Most Dominant Year: 2001

Three yards and a cloud of dust is bad. Five yards and half a first down? Not so bad. And that's what 2001 coverboy Eddie George routinely delivered. In his heyday, the Titans star was a bowling ball of a tailback, and EA replicated him to a tee in the video game. This was years before Madden introduced gang tackling, too, so that meant one man had to bring down 240 pixelated pounds all by himself, hardly an easy task. Our lone regret is that George retired in 2004; we would have loved to see him bowl over two and three defenders in this new era of group tackles.
