Daily SAll-Star: Steve McNair
Yesterday, Air McNair decided to finally take off his tattered shoulder pads and call it a career. One of the most successful quarterbacks of his generation, McNair was known for being tough as nails and creating something out of nothing (kinda like the black Brett Favre).
McNair will be best remembered for leading the Titans to within 1 yard of a Super Bowl victory (see below) and for sharing the MVP trophy with Peyton Manning in 2003. He is easily the best QB in Titans/Oilers history save for Warren Moon. He now leaves a vacancy in the Ravens' backfield that will have to be filled by either Troy Smith, Kyle Boller, or a drafted QB. Ouch.
So here's to you, Steve. You were an undeniable leader on and off the field who had a great career. Kudos.
