Steve McNair to Retire Today

New, comments

Steve McNair has told the Baltimore Ravens that he will announce his retirement today at 12 p.m. central press conference. It was tough for a lot of us as Titans fans to take when he signed with the Ravens, but he is still probably my favorite Titan of all time.

I will have a lot more on him in the next few days. For now leave your favorite Air McNair memory in the comments. I will start. I will never forget the 2002 game against the Giants when he led the Titans to a 4th quarter comeback after not practicing for the entire week. He is one of the toughest quarterbacks to ever play the game and a true gamer in every since of the word.

Update [2008-4-17 14:17:1 by Jimmy]: Here is a quote from his press conference:

McNair said he walked up to Newsome recently and said, "I'm not going to pull your leg. Mentally, I can play two or three more years. Physically, I just can't get it back. I don't have the physical tools it takes to play this game at a high level. My mind was telling me yes, and my body was telling me, 'No, what are doing?'"
I think that about sums up what we have known for a couple of years now.
