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.
