    I don't think I've ever heard it. The romanticism for him was lost on me when he started doing badly for the Titans, then went to the Ravens. I appreciate what he did for the Titans, and was a great player for a few years, but outside of that, he pretty much sullied his own name. And it sucks that it had to go down that way.. But a lot of times, karma bites you in the behind.

    People who choose to stay out of trouble don't often get caught up in crazy things like this.

    If Ray Lewis can be a beloved player in the NFL, so can Steve... and Ray had one of these Football Life episodes too.

    Ray continued to play football for a high level for about a decade or more after his charge (which he was cleared of) and nobody thinks he's a saint. McNair pulled the wool over all of our eyes by portraying himself as a class act through and through, and his murder had that all come crashing down before all of our eyes. That's the worst.. getting killed caught in the act. No chance to defend or explain the situation. It's sad for everyone affiliated with him, and every Titans fan who supported him through the years.

    Unfortunately having people over for American Horror Story but will have it recorded and will watch afterwards. They're going to touch on his death I think for more than a few minutes unfortunately and I hope it's 95% Titan footage and just a little of him as a Raven.

    Steve Mcnair was stopped at an Exxon station on Broadway in 2003 extremely drunk with a loaded gun in his car. None of us would have gotten off for that but he did and he went on to a co mvp.

    Star nfl players are judged by a different standard than the rest of us. Driving drunk with a loaded gun is against the law but screwing around on your wife is not.

    Honestly though i don't recall Steve ever lecturing people about how to behave or pretending to be a saint.

    I'm still kind of angry with Steve.. just think it was entirely unfair for him to be doing what he was doing. Now his kids get to grow up.. instead of finally spending time with their father after 13 NFL seasons, his poor choices took that way from them. Now they get to mourn a man who missed so much of their lives, instead of being able to grow up and establish a real relationship with him. He chose sex and alcohol over his family.

    Really sad.
