I admit that I'm disappointed that Eddie George is a Titan no more. It's an irony that for a guy who was virtually fumble-free, had this deal fumbled so publically by both himself and the Titans organization. I would have loved to see Eddie retire as a Titan, but I guess it's not to be. Of course, being a Dallas Cowboy-hater, I am sick to my stomach to think he might sign with the evil empire in Dallas. Please, Eddie...they already made me turn on Jason Witten! Not you also!
On a related note, The Tennessean's David Climer offered up this interesting take on Eddie's departure from the team.
UPDATE 5:00 PM CST. Well, it looks like Eddie took a one-year deal worth about the same as he would've made with the Titans to go and play for the Evil Empire in Dallas. Interesting since Eddie said he wanted a two-year deal here and was offered the same money. I have to imagine a lot of this fiasco rests with Lamont Smith, his agent. Oh well, Eddie ain't a Titan anymore and he's playing for my least favorite team. Here's hoping the Redskins take care of business and hold you to less than 100 yards when you play them twice this year and that you guys lose both games. Hope you enjoy meeting Mr. Arrington, who is gonna be like Javon "The Freak" Kearse, only this time, he'll have his sights set on stopping you running. Good luck to you, Eddie. You're gonna need it in Dallas.
Only 46 Days Left!

In 46 days, the Vols kick off the 2004 campaign. It's getting to be that time of year when my football withdrawl syndrome (FWS) is really kicking in.
On that note, Vols' trio first-team preseason All-SEC which is good news, but in the news that has me worried categorgy, Banks to sit in UT's first three games. I worry about this story and how it's played out. Last week, it looked bad for Banks being on the team at all this year and then later this week, I heard players were rallying around him. I understand he has all the talent in the world at reciever, but I just hope Fulmer made the right choice. We do not need another Kelly Washington-like distraction!
