    We miss you, Steve!

    I feel like the Titans should retire his number. Ok, so Steve didn't put up Hall of Fame numbers, but he is the only franchise QB we've ever had and he destroyed his body for us.

    People always talk about him being a great player, but no one ever mentions how great his hairline was too.

    F**k dude, I'm not ashamed to admit it, I actually teared up when I found out about his death.

    As Titans fans, we will never forget Steve McNair. I was 9 years old the first time I watched Steve, and it was he & George that made me a Titans fan. I'm forever grateful for the memories he gave us. RIP to a legend.

    I totally agree with you. Those phone calls, when you can do absoutly nothing at all, are horrible.

    That was one of the last times I remember crying. I started seeing a lot of posts on Facebook and I ran downstairs distraught, telling my family to turn the TV on because I heard McNair had been killed. My dad turned on the news and it was the first thing on. I started tearing up and my grandma was so confused. lol

    I still can't believe he's gone and I still don't rule out the possibility that it was a double murder. I think that case was closed way too soon. The whole thing still seems so surreal. I can't believe it's been four years. His death is actually the first thing I think about every 4th of July, though there are more important things that should come to mind before.

    On a side note... The idiots who are in charge of the entertainment (music) at the games really ****ed up as always. They dedicated a video to him and used Green Day's "Good Riddance" as the song. I was not amused - and not because I hate Green Day (although I do); it was because that is a sarcastic breakup song. I think we also did a video for him with a Nickelback song. Unbelievable. Can't make this stuff up.

    I was 10 when I first watched Steve and the Titans. I didn't really have a team and he made me watch in awe as he played. He IS the reason why I am a Titans fan. I remember when he died I was at a friends house because they needed to change and another friend of mine texted me and said "dude I'm sorry about Steve dying" so of course I didn't believe him and ran to the computer and saw that it had happened, tried not to but I couldn't help it and started crying. This may sound stupid bit he is the reason why I am such a big football fan. We will never see a guy play through so much injuries and pain ever again.

    R.I.P. #9 you will be forever missed
