    I just choose to remember McMVP as a Titan and not the whatever he was to his wife and kids.



    I wont even blame him cause whatever it was she apparently was not willing to divorce over it.

    I don't "not forgive him". I just don't think he was that great of a player. And may have been a worse person/citizen.

    Yet at the same time, he's sadly the best QB this team has had... in the best years. So I'm cool with people paying homage.

    uh? What?

    Did he kill someone that I'm not aware of?

    He had summer camps for kids like every year when he was in TN, I haven't seen anyone else around here offer such a thing on a yearly basis.

    There are some people who just don't get that some marriages don't work...especially among young, wealthy people. That self-righteous high-horsing is worth **** all. That's what you get with Bible-belted, redneck ignorance. Nobody here has any idea at all why Mc9 had a mistress, nor is it anybody's business to judge him for it. AFAIC anyone who does gets the Automatic Douchbag Award....I am absolutely INTOLERANT of Murica's nosey hillbilly busibody felchwads.

    Constantly driving drunk would be the main reason I knock his character...

    But I don't expect football players to be high moral characters- so that's not the reason I don't care for him.

    My beef with Steve is with him as a football player.

    Everyone Tupac's the guy. He was an average player that got way too much credit for playing hurt.

    Has less to do with him cheating on his wife, has more to do with him sticking his dick in crazy and leaving behind 2(3?) young boys because of it.

    Love him on the field, and I have no doubt he was a good person going through a hard time, but god damn man.

    He wasn't that great of a player in the sense that he only had a couple of elite years... but there's no denying he was a good QB. His body just couldn't handle much anymore after 2003.

    But the guy absolutely sacrificed his body for the sake of the team and the fans. He could barely tie his shoes all week long, yet he went out and gave it all. The play before we came up a yard short in the big game... my god, that was like the Eli escape, but with much more athleticism. Not as big of a play, of course, but every bit as much heart and effort.

    That's what everyone loved about him... that warrior aspect. Heart of a champion, and it is truly a shame he did not get a ring. Fisher's fault 100%.

    2002 and 2003 were truly special years by him. 2001 was really the first time we saw him explode as a passer because our team sucked ballsack and the coaches finally realized that Mac9 had to go out and put the team on his back to win us games.

    As I've said before... years we could have won a Super Bowl: 1999, 2000, 2003, and 2008. It is truly tragic that we came away with 0. Imagine if we had just won the years we were absolutely supposed to: 2000 and 2008. Road to the Super Bowl goes through Nashville, and we sh*t it all away to the mother****ing Ravens and Dilfer/Flacco. Unbelievable.

    Makes me sick to hear people say the 2000 Ravens defense is the best all time. Guess who had the #1 total defense that year... Titans. Guess who had the #1 passing defense... Titans. We were ranked 2nd in scoring defense with 11.9 PPG to the Ravens 10.3, so they had us beat there. But if we go on to win the damn big game like we should have, that would be us they're talking about.

    2013 Seahawks D > 2000 Ravens D. Can't truly judge the Bears because I wasn't alive then.

    Can't talk about this sh*t anymore. lol
