Eddie Better Watch Out

Discussion in 'Professional Football' started by NOTREDAMECHIEF, Aug 15, 2004.

  1. Pre-season game with Eddie starting and JJ in late but JJ has the Cowboy boards buzzing.....

    Eddie George- 5 carries for 12 yards
    Julius Jones - 8 carries for 57

    The kids gonna be good!

    buckeyefool COBRA!!!!

    And who was Eddie in with compared to Who Jones was in with? There have been plenty of guys who look like world beaters in the preseason only to not touch the ball at all during the regular season

    Buck up friends, and show some compassion for the downtrodden goldenhomers. But for the grace of God (or something like that) it could be us trying to salvage a sense of program success by scouring the NFL for the occasional alum who is (maybe) going to secure a starting spot.

    I think Eddie's just like The Bus; a great power runner on the back end of his career.
     
  10. You are so right, but the problem is it not the "occassional domer"
    there in fact is alot which really ticks me off at the lack of success over the last 10 years.....

    No doubt. I would assume that you'll be back eventually (I'm thinking around 4-5 years), if only because a lot of HS kids are intrigued by the national following and tradition. Right now though, you're not plucking away the 5-stars like you used to.

    If I were an ND fan, I'd want to see the program go back to old school football, and stop messing around with all the fancy-shmancy crap.
     
  12. Gotta give credit when it is due though!

    Will Smith is the man he is playing VERY WELL!!

    That guy was just a beast on the field since his sophomore year (3-year starter). From what I understand, some pro scouts considered him a little undersized, but he's got all the power he needs to go with his tremendous speed and versatility. The Saints made a very smart pick there - the best value of the first round in my opinion. In a few years, a lot of teams that picked earlier and bypassed Smith are going to let out a collective "D'oh!"

    That's alright, grad. A lot of us laughed at it, along with Jax's SOS remark.
