The scary thing was McNair was the best offensive player the Titans had anyway. When McNair was on the fence about returning after the sternum surgery, I bet Fisher & Co stressed the offense would be designed around keeping him healthy just to get him to stay after the team purged the roster. McNair was never very accurate. Often times it was due to injury but hitting a receiver in stride was rare for a long time. He improved his MVP season but never was as consistent as what you would think Chow would need for a short, timing offense. It just wasn't a good fit, IMO. I don't buy into this. I think McNair was never one with the best work habits and would never be accused of being a student of the game but I did see him work with the rookie WRs a few times after training camp sessions. Where I think the problems arose was when McNair wasn't practicing during the season at all due to his injuries. And the rookie WRs were hurt as well. "Brat vet"? I don't think McNair ever pouted. When he had receivers clearly not running the right route or making reads, he never pointed a finger. He had defenders in his face with a three-step drop and he never complained the OL was pathetic at times last season. When he missed practice, it was due to his own injuries. As to his poor play, he was still the best offensive player on the field for the Titans last season which shows how much the Titans offense relied on McNair year after year. I clearly think he lost a step but I'm not going to place total blame on McNair when he had limited talent/experience around him, no running game and a defense who couldn't keep him in the offensive game plan. Just about every player -- past, present and future -- talks about how McNair made their game better because they wanted to play hard for a guy who put it on the line each game. I think McNair could have done a better job when the team needed him to step up and lead during the week but I think you've gone to the extreme here in blaming him for a lot which was beyond his control.
