KSK torches the childish speculation running rampant in some surlier quarters of the internets. I could see these being copy and pasted from Florio and PFT comments and not be surprised one bit.
Paul Kuharsky knocks it out of the park, per usual.
T-Rac's Posse says it all. It'll be a while before I can read this without getting choked-up.
Tune into 103.3 WKDF (which broadcasts Titans games during the season) tonight at 6:00 p.m. central for a special tribute show of clips and memories covering Steve's career. The show will be hosted by Mike Keith and Titans Radio, and may possibly he heard here, but don't hold me to that. The Titans Radio affiliate in Chattanooga, 102.3 WGOW, will also be running a tribute to McNair tomorrow morning (h/t to gramsey712).
