Eddie George is arguably the most recognizable and greatest Tennessee Titans/Oilers players ever. He was part two of the most infamous events in NFL history (Music City Miracle and Kevin Dyson’s stretch play in the Super Bowl). Eddie was on the cover of the Madden video game. Needless to say, he’s one of the most accomplished running backs of this generation.
Eddie spoke to me and opened up about his life after football, spirituality, and shared life advice. He also talks about his commitment and approach to acting. The infamous one-yard short Super Bowl, his favorite current running back, Super Bowl predictions and much more.
This is one of my all-time favorite and insightful interviews I’ve ever done. Eddie was absolutely captivating and I can genuinely say I learned and took away a lot from our conversation.
There is so much to take away from what he said. I found him to be very engaging, super insightful, very well-rounded human being and definitely inspiring.
I related to his approach to acting when he spoke about wanting and learning to be a better storyteller and communicator. He spoke about how vital communication is in acting and life. That’s such simple, yet profound way of thinking. I really commend him for not taking the easy road and trying to make it through his fame, instead he started from the ground up, learning the craft.
Even though he has a small part in Another Version of You. He had such a deep understanding for the character and story, and he was able to elaborate on it. I was really impressed with his commitment to this role and movie, even if it was a small part.
I enjoyed hearing Eddie speak about the NFL and mentioning Derrick Henry as the most underrated running backs and one of the best in the league (this was said prior to him going on a historic playoff domination). Eddie clearly knows the game and it’s players well, so not too surprising he would identify a great running back, even if the mainstream media didn’t recognize it first.
One of the biggest takeaways for me was the amount of activities and organizations Eddie is involved with. He’s like a jack-of-all-trades. I had no idea he was even a DJ? His involvement as a minister to his business of advising athletes about career and money choices, he does a lot of good work in the communities and makes an impact, especially in the Nashville area.
I couldn’t have been more impressed with Eddie George about how insightful, bright and accomplished individual he is. Very motivating and inspiring and I felt he was very genuine. It was a pure pleasure to get to speak to him and I’m thankful he was so gracious with his time. Class act and humble. As a longtime fan of his, this was a neat experience for me.
