Somebody already posted today as his date of death on Wikipedia, but there is an error message in red following it.

Steve McNair is a retired NFL Quarterback. He played for the Houston Oilers, stuck with the franchise when it moved to Nashville and was renamed the Tennessee Titans, and played one year for the Baltimore Ravens before retiring. He (in)famously gave up his Pro Bowl spot to allow Vince Young to become the first rookie QB to make the Pro Bowl since Dan Marino.

Sorry, but McNair is not a child-molesting rock star, a wife-murderer, an unqualified candidate for President, or a rapist who’s bitten off someone’s ear.

I’m listening to ESPN Radio’s live feed online and hopefully they’ll say something important soon—especially if there is confirmation from a local news source in Nashville, TN.

Factor this with all of the Palin stuff yesterday and other things in this country.

I am about ready to throw up and cry. or cry and throw up.

Steve was one of the QB’s and athletes I idolized as a kid.

Unfortunately, it does sound like he was a good guy.

Why doesn’t this happen to the scumbags of the world? I guess it does, sometimes, but it seems unfortunately uneven.

Exactly why does “the Palin stuff yesterday” have you “ready to throw up and cry?” Palin resigned so she could start establishing a political and fundraising base in the contiguous 48 states. It’s impossible to run for president from Alaska. You have to have a presence in the main part of the country. She couldn’t both govern Alaska and establish herself as a serious presidential candidate.

You should be elated at the Palin news and saddened by the McNair news.

He was a tough competitor for us here in Nashville.

Horrible news.

Didn't say I didn't care, just wanted to know who he was and as another poster pointed out, why is it news to care about.

Not everyone is a sports fan, sorry for your loss, sheesh

Because it’s there.

Perhaps you should get a hobby. For example, changing your tagline in a thread where you claim not to be a sports enthusiast. For someone who isn't a sports enthusiast you seem to feel strongly enough about Monday Night Football.

I think it was McNair whose mother was a flight attendant who switched flights to be present when Steve signed his contract with the Oilers...saving her life. The flight she missed crashed and all on board were killed.

Callousness is rarely an attractive trait...never when it concerns the death of a decent human being.
