Steve McNair, former NFL quarterback for the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens, was found shot to death in his condo on Saturday, July 4. He was only 36.
I'm not a fan of either team but I always found McNair exciting to watch. He could run and throw well, and he was probebly the toughest guy I'd seen (he went a whole month without practicing due to injuries and still started and played every game, and won all 5 as well!) In interviews he seems intelligent, caring, truely a nice guy. The NFL needs more publicity about people like this! I remember one of the most exciting Super Bowls I'd ever seen, Titans and Rams, where he drives them down the field to attempt the tying score, scrambling every which way and passing, only to see his receiver get tackled a yard short as time expired.
