Did you ever see him play? He was one of the slowest backs I've ever seem, so no threat to break a long run. For a "power back", he was horrible at breaking tackles. He only averaged 4 yards a carry once, maybe twice, in his career. He usually averaged in the low to mid 3 yards, and wasn't even effective moving the chains. The only thing that was impressive about him, is the fact he took all these hits but avoided any major injuries. I don't remember him missing any games. But the other side of that is, he took those hits because he was 6'3 and played like it. He never learned to get low, had no wiggle to avoid tackles.
The only reason he got to 10,000 yards was his lack of injury, and Jeff Fisher's lack of a creative offense that would do very little but hand the ball to George.
