Eddie George

Madden 2001

George is an anomaly in this gallery, because he actually had a career-year following his cover appearance in 2000 (1,962 total yards and 16 TDs). In 2001, however, he rushed for less than 1000 yards for the first time in his career and scored just 5 TDs. He never averaged better than 3.4 yards per carry in any successive season.
