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.

Jeff George Is Totally Gonna Fix Everything That’s Wrong With Christian Ponder

The Vikings are one of several teams in the league that might be a contender if not for the fact that their quarterback sucks. Okay, perhaps that’s a little unfair.

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.
