Jeff George, Jr. commits to Illinois

On Tuesday night, the Illinois Illini got a commitment from 2-star quarterback Jeff George, Jr. George is the son of former Illinois quarterback Jeff George. George had a fantastic career at Illinois and was the top overall pick in the 1990 draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Of course, George’s career didn’t go the way many thought or hoped, but that is a different story.

Jay Cutler won’t become this generation’s Jeff George

There’s an idea floating amongst the NFL Punditocracy that Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler could be this generation’s answer to Jeff George. It’s an interesting comparison, as Jeff George was signed by the Bears in 2004; but never took the field. He’s also a local Midwest guy- drafted #1 overall by his hometown Indianapolis Colts in 1990 out of Illinois. Jeff George had a distinguished...

Jeff George is Now Christian Ponder's Teacher

This week is one of the Minnesota Vikings Organized Team Activities, or OTA's, or I don't know what they're doing. I haven't been paying attention. I've been far too busy remembering that Purple Jesus is a god. But apparently things aren't going too hot for Christian Ponder. He threw three ugly interceptions during a practice round yesterday (Same with new...

Vikings Hire Interesting New Mentor for Christian Ponder--Jeff George?

The Minnesota Vikings are primed to become the next dominant team until free agency tears them apart. They have arguably the best running back in the NFL in Adrian Peterson and a talented young receiving duo in Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson. However, in order to ascend to the elite in the NFL hierarchy they need one thing--for quarterback Christian Ponder to step his game...

Jeff George present at Vikings OTAs as 'guest coach'

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jeff George has been a name that has tantalized Minnesota Vikings' fans since his 12-game run with the team back in 1999. George, the 12-year NFL quarterback and former first-overall pick in the 1990 draft, was back on the field for Minnesota this week. But hold off on any thought the 45-year-old is challenging for Christian Ponder's starting spot. George...

Tweets About Jeff George

The story and lure of Jeff George never stops being funny or gets old to me. I love to hear updates on Sportscenter in Week 8 when a team has lost their top two quarterbacks and Jeff George says that his arm is locked, loaded, and feeling better than ever. Sure, Jeff George hasn’t played in the NFL since 2001 but who’s to say that he couldn’t be better than Caleb Hanie? I decided...

The Man with the Golden Arm: Jeff George

  There are so many awesome things from this video about Jeff George: “He is a one in a million type athlete”. Good  call on this one. I’m sure that Peter King is thrilled that for the rest of history we have on record that he thinks that Jeff George was going to be amazing and that he could beat the 49ers and the Cowboys in the second half of the season. “Enough of a...
