Just heard the news. I'm stunned...
R.I.P. ....McNair was my idol when he played around the age i was 10-12
i am in a state of shock and disbelief right now. steve would never hurt anyone. i hope that the police find the coward that did this and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.
I'm absolutely distraught. Steve was a symbol of all the characteristics that I believe in and try to keep both on the field and in life in general. RIP Steve 'Air' McNair
I'm gonna miss Steve. He was a warrior.
I wish the best for the police and family regarding the investigation
McMVP's leap for a TD against the squeelers, comming off back sugery, comes too mind. Never scared too pull it down and run, or dump it off on #89 if he got a glimpse of him. No problem handing off to EG 30+ times, or dropping back 40+ times. Did not whine and complain when things did not go his way on the field. Grabbing a chainsaw and clearing trees after the downtown tornado, Fishers shock at seeing his QB wielding a chainsaw on TV. Spending the afternoon watching city workmen digging in his front ditch.
There will never be a tougher QB.
Wow, shocking and sad news. He will be remembered as one of the greatest Titans (if not THE greatest Titan) ever. He will also be remembered for being one hell of a tough guy. I remember the story about how he had to sleep in a chair for months because he couldn't lie down without intense pain in his sternum.
If this this report is true, then it sounds like maybe his wife shot him. It's just speculation on my part, but it seems like a logical conclusion. If it wasn't a murder-suicide and the woman was his girlfriend (but not his wife), then surely his wife would be a prime suspect. Then again, it could have been a botched robbery or something. We'll know soon enough. Sadly, it doesn't really matter exactly how it happened. Steve is gone and the football world has lost one of its best.
Like so many on here I started as a boy who liked the Oilers/Titans. By the time Steve McNair finished his days in Nashville, I was a full blown die-hard fan. They played smashmouth football and demanded respect in those days and they did it with class. I was always proud to say I was a Titans fan.
Lots of sad people in here today. It was the first place I came when I heard the news... Heartbreaking news.
Sorry guys, gals.
