just short of the goal line on the final play of Super Bowl XXXIV, are two of the NFL's most famous moments.
ThePostGame relived both with George, who played nine NFL seasons, eight with the Oilers/Titans:
"Frank [Wycheck] throws the ball across the field and I'm like, 'Okay, what kind of shenanigans is this?" he remembers. "Let's just kneel on the football. We got some time, kick a field goal in.' Little did I know that they worked on this play [the] last six, seven weeks. And [they] formed a beautiful wall. Kevin Dyson [runs] down the left sideline, scores the touchdown. [The referees] go through the whole dramatics of reviewing the play, and they deemed it a touchdown.
"It was chaos everywhere, so, you know, to experience that as a player was truly amazing."
George cannot tell the highs of the story without bringing in the lows. After beating Buffalo, Tennessee edged the Colts and Jaguars to meet the Rams in the Super Bowl. George did his part, rushing 28 times for 95 yards and two touchdowns. He also had two receptions for 35 yards. But the final play was in Dyson's hands.
"To lose it again, in the Super Bowl, falling one yard shy in dramatic fashion, also hurt. So it's the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. It's heartbreaking, you know? It's tough to stomach that. It's tough to lose in the last seconds when you put everything out there on the field.
"It's a lesson learned, and that's what I wanted to share today, is that through the agony of defeat, I'm able to learn a lesson to finish in everything else I do. So any time I feel tired or I'm so close to the finish line [and] I don't wanna finish something, or I want to take a shortcut here, or not go to practice here, or work on my lines there, I think of [Kevin Dyson] stretching out for that touchdown to go into overtime. It pushes me a little further. So yes, there is a blessing in all of that."
George was in full motivation form while talking to ThePostGame from the Russell Athletic "Team On" brand activation at the end of July in New Jersey. George, who has also established himself as a respected actor, playing lawyer Billy Flynn in Chicago on Broadway earlier this year, is a spokesman for the brand. Along with talking to the media, George worked on drills with varsity players at Union City High School (New Jersey).
