Monday night is going to be a special night for a lot of reasons, and one of the biggest is because the Titans will be honoring three of the great Titans of all-time, Steve McNair, Eddie George, and Frank Wycheck, by adding them to the Ring of Honor with a ceremony at halftime.
“These are three of our greatest players. I am thrilled that they will go in together because they helped us create the great following that we have here in Tennessee and they had so much success together,” said Titans owner K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. “All three embody what being a professional football player should entail: hard work, heart, passion, effort and success. I look forward to seeing them return to LP Field and letting the fans show them their appreciation for their fantastic years of service.”
Those of us who have been fans of this team since it came to Nashville will always have a special place in our hearts for these 3 guys. In the 1999 playoffs alone who can forget Wycheck throwing the Music City Miracle, Eddie's long run to put the Colts away in the playoffs, and Air McNair making plays in the Super Bowl?
I doubt this fanbase would be as strong as it is today if it wasn't for the play and leadership of these 3. I hope those of you who are lucky enough to attend the game will make a ton of noise when they are introduced.

Frank Wycheck (1995-2003), who made three Pro Bowl appearances, holds the franchise record for consecutive games with a reception (99, 1996-2002) and became only the fourth tight end in NFL history to record 500 receptions in a career.
