Nobody with the Titans will ever wear Eddie George's No. 27 nor the No. 9 of the late Steve McNair again, players who helped the franchise through its difficult relocation from Houston to Tennessee to its lone Super Bowl berth.

 

Titans owners announced the franchise will retire both numbers on September 15th at their home opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

 

George, who played eight seasons with this team and made four Pro Bowls, remains both the franchise's all-time leading rusher with 10,009 yards and all-time scrimmage yards leader with 12,153.

 

McNair, drafted a year before in 1995 at No. 3 overall, played 11 of 13 seasons here and remains the franchise's second all-time leading passer (27,141 yards) behind only Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon (33,685).

 

McNair and George together went 80-48 for a .625 winning percentage with only one losing season at 7-9 in 2001 and the 2000 Super Bowl, two AFC championship games, four playoff appearances and two division titles.
