    SUMMARY: Titans Coach Jeff Fisher was asked whether LenDale White reminded him of Eddie George. "Yes he does," said Fisher. "He’s very strong. You have seen him. Inside, outside, runner with excellent hands. He will pass protect. All those things. He has a chance, in time, to be that type of back. He really has a chance to be that. I think it’s well noted that we have some needs on the other side of the ball, but this was an opportunity that we could not pass up." Offensive Coordinator Norm Chow also feels White has a chance to be something special. "He’s a tremendous talent that’s been forced to be very patient," said Chow. "I am confident that he’s got the desire and determination to prove a lot of those clubs that passed on him were wrong."

    I read on TitansOnline that Chow and Fish stayed around for a bit to start scripting plays specifically for Vince

    scary to think about what he's capable of accomplishing with a steady load

    this is the only game last year where he had the ball 20+ times

    24 carries
    179 yards
    7.5 ypc
    38 long
    4 TD's

    Thank you sir, may I have another
    yes, I'll take some of that

    Draft envy is setting in amongst the other 30 teams (You can't really count the Texans in there anymore).

    We were lucky to get White. I love it! I can't believe so many teams would pass on him.:ha:

  9. and whats going to be great is that he will probally have a great work ethic now being as he has that 31 team chip on his shoulder and he wants to prove all of them wrong about passing him up, and i think that mario williams has been set up to be a major bust being as he went from a late 1st round to #1 pick overall in 1 1/2 weeks or so, ima make a thread about it now =]

    yeah i agree... i think when a player gets drafted gets later than he expects he tends to play with a litte more "umph"... i'm not sure if he was highly rated coming out, but I would venture to say that because he was drafted so late T.O. felt like he had something to prove and "wall ah" a pro-bowler was born... a jerk .. but nonetheless a probowler
