Remembering Steve McNair

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Today marks the 5 year anniversary of Steve McNair's death.

Rob talked about it in the links, but I wanted to make a separate post remembering Steve McNair.  I will never forget picking up my phone while out on a pontoon boat with some friends and seeing missed calls from my dad, August and gramsey.  I knew that something had happened with the Titans, but I had no idea I was about to learn of a tragedy.

I remember spending the rest of the day watching local news as the story unraveled.  It was surreal then, and it still feels that way 5 years later.

McNair is still my favorite player in franchise history.  I hope that one day another player will come along that I like more but that bar is set so high that I am not sure it is possible.

My favorite McNair memory is this game from 2002 against the Giants.  He missed practice all week because of a variety of injuries, but he came out on Sunday and played a spectacular game.  He capped off a late 4th quarter drive with a TD pass to Frank Wycheck, and then he ran a draw for a 2-point conversion to tie the game and send it to overtime.

Leave your favorite McNair memory in the comments.
