    Not just the franchise, in all of football.

    While I agree he does not belong in the HOF(I'd put him in the hall of really good) he had that IT factor. With him taking snaps, I never felt we were out of the game. I still remember the AFC divisional PO game in New England that he lead a near comeback(should have won but Drew Bennett drops that pass).

    Point is he was a line backer playing QB but he was a natural born leader. He made the players around him better, and I am wondering if we(the Titans) or the NFL will ever see this type of QB ever again? The ultimate tough man.

    Big Ben would be the closest thing since, hard to tackle/very tough. Brett Favre was a lot like McNair except better..

    Better question. Will we ever see another Warren Moon and stats like this:

    1984 NFL Houston Oilers 28 1 16 259 450 57.6 3338 12 14 2.7 3.1 208.6 7.4 76.9
    1985 NFL Houston Oilers 29 1 14 200 377 53.1 2709 15 19 4.0 5.0 193.5 7.2 68.5
    1986 NFL Houston Oilers 30 1 15 256 488 52.5 3489 13 26 2.7 5.3 232.6 7.1 62.3
    1987 NFL Houston Oilers 31 1 12 184 368 50.0 2806 21 18 5.7 4.9 233.8 7.6 74.2
    1988 NFL Houston Oilers 32 1 11 160 294 54.4 2327 17 8 5.8 2.7 211.5 7.9 88.4
    1989 NFL Houston Oilers 33 1 16 280 464 60.3 3631 23 14 5.0 3.0 226.9 7.8 88.9
    1990 NFL Houston Oilers 34 1 15 362 584 62.0 4689 33 13 5.7 2.2 312.6 8.0 96.8
    1991 NFL Houston Oilers 35 1 16 404 655 61.7 4690 23 21 3.5 3.2 293.1 7.2 81.7
    1992 NFL Houston Oilers 36 1 11 224 346 64.7 2521 18 12 5.2 3.5 229.2 7.3 89.3
    1993 NFL Houston Oilers 37 1 15 303 520 58.3 3485 21 21 4.0 4.0 232.3 6.7 75.2

    At least our current QB comes from the same school as Moon. Odd, Locker is the third starter From Washington the Oilers/Titans have had since I started following them.

    Bud never wanted to change them. He was under pressure from the league. I think he chose something ugly as an F-you to the NFL.

    Those unis were ugly. Not saying our current ones are much better but I'm not big on a baby/light blue.

    I'm a huge fan of our light blue. But as for the question, I'm sure we will. McNair was special because it was rare in his time. But with athletes getting more athletic and bigger with each decade ("gym rats") I'm sure we'll see something like McNair.

    There will never be another #9 on any team in the league. No one will ever put their body through that much pain and play through it week in and week out.

    That doesn't mean we won't find a better QB than him one day.
